Women more vulnerable to personal injury and death in car crashes

Research into auto accidents is important as it serves as a guideline for how automakers, legislators and law enforcement can make the roads safer. In many cases, there are some unusual findings as part of these research studies. To come to a full understanding on how to address these issues, it is critical to assess them in the proper context. Regardless of the accident, its circumstances and how various factors played a role in the personal injury and death of those involved, it is wise for people who were impacted to have legal advice from a qualified legal professional.

Study shows misdiagnosis a common reason for personal injury

Suffering from an illness, condition or injury in Maryland will understandably warrant a trip to the doctor or hospital to see what the problem is and how to go about treating it. Trusting medical professionals is ingrained in people from the time they are young. There is an expectation that those who are trained medical experts will know how to make an accurate diagnosis and give proper treatment. Unfortunately, medical errors are still a concern. They can cause a worsened condition, illness and death.

AAA employee might need workers' compensation after crash

There are many dangerous jobs in Maryland and workers can suffer severe injuries when doing them. With the medical expenses, lost wages and other problems that accompany a work injury, it is important to understand how to get the maximum in workers' compensation benefits. While any job can lead to injury, there are some like construction, law enforcement, emergency responders and tow truck drivers who are at significant risk. After an accident, it is essential to have legal help to apply for and get workers' compensation.

Study ranks local drivers worst, highlights personal injury risk

Personal injury from auto accidents is a constant danger in Maryland. Studies attempt to determine the causes of these crashes and formulate solutions to keep people safer when they are on the road. Part of this research is to specify which locations have the highest risk. This is a key factor that drivers should consider when on the road and if they have been in a crash with injuries and fatalities. It can be important when pursuing compensation in a legal filing.

Leading causes of truck accidents

Driving a truck requires an increased level of care due to how dangerous accidents can be. The size and weight of these vehicles alone have the potential to do significant damage in a crash. There is also the element of what the truck is carrying that could potentially cause even more harm. As a result, there is a requirement of attending training and receiving a special driving license to operate a truck.

Driving after smoking marijuana can cause personal injury

Driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs in Maryland is known to be a dangerous act that can cause an accident with personal injury and death. Still, people tend to categorize what it means to be "driving under the influence" and will downplay the danger of driving after smoking marijuana. A recent survey from AAA says that many people across the nation do not see driving after having used marijuana to be a major risk. When there is an accident and it is believed that a driver has been smoking marijuana, this can be a key part of a legal filing to be compensated.
