When signing up for a new gym, joining in a dangerous sport, enrolling in a school, or even getting a new job, you may be faced with a liability waiver. Most people happily sign, assuming that they won’t get hurt anyway, so the waiver won’t have an impact on their life. However, after suffering an injury due to negligence, you may find yourself in a position where you are unsure of whether or not you can legally file a claim. Well, Grant Law Office may have the answer you are looking for.
When someone chooses to drink and then get behind the wheel, they are putting everyone on the road with them at risk. Sadly, many drivers still make these dangerous decisions and cause tragic accidents. However, legally they may not be the only party responsible for the inevitable accident. According to dram shop liability laws in Georgia, the bar, liquor store, or restaurant that served the drunk driver could also be considered liable.
When first learning to drive, we were all taught to obey all traffic laws, especially the speed limit. But as drivers get older and become more experienced, many choose to push against speed limits or brazenly break the limit altogether. But those speed limits are not just random, arbitrary numbers. They are designed to protect everyone on the road, as any high-speed collision could be absolutely devastating.
Rear-end collisions, sometimes known as “fender benders,” often get the reputation of not being that serious of an accident. T-bones, as in when a car collides with the side of another collision, or head-on accidents are seen as far more serious because they can put the occupants at the immediate risk of suffering a fatal injury. But the same can be said about rear-end collisions. They can be absolutely devastating and, due to their reputation as being mild accidents, the injuries caused by them may be overlooked.
You are making your daily commute, a drive you know like the back of your hand when suddenly a loud horn blares from behind you. You check your rearview mirror and there is a car driving so close behind you that you can make out the furious face of the driver. His teeth are gritted, his eyes are bulging, and you can see the veins on his head and neck pulsing. You have just come across an aggressive driver and have no idea what to do.
There is nothing more gut-wrenching than watching the person who just collided with your car speed away without even bothering to check if you were injured. That kind of carelessness and cruelty can have a severe impact on your life, especially if you are already in a difficult financial situation. Many of us live paycheck to paycheck, and when we are involved in an accident, we rely on the insurance provider of the at-fault driver to pay for our medical bills, time away from work, and damage done to our vehicle. So, what do you do when said at-fault driver flees the accident?
Our entire lives run off of electricity. From our phones to our computers to our microwaves, the human race would be lost without electricity. However, this power, while convenient, does come at a cost. Electricity is incredibly dangerous if not administered correctly. It can cause catastrophic injuries, fires, and even death. That is why we have written this article to warn you about common electrical risks in your home and explain when you can pursue a claim for compensation.
There was once a time when take-out and delivery were limited to a select handful of restaurants in your neighborhood. If you wanted to order out, chances are you would have to either get pizza or Chinese food. These days, however, it seems that nearly every restaurant, café, and bakery can be found through food delivery apps. While this technology makes ordering food simple and convenient on those nights that you just don’t want to cook, the new influx of delivery drivers is also dangerous.

Phantom pain is common after amputation. It involves pain in a limb or body part that is no longer there. For some amputees, phantom pain improves over time without treatment. For others, the pain continues. Victims may experience cramping, pins and needles, or stabbing, crushing, throbbing, or burning pain that feels as if it is located in the missing body part.
