Wrongful Death Archives

Why some safety experts are pushing for perpetual Daylight Saving Time

At this moment, workers across Georgia and around the nation all have one eye on the clock, eagerly counting down the hours until they are released to enjoy the weekend. In fact, this coming Saturday and Sunday are perhaps even more anticipated than normal given that Daylight Saving Time will officially come to an end.

Do discussions about improving road safety need to address speed?

For those who might have missed it, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration released a rather grim report last week outlining just how deadly our nation's roads and highways have become. Indeed, this report indicated that almost 18,000 people lost their lives in motor vehicle accidents during the first half of 2016, a 10 percent increase from the same time last year and a continuation of a startling trend that began in 2015.

With the start of the football season comes the risk of heat-related illness

As hard as it may be to believe, the 2016 football season is officially here, with players at all levels -- from youth and high school to college and professional -- putting on their pads and heading back to the field. If you don't believe it, consider that the Atlanta Falcons officially opened training camp earlier this week, while the Georgia Bulldogs first game is just over a month away.

Study supports attitude against distracted teen drivers

Many times it is a teen driver's inexperience that gains the most notoriety when they are involved in a car accident. Unfortunately, it is not only inexperience that puts them at a greater risk for accidents but also their increasingly common use of cell phones while at the wheel. According to a recent report released by the AAA Foundation for Traffic Safety, the majority of automobile accidents involving teen drivers also involve some other type of distraction.

Pursuit of justice in a time of pain

When you feel like the four walls are closing in, when you close your eyes and your memories are of a person or people who are not with you anymore, it can be hard. It's harder when you open your eyes and your reality is that your life is forever changed, and it isn't off-color to have an overwhelming desire to make anyone remotely responsible pay.

Help in your time of need

There is no hurt more painful in this world than the loss of a loved one. The struggle can be difficult even when the person died of natural causes at an old age. But when a person is taken from your life rapidly and unexpectedly, your own pain can be debilitating. Seeking financial retribution and justice may not be the first priority you have, but your situation may necessitate it.

A plan of action against pedestrian deaths

If you have watched the news lately, you may have heard of a few recent pedestrian deaths. In fact, the statistics across the nation show that Georgia has become a front-runner for pedestrian-related accidents. From 2014 to 2015 the rest of the nation's incidence of pedestrian death increased by 10 percent. However, in Georgia, the death rate related to pedestrian accidents skyrocketed to 21 percent.

Fatal accidents often leave Georgia families with uncertainties

Fatal accidents are always tragic, leaving families without their treasured loved one. Unfortunately, fatal accidents often leave families with more than emotional damages; they leave them with financial uncertainties. If your family has suffered a loss because of another person's negligence, you may find relief from your unexpected financial burdens in the form of wrongful death compensation.
