If you drive or travel in an automobile, odds are you will be involved in at least one car crash in your lifetime. Protect yourself by observing the rules of the road, and also protect yourself against uninsured and underinsured motorists by purchasing the appropriate insurance coverage. Keep in mind that you purchase liability insurance in case you injure or cause property damage to someone else, but you carry uninsured and underinsured motorist insurance coverage to protect yourself. Statistics show that more than 15% of the nation’s driving population is uninsured. If you have been involved in a traffic collision, you may be able to recover damages from the negligent party’s insurance company and/or your own insurance company if the negligent driver was uninsured or underinsured.

Drive To Survive Teaches Teens to Avoid Crashes

Avoid Crashes

According to the Allstate Foundation Chronic Survey, every year between 5,000 and 6,000 teenagers died in car accidents and additional 300,000 are injured annually. In attempt to try to prevent the unnecessary deaths of our young drivers, the Maryland Motor Vehicle Administration (MVA) has approved an advance safety and collision avoidance program that uses real life situations within a controlled environment. The program is called Drive2Survive.

The Drive2Survive program teaches both new and experienced drivers the skills needed to anticipate unexpected emergency situations to minimize collisions and bodily injury in the event of a crash. It is currently the only licensed advanced driving program approved by the MVA.

Drive2Survive is an 8 hour program which consists of 6 hours of driving and 2 hours of classroom instruction. The classroom instructions shows presentation of car crashes and teaches on how to avoid accidents or minimize the damage if a crash is unavoidable.

Since 2004, Toyota has sponsored the program and has donated cars to use for the course. So far, about 800 teenage drivers have taken the course. Drive2Survive are scheduled monthly at RFK Stadium, Maryland State Police headquarters in Pikesville, and Patuxent River Webster air base.

Maryland Dog Bite Lawyer

Dog Bite Law

All across the nation, including Maryland, dog bites are a serious concern. German shepards, rottweilers and pitbulls are not the only breeds that can cause injury to an individual. Many different breeds can become aggressive and attack individuals for no particular reason. These attacks can result in minor or severe injuries, and in some serious attacks, death can be the end result. In Maryland, laws also protect individuals that have been injured but not necessarily bitten, such as being knocked over or jumped on.

Dog Bite Law

Children are the most likely to suffer from a dog bite, with more than 60% of all bite victims being children. They are also more prone to serious injury due to their fragility. Senior citizens are the second most common group of individuals to be bitten, along with meter readers and postal workers. Injuries can result in severe scarring that may never be fixed, even with plastic surgery. Our lawyer can help if you or your loved one was attacked by a dog.

Statistics show that approximately 70% of dog bites occur on the property of the owner. Many owners might argue by saying the victim provoked the canine, but most of the time this isn’t so. Often, the canine was not properly contained or it was not leashed. It is also a fact that a neutered dog is less likely to bite than one that is not neutered, and it is the owner’s responsibility to ensure that their pet’s shots are up to date in order to prevent the spread of disease. When an owner fails to follow proper precautions and is negligent, they may be found liable for the dog bite incident. An attorney at Goldberg, Finnegan & Mester in Maryland can help if you were attacked by canine.
