In addition to doctors, nurses are also capable of causing medical malpractice. Nurses are charged with important duties such as administering medications and monitoring patients' conditions and failure to perform these tasks efficiently can lead to serious injury or even death. In addition, they use equipment for tests and to check vital signs. If injury to a patient should occur due to misuse of the equipment, that is also grounds for a nursing malpractice claim.
A brain injury is one of the most serious types of injuries you can get. Any time there is trauma to the head, there is the potential for brain damage. Brain damage side effects include the change is sleeping patterns, loss of short term memory, paralysis, loss of taste or smell, coma and other very serious problem that are usually permanent. A brain injury can be caused by any accident such as a car wreck, a trip and fall or medical malpractice.
If a loved one loses their life because of medical malpractice or an injury that was easily avoidable, it may be considered a wrongful death. You and your family may be entitled to financial compensation for funeral expenses, lost wages of the deceased, pain and suffering and medical bills.
Leaving in a loved one in the care of a nursing home is never easy. You want them to be cared in every way. Sadly, this is not always the case. When the elderly are abused and neglected by nursing home staff they can suffer depression, dehydration, malnutrition, falls, bed sores, and much worse including death. When left unsupervised, seniors may attempt to walk to the bathroom or do other tasks unassisted that can lead them to fall and severely injure themselves.
Bed sores are also known as pressure ulcers and they occur when a patient is left unattended in their bed for too long. This can happen on a hospital, nursing home or other type of care facility where the patient is unable to reposition themselves. Bed sores can be very serious and have the potential to lead to surgery and amputation.
If a product is dangerous and causes serious injury or death, often it may have been avoided. with better manufacturing. If the company responsible for the product was negligent in some way whiling designed or creating the product, you may have a claim against them. There are several different ways to show a company was negligent with their product.
When a product is designed, manufactured, labeled or marketed so that it is unreasonably dangerous it is referred to as a defective product. Defective products may lead to the company producing them to be liable for the injuries.
Car defects are unfortunately one of the most dangerous defects that you can come across. If your car fails when you are driving at high speeds, there is often little you can do to protect yourself. If you or a loved one have been injured in an accident caused by a defect in your car, there is information you need to know.
In order to avoid lawsuits, the makers of a defective product will often issue a recall on it once they recognize that there is a problem. Sadly, this can come to their attention once someone has already been injured or killed by their dangerous product. Just because a product has been recalled does not mean you are not entitled to compensation.
If you have developed a medical condition or gotten sick from defective medicine or drugs that were not properly tested before being put on the market, the drug companies should be responsible for your injuries. If you or your child has been effected by a recalled drug, even an over the counter drug, you need to know your rights.
Every year in Georgia, people are injured or killed in lawnmower accidents that could have been avoided with a better lawnmower design. Lawnmowers, especially riding mowers, are prone to tipping over and exposing their sharp blades underneath. There are many safety precautions that can be added to lawnmowers, but often the manufacturers neglect doing this to save money.

The area of Georgia law that applies to people injured on other's property is called premises liability law. This law means that property owners and landlords have an obligation to keep visitors safe from unnecessary dangers. This applies to stores and apartments as well as homes and public areas.
If you are in a store, apartment complex or any other public space and the owners or employees fail to clean up hazards that could cause people to slip and injure themselves, any injury that occurs is considered a slip and fall under premises liability laws. Slip and falls can happen anywhere and can lead to serious and long term injuries.
A trip and fall is the same as a slip and fall only it involves tripping over a hazard instead of slipping on it. This applies to any object that is left sticking out into a traffic area or curbs or steps that are not painted so they are easy to notice.
Objects that are attractive to children like swimming pools and playground equipment need to have extra security to keep them from getting into it. Pools are drowning dangers and old playgrounds can have sharp rusted edges and steep falls. It is reasonable to assume children would be attracted to these sorts of dangerous things so the owner's must do their best to keep children away.
Any type of accident at a store can lead to serious injury. If you are injured at a retail establishment, you should speak with a lawyer right away. Stores do not want to admit they were negligent in any way so it is important to get a Georgia personal injury lawyer to fight for your rights
Georgia apartment complex owners have a responsibility to keep the premises safe for tenants and their guests. This means that stairwells should be well lit and swimming pools should be locked up. They are also responsible for your safety when security guards are on duty. If you are attacked and injured because of negligent security staff, this is the fault of the complex management.
If you are a guest at someone's house for any reason, they are liable for your injuries. Poorly built or old decks can collapse and they tend to do this when there is extra weight i.e. a party or large gathering. Injuries from a deck collapse can be serious.
Swimming pools are dangerous for a number of reasons. In addition to the obvious risk of drowning when swimming unattended, pools with broken drains and filters can trap swimmers and hold them under water leading to death or brain damage.
Traffic accidents are one of the most common causes of personal injury in Georgia. It doesn't matter if it was a car wreck, bus accident or truck crash, the responsible party should pay for your injuries. The same applies if you were a pedestrian or on a motorcycle or bicycle and were hit.

If the other driver was responsible for the car crash, speak to a GA car wreck attorney to find out about getting compensation.
Motorcycles can be great fun and exciting to ride, but they can also be dangerous.

If you are injured, a GA motorcycle accident lawyer can help you get justice. When you ride your motorcycle, you also have to rely on other drivers to watch out for you and respect your space. Accidents involving motorcycles are almost always more serious for the motorcyclist regardless of who was at fault.
