Woman recovering from traumatic brain injury suffered in accident

An out-of-state woman who suffered severe injuries in a car accident and remained in a coma for one month is now making good progress. When she arrived at the rehabilitation unit of an out-of-state hospital around two months ago, she was unable to move her limbs. Out of all of the serious injuries that she suffered as a result of the accident, the most serious was a traumatic brain injury. When Maryland residents suffer a TBI as a result of other parties' negligence, they are typically entitled to file personal injury suits against the negligent parties.

Maryland woman dead after fatal auto accident

An auto accident that occurred recently ended with the death of one individual. The two-vehicle accident involved a car and a tractor-trailer, Maryland State Police reported.

Studies question whether head injury causes dementia

Several previous studies have displayed a link between those who suffer a head injury and those who develop dementia. A new study recently revealed that protein clumps -- amyloid plaques -- often seen in those with Alzheimer's disease -- can also be seen in the brains of individuals who received a head injury. When Maryland residents suffer a head injury due to the negligence of another party or parties, they are typically entitled to file a civil lawsuit for monetary damages against those deemed responsible.

A fatal car crash occurred recently that took the life of two individuals. The accident occurred on Valentine's Day in Ann Arundel County, police say.

An accident which occurred recently resulted in the serious injury of one woman. The accident occurred in Baltimore around 2 a.m. and involved a minivan and a pedestrian, police say.

Child injured due to medical malpractice

An out-of-state hospital has recently been ordered to pay $9 million as a result of a medical malpractice settlement. The suit involved a pregnant woman who went to the hospital, where she later suffered a birth injury, the suit alleges. When Maryland residents receive negligent care that results in their injury or death, they may be entitled to file a medical malpractice suit against the responsible party.

Hit-and-run accident results in fatality

An accident occurred recently in Maryland that took an individual's life. The Baltimore Police Department is still looking for the person they say caused the fatal hit-and-run accident, which occurred on a recent Monday night in January. When such accidents occur, the deceased victim's surviving family members are typically entitled to file a wrongful death suit against the party or parties believed responsible.

Hospital faces medical malpractice suit after death of teen

A 15-year-old out-of-state high school athlete was taken to the emergency room after he began complaining of shortness of breath and weakness. He received treatment for an asthma attack and was then sent home. Within a few hours, however, his heart went into cardiac arrest, and he died shortly thereafter. The hospital where he was treated as well as the physician who treated him are now facing a medical malpractice suit. When Maryland residents are injured or die due to negligent medical care, they or their loved ones are typically entitled to file a medical malpractice suit.
