Chain-reaction car accident claims life of young Maryland woman

A chain-reaction motor vehicle collision tragically claimed the life of a young Maryland woman. The car accident occurred early on a recent Thursday morning when the 21-year-old victim was leaving her place of work. A pickup truck following behind the young woman's car struck her vehicle from behind, forcing her car into a minivan that was stopped as both drivers waited at a traffic signal.

Cost of hospital negligence? A teenage boy's life

Washington, D.C. residents trust in hospital medical staffs to provide knowledgeable care they need to keep them and their families healthy. In another state, that trust was apparently misplaced, and the cost of that hospital negligence was a teenage boy's life. The young man's parents filed a medical malpractice lawsuit, though the case was settled before it went to trial.

Toxic American Airlines uniform a defective product?

Difficult as it may be to imagine, toxic exposure to hazardous chemicals still happens. Much of the exposure to these dangerous substances may occur in the workplace, but most responsible Washington, D.C. employers also follow the regulations set forth to ensure the safety of their workers by instructing them on the safe handling of such materials. Sometimes, though, the issue arises in an unexpected and alarming scenario, like a recent case involving allegations against American Airlines, claiming that the company worker's required uniforms are not merely a defective product but are potentially life-threatening.

Defective children's product accused of horribly injuring toddler

Products available for purchase by members of the Washington, D.C., public are expected to be safe for general use, or at least come with adequate instruction and warnings in cases where improper handling could result in injury. Such dangerous products, of course, should never be made available to children. In another state, though, a product liability lawsuit has been filed in regards to just such a defective children's product.

VA hired surgeon with numerous medical malpractice complaints

When Washington, D.C., residents or their family members undergo surgery, they are literally entrusting their lives to the hands of another. Surgeons are supposed to be specially trained and highly skilled to ensure that patients receive only the best care possible. To this end, one grieving daughter in another state is asking why a surgeon with a number of medical malpractice claims already against him was allowed by a Department of Veterans Affairs hospital to operate on her father, with fatal results.

Legislation hopes to address a specific type of truck accident

Washington, D.C., drivers have become the latest in an ever-growing list of casualties from underride accidents. An underride accident is a specific type of truck accident that occurs when a car slides beneath a tractor-trailer or semi. The accident often results in horrific injuries, such as crushing the driver and any passengers inside the smaller vehicle or even decapitating them.
