Three workers burned due to hazardous job condition

When workers are hired to perform dangerous jobs, they trust that their employer will provide them with all appropriate safety training and measures. For instance, workers who deal with hazardous chemicals should be trained to recognize any hazards, learn how to minimize the dangers, and wear safety gear to protect their bodies from poisonous substances. When an employer ignores risks and sends employees into dangerous situations, laborers may become victims of a work-related injury

Maryland volunteer firefighter killed on the job

Firefighters have one of the most dangerous jobs imaginable. While comprehensive training and protective gear can be helpful to reduce the threat of injury, there is no guaranty of safety when firefighters are racing into burning buildings hoping to rescue victims. The risk of smoke inhalation, heat exhaustion, or being trapped or hit by burning debris on the job is substantial. Amazingly, some firefighters do not even get paid for the dangerous work, instead they volunteer their time for the good of the community.

Head-on collisions are a growing problem in Maryland

Head-on crashes involving a motorist driving the wrong way on a highway is an ever growing problem in Maryland. In fact, the National Transportation Safety Board recently undertook a study to learn more about the statistics surrounding these often deadly accidents. It found that in the last few years, close to 12 people in Maryland have been the victim of a car accident involving a head-on collision, and 360 have perished this way across the United States. Wrong way crashes occur most commonly on Friday and Saturday nights, and one in five accidents are fatal.  Not surprisingly, 60% of the drivers who cause this type of accident are drunk.

Fall into hole in sidewalk results in $160,000 payment

Most people look straight ahead or at the surrounding scenery during a walk on paved sidewalks. They do not watch their feet because sidewalks are expected to be mostly smooth and uniform, or at least unchanged from day to day. Accordingly, when a construction crew digs up a sidewalk and fails to alert the general public, unsuspecting pedestrians can be the victim of a slip-and-fall accident resulting in painful injuries.

Baltimore car accident causes injuries, deaths

It happens all the time. A group of friends goes out for a night of fun on the town. At the end of the festivities, one member of the group assures the rest that he or she is no longer drunk and volunteers to pilot the car. When fatal car accidents result, authorities often determine that the driver was actually under the influence.
