Georgia Automatic Door Accidents

Automatic doors cause numerous accidents in Georgia annually in shopping centers, airports, hospitals, banks, gas stations, convenience stores, and other facilities that use them. Automatic doors do not appear hazardous at first blush. They are inviting to the public because they seemingly greet shoppers with open arms as the shopper enters the store. The automatic doors of a store also bid farewell and express gratitude to the shopper for spending money as the door swings open to the outside, so the shopper does not have to struggle to hold the door as they exit. Automatic doors further close automatically, so the weather stays outside. However, they can be hazardous to shoppers if the owner fails to maintain the doors properly. The owner will be liable to the shopper for his or her injuries.

Georgia Personal Injury Attorneys Educate Clients About Nerve Injuries Suffered in Traumatic Events

Car wrecks, slip and falls, construction accidents and motorcycle accidents are just a few examples of the traumatic events that can cause severe nerve damage. Any traumatic event that compresses pulls, stretches, or rips the body's nerves may result in nerve damage.  Nerve damage patients experience a reduction in mobility of the affected limb, or the injury could be so severe that the person loses all movement in the involved limb. Nerve damage suffered in an accident may be permanent; however, advancements in medicine can "rewire" the damaged nerves. Rewiring of the damaged nerves accompanied by a strenuous physical therapy regimen could help the injured person regain the strength and mobility they once enjoyed.

They also allow us to learn about the world around us. Our vision is irreplaceable, and its value to us is immeasurable. How, then, can you place a dollar value on one of our senses?

Atlanta Slip and Fall Injuries Often Cause Serious Wrist Injuries

March 25, 2018

The first thing we do when we slip is put our arms out in a desperate attempt to regain our balance. Failing that, we put our hands down to cushion the blow. Unless you have received training in martial arts or defensive tactics and have learned to fall with a specific technique to break the fall, you will likely put your hands down first in an effort to avoid more serious injury. Putting your hands down to break a fall places tremendous strain on the bones, joints, ligaments, and tendons of the hand and wrist. The substantial stress of the fall coupled with the body's weight compressing and contorting the wrist can cause a severe injury.

Winning Damages In Georgia for Injuries When No One Can Figure Out What Happened

The legal doctrine of Res Ipsa Loquitur Survives Helps Victims Obtain Compensation in Tough Cases in Georgia

Sir Isaac Newton’s laws of physics helps us understand the world around us. He developed theories to explain what we see, feel, and experience by putting into words how the physical world works.  One of the maxims Newton espoused is that every “to every action, there is an equal and opposite, or contrary, reaction.” Most people are familiar with the concept even if they did not study advanced physics. In Georgia accident cases, whether in car accidents, slip and fall cases, or severe injuries that occur on a worksite, the injuries the victim suffered would be the “reaction” from Newton’s maxim. Sometimes, however, determining the “action” or the cause of the incident may be next to impossible. The legal doctrine of Res Ipsa Loquitur can take the place of evidence of wrongdoing that will help explain why the victim suffered his or her injuries, although it can only be used in rare circumstances.

As a result of this tragic event, Uber suspended its autonomous vehicle program and the National Transportation Safety Board activated its emergency response team to investigate the cause of the crash. Law enforcement officers from the Tempe police department and the Maricopa County Attorneys Office have also initiated an investigation to determine the cause of the fatal bicycle accident.
