Pedestrian accidents: 3 things you should do if you get hit

As a pedestrian, you have to remember that sometimes drivers are not looking out for you. Even if you properly walk through a crosswalk, a negligent driver could crash into you. This is a scary thought, especially because cars can cause severe injuries even if they hit you at slow speeds. Whether you walk every day or occasionally, it is important for you to be prepared if this ever happens.

When do work zone crashes happen most often?

Whether you are a road worker or you regularly drive through a work zone as you are heading to your job, you may want to keep in mind that certain times of year could be particularly dangerous. In Rome, and across all of Georgia's cities, the lives of road workers are cut short far too often because of the negligence of drivers. Sometimes, these accidents are caused by drivers who are under the influence, while others happen because people ignore signs or fail to reduce their speed.

Facts about falls and tips for preventing them

No matter where you are or what you are doing in Georgia, if you slip or trip and fall, you could be at risk for an injury. If you are looking at a smartphone or are distracted in another way, you may be responsible for the harm you suffer and the costs of medical attention. However, if your environment causes the fall in some way, the person who is responsible for the safe maintenance of the property may be at fault. Our legal team at Cromartie Law often helps clients analyze whether someone else's failure to make an area safe caused a fall.

Determining eligibility for workers' compensation

Many employees who are injured on the job can receive workers' compensation benefits in Georgia, but some specific rules apply in determining the eligibility. Even if employees are eligible, they may not have the freedom to choose all of the procedures and care providers they wish under their benefits.
