Key facts about teen drivers, distraction and car accidents

As a parent, you know very well how distracted teenagers get. Your own child constantly goes on their smartphone or computer, even in the middle of conversations. It's just part of life. You try to work your way through it at home, but what really worries you is that your teen is going to get a driver's license in a few short years. Is that same sort of distraction going to carry over to the highway?

Woman falls on slippery floor at a Hampton Inn and files lawsuit

"Slippery when wet" signs can be seen in most places of business and other places that may entertain members of the public when a danger may exist. Failure to fix a potential safety hazard, or failure to provide adequate signage, can be considered negligence and result in a civil lawsuit. Maryland residents may be interested in one couple's recent premises liability lawsuit against a well-known hotel chain after falling on a slippery floor.

Distracted driving may have resulted in head-on crash

Five employees of a Maryland gas station experienced a shock on a recent workday. The employees witnessed the unfortunate aftermath of a head-on crash. It is possible that the crash may have occurred as a result of distracted driving.

Hit-and-run car crash results in woman's death

The safety of Maryland roadways depends on responsible driving of all drivers, road conditions and well-maintained roads. When a vehicle is operated in a negligent manner, it can be dangerous for anyone nearby. Sadly, serious injuries and one death resulted after a recent three-vehicle crash. 

Maryland single car crash kills two teenagers

Most Maryland motorists are likely aware that they can be legally liable for any negligent actions that may result in a car accident. Some may not realize that they can also be liable for any injuries and/or death of passengers in their vehicle. Sadly, negligent driving may have been a factor in the recent deaths of two teenagers in a single car crash.

Woman arrested following drunk driving accident

It is not always immediately clear what events may have proceeded an accident or if a driver acted negligently; collecting and examining evidence can take time. Sometimes, one or more drivers will be issued citations or arrested for actions proceeding a crash. In a recent fatal pedestrian accident, it was not immediately clear that the tragedy was the result of a drunk driving accident. The 22-year-old Maryland driver has recently been arrested, following evidence of alcohol and other controlled substances in her vehicle at the time of the crash.

Maryland drug possession laws are very harsh

People who are addicted to drugs will often do whatever they have to do to get their fix. They typically don't worry about having to face criminal charges because of the drugs. When they do get caught having an illegal substance, they will face drug possession charges.
