Proposed bill would expose dangerous products to public

Most of the time, an idea for a new product is introduced in the hopes of benefiting the lives of consumers while providing a profit for the manufacturers.

Negligence may have played a role in fatal Maine crash

Driving is a skill that one acquires over a lifetime, and it demands close attention at all times in order to avoid causing an accident.

Winter and spring carry the risk of slip-and-fall accidents

People can end up hurt any time of the year, but certain seasons increase the risk of specific accidents and injuries. Slip-and-fall incidents are a perfect example. People can suffer a slip-and-fall any time of day and any time of year.

Meant for safety, speed humps present risk of serious injury

In many residential and business settings where there is the anticipated presence of pedestrians and heavy traffic, there may also be installation of traffic calming devices.

There may be many disabled Maine residents who have had a bad experience with one of these potentially hazardous devices.
