Medical malpractice issues: Falling while in the hospital

One of the last places that you may think you are in any danger of suffering from an injury is in a Maryland hospital. You expect that the doctors, nursing and other staff will diligently work to protect your safety. Sadly, if that was always the case, there would be no need for medical malpractice laws.

Slip-and-fall: Does the property owner owe you a duty?

Under Maryland law, when you go onto someone's property, you may be owed a duty to reasonably protect your safety. For instance, any hazards that could cause a slip\-and\-fall accident that the owner knows about, or should reasonably know about, must be fixed or removed. If you do suffer an injury due to a property owner's negligence or failure to correct dangerous conditions, one of the first questions that may be asked is whether a duty was owed to you.

Officer-involved pedestrian accident leaves teen dead

It does not matter whether Maryland police officers are on duty or off duty. While they are behind the wheel, they must adhere to traffic regulations unless under certain circumstances. They owe the same duty, if not a higher one, to other motorists and pedestrians as anyone else does. Avoiding a motor vehicle or pedestrian accident should remain a priority for every driver, including those in law enforcement.

Details of a motor vehicle accident may elude police

As is the case in other states, the law enforcement agencies here in Maryland have the often-unenviable task of investigating crashes -- some of which involve multiple fatalities. When no one survives to help determine what happened, that task becomes even more of a challenge. This may be the case in a recent single-motor vehicle accident.
