How Your Misdiagnosis Could Actually Be Medical Malpractice

By Grant Law Office on January 26, 2021

When you feel sick or you are in pain, you naturally go to your doctor to find out what the problem is. A responsible doctor will run the necessary tests and look over your results before deciding on a diagnosis. Surprisingly, there are many doctors who base their diagnosis off a gut instinct, or on flimsy evidence, or outdated medical science. What is particularly dangerous about a misdiagnosis is that it can lead to lasting consequences.

Apartment Fires: The Common Causes

By Grant Law Office on January 4, 2021

In mid-December, an apartment building in DeKalb County caught fire. The blaze was enormous and more than enough to overwhelm the residents inside. They could hardly breathe and quickly found themselves trapped in their apartments, with no way out except the window. Residents were forced to jump, some of them from the third floor. Many suffered burns, broken bones, and spinal cord injuries. In the end, 18 people were injured in this one fire, including a pregnant woman, a 78-year-old grandmother, and several small children. However, everyone who jumped survived.

The cause of the fire? Still “under investigation.”

When Cargo Spills Turn Deadly

By Grant Law Office on January 2, 2021

The American economy relies on semi-trucks and their drivers. Without them, goods could not be efficiently transported from state to state. However, trucks can pose a serious danger while on the road. Tractor-trailers often weigh upwards of 80,000 pounds, meaning they can easily crush any obstacles in their path, including other vehicles. However, one of the most dangerous aspects of a truck is the cargo it carries. If that cargo spills, depending on what it is, it can cause catastrophic damage.

How to Spot a Drunk Driver

By Grant Law Office on December 26, 2020

Drunk drivers have been a menace on our roads since cars were first invented. In order to combat the danger of drunk drivers, Georgia laws have been passed limiting the legal blood alcohol content (BAC) of drivers to under .08%.

Sadly, not everyone follows the law, and when people get behind the wheel drunk, they can cause catastrophic damage. Knowing what a drunk driver looks like and how to properly respond to one can save your life.

Who Is Eligible for Wrongful Death Claims in Georgia?

By Grant Law Office on December 17, 2020

Losing a loved one is a difficult event to go through, especially if the loss was sudden, and even more so if it was caused by an act of negligence. Unfortunately, to add to the emotional trauma of losing a family member, many families are left in financial ruin, having to pay out thousands for funeral expenses and medical bills, on top of having to figure out how to make ends meet with one fewer breadwinner in the house. That is where a wrongful death claim comes in. These claims help families recover financially after the loss of a loved one, but not just anyone is allowed to file a wrongful death claim.

When That Boating Trip Turns Poisonous

By Grant Law Office on December 10, 2020

When people decide to spend the day on the water, very few consider carbon monoxide (CO) to be a potential danger. Most would assume that the real risk is drowning. However, CO poisoning on boats is a very real issue, and one that countess Georgians experience every year. Sadly, few are prepared to deal with the issue, and so many people suffer debilitating consequences, and even lose their lives to the deadly gas.

By Grant Law Office on November 4, 2020

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.

Well, Grant Law Office may have the answer you are looking for.

By Grant Law Office on October 28, 2020

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.

When Speeding Gets Out of Control

By Grant Law Office on October 21, 2020

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.
