NTSB calls for tougher speeding laws

Excessive speed is a factor in almost a third of all motor vehicle accidents around the country according to figures from the National Transportation Safety Board, and the federal safety watchdog has called on the nation's lawmakers to treat motorists in Georgia and the rest of the U.S. who ignore posted speed limits as seriously as they do drunk drivers. A study of accident data collected between 2005 and 2014 reveals that crashes involving excessive speed claimed 112,580 lives on America's roads.

Why is the NSC calling for a ban on cellphones and driving?

Almost everyone owns a cellphone these days, and a large number of people use them while driving. Cellphone use, including texting, sending or receiving emails and visiting a social media site, is an activity that requires attention that should be only on the road ahead.

Deadlines for reporting accidents and filing lawsuits

Thousands of car accidents happen in Georgia every year. Motorists who are involved sometimes wonder if they need to report them to their insurance companies and when they must report their accidents to the police. Timing issues for reporting accidents are important, and people should make certain to follow the rules.

Litigating car accident cases involving ride sharing companies

Georgia residents are likely aware that the ride sharing services offered by companies like Uber and Lyft have become extremely popular in recent years, but they may not know that the way in which these businesses are structured could make pursuing car accident lawsuits more difficult. Taxi companies usually own their vehicles and employ their drivers, but the individuals who answer ride sharing calls drive their personal cars and are considered independent contractors.
