Who’s at fault in an interstate pedestrian accident?

Pedestrians and interstates are never a good combination. The vehicles – traveling at speeds in excess of 70 mph – cannot react quickly enough to avoid a pedestrian. The drivers – zoning out to music or having conversations with their passengers – aren't thinking to look out for people on foot. Even worse, the pedestrians are completely vulnerable to death and catastrophic injury in the event of a collision.

Not all car accident injuries are visible

Imagine driving through Dalton on your daily commute. Unfortunately, a van t-boned your car as you were driving through an intersection. After the accident, you did a quick self-check and did not notice any broken bones or cuts. While you may not have noticed any injuries, not all of them are easy to detect or immediately obvious. This does not mean that they are any less serious.

Working through parenting challenges with your ex

Having to work with your ex on matters related to your children isn't always easy, but it is necessary. There are varying degrees of cooperation that parents will have to work though as their children grow. When you and your ex have to work closely together, you need to do your part to prevent conflicts.

Four things to avoid while on a motorcycle

Riding on a motorcycle on an open road without another vehicle in sight is dangerous enough. However, when you start to factor in bad weather, poorly maintained roads, and the occasional random bit of wildlife that decides to run into the middle of the road, things become even more dangerous. Then there is the number one hazard that you have to watch for whether you are riding through Dalton or on a country road: cars and trucks.

How personal injury lawsuits – and juries – improve safety

For more than 200 years, juries have been impaneled in courts throughout to determine the facts in civil lawsuits. The founders believed that the right to a jury trial is a fundamental right. Most Americans likely understand the importance of the jury in a criminal case. Fewer recognize that the framers guaranteed the right to a jury through the Seventh Amendment to resolve many types of civil disputes. The idea of resolving disputes over personal injury through the civil process was not invented on this continent. It dates back to medieval times in the common law adopted by our founders. It also dates back in some form to many ancient societies.

Unsecured loads are the focus of annual road safety blitz

Road debris may seem like an environmental issue alone. However, objects that litter highways in northern Georgia and along the I-75 corridor may act as reminders of a potential road hazard. The AAA Foundation for Traffic Safety says that between 2011 and 2014 more than 200,000 motor vehicle accidents were tied to items falling off trucks or other vehicles, according to Science Daily. Unsecured loads are a common cause of truck accidents.
