Motorcycle accidents can cause significant and catastrophic injuries, even death.  Motorcycles are often considered more dangerous than other motor vehicles on the roadway, specifically because motorcycles are small and riders have less protection.  Additionally, wearing a motorcycle helmet is not required under Georgia law, and as a result, many motorcyclists are at a greater risk of suffering head injuries that could prove to be permanent, if not fatal.  As such, regardless of what is required under Georgia law, motorcyclists should take additional steps to ensure they are safely operating their bikes on Georgia’s roadways and highways.

Georgia Personal Injury Attorneys Talk About Laws Protecting Sports Officials

As the NFL season finally arrives and high school football, along with other sports, are in full gear, the attention of thousands of people throughout Georgia will be drawn to gridirons, soccer fields, and other playing fields across the state.

They are in control over games and events to a large extent, but they are not in control over everything and tend to be the brunt of the blame for many mishaps and injuries that happen during games. Perhaps that is the reason why the state of Georgia grants sports officials limited immunity from civil lawsuits.

Our Pedestrian Accident Attorneys in Georgia Warn Georgians About The Dangers Lurking On City Streets

Naturally, walkers are not protected by sheet metal, steel, high-grade car glass, seat belts, and airbags like the passenger of cars. This lack of protection makes pedestrians extremely vulnerable to death and injury. Georgia personal injury laws, however, serve to protect pedestrians from the dangers associated with walking in areas shared with cars. More could be done to protect pedestrians, including encouraging pedestrians to protect themselves.

Frequently Asked Questions about Nursing Home Abuse and Neglect in Georgia

August 01, 2017

When family members entrust elderly loved ones to the care of a Georgia nursing home, they justifiably assume that their loved one will receive appropriate care to meet their loved one's needs and that the staff will not subject the loved one to abuse. Unfortunately, these reasonable expectations are sometimes left unfulfilled when nursing homes elect to place profits above quality of care. Nursing homes in Atlanta or the surrounding areas of Georgia may fail to provide adequate staffing levels or otherwise fail to implement appropriate policies for elderly residents who suffer from age-related cognitive limitations, such as those caused by Alzheimer's disease, dementia or physical limitations that make them prone to falls. In such scenarios, the nursing home may be liable for injuries or wrongful death caused by its failure to provide adequate care and supervision.
