Most drivers in Maryland have heard about the risks of distracted driving. Distracted driving continues to be a leading cause of car accidents despite safety campaigns and even laws limiting the use of cellphones behind the wheel. Unfortunately, a new study reports that distracted driving is still a significant safety hazard for teen drivers.
Accidents on sidewalks are more common than one would think. Cracks, holes, gaps and other trip hazards can actually do a lot of harm to unsuspecting pedestrians. Maryland residents who have been hurt while walking on a poorly maintained sidewalk have every right to question who might be liable for any damages sustained due to this dangerous property.
It is common knowledge that driving while impaired can have significant consequences. Drivers who are intoxicated run the risk of hurting themselves and the others with whom they share the road. It is truly unfortunate that many families in Maryland have been negatively affected by car accidents caused by others who choose to get behind the wheel in an inebriated or otherwise intoxicated state.
