Man injured in police chase crash

An accident can occur at any time, even when a driver is following all of the rules of the road. For one man driving to work early on a Monday morning, a tragic accident resulted in severe injuries that took him to the hospital. The car accident came after a short police chase at high speed on Maryland highways that ended in the death of the driver trying to flee.

Three-year-old killed in tragic accident

Tragedy can occur when the proper safety precautions are ignored. As Maryland families are frequently reminded, it is always important to wear a seatbelt when driving a car, and it is equally important that children in a vehicle are also properly fastened into appropriately sized and fitted seats. Yet accidents do occur, and a wrongful death can result from the belief that children will be fine as long as they are behind a seatbelt.

Trooper injured after crashing into a tree

Many workers have jobs that do not have a single location of employment or require them to travel long distances.

Driver not guilty of manslaughter but may face wrongful death suit

Negligent drivers may face criminal charges and wrongful death suits if they cause an accident that kills another.

However, immediate family members of the decedent may bring a wrongful death suit against the SUV driver for financial injury surrounding the loss of their loved one. The driver was a 28-year-old from North Beach who was driving a 2003 GMC Yukon when he ran the light and hit Byrd's 2003 Volvo station wagon as it made a left turn.

Workers are not only exposed to heavy equipment and dangerous chemicals but workers may also face inattentive drivers on the road.

In Maryland, between 2008 and 2011, 25 people have been killed in work-zone -- the majority of those fatalities were the drivers of vehicles.
