What makes older people more likely to fall?

Seniors across Maryland and the rest of the United States are highly susceptible to slip-and-fall accidents and associated injuries, and there are numerous factors that make you, as an older individual, more likely to take a tumble. AgingCare.com reports that falls are the single-largest cause of injury, hospital stays and death among older populations, so it is critical that you learn what risk factors you may have to enhance your chances of avoiding a serious fall.

Part of the falling problem can be tied to environmental hazards, such as loose wiring, loose carpeting, a lack of proper handrails and so on. While these types of hazards pose a threat to you regardless of age, there are additional factors at work among older populations that can make you, as a senior, more likely to be affected by them.

Maryland lawmakers discuss tougher drunk driving laws

Maryland officials are considering tougher penalties for driving under the influence.

A Montgomery County police captain recently testified at a state committee hearing, offering support for a bill that would make certain DUI arrests a felony for repeat offenders. The captain expressed frustration for the number of repeat DUI offenders he sees on the state’s roads and highways. In one instance, a repeat drunk driver hit his cruiser.

A criminal defendant deserves procedural due process

For a defendant facing criminal charges, the Sixth Amendment to the United States Constitution provides the right to a speedy trial. Although there may not be an exact definition of speediness, even the most subjective interpretations would not stand for a ten-year incarceration period without trial. Yet that is the predicament facing one defendant accused of shooting a man in connection with a drug deal.

According to the allegations, the defendant and two of his friends entered an apartment complex with the intention of purchasing marijuana. When they discovered that the dealer wasn’t home, they attempted to rob another tenant whose door was open, and shot that tenant in the process.

Stay Safe When Winter Weather Hits Maryland Roads

The weather in Maryland this time of year can be unpredictable. Because of this it is important to be prepared in case winter weather hits and there is ice and snow on the roads and in your driveway.

Getting Ready to Head Out

When there is snow and ice on the roads in Maryland the first question to ask yourself is whether or not you really need to go, especially if a snow emergency has been declared. If it is possible to just stay home, you should. If you do have to leave, it is important to make sure you are prepared as possible by taking time to make sure your vehicle is properly prepared.
