An employer's duty to prevent burn injuries on the job

Employers have a duty to prevent burn injuries on the job, just like they have a duty to protect their workers from suffering any other type of injury. When an employee suffers a burn injury, he or she might miss extended time at work and might not be able to return to work because of the severity of the injuries. Let's examine what employers must do for employees to prevent burn injuries.

Training is the first step employers need to take to prevent burn injuries. All new employees should be provided training on the chemical hazards present in the workplace and any other ways they can suffer burns on the job. Continued training should be offered to all employees each year as refresher courses.

Why it's important to have a real estate attorney at closing

Are you buying a home in Augusta, Georgia? If so, it's a good idea to have an experienced real estate attorney by your side during the closing. It might be an even better idea to have an attorney with you through the entire process of buying a home so you know what to look for and how to protect yourself as the buyer.

An attorney knows what to look for when reviewing the documents used at a home closing appointment. He or she will be able to find mistakes, illegal clauses, missing clauses and other items that need to be removed or added to the documents.

Cellphones only one type of driving distraction

When we hear the term distracted driving, we immediately think about mobile phones and GPS systems. But there are plenty of other ways a driver can be distracted when behind the wheel. We will examine those other causes of distracted driving, which can lead to serious motor vehicle accidents, in today's post.

Simply having a conversation with a passenger in your car can lead to distracted driving. This includes someone sitting up front with you or your children in the back seat. Limit conversation as much as possible in order to concentrate on driving.

Signs you are the victim of medical malpractice

Medical malpractice is a serious problem that affects millions of people every year. Even the most minor of mistakes made by a doctor, nurse, pharmacist or another medical professional can cause serious health problems. If you suspect you are the victim of medical malpractice, it's important to recognize the signs so you can receive compensation for your injuries.

Being prescribed or provided the wrong medication is a common sign you are the victim of medical malpractice. Pharmacists can make mistakes in the strength of the medication provided. Doctors can wind up prescribing the wrong medication for your condition. Nurses could administer the wrong medication to the wrong patient.

Appropriate remedies for your company after a breach of contract

Business contracts are some of the most important tools that Georgia companies have. These legal agreements protect the interests of two different parties, allowing them to have a full understanding of obligations and responsibilities. In many cases, they can prevent problems and lower the chance of a dispute between parties.

However, what happens in the event that the other party does not follow through with his or her end of the agreement? What if he or she does not abide by the terms of the contract? This is more than just a frustration or an inconvenience -- it is a threat to the financial and legal interests of your business. At this point, it may be appropriate to move forward with legal action or seek an enforceable out-of-court solution.

Crushing injuries caused by motor vehicle accidents

Motor vehicle accidents aren't always fender benders. A large number of accidents are on the more serious side, leaving drivers and passengers injured and out of work for an extended period. Some of the most tragic accidents can lead to crushing injuries, where the victim is either crushed by another vehicle or has a part of their body crushed. Let's examine some of the crushing injuries you can suffer in a motor vehicle accident in today's post.

The victim of a motor vehicle accident, depending on its severity, can suffer any of the following crushing injuries:

  • Crushed arms or legs
  • Crushed ribs
  • Crushed skull
  • Crushed hands or feet

How to prevent your child from suffering burn injuries

Having children is one of life's greatest blessings. It also increases your stress levels, causes you to worry a lot and even brings sadness. Children are curious and love to explore. Because of their curiosity, they will want to explore areas of your home and other places that they should not explore. Here are some tips for preventing your child from suffering burn injuries.

Check the electrical plugs and cords in your home to make sure they are not covered in dust or dirt and are not fraying. If so, clean them off or replace them. You should never use a cord or plug that is frayed.

Expansion of new industries come from and lead to legal changes

Do you ever wonder why people work steady jobs at a big company where their efforts might go unnoticed? Then you may not have considered all the risks of trying to make it on your own. After a year or two trying to run your own business, you may be happy to sacrifice some liberties for a paycheck and health benefits.

Georgia is a business-friendly state, but even well-meaning regulations can hobble business owners and managers. Innovating new products and expanding to new markets can run into limits that have yet to be reconciled with changes in laws, especially in new industries or areas.

Did a doctor's lack of quality care cause harm to your baby?

The birth of a new baby should be a time of excitement for your family. Instead of rejoicing and making plans for the future, however, it can be a time of grief and anger when you learn that your baby suffered injuries during the birth process. In many cases, birth injuries are the result of the negligent actions of a doctor or medical care provider.

If your child is a victim of a birth injury, you may want to know what's next for your family. It may be possible that you have grounds for a civil claim, but you may not be sure where to start with this. It's important to seek justice on behalf of your baby and to secure the financial support necessary to care for him or her well into the future, but you do not have to fight alone.

Georgia accident that killed 2 may have started with a DUI

If someone is climbing Brasstown Bald or riding fast watercraft off Little Tybee Island, he or she may think that driving around the Peach State is not the riskiest activity one could find. But the roads in Georgia can be treacherous, and some drivers end up liable for the injury and damage that they caused through recklessness or negligence.

Accidents that could not be avoided may turn out to be worse because of bad decisions made by drivers who come across them. An early morning accident that claimed two lives may result in criminal charges for the driver of a sedan that initiated a multivehicle accident on the Georgia section of Interstate 95.
