“Heartbreaking” is the only word that can come close to describing what happened in suburban Clayton County last month. According to a story in the Atlanta Journal Constitution, a woman and her two children were crossing Georgia 138 when her Honda Accord was T-boned by a semi truck. The woman survived with a leg injury, but the children—a five year old boy and a six year old girl—died at the scene. The cause of the car accident has not yet been determined, but a witness at the scene reported that the mother claimed that her brakes “went out.” Witnesses also say that both the mother and the truck’s driver were devastated.

According to a WSAV news report, The Georgia Department of Public Safety and the Georgia Port Authority are partnering to add 60 commercial vehicle enforcement officers. Officials hope the increase in activity will decrease the number of crashes along Georgia highways.

Father’s Day is drawing near, which means sons and daughters everywhere are scrambling to plan the perfect day for their fathers. Your dad, much like most other dads, isn’t giving you any hints as to what he wants to do. He says he’s fine with anything. But you don’t want to just give him “anything;” you want to show him how much you appreciate him for the sacrifices he has made out of love for you.

Supreme Court Ruling on ER Liability Case Matches Attorney Wayne Grant’s 2012 Prediction

By Grant Law Office on December 9, 2013

white Supreme Court pillars

In 2005, the Georgia General Assembly enacted a statute that distinguished emergency medical care liability cases from those involving other types of medical treatment. The statute that applies to emergency treatment lowers the standard of care for the care provider while increasing the burden of proof on a patient seeking to recover for negligent medical injury.

Claimants in cases involving emergency treatment must prove gross negligence in order to establish liability, a difficult feat. In addition, the burden of proof is also increased, requiring an emergency care claimant to prove his or her case by what is called “clear and convincing evidence.” In essence, the legislature has made it more difficult, much more difficult, to hold emergency care providers responsible for carelessly-caused injury or death.

Truck Law… Did you know?

By Grant Law Office on August 25, 2010

Wayne Grant – GA Personal Injury and Board Certified Medical Malpractice Attorney

Truck accidents: Did you know that federal regulations govern carrier’s responsibilities in hiring truck drivers? A trucking company that hires a driver that they should have recognized as incompetent at the time of application for employment can be held liable on a theory of ’negligent hiring’. Whether or not a trucking company was negligent in hiring or retaining a careless driver should be investigated in any serious case.
