Motorist dies in collision with tractor-trailer in Maryland

With an ever-increasing amount of interstate traffic through Maryland, 18-wheelers and other large trucks are everywhere on the state's highways. And with more vehicles come a higher potential for traffic accidents.

Police use DNA to find Maryland hit-and-run crash suspect

Bicyclists who share the road with cars and other vehicles undergo risk every time they pedal out into the street. They are much less protected than motorists and therefore more prone to serious injury in the event of an accident. But that doesn't mean they don't have to right to travel safely. Maryland law says that drivers must treat bicycles like any other vehicle on the road, and leave at least 3 feet of space between a vehicle and a bike. Drivers should also reduce their speed when passing bicycles.

Headphone-wearing pedestrians pose road risk, study says

There's no question that pedestrians are some of the most vulnerable people on the road. Without so much as a helmet to protect them from cars skidding around in bad weather or distracted drivers, they can be injured in a car accident quickly and seriously if they don't see a vehicle approaching. Why wouldn't they? Perhaps because many of them are distracted themselves.

Class-action lawsuit claims special athletic shoes cause injuries

What price would you pay to get in better physical shape without even trying? The cost of a pair of shoes? How about the cost of treatment for injuries you suffered from wearing those shoes?

Truck driver fatigue caused crash that killed Maryland professor

If you drive on a regular basis, you may have experienced it: that overwhelming fatigue that can creep in as the hum of traffic on a busy roadway lulls you. Your head starts feeling heavy and your eyelids begin to droop. You might try to open a window or turn up the stereo to snap yourself out of it, but the fact remains: Drowsy driving can be as dangerous as drunk driving, and leads to countless accidents that injure or kill people. This is especially true for commercial truckers who drive long distances on little sleep.

Most hospital errors go unreported, report says

You might expect that if a surgeon, nurse or other health care worker at a hospital makes an error, it would be reported, both to inform hospital managers and to avoid making the same error twice. But according to a study by the health inspector general of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, hospitals recognize and report only one out of seven errors, accidents and other events that harm hospitalized Medicare patients. Such events often lead to medical malpractice lawsuits, and could lead to more if they aren't caught the first time they happen.

Driver sentenced in fatal crash may now face wrongful-death suits

A 20-year-old Maryland man who fled the scene after a car accident that killed three of his friends has been sentenced to 20 years in prison. With the criminal case complete, the young man could soon find himself the defendant in multiple wrongful death lawsuits, as well as a personal injury lawsuit on behalf of his lone surviving passenger.

Man killed by train sued after his flying body parts injured woman

You might assume that if you're killed in an accident, no one will hold you liable for any damage you or your vehicle might have caused. But a recent court case is blowing that assumption out of the water.
