The danger of sharing the road with fatigued port truck drivers

According to the state of Maryland, more than 10 million tons of cargo passed through the Port of Baltimore, a record for the most tonnage through a public terminal in one year. Where there are docked ships that carry freight and cargo, there are semi trucks ready to drop it off or pick it up. 

In which jobs do the most deaths occur?

At our law firm, we help the surviving loved ones of people who have passed away in the course of employment in death and dependent claims under Maryland’s Workers’ Compensation system. At a time of great grief and personal loss, the state Workers’ Compensation law provides for monetary support to help the survivors who had relied on the deceased worker for financial support. 

Maryland to allow some car insurance stacking beginning July 1

A new stacking law in Maryland will benefit some victims of motor vehicle accidents by increasing the amount of money available from insurance proceeds to cover damages like medical bills, lost wages, and pain and suffering caused by at-fault drivers. Specifically, the law will allow the victim to recover up to the full amount of his or her own underinsured motorist coverage — often called UIM — in addition to damages equal to the other driver’s policy limit. 

Federal proposal to toughen semi-truck underride protections

At our law firm, we fight for recovery of damages for the injured victims of dangerous collisions with large commercial trucks across Maryland. We also represent the surviving loved ones of victims who have died in these incidents. 

Workers’ compensation covers many Maryland domestic workers

Many Maryland households hire people to work in their homes like babysitters, nannies, cooks, housekeepers, house cleaners and other household workers. These employers may not know that many domestic workers are covered by state workers’ compensation law — and many domestic workers themselves may not know that they have the right to workers’ compensation benefits for injuries that arise out of and in the course of their employment, regardless of who is at fault for the harm. 

Winter storms challenge everyone driving on Maryland roads

Most Marylanders had never heard the word: bombogenesis, also called explosive cyclogenesis or simply bomb cyclone. At the time of this writing on January 5, the entire East Coast is experiencing the aftereffects of this gigantic, brutal storm over the Atlantic that has wreaked havoc on parts of our state. 

Health risks of sedentary work

In today’s workplaces, virtually all professional, office and administrative workers work on personal computer terminals, laptops or similar technology, usually at a traditional desk. While we think of risky worksites as those involving heavy machinery, work at heights, exposure to chemicals, physical labor or similarly dangerous features, full-time sedentary work has its own inherent health risks.
