Georgia residents may be familiar with the sort of stress that can arise during times of financial difficulty. Unfortunately, one person's troubles can lead them to behave in a careless manner that causes personal injury to an innocent person. Recently, one woman suffered after being hurt during the commission of a crime.
Scooters have become an increasingly popular way for people to travel. Especially in urban areas and college campuses, scooters can be rented, providing an affordable way for people to reach their destination, often saving riders time or a long walk. Georgia drivers in larger vehicles should always remain alert for people on foot, bikes or scooters, because when they don't, victims can suffer serious personal injury.
Georgia residents have a lot to look forward to in the coming weeks. As the holiday season approaches, people begin to anticipate the festivities that come at this time of the year. Family dinners, football games, gift exchanges and shopping excursions are some of the many activities to enjoy. Unfortunately, six families have a heavy burden to bear this year after a tragedy killed three innocent people and caused serious personal injury to three more.
A Georgia family recently found themselves living every parent's worst nightmare when not one but two of their children were seriously hurt. Certainly, parents do everything they can to keep their children safe, but on some occasions, circumstances beyond their parental reach can lead to personal injury. The negligent and careless actions of a stranger can cause an entire family to suffer when children are injured or killed.
Georgia is a hot spot for performers, and the music industry has set up a stronghold in the Peach State. Hip hop, particularly, has several world famous artists based in Atlanta and the surrounding area. One benefit of this is that concertgoers flock to Georgia from all across the nation, bringing a much needed boost to local business. Though attending a concert can be a fun way to enjoy music, it is becoming clear that the large crowds and loud atmosphere lead to a risk of personal injury.
Football season has returned to Georgia, and in a state that is known to be fanatic about the sport, fans flock to the stands to see competition from every skill level. Involvement in youth sports has long been touted as a good way for youths to make friends, learn discipline and stay out of troubles that often result from boredom. Though the game itself has adjusted to reduce the chance of personal injury for young players in recent years, not all gridiron injuries result from physical contact with other players.
Georgia residents, especially parents, appreciate the often overlooked job of the school crossing guard. Though children may only see their local crossing guard for a few moments each day, the crossing guard is an essential part of school safety. What may appear to be a simple job is actually quite stressful, and crossing guards risk their lives daily to prevent harm to children. A job that entails a human being stepping out onto busy roads to control traffic carries a serious risk of personal injury.
Georgia parents, especially those who are raising teenagers, may be familiar with the type of anxiety they feel when their children venture out with friends. Parents usually try to allow their teens a certain level of independence, and hope that their children make smart and safe decisions away from home. Unfortunately, there is always the risk that a teen can suffer personal injury as a result of unsafe behavior of another child.
