Atlanta, Georgia's Accident, Injury and Commercial Litigation Attorneys

March 2017 Archives

Paid medical malpractice claims have declined since 1992

Medical malpractice may not be particularly common, but it also affects plenty of people every year. Medical malpractice lawsuits are critical pieces of civil litigation because the victims need financial compensation in the wake of a medical error or botched medical procedure that caused them pain and made them suffer through extensive (and unnecessary) treatment.

Fatal hit-and-run accident under investigation by police

A fatal car crash yesterday in Atlanta, Georgia has police investigating the matter after a driver fled from the scene after the wreck. The crash occurred around 3:30 p.m. yesterday when two cars travelling south on GA 400 were involved in a collision. The wreck left four people injured and killed a 17-year-old. One of the drivers involved in the crash drove off, but was later captured by the police. Charges are pending and few other details have been released about this crash.

Truck jack-knifes on Interstate 75

Far south of Atlanta is Macon, Georgia, the site of a truck accident that is the subject of today's post. The accident involved a 60-year-old man who was driving a tractor trailer dump truck that jack-knifed on Interstate 75. The wreck caused traffic to become congested, but there were no reports of injuries in our source article. It appears that unfortunate, other than a damaged truck, occurred here.

On medical malpractice and the need for an attorney

Imagine going to the doctor's office for a routine checkup, and as the doctor marks off the many things on his or her list that need to be completed, he or she finds something that surprises them. They run some tests and determine that you have a serious medical condition that needs to be dealt with right away. You start getting very scared, and understandably so.

Criminal, civil penalties possible for drunk drivers

Drunk driving is still a far-too-prevalent phenomenon in our country, and it continues to affect the lives of many people every day. For those who behave in this unacceptable way and get behind the wheel of a car while under the influence of alcohol or drugs, they will face the brunt of the law when a police officer arrests them.
