What if you suffer permanent disability in a motorcycle accident?

A previous post on this blog touched on the fact that the day and time that Georgia residents decide to take their motorcycle for a ride could make a difference in whether or not they are involved in a potentially deadly motorcycle accident. As springtime rolls into summer, there will be more motorcyclists on the roadways, and those statistics will probably become even more relevant. But, what happens in the aftermath of a motorcycle accident? What if, as the result of another driver's negligence, a motorcyclist is left with a permanent disability?

Day and time you go for a ride may lead to a motorcycle accident

Most of our readers know that various entities, both public and private, keep track of a wide range of statistics on just about every aspect of life in America. Vehicle accident statistics, in particular, are useful to show where, how and when these accidents occur. The idea is that if we can figure out the cause of these oftentimes devastating accidents, perhaps we can take action to reduce the number of accidents that occur.

95-year-old woman suffers from elder abuse in nursing home

Most of us can't imagine what it must be like to get a call from law enforcement officials who are explaining how an elderly relative who lives in a nursing home has been abused -- that a loved one has been the victim of a crime. But, that is likely what has played out for the family members of a 95-year-old woman in nearby Bartow County, who was reportedly abused recently by a nursing home staff member.

Motorcycle awareness by motorists in Georgia can save lives

It can seem like an easy thing to say that drivers need to be aware of their surroundings when operating a vehicle on the roadways of Georgia. But, in reality, there is far more to it than that. In fact, there are groups throughout the country, including in Georgia, who make a special point of attempting to increase driver awareness of motorcycles in particular.

Taking the right approach after a truck accident in Georgia

Semi-truck accidents are usually covered in the nightly news, mostly because they can cause serious delays in traffic as well as major damage on the roadways. Many people in Georgia are used to seeing the overhead news footage shot from a helicopter surveying an overturned semi-truck, or perhaps a car collision involving a semi-truck. While these news segments may make for interesting visual displays for local news channels, the fact remains that truck accidents usually involve people -- whether it is the truck driver or people in other vehicles -- who have suffered serious injuries.
