Legislation may curtail 18-wheeler accident risk on Georgia roads

When an accident happens, a car or other passenger vehicle is no match for a fully loaded tractor-trailer traveling along at highway speeds. A distracted or inattentive truck driver who fails to react to slowing traffic up ahead can cause a collision resulting in serious injuries or death.

Georgia driver at fault for hitting pedestrian

A middle-aged Georgia woman was out on her morning jog with a friend through a crosswalk when she was struck by a pickup truck. She suffered serious injuries and was taken to a local hospital, where her condition was deemed to be critical. The 46-year-old driver of the pickup truck, also from Georgia, rolled through the stop sign without yielding.

Use of GPS contributes to distracted driver danger to others

Much has been written about the dangers of texting and talking on a cellphone while operating a motor vehicle. The truth is that focusing attention on just those two behaviors ignores the fact that anything that takes a driver’s attention away from the road contributes to making that person a distracted driver and a danger to others.

What happens if I wait too long to sue for damages?

You could lose your right to compensation by waiting too long after a car collision to sue the negligent driver who caused you to suffer serious injuries. Georgia law sets time limits within which you must file a lawsuit or risk having your claim dismissed when you do finally sue. This law is referred to as the statute of limitations.
