Man awarded over $18 million in medical malpractice lawsuit

Any error made during a medical procedure, no matter how minute, can have severe consequences for the patient. One mistake or even a missed step on a procedure checklist can potentially cause permanent injury and may even cost the patient his or her life. Medical malpractice is one of the leading causes of death and injury in Maine and across the United States. A man in another state was recently awarded over $18 million dollars in a lawsuit he filed after alleged negligence caused permanent damage.

Reckless driving contributes to more motor vehicle accidents

Driving these days can be a difficult task on crowded and congested roads across Maine. As traffic increases across the state, reckless driving is becoming a very dangerous problem. Some drivers may not be as experienced as others, so it is not uncommon for mistakes to occur. Reckless driving habits are a major cause of motor vehicle accidents. According to recent statistics, reckless driving accounts for over 33 percent of deaths in all accidents. 

Slip-and-fall accidents: Woman allegedly injured in grocery store

As summer arrives in Maine, shops, restaurants and businesses across the state will be bustling with visitors and tourists. In the state of Maine and across the country, it is required by law that all shops and businesses establish a safe, hazard free environment for all individuals lawfully on their premises. Although in the minority, there will always be those property owners who neglect to maintain their properties or eliminate hazards. Potential hazards such as fluids left on the floor can cause slip-and-fall accidents.

Woman awarded $125,000 in premises liability lawsuit

Cities and counties across the state of Maine must comply with strict regulations and safety codes to ensure that citizens and visitors are safe when utilizing public property and infrastructure. These regulations say that publicly used facilities and structures must be free of hazards and adequately maintained on a regular basis. However, maintenance and upkeep can be neglected for a number of reasons such as lack of resources or funding. Also, flawed construction of infrastructure may also play a role in future accidents. Recently in another state, a woman was awarded $125,000 in a premises liability lawsuit.

Dangerous toys: They can cause serious injuries

When you purchase toys for your child, you assume they're safe. You assume that they've gone through standard testing and are made with safe materials, too. That's sadly not always the case, which means many children get hurt every year while playing with toys purchased by their family members and friends.
