The treatments for cancer or other serious illnesses can be harsh on a patient's body and can be difficult to recover from. Sometimes, these treatments can even cause permanent damage. Depending on the illness and the treatment, patients may be permanently reliant on things like oxygen tanks or other healthcare equipment. When this equipment is compromised, the results may be deadly, as was the case for a Georgia woman whose power was turned off despite her efforts and the efforts of her family and her doctors to keep the power on. After her death, a wrongful death suit was filed against Georgia Power, claiming negligence.
The National Highway Transportation Safety Administration tracks the sources of injuries to bicycle riders, as well as the causes for cyclist fatalities.
Summer is here, and motorcyclists across the country are taking full advantage of the warm, sunny weather. The increasing number of motorcycles means that the drivers of other vehicles need to be more aware of their surroundings. A motorcycle, even a large one, can more easily hide in a driver's blind spot or be overlooked by other drivers. Last week, Georgia authorities responded to a motorcycle accident between a motorcycle and another vehicle that resulted in the death of the motorcyclist.
Drivers across the country are involved in accidents every day, and many of these accidents may involve young drivers. These young people may be more likely to be involved in an accident due to their inexperience. It can be easy for an inexperienced driver to misjudge the distance between vehicles or to overlook smaller vehicles like motorcycles. However, these mistakes can sometimes lead to a deadly car or motorcycle accident, as was the case in a recent Georgia crash.
Areas where vehicles enter and exit roadways can be incredibly dangerous if drivers are not careful and aware of their surroundings. Major roadways, like highways and interstates, may be especially dangerous for drivers due to the large number of other vehicles or the higher speeds at which they are traveling. A car accident occurred recently in Georgia that resulted in multiple injuries and the death of one individual.
Head-on collisions are terrifying to imagine, and even more so to be involved in. Not surprisingly, these crashes often result in serious injuries or death. Georgia authorities are currently investigating the underlying cause of one such car accident.
Georgia drivers are no strangers to pop-up storms and slippery roads, and most drivers take care to drive slowly when the roads are hazardous. However, sometimes drivers are not as careful as they should be and accidents can occur. Recently a driver hydroplaned on a slippery road and collided with a school bus. This car accident resulted in several injuries and the death of one child.
A crash between a car and a motorcycle can be devastating for all of the people involved in the accident. If the people involved are lucky then the accident only results in minor injuries, but it may be more likely in this type of scenario for serious or fatal injuries to occur. Earlier this month Georgia authorities responded to a motorcycle accident that ultimately caused the death of one individual.
