Wrongful birth suit results in $2.9 million award

It would be a mistake to think that the only birth issues for which seeking compensation through the court system might be reasonable are the result of mistakes made during delivery. Maryland-based attorneys with experience in this area of law know that the process of having a baby doesn't fall into just the narrow window of the delivery. It involves the entire 9-month pregnancy.

Hit and run shows danger of freeway work zones

When work gets done on the highways and roads of Montgomery County and the rest of Maryland it's easy for drivers to complain about the disruption they have to endure as a result. Rarely do we consider how dangerous it is for the men and women who are doing the work. They face myriad threats just from the equipment they may be using, but they have to deal with possibly negligent drivers, too.

Annual ski hill fundraiser for blind sends 5 to hospital

Maryland residents are like any others after a long winter. Even though there hasn't been that much snow, certain spring fever traditions don't get set aside easily. One of them might be considered to be the annual Cardboard Box Derby held in the hills of western Maryland.

Triple bus accident in PG County sends 34 students to hospital

Authorities in Prince George's County say the injuries that sent several dozen high school students to the hospital this week are "considered very minor." That may be an accurate assessment right this moment. But the thing about the type of accident these students experienced is that the full extent of their personal injuries may not be fully manifest for days or even weeks.

Plea made to find those responsible for Montgomery Co. fatality

A Montgomery County man's tearful plea for help in finding the drivers of two vehicles that are believed to have been involved in the death of his wife struck a discordant note within the walls of our offices. It brought to mind for us deeply the reality that losing a loved one in an unexpected accident is perhaps the hardest thing anyone can endure.

Make room for emergency vehicles -- it's the law

Emergency service vehicles are required to drive as quickly as possible to their destinations in order to save the lives of those needing assistance. We count on these services to save and preserve our lives when we are in danger. If a fire breaks out in a home or business, every second counts. Emergency service vehicles flash their lights and initiate their warning sirens to alert motorists of their presence. Many intersections are also equipped with flashing warning lights to indicate that an emergency vehicle is in close proximity to their location. It is up to drivers to move out of the way of the emergency vehicle as quickly as possible. When a driver does not follow that rule, it paves the way for tragedy.

Hospitals' referrals to malpractice lawyers sparking debate

Would you accept a cheating spouse's referral of a divorce lawyer? What would you think if the person who caused your injuries in an accident offered you the name of an attorney to consult? In Maryland several medical systems have lists of screened lawyers they feel comfortable referring patients to for possible medical malpractice cases. It's a situation that is sparking debate within the ranks of medical and legal experts.

Harford County marks end of bloody month on highways

The top police official in Maryland's Harford County says this just-ended February was perhaps the worst ever in terms of the number of people killed or injured in motor vehicle accidents. Officials confirm seven people died. The exact number of people who suffered serious personal injury is unclear from the news reports we've read.
