Different ways that animals can cause a crash

On the road, all sorts of dangers may lie around the corner, from ice to a drunk driver who veers into your lane. However, it is important to be aware of some of the other potential hazards that are out there, such as animals. Our law office knows that animals can cause motor vehicle wrecks in many ways and we would like to draw attention to some in order to help readers reduce the chances of a collision.

When a traffic accident upends your career

People realize that motor vehicle collisions frequently bring a number of consequences, such as broken bones or the loss of life. With that said, a traffic wreck can have other ramifications, which may not be clear right away. For example, someone’s career may be thrown off course due to injuries they sustained in the wreck. Furthermore, someone whose job duties involve driving, such as a trucker or a taxi driver, might have difficulty from a mental standpoint.

Drowsy driving and graveyard shifts

Drivers become tired for numerous reasons, such as sleep loss or taking a certain medication. Sometimes, this drowsiness is short-term, such as a driver being tired due to missing sleep one night, while others may suffer from chronic sleep deprivation or challenges that leave them tired on a daily basis. Moreover, work can make people tired, especially for those who work an excessive amount of overtime or are required to work throughout the night.

Handling an accident while traveling

People find themselves involved in motor vehicle crashes in many different scenarios. Sometimes, the wreck only involves one vehicle, while other accidents may occur under unique circumstances, such as in the middle of a vacation. Whether you are traveling in another country, outside of the state, or even on a day trip within your state, car accidents can be especially complicated when you are away from home.

Reviewing employer workers' compensation requirements

You go to work in Rome every workday with the confidence and security that comes from knowing that were you to be injured while on the job, workers' compensation benefits would be available to cover many of the resulting expenses. Imagine the confusion, frustration and fear you might feel if after such an injury occurred, you were told by your employer that it did not offer such benefits. Such is the situation that many of those that we here at Cromartie Law have worked with have encountered. Typically, companies defend such a response by saying that they are not required to carry workers' compensation coverage. Thankfully, you can know for yourself whether that is true or not. 

Is your loved one suffering harassment in a nursing home?

Nursing home living in Georgia should be a positive experience for your loved one. Medical, physical and emotional support should be available to help him or her live the best life possible during the golden years. Unfortunately, for many, this is not what happens.
