Broken and defective sidewalks can result in serious injuries

It is natural for tree roots, erosion, drainage issues and other natural elements to result in a breakdown of sidewalks, roads and other concrete walking paths over time. Although it is expected to occur, property owners are responsible for maintaining their property and promoting the safety of anyone who enters the property. Maryland residents who have suffered injuries due to an unkempt walkway may be interested to learn one woman's ordeal in another state following an unfortunate fall. 

Truck driver error may have resulted in Maryland pileup

There is often a stereotype that tractor-trailer drivers are aggressive drivers and act as if they own the road. Unfortunately, the stereotype exists because of too many accidents that occur because of a truck driver error. Recently, multiple Maryland drivers were impacted by a massive pileup that appears to have resulted from a swerving tractor-trailer.

Collisions: Drug use may have resulted in woman's death

Impaired judgment and reaction time is the main reason that driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs is prohibited. Unfortunately, alcohol and other drugs often impair the judgment of drivers who should refrain from getting behind the wheel of a vehicle in the first place. Sadly, tragic collisions occur in Maryland all too often due to the negligence of an impaired driver. One driver's substance use prior to driving may have resulted in a recent woman's death.

Commercial truck accident in Maryland destroys home

As people wake up and begin to process their day, most would attest that they do not anticipate a trip to a hospital. In addition, most people feel safe within their home and cannot imagine the possibility off being a part of a horrific accident while in their home. A recent Maryland commercial truck accident surprised a family and left unsuspecting individuals in their home in need of medical care.      

Exhaustion is a common factor in commercial truck crashes

Most people understand that alcohol and drugs can impact driving. Distraction has also been the focus of much attention in recent years, especially with the rise of texting and driving. One other serious risk factor that too often gets overlooked is driving while exhausted or fatigued, also called drowsy driving.

Woman may have died in drunk driving accident

When a motor vehicle accident occurs, a presumed negligent driver may be most concerned about his or her liability in regard to any other motor vehicles involved and any injuries suffered by its occupants. Some may not understand that negligence on their part can also result in liability for any resulting injuries of the occupants in the vehicle they operated. A recent Maryland fatality may be the result of a drunk driving accident.
