Did fatigue, alcohol or distraction contribute to Georgia crash?

It was a tragic scene early in the morning when a young woman got a flat tire on I-20 in Georgia recently. She had pulled off to the side of the road and had called two male friends to come and help her. It was still more than two hours before the sun came up, but her two friends came to the woman's aid. As they were changing the rear tire on the driver's side of the vehicle, however, a pickup truck came by and struck both of the men.

Wrongful death lawsuit filed in Georgia seeks answers

Losing a loved one unexpectedly can be a devastating experience for Georgia families. People in this difficult position often have a number of questions, including whether the loss could have been prevented. When the death is caused by the actions or inactions of another party, the family may choose to pursue a wrongful death lawsuit against the appropriate person. In many cases, legal action is not only an effective way of punishing a negligent party, but it can also get family members the answers they need and deserve.

How Many Die From Medical Mistakes In U.S. Hospitals?

If this many people were dying in plane crashes every year, our governing bodies would be falling all over themselves to do something to stop it.

Do 'freaky fast' promises make company freaky negligent?

Drivers who operate their vehicles in an unsafe manner can end up causing a devastating accident. Often, the reckless drivers involved in these crashes will say that they were distracted, in a hurry or not thinking clearly behind the wheel. In these cases, their actions are generally linked to their individual negligence as a driver.

Report: 130 Georgia motorists injured in winter-weather accidents

Drivers across Atlanta generally do not expect that a drive home from work or a quick trip to the grocery store could end with a serious accident. But many motorists in the area were caught off guard recently when snow and ice turned some Georgia roads into skating rinks. Drivers in many southern states are not accustomed to driving in these types of conditions, so it is not all that surprising that a number of people were involved in serious car accidents recently.
