There is nothing worse for Maryland residents than losing a loved one. As discussed previously in this blog, when an unexpected incident claims the life of a loved one, surviving family members may have a cause of action they can bring against the person responsible for the incident. If successful, family members can obtain damages in the lawsuit, based, among other things, on the financial impact of losing their loved one.
There are several safety concerns for Baltimore residents driving on area roads. Bad weather and other unsafe road conditions can present travel problems, particularly when traffic becomes worse. However, perhaps the greatest risks come from other drivers, who can cause serious injuries through their improper driving even when road conditions are good.

While there is never a good time to lose a loved one, a death in the family during the holiday season can be particularly heartbreaking. This is especially true when the death comes unexpectedly, such as through a car accident or after another traumatic incident. When the death occurs as a result of someone else's negligence, the surviving family members may have a cause of action for wrongful death against the responsible party.
Every Baltimore resident has certain prejudiced and biased views, whether he or she realizes it or not. While many think of negative prejudicial views, such as those concerning race and sex, there are other prejudicial or biased views that others may hold without first knowing all of the facts behind a situation.
