Due to its strategic location, Atlanta is a major hub of commerce. This is particularly evident around the holidays, when companies like UPS (headquartered in Atlanta) are abuzz with activity.

Who Is to Blame in a Car Accident?

By Grant Law Office on August 20, 2017 - Comments off

What’s “The July Effect”?

By Grant Law Office on July 2, 2017 - Comments off


Medical students take their first steps as interns each July, by beginning work at teaching hospitals all across the country. As with many other cities, Atlanta, Georgia, has a number of these institutions. Interns at teaching hospitals have very little experience in diagnosing and treating the illnesses and injuries of their new patients. This has become the basis of a long-standing joke among professionals in the medical field. “Don’t get sick in July,” you may hear a seasoned doctor say in good humor, but are there serious threats to patients being treated by inexperienced medical interns?
