Personal injury recovery is available to nursing home victims

Nursing home neglect and abuse is well-documented nationwide, including in Georgia. One of the biggest problems appears to be the staffing of nursing homes with unskilled workers who are underpaid and under-supervised. When a loved one in a nursing home suffers injury or death from nursing home negligence or intentional abuse, the institution may be held liable for personal injury or wrongful death damages. This is true even if the institution knows nothing about the incident; the institution's owners are liable for the torts of their employees carried out within the scope of their job duties.

Police arrest 9 on major drug charges, criminal defense follows

With the dangers of opioids taking center stage, concerns about cocaine may have lessened in many Georgia communities. However, the cocaine trade appears to be running strong, as indicated by the Chatham-Savannah Counter Narcotics Team's recent arrest of nine persons and the seizure of 25 kilograms of uncut cocaine. Authorities say that the drugs have a $4 million street value, which they report to be the narcotics team's biggest single cocaine bust. Criminal defense attorneys will now step forth to evaluate each of the defendants' cases and determine if any of the police arrests were defective, unjustified or otherwise subject to attack.

Personal injury claim asserts dangerous defects in lawn mower

The law of product liability in Georgia generally follows the same principles that are applicable in all jurisdictions nationwide. Generally, a manufacturer and/or retailer can be held strictly liable for putting a defective product on the market that results in personal injury to a consumer who was using the product according to its normal use. In addition to strict liability for defective products, manufacturers and retailers can be liable for negligence in the design or manufacture of a defective product. Sometimes, breach of warranty is also used as a theory of recovery for injuries sustained from a defective product.

Car accidents with chain reactions take a heavy toll

Some of the chain reaction accidents that occur in Georgia are bizarre and sometimes difficult to fully piece together. If the outcomes were not so tragic, the configurations and dynamics of such car accidents might be interesting to analyze. Forensic engineers with experience in reconstructing accidents are in fact brought into the process of personal injury litigation on a regular basis to analyze and explain how the accidents occurred and who is at fault.
