What is the difference between wrongful death and medical malpractice?

There is perhaps nothing more jarring than a loved one being wrongfully injured or killed. In the wake of this difficult time, you may be faced with an overwhelming array of legal options. In some cases, both medical malpractice as well as wrongful death lawsuits can be applicable to your situation. The circumstances of the injury or death unique to each case will determine the course of action. With the help of your personal injury attorney, you can make the decisions that are best for you and your family.

Reversal reflects how judicial standards can evolve

Most people have never taken a polygraph test. We venture to guess that the nearest encounter most people have had with the devices - also known as lie detectors - is what they've seen on television or the movies. In theory, the devices gauge changes in a subject's physiological responses to questions and allow skilled operators to read whether the person is lying or not. The problem is that the machines are not foolproof. Courts sometimes allow polygraph results as evidence, but only if they meet a standard set 70 years ago called the Frye test.

How much protective screening should baseball fans expect?

The recent injury to a young girl at Yankee Stadium has reignited the controversy over how extensive the screening should be that protects fans from being struck by balls traveling at speeds of upwards of 100 miles per hour.

Battles over shared use of Baltimore's streets seem in full fury

If you are a motorist in Baltimore, or anywhere else in Maryland for that matter, you probably have noticed that there are increased numbers of bicycles sharing the streets. This is not by chance. For many years, the city has lagged behind other metropolitan areas in providing the infrastructure for encouraging more bicycling. That has changed in recent years, to a point where this year, Baltimore is recognized as one of 10 U.S. cities leading the way on making improvements.

Three tips to find the right nursing home

A family dinner could turn into a rush to the emergency room when a loved one suffers a stroke. A grandparent may fall ill with heart failure. Parkinson's or dementia may take their toll. Circumstances can change, leaving a family struggling to find the right nursing care facility for their loved ones.

Failure to obey stop sign results in car accident

There are many reasons why a driver might not stop at a stop sign. The driver may be distracted and improperly speaking on a handheld phone or texting, a practice that is against the law in Maryland. A driver might miss a stop sign due to fiddling with the radio or talking to passengers. In many cases, a driver is impaired by drugs or alcohol. Sometimes, a driver is elderly and does not realize that reflexes and attention to detail may be slowing. Whatever the reason, the result is often the same, a car accident that results in serious injuries.

Boating accidents, even small ones, can affect many

Baltimore ferries and water taxis service many in the area, commuting them back and forth on the harbor as well as to and from Cape Clear Island. The water taxis themselves provide a unique and widely used commuter service for those who travel across the harbor for work.

Mold contamination is Hurricane Sandy's latest legacy
