New Fatigue Warning Systems Offer Promise in Reducing Auto Accidents Involving Tired Drivers

January 31, 2011

We have previously written on this blog about the serious risk of auto accidents caused by driver fatigue and tiredness. This is a significant problem, which is estimated to play a role in approximately 16% of all fatal car accidents. Most accident safety experts believe these numbers vastly understate the problem because it is often difficult to determine if driver fatigue or sleepiness contributed to a fatal car accident. Fatigue and sleepiness adversely impact a number of critical driving skills including reaction time, reflexes, judgement and decision making.

Smart Phones Creating Not So Smart Pedestrian Behavior in Georgia

January 31, 2011

Smart phones are becoming so multi-dimensional that many drivers and pedestrians are taking dangerous risks by focusing on their cell phone instead of hazards on streets, highways, intersections and sidewalks. The issue of texting while driving has become so serious that many states including Georgia have passed laws banning the practice.

Georgia Drunk Driving (DUI) Auto Accidents

January 29, 2011

Georgia drunk driving (DUI) auto accidents are widespread and take an enormous and completely avoidable human and financial toll on Georgia residents. Drivers under the influence of alcohol account for almost 12,000 motor vehicle fatalities per year nationally, which amounts to 32% of all auto accident fatalities. The numbers in Georgia are comparable with almost 490 DUI auto accident fatalities annually amounting to 29% of the total number of Georgia auto accident fatalities. Another 248,000 Americans are injured each year in DUI related auto accidents, which means a person is hurt in a drunk driving accident every two minutes and killed every 45 minutes.

New Department of Transportation Rule to Reduce Vehicle Ejections in Rollover Accidents

January 27, 2011

Rollover accidents have consistently been amongst the most deadly of all motor vehicle accidents. The U.S. Department of Transportation (DOT) has recently taken positive steps to reduce the high accident fatality rate associated with rollover accidents by enacting new standards, making electronic stabilization control mandatory and increasing roof crush standards in SUVs. Electronic stabilization control helps drivers maintain control of the vehicle during emergency evasive maneuvers, reducing the number of SUV rollover accidents.

Elderly Women Who Hit and Killed a Child Pedestrian Sentenced to Jail

January 27, 2011

Edith M. Anderson, an 83 year-old Cobb County woman, was sentenced to 3 years in jail following her guilty plea to vehicular homicide in the 2009 December death of 5 year-old Karla Campos.

Clayton County Georgia Teen Trying to Catch School Bus Hit in Pedestrian Accident

January 26, 2011

A fourteen year-old Clayton County boy was struck by a motor vehicle this past Wednesday morning as he rushed into the street in an effort to catch his school bus before it pulled away. According to police reports, the boy darted into traffic, and the driver had no opportunity to stop or swerve to avoid the pedestrian accident. Fortunately, the teen's injuries appeared to be only cuts and bruises, but he was rushed to Atlanta Medical Center for a closer medical evaluation.

Pedestrian Accidents: States Considering Laws to Combat Distracted Walking & Jogging

January 26, 2011

Many states, including Georgia, have enacted laws aimed at making our roads safer by reducing the number of distracted drivers on the road. The problem of drivers distracted by mobile phones, iPods and other handheld electronic gadgets causing serious auto accidents has resulted in various laws prohibiting texting and talking on a cell phone while driving, or limiting such conversations to hands-free use of a cell phone. Georgia has distracted driver laws that prohibit texting while driving and all cell phone use by drivers who are under 18 or driving a bus. Now two states, New York and Arkansas, have targeted pedestrians that are distracted as they walk or jog.

Do Motorcycle Helmets Lead to More Motorcycle Accidents?

January 26, 2011

Many states have enacted mandatory helmet laws in an attempt to reduce motorcycle accident fatality rates. Few people dispute that a rider wearing a helmet is more likely to avoid serious head and facial injuries or fatalities. Studies have shown that helmets increase the survival rate in motorcycle accidents by 29 percent. A rider is approximately 27 times more likely to die in a crash than someone riding in an automobile, and a rider not wearing a helmet is 40% more likely to suffer a fatal head injury.

Trucking Industry Backing Legislation to Conceal On-Board Recorder Data

January 25, 2011

Tractor-trailer accidents are typically the most deadly types of collisions often resulting in devastating and life-altering injuries or wrongful death. Ironically, these horrible motor vehicle accidents are among the most difficult accident cases to litigate. One of the most challenging aspects of a Georgia trucking accident case is preserving critical evidence, such as that of truck driver fatigue and other types of driver error. While trucking industry regulations require that a logbook be maintained so that there is a record of a tractor-trailer driver's hours of service, these records are routinely altered or falsified.

My Georgia Auto Accident Injuries Claim: What About Property Damage to My Car?

January 24, 2011

If you are involved in a serious Georgia auto accident, your first priority and concern must be your physical well-being and recovery from your injuries. Eventually, if everything goes well, you will return to your pre-accident routine and will need your car. It is not uncommon to wind up with a disabled or damaged car or to suffer a total loss of your car after an accident. Montlick and Associates, Attorneys at Law, like most car accident firms, focus on car accidents that result in injuries, but we also know that getting your car repaired correctly and the diminished value of your vehicle are important to you as well.

$124.5 Million Jury Verdict in 15 Passenger Van Accident Lawsuit Serves as Primer on Key Issues

January 23, 2011

A jury in Texas awarded seven passengers who were injured or killed in a 15 passenger van rollover accident $124.5 million dollars. 15 passenger vans are notorious for being prone to rollover because they have a high center of gravity. Government statistics indicate that over 1,500 people have been killed in 15 passenger van accidents since 1990, with approximately twenty-five percent of those accidents being rollover accidents.

Driver Distracted by Loud Music Hit by Freight Train

January 22, 2011

The number of Atlanta residents who suffer catastrophic injuries and wrongful death at the hands of distracted drivers is growing at an exponential rate. In a strange Associated Press report, a Montana man was hit by a freight train because he was playing music so loud in his car that he apparently did not hear the train approaching or notice the railroad signal.

$208.8 Million Verdict for Second Hand Exposure to Asbestos in Laundry

January 21, 2011

Many people are aware of the serious danger posed by occupational exposure to asbestos, which is effectively the exclusive cause of mesothelioma cancer. Mesothelioma cancer is caused by exposure to asbestos fibers or dust and primarily strikes persons who worked with asbestos products in an occupational setting. It is a type of lung cancer that takes many years to develop and produce symptoms. What many people do not realize is that asbestos exposure can create a risk of second hand exposure to asbestos for those who have never worked around asbestos.

Texting More Dangerous Car Accident Risk Than Drunk Driving in Georgia

January 20, 2011

The popularity of cell phone and iPod texting has created an epidemic of drivers who text while driving despite laws in many states, including Georgia, prohibiting the practice. Many traffic safety experts contend that texting while driving has become a greater factor in serious auto accidents than drunk driving. What many drivers do not realize is that there is actual scientific research that supports this position.

FCC Announces Plan to Add Texting to 911 Services: Is This Really a Good Idea?

January 21, 2011

The FCC recently announced its decision to add text messaging to its 911 emergency lineup. In some respects, this is a logical and predictable response to the massive growth of mobile phones and the popularity of text messaging. The addition of texting services to the 911 emergency system was almost inevitable given that the FCC reports that approximately seventy percent of all 911 calls originate from mobile phones.

Data Shows Strict Enforcement of Seat Belt Laws Save Lives In Georgia

January 20, 2011

Many Georgia drivers have experienced the panic that accompanies the sight of flashing lights in one's rearview mirror and the realization that one has forgotten to buckle up. While the thought of receiving a traffic citation for failing to wear a seat belt may be upsetting, there is a fair amount of data that suggests that strict enforcement of seat belt laws reduces the number of fatalities and serious injuries suffered in auto accidents.

Icy Atlanta Sidewalks and Intersections Increases Risk of Pedestrian Accidents

January 19, 2011

Pedestrian accidents are frequently very serious because the human body was not meant to endure impact with a 3,000 pound or more mass of metal moving at a high velocity. When snow and ice covers the streets, sidewalks, intersections and crosswalks, the risk of being involved in a pedestrian accident increases exponentially. While many residents in Atlanta and throughout Georgia heeded public safety warnings to stay indoors during the recent storm events and to avoid driving, work pressures, dwindling supplies and mounting cabin fever has forced some Atlanta and Georgia residents onto icy roads and sidewalks often with bad results.

Atlanta Amtrak Train with 180 Passengers Collides with Car on Tracks

January 19, 2011

An Atlanta Amtrak train carrying 180 passengers collided with an unoccupied car that was parked on the railroad tracks in Lowell, S.C. on Sunday. Fortunately, no one was injured, and the train's crew kept the train upright and brought it to a complete stop. Collisions between Amtrak and commuter trains and motor vehicles frequently result in massive carnage especially when the collision leads to a derailment of the train.

Atlanta Car Accident on an Icy Road: Who Is Responsible?

January 18, 2011

Atlanta was virtually shutdown by the harsh winter storm that made for dangerous roads and lots of serious traffic accidents. While Atlanta road maintenance crews worked hard to clear the roadways, the continued freezing temperatures meant icy roads would persist. The Georgia Department of Transportation urged drivers to stay off the roadways, especially heavy tractor-trailers that can be particularly dangerous because of their size and weight.

Icy Roads in Georgia Cause Serious Auto Accident Resulting in Passenger Fatality

January 18, 2011

The icy roads and record setting winter weather in Atlanta continues to mean unsafe roads and serious car accidents. Sadly, Courtney Ferguson, 30, of Acworth was killed in a car crash in which she was a passenger in a vehicle that slid on an icy Marietta road. Icy roads and other adverse road conditions put all occupants of a car, pickup truck or SUV at risk, but passengers have little choice but to put their safety in the hands of the driver of a motor vehicle. Generally, passengers are less likely to be seriously injured in a car accident because a passenger in the back seat of a vehicle is typically less vulnerable.

Fatality on Icy Pavement Provides Warning That Slip and Fall Accidents Can Cause Serious Injury in Georgia

January 18, 2011

We have all had the experience of tripping on uneven ground or slipping on icy pavement. Typically, we get back up with a sheepish, embarrassed expression knowing that the only real injury was to our pride. A fatal slip and fall by Conyer Baldwin, 82, of Marietta on ice outside his home late Wednesday night serves as a warning that slip and fall accidents can be much more than a minor inconvenience or blow to one's ego.

Georgia Auto Accidents: Dealing with Erroneous Crash Report

January 17, 2011

Improper Lane Changes A Common Cause of Serious Georgia Car Accidents

January 17, 2011

Drivers who make unsafe lane changes often cause serious Georgia accidents, including sideswipe car accidents where a car makes contact with a vehicle in an adjacent lane. Improper lane change accidents typically create a presumption that the driver making the lane change is the at-fault driver. Georgia law imposes a legal duty on drivers to ensure that it is safe to change lanes before doing so.

Georgia Delivery Truck Accidents Can Cause Catastrophic Injuries

January 16, 2011

Delivery trucks provide valuable services to consumers but can also pose serious auto accident risks to pedestrians, bicyclists and other drivers.

Does Receiving a Traffic Citation Mean I Cannot Recover for My Georgia Auto Accident?

January 14, 2011

Many Georgia drivers find themselves in a quandry when they are involved in a motor vehicle collision and suffer serious injuries, only to receive a traffic citation from the police officer at the scene. If you or someone you love is involved in a serious motor vehicle accident involving a car, pickup truck, tractor-trailer, SUV or pedestrian resulting in serious injuries or even death, a traffic citation is not necessarily a bar to recovering damages for injuries.

Pain pumps help to manage pain by releasing controlled amounts of local anesthetics to the surgical site through a catheter. Due to manufacturing defects, some of these pumps release too much medication.

Painkiller Darvocet Withdrawn Pursuant to FDA Request

January 13, 2011

The manufacturer of the prescription painkiller Darvon and Darvocet, and its generic equivalent propoxyphene, announced that it would no longer be marketing the pill after the FDA requested the withdrawal and urged doctors to stop prescribing the drug immediately. The FDA's action is based on the results of a new study that links the drug's active ingredient to serious and sometimes fatal heart rhythm abnormalities that may result in sudden deaths.

Storm Continues to Cause Accidents: DOT Urges Drivers to Stay Off Roads

January 13, 2011

As Monday's winter storm continued to dump snow on Atlanta streets and highways, the number of snow related auto accidents continued to grow. By midnight on Monday the Atlanta police department had already reported 368 accidents/road hazard calls. The roads have become so unsafe and the number of car accidents so high that police have indicated they are not even responding to car accidents that do not involve physical injuries.

Speeding Is Never Worth the Risk Driver Killed in Marietta Speeding Accident

January 12, 2011

Atlanta drivers frequently exceed the posted speed limit because they are impatient or late for appointments, but speed kills. An Acworth man was killed early Thursday in a single-vehicle crash on I-75 in Marietta in which police believe speed was a factor. The driver's Jeep Grand Cherokee left the roadway and struck a tree causing the driver to be ejected from the vehicle when it rolled over. Although the fatal rollover accident is still being investigated, the police indicated that they believe speed was a factor in the fatal single car accident.

Clayton County Georgia Officer Seriously Injured in Crash Confirms Construction Zone Dangers

January 12, 2011

A Clayton County police officer was seriously injured while working on a construction zone detail late Thursday when his patrol car was rear-ended by a large truck.

This tragic accident again demonstrates that construction zones remain one of the most dangerous parts on the roadway for motorists and construction workers.

Fatal Sandy Springs Georgia Accident Result of Dangerous Roadway

January 12, 2011

A dangerous stretch of Johnson Ferry Road in Sandy Springs was the scene of two separate fatal auto accidents in under a week less than a hundred feet apart. The fatal car accidents occurred on a 1.4 mile construction zone between Abernathy and Riverside Roads where the roadway is being widened. The stretch of roadway has a reputation of being dark and unlit at night, and as drivers approach a sudden and sharp curve, the roadway dips to a steep grade. The construction barriers and obstacles only make the roadway more confusing and treacherous. The steep grade combined with the sharp, sudden turn makes the stretch of roadway particularly dangerous.

Tips to Help Avoid Auto Accidents When Navigating Icy Georgia Roads

January 11, 2011

The streets and highways of the greater Atlanta metro area became dangerous Sunday as snow continued to fall. As predicted, the snow turned to freezing rain and ice and continue to make Atlanta roads unsafe for drivers. As ice and snow makes the roadways slippery, an increase in the number of Atlanta area car crashes is inevitable. While the safest option when the roads are covered in snow and ice is to avoid driving, this is an option that is not available for many.

New Car Safety Features Can Prevent Fatal Auto Accidents in Georgia

January 11, 2011

There are over six million car accidents annually that result in over 40,000 car accident related fatalities and another two million people suffering permanent injuries. A new report from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety indicates that 66 new car models including 40 cars and 25 SUVs earned the organization's highest vehicle safety rating.

Disabled in Work-Related Accident in Georgia: What Now?

January 10, 2011

Each year many employees suffer serious injuries on the job that result in the employee needing medical treatment, rehabilitative therapy, and compensation for their lost wages and permanent disability. Under Georgia Workers' Compensation Law, employees must report the accident to their employer, and are sent by the employer to an approved physician on the employer’s panel. Since the employer determines which doctors are included on the panel, the physician has a potential conflict of interest between the interests of the employee, and interests of the employer who made the referral to the physician. As a result, an employee who is unaware of his or her legal rights may receive much less in the way of medical care and disability benefits, and ultimately a settlement, than someone who consults an attorney. Sometimes, there is even a denial of the claim, resulting in the unfortunate situation where the employee gets no compensation whatsoever.

Product Liability for Defective Motorcycles in Georgia: Who Is Legally Responsible?

January 10, 2011

While motorcycles are a fun, exciting and fuel-efficient mode of transportation, they are also inherently more dangerous than a car, truck or SUV. Even if a motorcyclist rides perfectly, the rider is extremely vulnerable to careless driving by other motorists. Motorcycles provide a very small margin for error, less stability and reaction time, and virtually no protection in the event of a collision.

The Other Driver's Insurance Offered Quick Settlement for My Injuries: What's The Catch?

January 09, 2011

Many people seriously injured in car crashes are surprised when an adjuster for the other driver's insurance company calls almost immediately and offers to send a check including damages to cover injuries suffered in the auto accident. Anyone finding oneself in this situation should consider the adage, "If it seems too good to be true . . . it probably is!" Thousands upon thousands of car accident victims each year make the mistake of accepting and cashing a quick settlement check from an at-fault driver's insurance company only to realize later that there is 'fine print'.

Georgia Car Accidents: The Devastating Impact of Spinal Cord Injuries

January 08, 2011

Every year 2.9 million people in the U.S. are injured in serious car accidents. One of the most devastating injuries that a person can experience in a serious car crash is a spinal cord injury, which often results in paralysis and permanent disability. While many people assume that spinal cord injuries are fairly rare, nothing could be further from the truth. Over 259,000 people in the U.S. currently are afflicted with some form of spinal cord injury with 12,000 more suffering spinal cord injuries every year.

Distracted Driving Continues to Claim Lives in Georgia

January 08, 2011

Few people would use a dangerous weapon like an explosive device or firearm while distracted and not paying attention. Yet, many motorists think nothing of multi-tasking while operating a motor vehicle, which claims more lives than any other dangerous instrumentality. Distracted driving claims the lives of over 6,000 people per year and plays a role in approximately 21% of police reported auto accidents nationally.

Dangers Posed by Hazardous Chemicals Spilled in Tractor-Trailer Accidents Throughout Georgia

January 07, 2011

Collisions involving tractor-trailers are among the most deadly of all motor vehicle accidents. The size and weight of a big-rig often results in complete demolition of a passenger vehicle. When a Georgia car crash involves a commercial truck, the risk of catastrophic injuries including head and neck injuries, spinal cord injuries, broken bones and fractures, paralysis, coma and even wrongful death are extremely high. The risks only increase when a tractor-trailer is transporting a hazardous or toxic substance.

What Is a Personal Injury Case?

January 07, 2011

Even if we are very cautious in our daily activities, there is an inherent risk that we may be injured by the careless or intentional conduct of another. When this occurs, the legal system allows the injury victim to seek compensation for his or her injuries. The injury victim must establish that the careless or intentional conduct of another was the cause of one's injuries and that someone suffered damages in the form of physical or mental harm and/or property damage.

U.S. Does Not Compare Favorably to Other Countries at Preventing Auto Accidents

January 06, 2011

Recent studies indicate that the steps the U.S. has taken to reduce the number of car accidents and reduce serious auto accident related fatalities and deaths is a mixed bag. While stronger drunk driving laws and more aggressive enforcement along with graduated licenses for teen drivers has reduced accident rates, the U.S. still lags behind other countries when it comes to making its roadways safer.

The Myth That Bigger Vehicles Mean Safer Vehicles, By Georgia Car Accident Attorneys Montick & Associates

January 05, 2011

Vehicle safety has become an increasing priority to new car buyers as car industry standards have advanced and facilitated the development of new safety equipment. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) and other agencies have continued to pass rules and regulations mandating that the auto industry improve vehicles to decrease accident rates and reduce serious injuries and wrongful deaths. As drivers have increasingly focused on safety, the myth has developed that larger vehicles, such as SUVs and 15 passenger vans, are safer because their mass, size and weight protects occupants from serious injury during car crashes.

Hit-And-Run Accident Blamed on New Car Smell

January 05, 2011

Many Georgia car accident victims suffer serious injuries including head and neck injuries, traumatic brain injuries, paralysis, loss of limbs, severe disfigurement, and permanent disability at the hands of distracted drivers, reckless drivers or drivers otherwise engaged in negligent and unsafe driving practices. Pursuing just compensation for injuries suffered in a serious car accident almost always involves complex legal and factual issues, the challenge increases significantly when a hit-and-run driver causes a Georgia auto accident.

Celebratory Gunshot Injuries: Wrong Way to Ring in New Year

January 04, 2011

For most people, the New Year holiday is a time filled with happiness, celebration and new beginnings. Tragically, the combination of alcohol, adrenaline and poor judgment can turn this joyous holiday into one of grief and pain. Every year, people become gunshot victims when they are struck by stray bullets fired into the air by someone trying to ring in the New Year with a poor display of judgment. Many of these who cause gunshot injuries by firing their gun into the air to celebrate New Year's Eve believe that no one really gets hurt from such irresponsible conduct. In reality, celebratory gunshot injuries not only results in injuries but tends to result in the most serious types of gunshot injuries.

Falling Debris from Tractor-Trailer Causes Car Crash on GA 400 Northbound

January 04, 2011

A tractor-trailer caused a car crash on Georgia 400 when debris fell from a commercial truck driving northbound on GA 400. According to police, debris from the tractor-trailer covered the highway damaging cars and causing a car crash after debris went through the windshield of a car and struck the occupant in the face and head. The woman injured by debris falling from the tractor-trailer load was hospitalized for her injuries but is expected to completely recover.

Defensive Driving on New Year's Eve: Protection from Auto Accidents Caused by Drunk Drivers in Georgia

January 04, 2011

Despite monumental strides in the campaign to reduce the number of car accidents caused by drunk drivers, drivers impaired by alcohol continue to cause the death of almost 14,000 Americans per year. Alcohol related car crashes account for approximately 37% of all motor vehicle fatalities. The risk of a drunk driving auto accident is never greater than on New Year's Eve when the number of DUI arrests and alcohol related car accidents spike dramatically.

Hall County Georgia Motorcyclist Killed in Head-on Collision with Pickup Truck

January 04, 2011

A man was killed on Friday when he was involved in a head-on collision with a pickup truck in south Hall County. According to preliminary reports, the motorcycle rider was hit and killed by the driver of a pickup when the driver attempted to make a left turn. Although complete details on the fatal Georgia motorcycle accident are still unclear, criminal charges are pending against the driver of the pickup truck. A motorcycle accident typically results in catastrophic injuries or wrongful death because without seatbelts, airbags, or the reinforced steel enclosure of protection that a car provides, motorcyclists are almost always injured in accidents.

Increased Roof Standards on SUVs Saving Lives in SUV Rollover Accidents

January 02, 2011

SUV rollover accidents are commonly life-altering accidents resulting in catastrophic injuries and fatalities. SUVs with roofs that do not meet minimum safety standards have long been a cause of rollover accident victims suffering more serious injuries. A recent study by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) which analyzed the impact of roof strength in SUV rollover accidents concluded that increases in SUV roof strength reduces injury to SUV occupants during SUV rollover accidents.

Georgia Motorcycle Accidents Typically Mean Permanent Life Changes

January 01, 2011

While any motor vehicle accident is a serious matter, motorcycle accidents are particularly dangerous. Motorcycle riders are particularly vulnerable to the negligent driving of others with whom a rider shares the road and extremely exposed when involved in a collision. More than 80 percent of all motorcycle accidents result in injury or death to the rider. Motorcycles have become increasingly popular both as a fuel-efficient means of transportation and a fun way to experience the back roads of Georgia. A motorcycle accident frequently means permanent injuries and lifelong medical treatment.
