Errands off the clock and workers' compensation

You regularly run errands for your Georgia employer. Sometimes these occur before work, or on your way home, and sometimes you stop to pick something up on your lunch break. If you were hurt at the office, you would expect workers' compensation, but what about when you are in your car? At Cromartie Law, we understand the confusion that often occurs over offsite accidents.

Truck maintenance and the risk of a crash

Between the amount of time it can take a trucker to slow down and their massive size, large trucks can be deadly when they collide with another vehicle. Sadly, this happens too often in Georgina and the rest of the country. There are many reasons why large truck wrecks occur and we have covered some on this blog, such as truck driver fatigue, intoxicated driving, etc. It is also important to point out that negligent truck maintenance is responsible for some of the large truck collisions that happen. Sadly, some trucking companies fail to take these matters seriously, thereby increasing the chances of a crash significantly.

Poor road markings and dangerous intersections

The risk of a motor vehicle wreck is heightened by many factors, such as failure to observe stop signs and distractions behind the wheel (talking to other people in the car, cell phones, etc.). However, some crashes are also caused by less common factors, such as poor road markings at an intersection. If a driver does not see a stop sign, for example, they may drive through an intersection and collide with another vehicle at a dangerously high rate of speed. As a result, it is essential for anyone who notices poor road markings to speak up and for those involved in a crash caused by this problem to examine their options.
