Summer months means more motorcycles on the roads


Any bike rider will tell you there are fewer thrills more enjoyable than hopping on a motorcycle and hitting the road. There is a distinct intimacy one experiences while on a motorcycle. The wind in your hair, the sun on your skin, the road mere few feet below. There is a reason why motorcycle riding is so popular in the United States, including with many riders from the Rockville, Maryland area.

Rate of elder abuse is higher than previously thought

Elder abuse is a growing and overlooked problem. Many elderly people who need extensive care are not able to speak up for themselves, and those that do speak up about neglect are not always heard or helped. This is part of the reason why the most vulnerable are also the most likely to experience abuse, both by family caregivers and in long-term care institutions, including nursing homes.

The importance of strong representation in the courts


Any time a person leaves their home, they are at risk of a potential accident. No one starts their day thinking they will be in an accident that day, but throughout the United States and throughout the world, tens of thousands of people are injured or killed every day. Often these are due to true accidents, something that could not be avoided. But all too often, an accident is the result of negligence of someone.

How common are scaffolding accidents?


According to statistics from the Occupational Safety and Health Administration, also known as OSHA, approximately 65 percent of construction sites use scaffolding, lifts or ladders at the jobsite. Since a vast majority of these jobsites use scaffolding as a temporary means of elevating workers, it should come as no surprise that scaffolding accidents and injuries related to falls are among the most common at construction sites.

Recognizing the risks of distracted driving


Many people from Rockville, Maryland, the surrounding area and throughout the United States are aware of the potential dangers of distracted driving, but many are not necessarily aware of just how dangerous it can be. In fact, looking at recent statistics should come as a dire warning for everyone out on the roads.

Trucking companies and their dangerous and deadly practices

While truck drivers come from all walks of life, many, particularly in California, are lower-income immigrants who speak minimal English. Yet, they hold significant responsibilities to haul essential goods for high-profile retailers that include Costco, Target and Home Depot.
