a model of a human spineIn many accident cases, the people involved feel “fine” immediately afterward. A day or two later, they’re still stiff and sore. Sometime after that, they start experiencing significant pain. In those situations, many people worry that they cannot pursue a claim since they didn’t seem injured at the time of the accident. Fortunately, this is not the case – you can still pursue a claim even if your injuries were not immediately apparent. 

Delayed Injuries Are Very Common

Thanks to the safety features that are standard in modern vehicles, many people are able to literally walk away from a car accident. Unfortunately, this doesn’t necessarily mean that you weren’t injured. The tremendous forces exerted on your body in a car accident can result in serious injuries that aren’t always immediately apparent:

One of the most dangerous aspects of motorcycle riding is lack of protection. With the exception of their helmets, motorcycle operators and their passengers are directly exposed to the environment. If they fall from their motorcycles in an accident, serious injuries can occur.

Motorcycle operators and other motor vehicle drivers have a duty to operate their vehicles safely while on the road. When they fail to do so, they can cause accidents and serious injuries. If you have been injured in a Georgia motorcycle accident that you did not cause, let the experienced legal team at Slappey & Sadd, LLC assist you with your case today.

Types of Nursing Home Abuse and Neglect

An empty courtroom.If you are involved in a car accident in the State of Georgia, it is important to remember that the at-fault driver’s insurance company is never on your side. The insurance company’s main goal is to offer the lowest possible settlement amount that you will accept in order to resolve your car accident claim. When that settlement offer just isn’t enough, a personal injury attorney may recommend that you “roll the dice,” so to speak, and consider taking your chances at trial.

Trials have both advantages and disadvantages. When you let the experienced Georgia car accident lawyers at Slappey & Sadd, LLC handle your case, we can explain all of your legal options and recommend whether trial might be the best option for maximizing your recovery.

If you have been injured while working on the job and while working within the scope of your employment, you might be entitled to pursue various benefits for workers’ compensation from your employer. Work injuries can not only bring about high medical bills, but also pain, suffering, and inconvenience. In some instances, the work injury is so serious that the worker is forced to miss significant time from work — and in some cases, change professions altogether.

The Georgia work injury lawyers at Slappey & Sadd, LLC understand the inconvenience often

Visit Your Seniors Often

two surgeons in an operating roomThe Patient Right to Know Act was signed into law in Georgia in 2001. The purpose of the Act was to give Georgians the ability to find out whether their doctors have been sued for medical malpractice and been forced to pay any claims. However, the Act was later amended in 2011 to require that physicians disclose whether they have malpractice insurance to the Georgia State Medical Board. Last fall, it was reported that the Medical Board has been unable to update it’s databases to reflect this information, leaving Georgians in the dark.

The Role of Malpractice Insurance

In the event that their negligence leads to injury, the property owner may be held liable for failing to maintain their property in a safe condition. This is especially the case for business premises, where paying customers and patrons are entitled to a reasonable expectation of safety.

Inadequate Security

a man sitting on a motorcycleMotorcycles are becoming a more and more popular way to get around. They’re more fuel efficient, nimbler to maneuver, and are easier to park, but they also leave the bikers who ride them far more vulnerable to serious injuries. The fact is that nothing comes between the motorcyclist and the immense impact of an accident other than his or her helmet and safety gear, and that just isn’t enough when the accident is serious. Fortunately, there are 3 important safety strategies that can help you share the road more safely with motorcycles. If you’ve been injured by another motorist in a motorcycle accident, consult with an experienced personal injury attorney in the Atlanta area today. 

Strategy 1: Start Seeing Motorcycles

You’ve seen the bumper stickers stating, Start Seeing Motorcycles, but implementing this advice is the important bit. You know that you share the road with motorcycles, so make looking for them – and seeing them – part of your driving routine. Most importantly, don’t forget your vehicle’s blind spots. Many of us have become complacent about changing lanes after a quick peek in our mirrors, but motorcycles are so much smaller than other vehicles that they can remain hidden in one of your vehicle’s blind spots. Before changing lanes or merging, check all the way around your car and pay special attention to those blind spots.
