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.
As you age, your body becomes frailer, no matter how healthy your lifestyle, and for many seniors in Georgia, this leads to a fall. The risk isn't the same for every senior, though.
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.
With the advent of pleasant springtime days and nights, more pedestrians are evident here in northwest Georgia, and the numbers will only increase throughout the summer months.
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.
