Boy dies after emergency room errors

An appeals court recently sided with a jury by upholding a decision that awarded $2.38 million and found a hospital emergency room doctor responsible for medical malpractice. The malpractice happened after the doctor reportedly failed to properly diagnose a serious injury, resulting in a 14-year-old boy's death.

Thanksgiving turkey frying, or playing with fire?

Are turkey fryers dangerous products? Fire safety experts seem to think so. Deep fried turkey tastes so delicious that people risk their homes by cooking it every Thanksgiving. This completely disregards the National Fire Protection Association's (NFPA) adamant counsel against it. The NFPA maintains that many propane-fired turkey fryers are dangerous products, regardless of caution.

Smoking-cessation drug Chantix linked to serious side effects

The smoking-cessation drug Chantix appears to be a dangerous product, with risks that outweigh its benefits, according to Dr. Curt Furberg of Wake Forest Baptist Medical Center. He is the co-author of a new study that shows people taking Chantix are far more likely to attempt suicide and experience serious depression than people using other types of smoking-cessation treatments.

Drowsy drivers are a danger on the road

When drivers are drowsy, their driving skills suffer. They may miss seeing traffic signals, weave between lanes and make other errors in judgment. They may even fall asleep at the wheel with predictably disastrous results. Sleepy drivers are a significant danger on the roads. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration reports that drowsy driving causes 56,000 car accidents every year in the United States, and that the actual number is likely to be considerably higher.

Grain elevator hazards and employer responsibilities

Employers do not only have a moral responsibility for worker safety. They have a legal responsibility as well. This means more than providing individual safety equipment and instruction. It means maintaining facilities and property to minimize workplace injuries.

Lengthy ER delay results in multiple amputations for toddler

Last year, medical malpractice at a hospital emergency room caused a 2-year-old girl to suffer amputations of both of her feet, as well as her left hand and a portion of her right hand. Recently, a jury has awarded her family $10 million to pay for her ongoing care.

Wrong-way collision results in one death, two others injured

It only takes a few seconds for an accident to happen, but the consequences can last a lifetime. In very serious cases, motorists and passengers can lose their lives. In car accident cases, a detailed and thorough investigation is often needed to understand exactly what happened. In a recent fatal crash, Maryland police believe they have a good understanding of what caused the accident-- a driver was apparently driving the wrong way on the highway.

Surprise snowstorm causes many car accidents across Maryland

The recent early blizzard to hit the east coast should remind all drivers that it is never too early to think about winter driving safety. Drivers unprepared for winter conditions could easily find themselves in car accidents. At the least, it means slowing down.
