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.  

1 dead, 4 suffer personal injury in collision in Forsyth County

Another brutally disturbing crossover accident occurred in Georgia on Feb. 10 at about 3 p.m. The accident occurred in Forsyth County on Brown's Bridge Road near Floyd Lane. Both death and personal injury occurred when the operator of a 2002 luxury car that was going east crossed the center line of the roadway and crashed into a pickup truck that was traveling easterly on the road. The one death was to a 26-year-old female passenger of the crossover vehicle.

A personal injury attorney is trained to handle civil death claim

There is only one way to interpret a stopped school bus with lights flashing and a stop sign extended outward from the bus. In Georgia and all other states, those are the warning signals that tell a driver who is approaching the back or front of the bus to stop immediately and don't try to pass until the all-clear is given. When a motorist ignores or fails to see these unmistakable signs, he or she will be liable for personal injury or death damages that the motorist causes.

Fatal motor vehicle accidents have increased in Georgia

There has been a sharp rise in highway fatalities in Georgia during the past two years, according to state transportation authorities. During that period, there were more than 1,500 traffic deaths reported, which averages out to an astounding four deaths per day. Increasing driver inattention appears to be the main culprit in causing most of the fatal motor vehicle accidents, says a spokesperson for the state's Department of Transportation.

Passenger has personal injury claim in single car accident

Single vehicle accidents in Georgia are not exempt from the laws of negligence and the duty to compensate innocent victims. Whenever the driver of a vehicle negligently causes a collision of his or her vehicle with a wall, barrier, tree, pole or other obstruction, that driver will be liable for personal injury damages to anyone injured directly from the accident. This will most often apply to passengers in the negligent driver's vehicle who suffer injuries from the accident.

Fiery explosions not uncommon in some truck accidents

The Georgia State Patrol has reported a truck accident that resulted in three serious injuries on Dec. 24. The accident occurred at about 1:30 a.m. on West Highway 16 when a pickup truck driver crossed the center line and crashed into a semi-truck head-on. As occasionally happens in truck accidents, there was an explosion after the collision. The tractor-trailer went off the roadway in flames, struck a telephone pole and then a mailbox, prior to jackknifing and ending up stationary with its cab on fire.

Personal injury recovery likely for victim of freakish accident

Vehicular accidents can take some unexpected twists, turns and configurations. An incident occurring on Dec. 14 in Cartersville is an example of a chaotic series of events, comprising an accident that caused personal injury and sent two people to hospitals. It started at about 7:18 p.m., when the driver of a pickup truck heading southbound on Burnt Hickory Road veered inexplicably into the northbound lane and struck the driver's side mirror of another pickup truck, according to the Georgia State Patrol.

Personal injury, death occur in early morning bus crash

In Georgia and everywhere else, there is nothing more tragic or consequential than the violent death of a young child. When a horrific accident occurs while the child is under the control of the school district, parents' reactions are likely to be justifiably hyper-critical. In addition, the paradoxical failure of the school system to meet its solemn duty to the children will tend to permanently heighten the parents' sense of loss. Consequently, personal injury and wrongful death recoveries for children in school bus accidents are likely to be substantial.

Car accidents: Crash involving wrong-way driver kills 2 brothers

Head-on collisions can be exceedingly dangerous, potentially placing the lives of everyone involved in harm's way. Many families have been left to grieve the loss of a loved one following car accidents that occurred under similar circumstances. A recent collision on an interstate in Georgia claimed the lives of two college students who were traveling back to school after spending time at home for the holidays.
