What must you prove in a medical malpractice case?

Unfortunately, preventable medical errors today represent the third leading cause of death in America.

When are drowsy driving accidents most likely?

Drowsy driving is very dangerous, and this risk factor is particularly concerning for various reasons.

When a driver falls asleep on the road or fails to drive properly because of their fatigue, they may cause a serious crash which claims an innocent life or results in devastating injuries. It is important for drivers to be aware of certain times when drowsy driving wrecks are especially common and watch out for other drivers who may be suffering from fatigue.

As Georgia highways and roads are updated and repaired, drivers must adjust their speed, habits and routes to accommodate workers. If drivers ignore work zones and their limits, the results can be tragic. According to the Georgia Department of Transportation, there were over 27,000 crashes in work zones in 2018 and since 1973, 60 road workers have lost their lives while on the job.
