Everyone loses as alleged racers face sentencing

There are no winners when it comes to justice after the wrongful and untimely death of your loved ones. At the end of the day, your loved ones are still gone. However, any time you hold people accountable for their actions, you set a precedent and send a message that has the potential to reach more people and save more lives.

How can I justify my suspicions of nursing home neglect?

As those we love age, they can develop needs that require extensive care. For many reasons, the family of the elderly person may not be able to provide the care they require. In those cases, the difficult decision to place their care in the hands of others is made. Sometimes this is the only solution to ensure those we love receive the care they need, and we must decide on the best nursing home for them to live in so that they can be properly cared for. Most nursing homes provide an excellent standard of care, and we are confident in knowing they are well looked after. However, even after careful selection of a home, elder abuse can happen. While the thought of such an occurrence can be extremely difficult to face, it is important that our suspicions are verified early on so that the abuse can stop.

Large truck accidents can have life-changing consequences

Large trucks and other commercial vehicles are governed by regulations set out by the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration. When vehicles are not in compliance with Maryland's motor carrier safety regulations, truck accidents can result, and the truck driver and/or the company they work for can be held liable. The annual death toll of people in cars and other passenger vehicles caused by a collision with a large truck is staggering; partly because many of the instances occur on busy highways and often involve multiple vehicles.

7 common causes of trucking accidents

Collisions involving commercial-sized trucks are among the most catastrophic on Maryland roads and highways. This is because they are very large, heavy and may be transporting hazardous cargo. In the event of an accident, each of these elements has the potential to cause enormous amounts of damage.

However, if you have recently been injured in a truck accident or lost someone in a fatal crash, knowing that a truck's size and speed made the accident worse is not necessarily going to help you. In these situations, it can be crucial to examine the actual cause of the crash.

Medical malpractice and holding the medical system accountable

When faced with an issue regarding our health, we trust our well-being to medical professionals. Much more often than not, this trust is well placed. However, there are instances where it is not. Health professionals are human, and they make mistakes. Unfortunately, these mistakes have far-reaching repercussions, affecting victims of medical malpractice in life altering, severe and sometimes shocking ways.

What are the signs of nursing home neglect?

One of the most emotional and difficult decisions a person can face is the decision to place a loved one in the care of others. To trust that your family members will be well taken care of, and their health and well-being made a priority is a lot of trust to place in nursing home staff. You have every right to expect a reasonable standard of care for those you love. Sometimes, unfortunately, that trust is misplaced.

Workers' Compensation looks at both sides

As an employee, being injured at work can cause tension between you and your employer and, depending on the extent of the injuries, an investigation into the incident may be required. If, during the course of the investigation, your employer was found to be at fault, your employer may be subject to fines and charges. Regardless of injury, Workers' Compensation is in place to compensate you for such things as missed work, medical expenses, lost wages, and medical bills relating to the incident, as long as you (the employee) were not found to be under the influence of alcohol or illicit drugs at the time of the accident.

Common truck driving accidents

Truck drivers often operate on little to no sleep, especially when traveling long distances. Although most truck drivers make it safely to their destinations, there are cases in which the truck or the driver never does. The issue of truck driver fatigue has been long debated and relatively ignored over the decades, which is cause for concern. Not all 18 wheeler accidents are fatal, but the damage involved, and the delays in traffic are costly for everyone on the roadways.

The continuing discussion of bill HB 377

For most of us, having a baby is a joyous time, a time to welcome a new member into the family. It is a time to celebrate and prepare for the new arrival. However, no amount of planning can ever prepare you for the possibly devastating effects that result from complications during delivery.

Moving loved ones to a nursing home can be a difficult decision

When we think of nursing homes, we may not always think of a bright and cheery environment where our loved ones might want to live, let alone a place where they would receive the same level of care and attention that we would give them at home. However, many nursing homes do just that. They provide safe and caring environments for our loved ones who require additional personal and medical care. This is not just the case for our elderly relatives, such as our moms and dads, but also loved ones who may require extra care due to a permanent disability.
