Simple Car Seat Guidelines To Help Keep Your Children Safe

If you are a parent, you know the importance of keeping your children safe - especially when riding in a car. In Georgia, children eight years old and under must ride in an approved car seat that is suitable for their height and weight. They must also ride in the backseat, unless the backseat is occupied and then they can ride in the front seat so long as they are in an approved car seat. And any child over the age of 8 must wear a seatbelt.

Types of Auto Accident Claims In Georgia

Every year, millions of Americans are involved in some type of auto accident. According to statistics, the average driver will file a car insurance claim once every 18 years. This means that you are likely to be involved in a car accident at least three or four times in your lifetime.

Even A Mild Brain Injury Can Increase Your Chances Of Death Within Years After Your Accident

In a previous blog, I discussed what a traumatic brain injury is and the effects it can have on your life. But did you know that even a mild brain injury can have serious effects on your life. Studies have already proven that survivors of mild traumatic brain injuries are more likely to develop alcohol and drug addiction problems than those who did not suffer a brain injury. Similarly, brain injury survivors are more likely to be angry, irritable, explosive and aggressive in inappropriate situations.

The Advantages of Contingent Attorneys' Fees

You have probably heard of contingent attorney's fees, but do you know what that means? It means that your attorney is paid only if they recover money in your case, and they are paid proportionally to the amount recovered. This is different from paying your attorney an hourly rate. The percentage of your recovery paid to your lawyer is agreed upon beforehand, and your attorney will also be able to collect reimbursement for their out-of-pocket expenses.

GPS Devices Can Be A Fatal Distraction - Motorist Faces Involuntary Manslaughter Charges After Killing Georgia Motorcyclist When Following GPS Directions

Global Positioning Systems (GPS) used to be a thing for only NASA and the United States Military. Today, virtually everyone has GPS navigation technology in some form, whether it is built right into your car or smartphone. In fact, millions of Americans rely on their GPS daily to get from point A to point B.

Why Even Low-Impact Collisions Are Serious

Statistics show that it has probably happened, or will happen, to you at least once in your lifetime. You are driving your car or are the passenger in a vehicle driven by another, and you are side-swiped or bumped in the back (of the car) by another vehicle. Maybe the driver in front of you stopped abruptly and the car you are in taps the vehicle in front of you. These low-impact collisions or "fender benders" usually do not phase us, and we often do not report them because we know the damage is less than our car insurance deductible and we do not want our rates to increase.
