Crash victims often have delayed injury symptoms

The understandable desire for anyone involved in a car wreck is to get back to normal as soon as possible. Unfortunately for many Georgia crash victims, the process takes longer than for others. Identifying and understanding the full extent of damages is a critical component of settling insurance claims after an accident. Significant injuries often come from what initially appear to be minor fender benders, and getting the proper diagnosis helps prevent crash victims from being short-changed in their insurance settlements.

What to know about soft tissue injuries

Georgia drivers know that all sorts of injuries can arise from a car accident. However, some of the most frequent ailments are soft tissue injuries. Soft tissue refers to the muscles, tendons and ligaments that can be strained, sprained, torn or bruised from the impact of a collision. Unlike injuries to hard tissue like bones and cartilage, soft tissue injuries are difficult to detect on X-rays and thus challenging to diagnose.

Attempts to cut truck driver fatigue face legal challenge

For drivers on the roads in Georgia, accidents caused by truck driver fatigue can be a major highway safety concern. The large mass and size of 18-wheelers and semi-trucks mean that a trucking accident can easily cause severe injuries, major property damage and even death. One significant cause of fatigue in truck drivers is sleep apnea, a disorder that prevents sufferers from receiving a full night's sleep without treatment due to interrupted breathing.

Injuries and unsafe buildings

Georgia residents can incur an injury due to an unsafe building at any time. This occurs more often than they may like to think, and it is important that they know what actions to take afterwards. If someone sustains an injury on another person's property, premises liability law may be applicable. The owner of the building in question, whether it is an individual, a private business or public entity, may be liable.

State governors aim to cut down on highway fatalities

Roadway safety is a major issue of concern for drivers in Georgia and across the country. Car accidents can be the cause of extensive property damage, severe personal injuries and even deaths. A report published by the National Governors Association aims to provide guidance and suggestions to state governors about actions that they can implement to help reduce the growing rate of auto crashes and related fatalities. By coordinating efforts between a number of state government agencies, governors could achieve greater success and efficiency.
