Helping car accident victims seek compensation

We read about them in the news, we drive by them in our vehicles and we may even know some one that has been in one. An automobile collision may seem like an every day thing that happens to other people, but the reality is that any driver is at risk of being involved in a car accident. Thus, when a person's world is turned upside down when a sudden car accident occurs, it is important that the victim wraps his or her head around the situation.

OSHA violations and workplace accidents

Even when all precautions are taken and all safety rules are followed, workplace accidents can still occur. However, some workplace incidents happen because safety regulations are not complied with. When an employer fails to uphold these regulations, this not only means that they will face penalties for their violations, but it also means workers could be harmed by this negligence.

Victim in critical condition following head-on crash in Georgia

Driving a motor vehicle might seem like a routine activity. For some, it could feel almost monotonous, as it occurs on a daily basis. Despite these feelings, driving is a privilege that comes with major responsibilities. Due to a vehicles size, weight and ability to travel at high speeds, it can be a deadly device. Thus, motorists are required to follow the rules of the road and drive safely. Whether it is traveling hundreds of miles on a long stretch of road, in a major city, residential area or on the highway, drivers are required to remain attentive no matter their speed or maneuver. Failing to do so could result in a serious automobile collision.

How can workers address lost wages because of a disability?

It is not uncommon to suffer minor injuries and illnesses. We all get a cold from time to time, and we all suffer a stubbed toe or hurt limb from bumping into things. These minor injuries are almost expected in the home and work environment. However, they require little to no recovery time and likely do not impact a person's ability to work on a larger scale. On the other hand, a major illness or injury could significantly impact a person's ability to work, as this situation likely makes it difficult to care for him or herself in general. Thus, it is important to explore what options are available in matters where individuals are unable to work because of a serious illness or injury.

Understanding repetitive motion injuries in the workplace

Georgians take on various types of employment. In some work environments, employees are tasked with doing the same or similar activities repetitively. Over time, carrying out these tasks over and over again could cause damage to the body, resulting in a workplace injury.

Helping protect one's rights to workers' comp benefits

There are many expectations for the work environment in Georgia and elsewhere. One imagines that he or she, as well as their colleagues, will carry out the work tasks assigned to them. One thing an employee is not prepared for at the workplace is a work injury or illness to occur. Even when an employee is working within an industry that causes employees to be exposed to various risks, hazards and dangers, it can still be shocking for an employee to suffer great harms because of a workplace accident.

What is an employer responsible for following a workplace injury?

When we go to work, we have certain expectations about our day and time in the work environment. For starters, we expect our day to be filled with work tasks. We also expect that we are safe in the workplace. Whether it is an office building, factory or construction site, employees are a certain expectation when it comes to their health and safety. When this falls short, an unexpected accident could occur, injuring an employee.

Heat-related conditions can be fatal for some workers

Workers who are out in the heat have to be careful that they don't fall victim to heat stroke or exhaustion. There are many different professions that require workers to do their job duties in the heat. Some factories, such as those that produce glass, might be very hot. Jobs that are outside, such as construction work or farm work, can also leave people out in the heat.
