Speed: a common threat to your safety and well-being

Georgia readers may know that the number of auto accident fatalities in the United States is startlingly high.

Even if you choose to ignore the signs, you probably have a good idea when it is not safe for you to get behind the wheel of a car.

Would you be shocked to learn that some pilots behave the same way?

Do issues after hernia surgery have you considering legal action?

When you suffer from an injury or other physical medical issue, you may not immediately understand its severity.

A tired trucker is a major threat to your safety

Due to their heavier size and weight, a semi-trailer can inflict serious damage when involved in accidents with smaller vehicles.

One of these regulations pertains to the permitted number of hours a trucker can be behind the wheel consecutively.

Was your loved one abused in a nursing home? You can fight back

When a person in a nursing home experiences abuse or other types of mistreatment, that person may feel embarrassed, confused and afraid to speak out.
