Businesses: Keep clean sidewalks and parking lots in the winter

Living in Maine has many perks, including the fact that residents get to enjoy four seasons. Many other states do not get the pleasure of a brilliantly colored autumn and a blustery, white winter. Of course, with the enjoyment of the seasons, come the unique hurdles and complications created by changing weather patterns.

Medical negligence ruins thousands of lives every year

In Maine and across the United States, those seeking medical assistance expect to be treated with an acceptable level of care. Patients place their lives in the hands of capable doctors and nurses, but these medical professionals may sometimes deviate from the accepted standard of care. This is considered medical negligence and could cause permanent injury and even the death of the patient.

Premises liability: Alleged slippery floor leads to injuries

The state of Maine is home to a plethora of first-class stores and fine dining establishments. Visitors from all over the world come here to enjoy these wonderful shops and restaurants. Fortunately, all public places across the state must comply with strict safety regulations to ensure the safety of legal visitors. Premises liability laws require property and business owners to eliminate hazards or provide warning of potentially dangerous conditions. Unfortunately, something as minor as a wet floor can cause to severe injuries to customers.

Car accidents: Extractions required after violent crash

Drivers in Maine these days must always remain focused and aware of their surroundings. Car accidents can happen in the blink of an eye. Recently, a destructive crash in Winslow injured four people and showered Route 137 with wreckage and debris, shutting the road down for two hours. The crash occurred during the morning hours at the intersection of South and North Reynolds roads. Those who live near the area say the intersection is prone to accidents and needs some sort of traffic light or signal.

Alleged botched surgery leads to medical malpractice claim

There are always risks involved with any surgery no matter how routine the procedure may be. The smallest errors can cause major complications. Physicians and surgeons in Maine and across the country often work exhausting schedules, sometimes with no breaks. The resulting fatigue can contribute to mistakes. A woman in another state recently filed a medical malpractice lawsuit after she was allegedly injured during a surgical procedure.

Motor vehicle accidents: Driver arrested after leaving crash

Navigating roadways in Maine these days can be a very dangerous task for driver. Statistics say that motor vehicle accidents remain one of the leading causes of death and injury in the state. Accidents are occurring at a higher frequency as more and more people visit and take up residence here. Any accident can be a stressful experience, but the experience can be even more stressful and traumatic when the at-fault driver flees the scene of an accident.
