How can you spot a drowsy driver on the road?

By now, most everyone in Atlanta probably knows that adults are recommended to get at least between seven to eight hours of sleep every night. Yet often, people feel as though they can sacrifice an hour or two here and there without hurting anybody but themselves. Unfortunately, there’s the potential for danger in that line of thinking.

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.

Thousands injured in work zone accidents every year

Work zones, especially along major freeways, have become such a common sight in Georgia that it can be easy for drivers to not even realize they're in a construction zone--that is, until traffic has suddenly come to a stop or the lane they're driving in closes. Consequently, construction zones are dangerous for motorists and construction workers alike.

Man ejected from car after hitting tractor-trailer

Drivers in Fulton County are likely aware of what damages an accident can cause.

How do truck drivers’ hours affect accident rates?

Chances are that you frequently encounter large trucks on a regular basis on Georgia roadways, particularly on busy freeways. The size and speed of these vehicles can often present a danger to you and others sharing the road. While a number of factors can contribute to trucking accidents, such as alcohol use, speeding and reckless driving, fatigue is a serious issue for many truck drivers and has been increasing in recent years.

What steps should you take immediately after a car crash?

After a car accident in Georgia, emotions are most likely to be running high. You or a loved one may also be injured, further adding to the confusion. It can be overwhelming dealing with the aftermath of a crash, but it’s important to take the right steps.

Man dies after car is rear-ended

Car accidents in Fulton County, Georgia can be caused by a number of things. Some of these include driver distraction, drunk driving, disobeying traffic laws, unsafe road conditions and inclement weather. Drivers need to be aware of what is going on around them at all times and pay due diligence to the road. Those who fail to do this are often surprised at just how quickly things can go from fine to devastating.

Distracted driving can lead to accidents

Unfortunately, it is not uncommon to see drivers in the Atlanta area engaged in distracting behaviors when they should have their entire focus on the road. Here at Garland, Samuel & Loeb we know that distracted driving is a problem in Fulton County and recognize the role it plays in both serious and deadly car accidents.

Brain injuries can be catastrophic

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, there were 2.5 million traumatic brain injuries that were reported in 2010 in the U.S. A number of these could be considered catastrophic injuries. Catastrophic injuries can severely affect a person’s and his or her family’s lifestyle by preventing the injured person from working here in Fulton County, Georgia. When an injury is described as catastrophic, it typically means that it is a permanent injury that disables someone from working gainfully in his or her chosen career.
