A major insurance company is facing a public outcry over its handling of a claim arising out of the death of one of its policyholders. The case arose out of an auto accident in Baltimore that killed a woman who was insured by the company. The woman's family believed the other driver was at fault. The other driver's liability insurer paid the family $25,000, which represented the limits of its coverage.
Most accidents in Baltimore and beyond are preventable. Sadly, a simple mistake can have devastating consequences. Drivers in Maryland and elsewhere must drive cautiously and remain attentive to prevent accidents. A recent crash near Baltimore shows what can happen when people aren't paying attention to the road.
After a three-week long trial, a Baltimore family was recently awarded $55 million. Jurors involved in the medical malpractice case agreed that the negligent care one mother was given left her son with severe developmental disorders.
Motor vehicle accidents can sometimes lead to injuries serious enough to require medical attention. Baltimore County residents may know of the accident that occurred earlier this month that caused personal injury to four individuals.
Car accidents happen every day, but it isn't very often that you hear of a police officer involved in a motor vehicle accident.
Recently, the city of Baltimore approved a $75,000 personal injury settlement through the Board of Estimates to be paid to a man injured during a court-ordered community service program.
Auto collisions, however tragic, are not always the result of carelessness, distraction or even reckless driving. Rather, car accidents can be cause by any number of factors. For example, a defect in the vehicle or even an unexpected medical emergency can result in an auto collision.
