Workers' compensation: Carpal tunnel syndrome in tech industry

When workplace injuries are mentioned, many people think of construction workers falling off scaffolds, industrial workers suffering electric shocks or warehouse workers involved in forklift accidents. Office workers and employees in the technology industry are not typically included in discussions about occupational hazards. However, the Maryland workers' compensation program reports many claims filed by computer operators for repetitive stress injuries such as carpal tunnel syndrome.

Shopping center accused of negligence in slip-and-fall accident

Every year, hundreds of thousands of individuals across the country are hospitalized from injuries they suffer after slipping and falling. Often, these slip\-and\-fall accidents result in broken bones or other lasting injuries that require ongoing treatment or cause long-term pain and suffering. When Maryland property owners fail to keep their premises safe from hazards that result in grievous physical damages to unsuspecting members of the public, the business owners are not the ones who suffer; rather, it is the injured patrons who endure pain and often face costly medical expenses for treatment.

Motor vehicle accident results in numerous injuries

Maryland's roadways see more than their fair share of crashes. Whether a motor vehicle accident involves just one vehicle or several, the injuries can be catastrophic. While the injured recover at home or in hospitals, investigators work to determine fault and the factors that led to the crash.

Did attorney commit legal malpractice in personal injury claim?

When hiring an attorney for a personal injury claim, a Maryland resident trusts that the one chosen will diligently pursue a recovery from any and all potential defendants who may bear some responsibility for the injuries suffered. Failing to do so could close off a potential source of restitution that could help with the financial losses sustained. An individual in a neighboring state says that is exactly what happened, and he now alleges legal malpractice kept him from receiving approximately $1.8 million.

Numerous pedestrian accidents happen around college campuses

Retail, rental and restaurant establishments designed to serve the students who attend them often occupy the real estate surrounding many of Maryland's college and university campuses. Students who frequent the businesses and live near the campuses may walk quite a bit. This means they are also vulnerable to being injured or even killed in pedestrian accidents.
