It is estimated that nine out of every ten serious car crashes in the United States are caused by human error. Can automated safety features in vehicles help prevent these accidents? Statistically, the answer is yes. However, we cannot rely on technology to do all the work for us. As more and more semi-autonomous vehicles find their way onto our roadways, some people will take that as an excuse to neglect the act of driving and pay less attention.
While modern automobiles are much safer than their predecessors, the act of getting into a car is still the most dangerous thing many of us do on a given day. Advances in design; the development of lighter, stronger metals; and safety features like airbags and shoulder harnesses make the likelihood of surviving a collision greater today than 20 years ago. Still, thousands of Americans are killed or catastrophically injured in motor vehicle accidents every year.

Last year, an overwhelming 5,000+ applicants sent in their information to our Best Foot Forward Scholarship, and as exciting as that was, it also exhausted our office staff. Reading through all those essays was time-consuming, although we read many, many good pieces. So for 2019, we narrowed our focus to our home state of Georgia: only students planning to go to school here (or already enrolled!) were eligible to apply. We received many good entries, and now, we’re ready to name names. Who’s still in the race for $1,000?

Medical mistakes are killing Americans by the thousands. Errors in diagnosis, medication, and surgery, faulty medical devices, and poor sanitation, leading to hospital-acquired infections, are largely to blame. As patients, we need to be aware. As lawyers, we need to fight bad practices and carelessness wherever we find them. Have you been harmed by healthcare? Have a look at the numbers below.
Research and analysis conducted by CRICO Strategies, which insures all Harvard medical institutions and their affiliates, has shown that miscommunication is a leading cause of medical malpractice claims.
