Injured in a pedestrian accident? Compensation can be crucial

An accident can happen in the blink of an eye. The time between a driver's realization that a collision is imminent and the collision itself is almost nothing, and victims of these accidents may never even see the crash coming. This can often be the case in pedestrian accidents.

Where to turn after a crash with an uninsured motorist

Readers of this blog likely have some important questions about their rights and legal options after a car accident. People are often frustrated, mad and dealing with a great deal of pain after a crash, and they want to know where to turn for help and answers.

Was negligence a factor in your car accident?

We often discuss negligent or reckless behaviors that can and do lead to motor vehicle accidents on this blog. We talk about drivers who crash while they are drunk, distracted or driving dangerously and how, in many cases, they can be held liable for the damages that result from their behaviors.

How the ban on texting and driving is affecting safety

Imagine you are driving home after a long day at work. You pull onto the road and are quickly surrounded by other cars, all being driven by people eager to get home. Now imagine letting go of the wheel and closing your eyes for five seconds. In that span of time, traffic could come to a stop ahead of you; you could drift into another lane and sideswipe another vehicle; or you could fail to see someone crossing the road.

The dangers of drowsy driving

Car accidents can happen in the blink of an eye. But too often, they happen because a driver isn't blinking: He or she is sleeping. Drowsy driving continues to be a very real safety issue for motorists in and around Atlanta, but people don't seem be to getting this message.

Numerous victims recovering from devastating crash in Atlanta

We often read about car accidents that are the result of some very dangerous drivers. They may be drunk, reckless, unlicensed, distracted or have fallen asleep behind the wheel. But in many cases, the details of what caused a driver to get into an accident are not released until after an investigation has been completed.

Memorial Day weekend accidents increase significantly in Georgia

While many people were relaxing and enjoying the long holiday weekend, those who were on the roads across Georgia may have had a much more upsetting Memorial Day. According to recent reports, there were 17 people killed in motor vehicle accidents this past weekend. Sadly, this is a dramatic increase in the number of fatalities that occurred last year during the same time when six people were killed.

Woman killed in accident while updating Facebook status

It was just seven words that were supposed to show others that a young driver was feeling happy one morning: "The Happy Song makes me so HAPPY." However, typing out those words and posting them as her Facebook status meant that the 32-year-old woman was not focused on the road. In the time it took to send that message, the woman's car crossed over the center line and crashed into a recycling truck. The woman died in the accident.
