Alleged medical negligence results in loss of unborn child

Understandably, parents in Maine and across the country want the best care available for their children. Before a child is born, delicate care that is administered to expectant mothers helps to ensure that children are born healthy. However, when pre-natal care is neglected, the lives of both mothers and unborn children can be at risk. Recently, a woman in another state was awarded almost $1.4 million from a lawsuit that was filed after alleged medical negligence resulted in the death of her unborn child.

Motor vehicle accidents typically increase during warmer months

Roadways across the state of Maine are becoming more and more dangerous. Maine is one of the most beautiful states in the country, so thousands of vacationers visit during the summer months to take in the abundant natural beauty. Unfortunately, this means higher than normal traffic volumes and congested roadways. Consequently, motor vehicle accidents also increase this time of year.

Customer safety must be a priority for stores

Store owners and management have to do everything they can to ensure that patrons of an establishment have positive experiences so that they will return. While this means having to make sure that inventory is present and that team members are treating customers in an appropriate manner, the duties go far beyond this.

Alleged medical negligence leads to hepatitis C infection

Patients in Maine have access to some of the best medical care available in the country. Doctors, nurses and other health care professionals must undergo extensive academic and on-the-job training in order to legally care for and treat patients. Not surprisingly, a common trait among these health care professionals is an acute attention to detail, as every procedure must be performed in a thorough and careful manner. However, when details or safety measures are neglected, patients can suffer permanent injuries and even death. Medical negligence is a very real problem across the country.

Drunk driving accident results in injuries and pending charges

Despite increased public awareness, driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol continues to be a very dangerous problem in the state of Maine and across the country. It's no secret that driving while intoxicated is one of the most dangerous things a person can do. Driving takes constant focus and concentration, and alcohol drastically impairs focus and significantly decreases reaction time. Recent statistics say that two out of every three people in the United States will be involved in a drunk driving accident during their lifetime.
