Road rash is a painful but common injury in motorcycle and bicycle accidents, occurring when a rider falls and slides across pavement or dirt. Even with protective gear, the skin can be scraped off, leaving the area raw, red, inflamed, and bleeding. As road rash breaks the protective barrier of the skin, it can also turn into a serious, or even life-threatening, infection.
After an accident, you may be mostly concerned with your obvious, external injuries. That’s understandable, as a nasty cut or broken bone is enough to make anyone panic. However, the real danger may lie in a wound that is practically invisible: internal bleeding.
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.
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.
Whiplash is a common injury in car accidents, particularly rear-end collisions. It gets its name from the whip-like motion of the head and neck when a vehicle is struck from behind, or in an accident that causes this rapid, forceful movement. Whiplash is a soft-tissue injury that causes damage to the muscles, tendons, and nerves of the neck. It can also cause damage to the spine.
When excessive force is applied to the body, crush injuries can occur. This can happen in car accidents, construction cave-ins, and various types of accidents and injuries. Crush injuries can have many complications and may be associated with internal organ rupture, major bone fractures, and hemorrhagic shock. Among the most serious potential complications of crush injuries is compartment syndrome.
You’ve seen their commercials on late-night TV, and had your view obstructed by their gaudy billboards. They promise you cash, and they promise it fast. We’re talking about “settlement mills,” lawyers and law firms that advertise aggressively and handle a high volume of cases at the same time.
Many people think getting a pedicure is a way to treat, or pamper, one’s self. This may be true, but manicures and pedicures apparently come with certain health risks.
Due to our tax incentives and a welcoming spirit, film and television is a growing industry in Georgia. Currently, there are 29 productions being filmed in the state. But, along with the glamour and revenue generated by film and TV production comes the very real danger of the reel industry.
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. To meet the season’s elevated demand for goods being shipped around the country and the world, many warehouses and distribution centers hire seasonal employees. This is good for the hire-ees, because many people need additional income around the holidays.
