Maintenance issues sometimes lead to trucking accidents

All automobiles need to be maintained and frequently inspected to keep them running and ensure that they are safe to operate. This is particularly true for semitrailers and other commercial vehicles. When improperly maintained, trucking accidents can happen. When they do, the victims or -- in the event of fatality -- their surviving family members may be entitled to seek compensation for their losses in a Maryland civil court, as failing to maintain these vehicles is considered a form of negligence. 

Speed is often a contributing factor in fatal car accidents

Speeding -- there are those in Maryland who do it because they do not think speed limits apply to them, others who do it to go with the flow of traffic and those who do not realize they are doing it because they just aren't paying attention. Every day, numerous people are stopped and cited for doing this because of how dangerous it is. Many people may not be aware that speeding is often a contributing factor in fatal car accidents, which is why police work hard to stop those who fail to abide by the posted limits. 

Maryland telecommuters eligible for workers' compensation

Telecommuting is a big thing, and more companies are offering this perk. Quite a few Maryland residents enjoy the privilege of being able to work from home the majority of the time. There has, however, been concern about certain benefits and whether they apply to telecommuters -- such as workers' compensation benefits. If you work from home and suffer an injury when having to leave your residence to go to a job site, can you utilize workers' comp benefits?

Who is usually to blame for motorcycle accidents?

Motorcycle riders are particularly vulnerable on the road. This is because the vehicles can travel at high speeds, but also because there is very little protection for riders in the event of an impact. This is why motor vehicle drivers should exhibit extra care around motorcycles on Maryland's roadways.

Car accidents often cause victims to suffer emotional injuries

Post-traumatic stress disorder is something that is usually talked about in regard to veterans or survivors of abuse. Few people in Maryland and elsewhere may realize that victims of car accidents may also experience PTSD. According to statistic, roughly 9% of accident victims suffer from some level of PTSD. How can one recognize this type of emotional injury?
