A property owner in Atlanta has a duty to ensure that those who visit his or her home or building will be safe from any hazardous conditions or actions that could lead to injury. As such, he or she can be found liable if an accident that could have been prevented occurs on the premises. If the property is a place of business, that liability is extended to accidents occurring not only from unsafe conditions, but also from the negligent actions of employees.
The damages from car accidents in Atlanta aren't always limited to just the cars. Thousands people are treated in hospital emergency rooms annually for injuries related to car accidents. Many of those injuries are severe and can even lead to the loss of life. Often, the injured aren't the ones at fault, but are instead the victims of the recklessness or bad judgment of someone else. Those responsible may not only face serious consequences, but also will have to live with the knowledge of the damages their actions caused.
The elderly members of our society are especially vulnerable to accidents, illness and even abuse by the people who are supposed to be their caretakers. Many elderly people are unable to care for themselves on their own anymore, and they should be treated with dignity and respect in their final days. When a family makes the difficult decision of placing a loved one in a nursing home, they should have the peace of mind knowing that the residence where their relative is staying will keep him or her safe and comfortable.
When we get behind the wheel of a car, we trust that everything about the vehicle is safe--from the body’s exterior, to the airbags and seatbelts, to the inside structure. We rely on auto manufacturers’ stringent safety testing and product recalls to make sure we’re only operating safe and reliable vehicles. Sadly, dangerous products make their way onto the market now and then, resulting in consumer injury or death. Products liability laws exist in Georgia to ensure manufacturers continue to build their products as safely as possible.
Everyone has the right to a fair trial, whether it's a personal injury case or a criminal one. If it's determined that a judge or jury's decisions weren't fair and the outcome is less than desirable, the plaintiff may have a chance for a retrial. It's a judge's responsibility to make sure that a trial remains fair and unbiased throughout the entire process in Georgia.
