It is difficult to lose a family member in any circumstances. However, when individuals experience an unexpected loss as a result of car accidents, the shock, along with their grief, may make it difficult for them to cope. One family is facing the reality of the death of their loved one after an accident in Anne Arundel County took his life. Unfortunately, police claim that his actions may have caused the accident.
Most everyone in Maryland who goes undergoes surgery does so knowing that there are certain complications that may naturally occur as a result. However, the vast majority of people have confidence that their surgeons will do everything possible to ensure their safety and future wellbeing. One out-of-state woman, however, claims that medical malpractice during a relatively routine surgery significantly impacted her life, and a jury recently agreed.
The end of a long winter means that more people will be on the roadways, taking advantage of the warm weather. Drivers of traditional motor vehicles must display even more vigilance as pedestrians, bicyclists and motorcyclists take to the streets. Failure to do so can have devastating consequences. For example, two separate motorcycle accidents have resulted in two fatalities in Maryland.
Many parents-to-be anxiously await the birth of their baby. Maryland parents who have experienced a complication-free pregnancy expect that their child will be born happy and healthy. Unfortunately, medical malpractice can result in a serious birth injury. One family claims that the decision made during the birth of their son caused his cerebral palsy.
Public campaigns over the last decade have attempted to educate the public about the dangers of drinking and driving. Thanks to these efforts, it is likely that everyone knows of the dangers of getting behind the steering wheel after consuming alcohol. Unfortunately, some people continue to engage in this risky behavior, putting their lives and the lives of others on the roadways at risk by causing preventable car accidents. One accident in Maryland further demonstrates these risks as it left one person injured and killed two others.
While most people are logically aware of their mortality, it is difficult to fully grasp the delicate nature of a human life. Most would hope that they will die after living a full, happy life after they have had a chance to settle their finances and say goodbye to friends and family. However, this is certainly not always the case. For example, car accidents can quickly cut short the life of a loved one. One family in Maryland is dealing with this reality after they recently lost their family member in a fatal motor vehicle accident.
There are likely millions of people across the country who choose to ignore posted speed limits each day. While some people may feel they are an impediment, speed limits are actually in place to preserve the safety of all people in or near the roadway. Unfortunately, speeding can often lead to serious or even fatal car accidents. Two men, one from Maryland, are currently in critical condition after an apparent high-speed accident in Anne Arundel County.
Areas on the East Coast have endured what many describe as a harsher than normal winter; fortunately, the warmer weather has brought a reprieve from the cold temperatures, snow and ice. As the area starts to thaw, more people begin to enjoy outdoor activities that the cold weather may have prevented over the winter. As a result, more motorcyclists, bicyclists and pedestrians may start to take advantage of Maryland roadways, meaning other drivers must remain particularly vigilant. Motorcycle accidents often lead to serious injury or death, and a man was recently killed in such an accident in Prince George's County.
The vast majority of medical personnel in Maryland are well-trained professionals who strive to ensure their patients receive the best possible care. Unfortunately, a single misstep can have serious consequences for a patient. One hospital in another state now faces several medical malpractice suits as a result of serious injury, or death, caused by a doctor's alleged actions.
Everyone has experienced a moment on the road when they realize that they may not be able to stop in time to avoid a rear-end collision. Unfortunately, such car accidents can cause serious injuries, or even death, to those involved. In addition to their physical injuries, those involved -- or their surviving families in the case of a fatality -- can face serious financial consequences as well. After a tragic accident in Maryland, for example, one family will have to cope, both emotionally and financially, with the death of their loved one.
