Victims of medical malpractice in Maryland who seek compensation for medical bills need to be aware of the results of a new study reported in the Archives of Internal Medicine. According to the study, a majority of medical malpractice cases brought against clinicians are either rejected or result in a decision favorable to the health-care provider. Only 55 percent of claims brought even resulted in lawsuits, and of those that went to court, 80 percent were in favor of the clinician.
The Baltimore-Washington Parkway was briefly closed for several hours recently after a driver wreaked havoc in a series of rage-fueled car accidents. The series of auto accidents began when the driver of a Subaru Outback noticed a 25-year-old male driving a Nissan Titan truck erratically and honked his horn.
Motorcyclists take note: traffic fatalities are up in Harford County, Maryland, this year. Because motorcyclists are in particular danger of receiving serious injuries as a result of a crash, it is of increased importance that they take the precautions necessary to prevent a motorcycle accident from occurring.
It is an oft-taught fact of driving that when you hear sirens, you pull over. Since the safety of others demands that police officers and additional emergency first responders hastily respond to a situation, other drivers pull to the side of the road to allow them quick passage. However, negligent drivers may not hear or consciously choose to ignore the sirens, causing serious problems and potentially complicating auto accidents. This unfortunately may have been the case for the Fallston Volunteer Company Fire and Ambulance Company chief recently involved in a four-car accident while responding to a call.
