There are many unavoidable accidents. However, it is rare that people involved in car accidents are following the rules of the road with no distractions. For example, many accidents can be traced back to a distracted driver, reckless driving or driving under the influence. Unfortunately in many of these accidents, people who are completely innocent of these trespasses are frequently victims. A recent accident in Maryland has caused the serious injury of two drivers, and police suspect the rules of the road were not being followed at the time.
Many people await the day when they are finally able to get their learner's permit. Unfortunately, these inexperienced drivers often have a large amount to learn before they are able to drive unattended. As a result, Maryland has regulations in place restricting the driving of those who only have learner's permits in an attempt to limit or prevent car accidents. In a recent case, authorities allege that a male who should not have been driving unsupervised crashed into a local cell phone store.
Firefighters know when they report for work every day that it could be their last shift due to the potential of death or serious injury. However, in a tragic twist, one firefighter lost in life in an after-hours accident in Maryland while he was driving his motorcycle. This incident is just the latest to support the need for increased driver vigilance in order to prevent motorcycle accidents.
With all the attention in the news recently about airplane crashes, many people might decide they would rather drive than fly. However, the truth remains that traveling by air is still safer than traveling by car. One major hazard while traveling by car is truck accidents. While most truck drivers are skilled and conscientious, these type of accidents still happen, with a large potential of causing death or serious injury. For example, one woman is in critical condition this morning after a collision with a tractor-trailer in Maryland.
Many people have different outlets to relieve stress. Some people spend time in the gym working out frustrations, while others might spend time with a different recreational activity, such as fishing. For others, stress relief can come as simply as hopping on their motorcycle on a nice day and going for a short trip; however, these people are in danger of motorcycle accidents, often by no fault of their own. It is important for other drivers to be aware of the presence of motorcyclists in order to prevent injury or death. The recent death of a Maryland cheerleader further highlights the need for automobile drivers to exhibit caution while on the road.
Football is a major pastime in this country. Even months before the football season starts, people begin preparing with countdowns to the first game and parades in celebration of the local professional team. It is a time associated with fun, food and excitement. However, football will likely remind one Maryland family of the severe injury that their daughter received as she participated in preseason activities. As car accidents tend to do, this family has been left with several medical bills.
Anyone who has driven on the Jones Falls Expressway in Baltimore will find it easy to imagine the kind of auto accident that recently sent a tow-truck driver over the edge of the guard rail and into the water. The breakdown lanes on that stretch of road are narrow, and it's been noted that police officers are reluctant to stop vehicles there because of safety concerns.
Spring has arrived in Maryland, and that means, among other things, that motorcyclists will be out and about enjoying the open air. With the freedom of the road comes risk, however, and unfortunately riders suffer serious injuries each year because of other drivers' negligence. Motorcycle awareness is a constant struggle in Maryland and throughout the U.S., and a recent accident in Frederick County illustrates why.
There is a big difference between preventative medical care and unnecessary medical care. For instance, if a doctor carries out an unnecessary surgery that causes injury to a patient, the patient has grounds for a medical malpractice lawsuit.
