Boat operator charged with negligence

When it comes to boating, Maryland has much to offer. Creeks and rivers crisscross the state, and the Chesapeake Bay creates plenty of opportunity for sports and recreation. Operating a boat is a big responsibility, and a person must have a safety certification before operating a boat in Maryland. Negligence on the part of a boat operator can result in injuries and legal trouble. 

Victim struck in car accident dies

When a motor vehicle accident occurs in the state of Maryland, a special investigation team dedicated to accident reconstruction may be called upon to determine the details and cause of the crash. Accident investigators can search for witnesses, gather clues from the scene, and use evidence from traffic or surveillance cameras to try to determine what happened. An accident reconstruction team is currently looking into a car accident that resulted in the death of a pedestrian. 

Serious injury or death on the water may lead to civil action

This summer has certainly been a hot one, and with many pools and parks still closed or operating at a limited capacity, Maryland residents have flocked to the state's waters in record numbers. Boating is a popular pastime, but safety is key, especially when there are many boats, jet skis and tubes in one area. A boating accident can result in serious injury or even death. 

Did negligence lead to explosion in Maryland?

Maryland residents were recently shocked when news reports surfaced about a residential explosion that killed two, caused serious injuries to others, and reduced homes and belongings to rubble. Early reports confirmed that a utility gas explosion rocked a Baltimore neighborhood. Now, investigators are trying to determine if another party is responsible because of negligence or error. 

Theme park negligence: A sad summer tradition

Americans love theme parks, and each summer, Maryland families set out for an adventure at one of the hundreds of parks that dot the nation. Offering rides, over-the-top food and stage-quality shows, Dollywood has been a favorite amusement park for generations. The park is a charming throwback to a bygone era, but it may now be showing signs of negligence in light of recent personal injury reports

Did you suffer a personal injury on vacation?

Maryland residents were getting a bit stir-crazy, and now that things are beginning to reopen and summer has just begun, many families may be making travel plans. This time of year, staying at a hotel or resort with a nice pool can be a bonus. Parents do their best to reach their children about safety before visiting a pool, but what if the pool area itself is unsafe for visitors? A recent headline depicts a terrible scenario of personal injury.

Negligence causes boating accident

After the strangest spring that many can recall, Maryland is getting back to normal just in time for summer. As the weather heats up, many people are making plans to visit a beach, lake or river to cool off and have some fun. Fortunately, Maryland offers plenty of places for locals to beat the heat. Boating is one way to enjoy the water, but people should be aware that operator negligence can result in serious injury. 

Victim's family may be entitled to compensation

Last year, Maryland police began investigating the drowning death of a 76-year-old man. Until recently, little information about the tragedy was publicly available. It was revealed that another man present on the scene has been charged with crimes, including manslaughter, and the victim's family may want to seek compensation in a civil court. 

Researchers sniff out brain injury breakthrough

Severe injuries require immediate medical attention, and in emergency situations, doctors must work quickly to establish the best course of treatment. Brain injury victims may appear unresponsive, making it difficult for medical personnel to obtain critical information to properly diagnose and treat a brain injury. Maryland residents may be shocked to learn that the diagnostic error rate is about 40% in these situations. 

Brain injury recovery takes longer than previously suspected

Maryland loves sports, and the Old Line State has teams from early childhood all the way up to professional level. While fans enjoy showing up and rooting for a favorite team through thick and thin, the athletes that dedicate their time to training and playing the sports they love might be at risk. Every year an alarming number athletes suffer serious brain injury, and medical science is constantly trying to learn more about the serious risks involved with such injuries.
