happy-mothers-day-g141e01ca1_1280-300x195As a parent, one of the most difficult decisions you will have to make is choosing the right day care for your child. You want to ensure that your child is safe, happy, and well-cared for while you are at work. Unfortunately, day care abuse is a reality that many parents must face.

If you suspect that your child is being abused at day care, it is important to take action immediately. Here are some signs that may indicate day care abuse:

Physical Injuries

FEATURED-safetymoment-driving-wet-weather-300x150According to the U.S. Department of Transportation, 75% of weather-related auto wrecks happen on wet roadways with 47% of crashes occurring while it’s raining. Those percentages translate to 544,700 annual injuries on wet roads and 357,300 annual car crash injuries whenever  it rains.

Also, more than 50% of auto fatalities are flood-related.

Tips to Keep You Safe When Driving in the Rain

Since that time, three major phases have evolved in modern product liability law. These phases involved the omission of caveat emptor, an erosion of the doctrine of privity, and the emergence of strict tort product liability claims in lawsuits.

Caveat Emptor

Blooming Magnolia TreesSpring in Atlanta is a beautiful time of the year, with flowers blooming, warmer temperatures, and longer days. However, the season also brings with it a unique set of risks that can lead to accidents and injuries. In this article, we’ll discuss some of the most common springtime accidents in Atlanta and provide tips on how to stay safe.

Car Accidents

As the weather warms up and the days get longer, more people hit the road for various activities. This increase in traffic, combined with the fact that springtime often sees an increase in rain, can lead to a higher risk of car accidents. Wet roads and poor visibility due to heavy rain can make driving conditions challenging, leading to an increased likelihood of collisions.


Georgia follows a modified comparative negligence law for personal injury claims. The state awards settlements to personal injury claimants as long as the other party is primarily at fault.

For example, if you’re shown to be 49% at fault, you can still recover money. You just can’t share fault equally with the other party. That is why you need to be able to refute some of the arguments the other side may make.

Why Making a Strong Case for a Tort Claim Is Important

do-i-have-to-use-the-auto-insurance-companies-body-shop-300x200When you get into an accident, it’s only natural to want more than just a quick fix. You want to be paid for any pain and suffering caused by the accident, your lost wages, any physical injuries you may have suffered, and so on. The good news is that if the other driver was at fault in the accident and their insurance company is not offering enough compensation, you can file a personal injury lawsuit against them instead. However, that doesn’t mean they’ll take care of everything for you.

While insurance companies may want to resolve these cases quickly and fairly, real life is not always like the movies. If you are faced with a situation where your personal injury case could go to trial, you should seek experienced legal counsel. An experienced attorney can advise you of your rights and guide you through the process so that you receive full compensation from the insurance company.

Georgia Car Insurance Laws

personal-injury-540x300-1-300x167When you have been injured in any manner—physically, financially, or psychologically—as the result of someone else’s negligence, you may be entitled to monetary compensation by filing a personal injury claim. But to determine how much compensation is worth your time, effort, and money to pursue a claim, it’s essential to know what kinds of personal injury claims exist. Below are some of the following:

Auto Accidents

Motor vehicle accidents are one of the major causes of injuries in the United States, with millions of people injured every year. The drivers involved may be at fault for speeding, failing to yield right-of-way, driving while intoxicated or under the influence of drugs or alcohol, speeding, texting behind the wheel, etc. Some common types of motor vehicle accidents include rear-end collisions, side-impact accidents, rollover crashes, and T-bone accidents, resulting in severe injuries such as broken bones, internal organ damage, spinal cord injuries, traumatic brain injury and more.

For example, product defects can quickly turn a holiday gathering into a true disappointment. Not only can a defect lead to serious harm, it’s something you need to address ASAP.

When things do not go as  planned, you need to know how to cope with the situation. In this case, it helps to consult with a lawyer.

And injuries from fall accidents can range from sprains to broken bones to concussions. While some people may brush off these incidents as minor and not worth seeking medical attention, it can be highly dangerous to do so. In fact, it is vital to seek medical attention after a slip and fall for several reasons.

Injury Documentation

A trip to the emergency room after a slip & fall provides documentation of your injury, which is crucial in building a solid personal injury case. Medical examinations typically include X-rays, lab tests and other diagnostic evaluations that can be used as evidence in court to prove the extent of your injuries. This documentation will also help your doctor determine whether or not certain treatments or surgeries are necessary to address your injuries. Without a professional examination documenting your injuries, it could be challenging to prove that you were injured in the fall and that it wasn’t just something that would have happened anyway.

And the worst part is you may have no idea where to start seeking compensation for all the costs associated with your injury. A personal injury attorney can help you regain financial footing after an accident.

However, choosing an Atlanta car accident lawyer is more complicated than reviewing their credentials and rates. To help you get started, here are some tips on how to choose the right attorney for your case:
