Can an Employer Fire an Employee Who is Injured on the Job?

In Georgia, an employer may fire an employee who is injured on the job without giving any other reason. In fact, they may also fire an employee for making a workers' compensation claim. However, such a dismissal will have certain consequences that may be in the injured worker's favor.

How an Accusation of 'Malingering' Can Harm Your Workplace Injury Claim

In a workers' compensation case, the defense will do everything it can to show the injured worker in a bad light. One of the most common ways of doing this is by labeling the worker a 'malingerer'.

Your Social Media Account May Be an Insurer's Best Friend

It seems like nearly everyone uses some form of social media these days, whether it's Facebook, twitter, Instagram, or LinkedIn. If you have been injured on the job or in an accident you may want to consider deactivating your accounts until your case is resolved. Insurance companies and defense attorneys may use information you post online against you during settlement negotiations or at trial. In fact, some companies even specialize in trawling social media accounts for information that may be damaging to an injured person's case.

Will Unpaid Medical Bills from an Accident Impact Your Credit?

Any serious accident involves uncertainty. Victims wonder if they will recover from their injuries, if they'll be able to go back to work, and if they'll receive enough compensation to cover their medical expenses and property damage.

The Auto Accident Report: How to Get it and Why You Need It

When speaking with your insurance company or another driver's insurance company following an accident, one of the first questions is usually, "What happened?". If the accident was serious, you may not have any memory at all of exactly how the accident occurred or what transpired in its aftermath. Even a relatively minor low speed crash is a traumatic experience which may make memory of it fuzzy at best. If law enforcement was called to the scene of the accident, the responding officers will have made an accident report based on their own findings, interviews with you and any other drivers involved, and statements of witnesses. This report can be a valuable record of the facts of the accident, and you may need to obtain it in order to negotiate effectively with an insurance company.

How to Avoid Aggressive Driving and Road Rage

Aggressive driving and road rage are two problems that make driving even more dangerous than normal. According to a study conducted by AAA, 80% of drivers see aggressive driving as a "serious" or "extremely serious" danger. With seemingly everyone in a hurry to keep up with their busy schedules, aggressive driving and road rage have become more widespread in recent years. Many drivers may not even be aware they are driving aggressively or experiencing road rage. Fortunately, awareness of the problem coupled with a few common sense adjustments can go a long way to reduce the numbers of aggressive and angry drivers on Georgia's roads.
