Summer safety: Road trips with Fido

With summer in full swing, many across Maryland will hop in the car with the whole family to take a road trip for vacation. For pet owners, a family trip could just as easily include a beloved dog or cat, and there are several safety tips to follow to keep the entire family safe on a trip.

What conditions contribute to slip accidents?

Residents all across Maryland lead busy lives, just like you. You have an extensive to-do list and a lot of work to cram into your daily schedule, and that can include traveling to many different stores at all hours of the day. Unfortunately, this can increase your chance of getting into a slip-and-fall accident.

What are some signs of brain trauma?

Maryland residents who get into car accidents are often left dealing with injuries that might not be immediately noticeable. At the law offices of Scott N. Bergman, LLC, we work to help you identify the signs of these injuries, even if they occur days after the initial traumatic event.

What makes a premises liability claim?

Many in Maryland are aware of the idea of slip-and-fall accidents, which can cause injury to the patron of a business and cause them financial harm as a result of medical bills and lost wages during recovery. Premises liability, or the idea that the person in charge of a space is responsible for what happens in that space, can be far-reaching, but all injuries are not the fault of the owner. As Communities Digital News explains, an injury is not automatically the fault of the business where it occurs.

Keeping teens safe on the roads

With the return of summer comes BBQs, concerts and road trips, but for Maryland teens it also means the return of a deadly driving season. According to WTOP, Memorial Day marks the beginning of 100 days where teen drivers are most at risk to have a fatal car crash. More than 5,000 people have died from accidents involving teen drivers in the 100 day period over the past five years.

Consumer views on autonomous car safety

Maryland residents who are concerned about their safety on the road may naturally be watching the evolution of self-driving vehicle technology carefully. Certainly an increase in public safety is a primary motivator for adopting either fully autonomous vehicles or at least the use of vehicle that include some autonomous driving features. But, while companies in a variety of industries seem all but in a race to get these vehicles and features to market, it is interesting to step back and see just what consumers really think about it all.
