Establishing a duty of care in slip-and-fall lawsuits

When personal injury lawsuits are filed over slip-and-fall accidents in Georgia and around the country, duty of care arguments are usually made by both the plaintiffs and the defendants. Plaintiffs may claim that premises owners did not meet their duty of care because they did not take all reasonable steps to prevent the accident in question from occurring. Defendants could respond by arguing that accident victims did not meet their duty of care because they failed to take reasonable steps to avoid obvious dangers. When these arguments are not very persuasive, slip-and-fall cases may be settled before court proceedings begin.

The summer driving season is particularly dangerous for teens

Emergency rooms in Georgia and around the country were fully staffed over Memorial Day weekend in preparation for what is traditionally one of the busiest times of the year. The start of the summer driving season is marked by a surge in motor vehicle accidents, and many of them involve young and inexperienced drivers. Accidents involving teen drivers claimed the lives of more than 3,500 road users between 2013 and 2017 according to the American Automobile Association's Foundation for Traffic Safety, and a disproportionate number of them died in the 100 days between Memorial Day and Labor Day.

Experts worry about new car safety feature risks

Car buyers in Georgia and around the country have a vast range of new vehicles to choose from, and many of them come equipped with sophisticated safety technology that warns drivers of impending dangers or even takes control in emergencies to avoid a crash. While road safety advocacy groups have welcomed these new safety features, technology experts predict that they could make some kinds of accidents more likely because drivers do not yet fully understand them or know how they work.
