Man's injury becomes his life's work

A debilitating injury can be difficult for anyone, and if it is caused by a negligent party or even an accident, there may be legal options available that will help pay for medical costs or pain and suffering. A spinal cord injury is particularly serious, so there may be costs accrued due to permanent disability, paralysis and long-term medical care. Despite the seriousness of the injury, there is hope for victims. Readers in Maryland or Virginia might be interested in knowing about a man, 37, who has focused on walking again after an accident in August 2006 left him paralyzed from the neck down. He fractured his spinal cord in two places after a diving accident, and doctors reportedly told him he would never be able to walk again. Through intense physical therapy, he is now able to stand unaided.

Age can play a role in medical malpractice

While other professions require regular health screenings to ensure that those working in the field are still capable of doing so, no such requirement exists for doctors. Today, many doctors choose to continue working past the traditional retirement age of 65. In some cases, this can lead to malpractice and cause harm to patients. Those living in the Washington D.C. area who feel they have been the victim of medical malpractice should understand that they may have the right to seek compensation.

Multiple injuries reported after school bus crash in D.C.

Vehicle accidents are not something that should be taken lightly, particularly when injuries are involved. Those injured in car accidents can be faced with an array of challenges after a crash, including medical expenses, lost wages and other serious damages.

Two dead in Maryland after road rage incident on I-95

On the morning of Nov. 24th, a tragic accident on I-95 ended in two deaths and three injuries. Police are still investigating the incident, but they suspect that road rage may have played a role in causing the accident. The families of those killed in this car accident, as well as those who were injured, may therefore have a right to compensation depending on the results of an inquiry to find out who was responsible for the incident.
