What are workers’ compensation death benefits in Georgia?

Sadly, many cases both in Atlanta and throughout the rest of the U.S. are literal examples of people’s jobs being the death of them. According to information collected by the Bureau of Labor Statistics, 2013 saw a rate of 3.2 work-related deaths among every 100,000 full-time employees in America. These deaths not only represent an enormous emotional loss to victims’ families, but a significant financial one, as well. The expenses related to death coupled with the loss of one’s income can leave families facing serious financial troubles.

Is texting and driving a major issue in Georgia?

If you have driven through Atlanta recently, you have probably noticed that cell phones are a popular accessory for many motorists. In fact, you may even find yourself talking on the phone or texting while driving now and then. As a car accident victim, however, you are also too familiar with just how damaging distracted driving practices can be. Texting while driving and other types of driving distractions cause a huge number of accident injuries and fatalities every year, and are a serious problem in the state.

Dog food safety and product liability concerns

Every year, Americans spend millions of dollars on pet care and accessory products. Many Georgia residents provide their beloved four-legged friends with top-quality pet foods and treats in an effort to promote the health and well-being of their animals. Unfortunately, however, the number of high-profile product recalls and lawsuits that have occurred in recent years illustrates that pets are often subjected to painful and preventable injuries. That is why it is important for pet owners and pet food consumers to be aware of possible product liability risks and watchdog efforts.

Fatal accident under investigation

The sheer size and weight of commercial vehicles makes them extremely dangerous. That is why truck drivers are required to undergo extra training and maintain license credentials. Unfortunately, however, there are instances where a lack of proper training, supervision, or oversight results in serious accidents. While details concerning the incident had yet to be provided to the public, a recent fatal accident involving a Georgia resident serves as a sobering reminder that commercial trucks can pose a real threat to the public.
