Broomes Island, Maryland is a small waterfront community in Calvert County, Maryland, USA, on the Patuxent River. It is located approximately 10 miles south of Prince Frederick, Maryland. Although Broomes Island is a rather small community, it does have its own post office and zip code, 20615. In November 2007, the United States Postal Service considered closing the small post office and re-routing all mail delivery through the larger St. Leonard post office branch; however, after residents contacted U.S. Senator Barbara Mikulski about the proposed closure, the postal service decided against closing the post office. Broomes Island is located near the mouth of St. Leonard Creek, the largest tributary entirely inside Calvert County. It is in the vicinity of Broomes Island that several key naval battles were fought during the War of 1812. During the early and middle parts of the 20th century, Broomes Island was home to a substantial oyster canning industry. However, in more recent years most residents of Broomes Island commute to other places for work. Each May, former Maryland State Senator Bernie Fowler holds a "wade-in" into the Patuxent River at Broomes Island, where he and others will walk into the waters of the Patuxent River until their feet are no longer visible. Fowler does the annual tradition in order to bring awareness to the water clarity levels of the Patuxent River. In recent years, the "wade-in" has become a noteworthy public event, with numerous public officials joining Fowler in the walk, including Maryland Governors Martin O'Malley and Robert Ehrlich and U. S Senator Barbara Mikulski. In 2003, Hurricane Isabel caused moderate damage to numerous structures in Broomes Island.

What is rollover accident litigation?

A rollover is a type of vehicle accident, where a vehicle turns over on its side or roof. Such accidents have a tendency to badly injure the occupants of the vehicle, car, bus or truck involved and those around the vehicle. While many auto accidents occur because of human error, many also can be caused or worsened by defective products or inadequate safety mechanisms. Among these problems are vehicles that are prone to rollovers, especially increasingly popular sport utility vehicles, or SUVs. A number of vehicles have also been found to have roofs that cannot withstand rollover accidents, with drivers and passengers injured and killed. People who are injured in rollover accidents may be compensated for their injury, lost income, and pain and suffering.
