When your body is stopped mid-motion, like when it is flung forward in a car accident or during a tackle on the football field, your brain doesn’t stop moving until it has hit the inside of your skull. The impact can result in brain damage, and if this motion happens enough times it can result in degeneration, otherwise known as chronic traumatic encephalopathy (CTE). This degeneration can leave a person’s life in shambles and, since it can only be diagnosed during an autopsy, you may not even know you’re suffering from it.
It was less than two weeks ago that we announced the finalists to our 2020 Best Foot Forward Scholarship. Time really does fly! The incredible youthful men and women we selected were all in consideration to win a $1,000 scholarship to help them with their future endeavors. Choosing just one of our finalists to win the scholarship was a difficult process that involved several re-reads of essays and intense debates. But we at Grant Law Office are finally ready to announce our winner.
We at the Grant Law Office have spent the last few weeks poring over all of the extraordinary applications sent to us for the Best Foot Forward 2020 Scholarship since the application period closed on April 22nd, 2020. We were hoping to find out what got Georgia high school seniors and college students excited. What gets the Georgian youth out of bed every morning? With an incredible 341 applications sent to our firm, we think we’ve got a pretty good idea now!
We are sad to say that the Best Foot Forward 2020 Scholarship finalists announcement has been postponed. While we originally intended to reveal our batch of finalists on May 6th, we have made the difficult choice to push the decision back until May 13th. This is a hectic time for us, as we are sure it is for all of you.
You may be aware that medical practitioners don’t always live up to our expectations and that they make life-threatening mistakes. When these mistakes are egregious and horrific, they are often referred to as “never events.”
You are involved in a car accident, but you have insurance, so there’s nothing to worry about, right? Unfortunately, that might not be true: you could become a victim of “bad faith” insurance and have your claim unreasonably denied, delayed, or reduced. Insurance companies are experts at finding loopholes in their own policies and discovering new ways to justify denying, delaying, or reducing your claim.
A slip and fall accident can be embarrassing and painful – but there is the potential for a far worse outcome. A slip and fall can lead to serious or fatal injuries, particularly when the brain or spinal cord has been damaged. Falls can occur in the workplace, on a city sidewalk, in a retail setting, a concert venue, a nursing home, or virtually any location if the conditions are right.
