Inclement weather and truck crashes

From excessive speeds to truck driver fatigue, large truck crashes have a variety of causes. However, it is vital for drivers to realize the dangers associated with inclement weather when they get behind the wheel. In Rome, Georgia, and on roads across the country, poor weather conditions can increase the likelihood of a motor vehicle accident. Sadly, when large trucks collide with other vehicles, the outcome is often particularly upsetting due to the size of trucks, drivers having difficulty slowing down and other factors.

What you need to know about accidents in work zones

If you are driving on Georgia's highway system as the weather warms up and road crews begin to gather for a new season of work, then you already know how driving in work zones can present unique challenges. Being vigilant for workers' safety and monitoring for random hazards can all tax your vigilance, but by slowing down and making sure you follow safe driving practices, it can be just as safe as driving under any other conditions.

Protecting customers from slip-and-fall accidents

Slip-and-fall accidents are a common hazard in retail stores in Georgia. Wet floors are usually the main culprit. Floors may become wet due to customers tracking in rain, from spills or by watering systems in certain areas of a store. According to Chain Store Age, there are over 9 million slip-and-fall accidents each year that cause injuries. Store owners are liable for these injuries, which can add up and affect business.

Signs of nursing home abuse or neglect

There are many elderly people in nursing homes in Georgia. These people are often in there because they cannot take care of themselves or otherwise are unable to live on their own. Families have to make the hard decision to put their loved one’s care in the hands of people they do not know. The whole situation is based upon trust, but unfortunately, nursing home abuse is a reality. However, it is something that can be stopped.

Can I get workers’ compensation for repetitive stress injuries?

Workplace injuries are an all too common occurrence in many workplaces in Rome. Whether you work in an office, healthcare setting or manufacturing plant, at some point you may find yourself wondering if you can get workers’ comp for repetitive stress injuries. You may qualify for workers’ compensation benefits if you can prove your injuries are related to your current job duties.
