If you are injured in a car accident in Atlanta while you are driving within the scope of your employment, you may be able to make both a workers' compensation claim and a third party personal injury claim against the at-fault driver under Georgia law. For example, let's say you are driving a company car when another person runs a red light and hits you, causing injuries.  Under that scenario, you can not only make a workers' compensation claim through your employer, but you can also make a claim against…Read More

Disabled vehicles or vehicles that are on the shoulder of the road can often cause accidents in Georgia.  The requirements for making a claim for personal injuries sustained from these types of accidents are the same as any negligence claim.  The issues are whether the at-fault driver had a duty of care, whether the at-fault driver was negligent, whether the negligence caused the accident, and whether the claimant or plaintiff suffered from injuries or damages due to the accident. Perhaps what makes an accident involving a disabled vehicle or a…Read More

Under Georgia law, recovering compensation for injuries sustained in an automobile accident requires the claimant or plaintiff to prove liability of the other driver.  The elements that a personal injury plaintiff must prove in order to recover compensation include duty, negligence, causation, and damages.  What that means is that the plaintiff has to show that the at-fault driver owed a duty of care to the plaintiff, failed to satisfy that duty by acting negligently or carelessly, and that the at-fault driver's negligence caused the plaintiff to suffer from injuries and…Read More

Teenage drivers have a higher risk of getting into fatal motor vehicle accidents than most drivers.  The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration has data that shows in 2011, that teenagers ages 14 to 18 represented 20% of those who died in a car accident while driving with an invalid license and that speeding was a factor in 35% of fatal crashes involving teenagers.  Other statistics show that teenagers did not wear seatbelts, had alcohol in their systems, and engaged in potentially risky behaviors when fatalities were involved. Statistics in the…Read More

If you are injured in a car accident, determining what caused the accident is a key element in making a claim for compensation for your injuries.  Examining the surrounding circumstances, including whether the other driver was talking on his/her cell phone or sending text messages while driving could add significant value to your case. Texting and driving is prohibited under Georgia law and can be subject to criminal prosecution.  For a civil case, violating the criminal offense and pleading guilty to a ticket for texting and driving could constitute an…Read More

Riding a motorcycle in Atlanta is dangerous and often results in serious injuries or death when other cars and trucks on the road fail to keep a proper lookout for the safety of motorcyclists.  In fact, statistics from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration reveal the 15% of fatalities from vehicular accidents in 2012 were motorcyclists, even though motorcycles made up only 3% of registered vehicles in the United States. Like victims of any car or truck accident, a motorcyclist who is injured in an accident that is the fault…Read More

Bicyclists are considered motorist like any driver of a car, truck, or bus and are owed a duty of care from other drivers to ensure their safety.  As one could imagine, where a bicyclist is hit by a car, severe injuries, broken bones, fractures, brain injuries, and death often occur.  According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, bicyclists accounted for 2 percent of all traffic fatalities and 2 percent of all crash-related injuries in 2012.  Statistically, male bicyclists and bicyclists riding in the evening or at night are killed…Read More

Although car accidents involving sports utility vehicles (SUVs) and trucks are not normally different from any other accidents as far as proving liability against the driver who caused the wreck, when a SUV or a truck rolls over in a automobile wreck and the roof crushes, there could be additional liability against the manufacturer of the vehicle. Although roof crushes are not limited to trucks and SUVs, these vehicles are more susceptible to rolling over as a result of an automobile collision. A roof crush occurs when a vehicle rolls…Read More

Recovering Damages From a Drunk Driver If you are injured by or lost a loved one to a car accident caused by a drunk driver, you may not only recover compensation for medical expenses and pain and suffering, but you may also be able to recover what is known as "punitive damages."  The word punitive means inflicting punishment, and punitive damages that are awarded against a drunk driver are done so in order to punish the driver.  Thus, such damages are awarded above and beyond actual damages for medical expenses,…Read More
