The holiday season is a busy time for most everyone in Maryland. When it involves additional driving, the chances of being involved in motor vehicle accidents increase. It is easier to become distracted when behind the wheel as one's mind is more likely to wander while contemplating the added work and social obligations of the season.
Every year, it seem that there are more and more vehicles on Maryland roadways. As traffic increases so does the likelihood of a serious accident. In addition to car and truck traffic, there are also a significant number of motorcycles on the highways. Motorcycles are smaller and can be harder to see, making it necessary for motorists to always be on the lookout for them in order to prevent motorcycle accidents.
Winter has arrived in Maryland, and so has inclement weather. Snow and ice pose a risk to drivers and pedestrians. Even a walk across a slippery grocery store parking lot can end with a fall on the ice.
Dogs are popularly known as man's best friend. This is often true, but as with other members of the animal kingdom, one dog's personality can be vastly different from another's. There are laws that promote responsible pet ownership, and failure to abide by them can put the dog and the owner at risk in Maryland. One of the biggest risks is that if a dog is not under the control of its owner it may bite or attack someone. Animal bites can be very dangerous and can result in a personal injury suit.
