The misdiagnosis of aortic dissection

Patients in Atlanta place a great deal of trust in the diagnostic capabilities of their doctors. Unfortunately, doctors, nurses, and other health care providers are only human, and thus subject to the same errors in judgment as everyone else. However, due to the impact that their decisions have on their patients’ lives, there may be little tolerance for doctor errors.

Explaining the attractive nuisance doctrine

One need only take a drive around the streets of Atlanta to see children at play in the city’s many parks and public areas. Yet every so often, it’s not uncommon to see kids playing in potentially dangerous areas, such as construction sites and near railroads. When parents come to us here at the offices of Garland, Samuel, and Loeb after children have been injured playing in these areas, they often want to know who’s responsible for protecting their kids from these dangers. In this post, we explain the legal guidelines governing such cases, commonly known as the Attractive Nuisance Doctrine.

Can long-term health effects result from a concussion?

If you were injured in a car crash or hit your head in a slip-and-fall accident on an icy day during one of Atlanta’s recent storms, you might want to think twice about that bump on your head. New research has shown that even a mild concussion can leave people with long-lasting effects.

The importance of having uninsured or underinsured coverage

One of the worst things a person can face is not being able to pay expensive medical bills following a car accident. After a crash, it can be easy to assume that the bills will be paid by the person who was responsible for the accident. According to the National Association of Insurance Commissioners, 49 states, including Georgia, require all drivers to maintain liability coverage on their vehicles to cover damages resulting from a car accident. Unfortunately, many drivers still do not carry auto insurance, or their insurance is not sufficient to cover the expenses of an accident.
