Personal injury claims may follow parking lot collision

For many, spring is the time for home improvement projects. The parking lots of many Maine businesses are crowded with cars, pickup trucks and pedestrians all vying for space. Under those circumstances the chances for an accident resulting in personal injury increase. Recently, two people were hurt when a car backed into them in a Lowe's parking lot. 

Always report a slip-and-fall accident as soon as it happens

Slipping and falling in a public place can be quite an embarrassing experience. People may snicker or stare as you attempt to collect yourself and regain your footing. It's natural to feel an impulse to just move on and proceed with your day, especially if you don't notice any injuries right away. Doing that could prove to be a major mistake that could come back to haunt you in the future.

Slip-and-fall accidents pose serious problems in restaurants

Eating out and working in restaurants are everyday occurrences in the lives of many Americans. Along with visits to these establishments comes a risk of slip\-and\-fall accidents. Whether one works in or visits these restaurants in Maine -- or anywhere else -- it may be beneficial to exercise caution.

NHTSA has concerns over possibly defective products by Goodyear

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration defines its purpose as saving lives, preventing injuries and reducing vehicle-related crashes. As part of that mission, it also investigates reports of potentially defective products that can threaten the well-being of consumers. Maine readers may be interested to learn there are still concerns over the safety of some Goodyear tires.

Trucker sentenced for fatal drunk driving accident in 2016

Recently, a trucker driver was sentenced to 30 years in prison for a fatal crash that killed two Maine residents in 2016. The judge suspended five of those years and then ordered him to serve an additional four years probation. Originally, the prosecutors sought a fifty year sentence in light of the horrifying impact this drunk driving accident had on the victims' families and emergency responders.

Birth defects and your legal rights in Maine

Pregnancy and labor is a challenging time for every new mother and baby. However, when there are additional complications during the pregnancy and birth, these can be nothing short of traumatic. If birth defects are present in your baby, you are probably asking why they happened, and whether anything or anyone was to blame as you were treated by medical professionals in Maine.
