Where does Georgia stand in terms of fatal car crashes?

Most of our readers probably know that car accidents are one of the leading causes of death in America. The statistics can fluctuate from year to year, but most people would probably expect the statistics to show a year-over-year decrease in fatalities, in light of ever-increasing safety standards and standard equipped safety devices in our vehicles. So, where does Georgia stand in terms of fatal car crashes?

Do we really know enough about nursing home neglect and abuse?

When our Georgia readers hear about nursing home neglect and abuse, they probably envision situations where young and impatient members of nursing home staff are abusing or neglecting elderly residents of the assisted living facility. As it turns out, that may be correct in one respect -- the National Center on Elder Abuse reports that an estimated six out of seven residents of nursing homes and assisted living facilities are over the age of 65. But, even if that common assumption is correct, do we really know enough about nursing home neglect and abuse?

Mother of deceased inmate files wrongful death case in Georgia

Our readers may have noticed that there is a disturbing trend that seems to be rippling through local and national news coverage these days -- inmates who die while in the custody of law enforcement officers and county jails. The most explosive story, of course, came out of Baltimore, where riots and looting erupted after a man died in police custody after he was reportedly denied medical attention. Unfortunately, a similar case has also played out in Georgia.

The cost of car accidents in Georgia

It can be hard for Georgia residents to imagine what it is like to be involved in a serious car accident, or even to lose a loved one in such a crash. Car accidents are common, but most of them are the run-of-the-mill "fender bender" type of accidents. However, car accidents are still one of the leading causes of death and injury in the United States, and Georgia is not immune to the associated costs.
