Legal Answers
Q. If a pharmacy filled my prescription by gave me the wrong medicine and it made me sick,
A: I would need to know more facts, but on its face, it appears that the pharmacy committed an error for which you are entitled to receive compensation to the extent that you were harmed by taking the medication that was incorrectly dispensed to you.
Q. Are there limitations to the rights that nursing home residents have? Does it vary based on the individual nursing home?
A: I am not sure what specific rights your question addresses. Generally speaking, a nursing home resident has the right to be provided with nursing care that meets the accepted standard of care for nursing facilities. Whether that standard of care is violated depends on the specific facts of every situation.
Q. Will I be punished or cited for not having insurance after a car accident, even if I wasn't at fault?
A: Having car insurance is a legal requirement in Maryland. Any time you come into contact with police, whether as a result of a car accident or under any other circumstances (e.g., stopped for speeding), you risk being charged with a traffic violation of driving without insurance, which is a misdemeanor in Maryland. Also, the Motor Vehicle Administration may impose a civil fine. The longer you drive without insurance, the higher the amount of the MVA fine. In my 20-plus years of practicing personal injury law, however, I have seen lots of instances when a police officer, who responds to the scene of a car accident, does not charge with a violation a driver who happens to have no insurance. Nevertheless, I strongly recommend that you always have insurance on your vehicle. Not only is it a legal requirement, but it also protects you in case of an automobile accident.
