People who don't adjust driving habits for weather cause crashes

Driving is one of the most dangerous activities that most adults engage in on a daily basis. Every time you get behind the wheel, you incur the potential risk of a collision. Some of your driving habits may actually increase the risk of a crash or collision when you are on the road.

Car accidents: Winter weather may have contributed to fatal crash

As winter approaches, drivers need to be extra cautious behind the wheel. This time of year, winter weather can quickly cause roadways across the state of Maine to become treacherous. Slick and icy roadways contribute to thousands of car accidents each year. The majority of these accidents are minor, but some can be very serious.

Medical malpractice: A wrong or untimely diagnosis can be deadly

Professional medical treatment is a process that thousands of Maine patients experience on a daily basis. Arguably the most important and crucial part of this process is a correct and timely diagnosis. In order to provide the appropriate and correct treatment, the patient must first be correctly diagnosed. Any delay or discrepancy in these initial stages can snowball into big problems for the patient down the road. Medical malpractice like this can prevent the patient from making a full recovery.

Slip-and-fall accidents happen more than most people realize

The vast majority of Maine residents visit a store or restaurant at some point every day. Although most public establishments across the state are safe and welcome visitors, it's always a good idea to be on the lookout for potential hazards. Cleaning supplies or tools left lying on the ground from routine maintenance are examples of things that can cause slip-and-fall accidents. If a customer or visitor is injured as a result of hazardous conditions in a store or restaurant, the business owner(s) could possibly be held accountable financially.

In Maine, higher populations mean more motor vehicle accidents

Accidents are happening more and more on roadways in the state of Maine. A number of factors are contributing to the rise in motor vehicle accidents, but a main reason seems to be higher traffic volumes. There are more vehicles on the road than ever before as populations increase across the state. Unfortunately, not all drivers exercise caution behind the wheel. A recent multiple-vehicle crash in Norridgewock resulted in injuries.
