Common Causes of Truck Accidents

Published on Sep 19, 2016 at 7:13 pm in Personal Injury.

When a Truck Accident occurs, severe damage and injuries almost always happen. Because of the large size and weight of tractor trailers, when they become involved in a collision with another vehicle, the damages are extensive.

When such an accident takes place due to negligence, the injured party may have the legal right to pursue a lawsuit against the driver or trucking company.

Some of the most common reasons for tractor trailer crashes in Georgia include the following:

Driver Error

There are a lot of factors that may contribute to negligent driving and lead to a truck accident. Some of the most common driver errors include:

  • Driver Fatigue
  • Substance Abuse
  • Improper Training
  • Distractions, such as cell phones
  • Inattention while driving

Any of these factors have the potential to lead to unnecessary risks and the inability for the truck driver’s to react to the dangers on the roadways.

Published on Sep 12, 2016 at 7:17 pm in Nursing Home Abuse.

When someone you love is living in a nursing home, it is assumed that they are properly cared for. However, they may not be receiving the high level of care that they deserve. The sad reality is, Nursing Home Abuse is all too prevalent in today’s society.

There are a few different ways for an elderly person to be abused or neglected at a nursing home facility. Some of the most common forms of Nursing Home Abuse include:

Physical Abuse

This form of abuse is typically the most easily recognizable among nursing home residents. This is because of the obvious physical signs a resident may suffer or exhibit. Some common forms of physical abuse include:

  • Slapping
  • Kicking
  • Punching
  • Unnecessary use of restraints (straps or chains)

Any intentional infliction of physical harm that results in physical pain, bodily injury, or impairment may be considered physical abuse.

How to Protect Your Elderly Loved One From Nursing Home Abuse

Published on Jul 28, 2016 at 7:41 pm in Nursing Home Abuse.

Bey and Associates have decades of experience advocating and protecting individuals and families who have been affected by nursing home abuse in Georgia.

There are six million people above the age of 65 in the United States. Many of those people will require some form of assisted living as they age, which means they may be subjected to some form of abuse, whether it be physical and emotional.

If you have an elderly loved one in an assisted living or nursing home facility, take any signs of abuse very seriously. Do not ever write off signs of abuse as illness, dementia, or their overall frailty.

Caregivers will try to explain their physical or emotional abuse ailments as symptoms of their age, mental deterioration, or previous illnesses. You should never dismiss these signs because of a caregiver’s explanation. Also, be extremely wary if the caregiver often refuses to leave the elder alone in your care.

Do I Need An Attorney For My Motorcycle Accident Case?

Published on Jul 13, 2016 at 8:41 pm in Personal Injury.

Motorcycle Accidents are a common occurrence in Georgia, and unlike most other motor vehicle accidents, they have an increased potential to cause serious injury or even death.

Motorcyclists are not protected by any metal or glass exterior or restraints of any kind. Most bike crashes result in life-threatening injuries and may require extensive and expensive medical treatments, including,

  • Hospitalization
  • Surgery
  • Rehab/Physical Therapy

If you or someone you know has been involved in a Georgia motorcycle accident and have injuries that require any of the above treatment, you may not be able to work, which will result in lost wages in addition to your piling medical bills.

However, if the accident was not your fault, you may be able to file a claim against the negligent driver who caused the collision to receive your deserved compensation.  

If you have been involved in an Atlanta, Georgia motorcycle accident that was not your fault, hiring an experienced bike crash attorney is crucial for a variety of reasons.

Important Reasons to Hire a Motorcycle Injury Attorney

The most important reason to hire experienced representation for your bike accident injury case is that you will require a personal injury lawyer who is familiar with laws and regulations regarding motorcycle accidents.

The expert attorneys at Bey and Associates will assist you with things like,

  • Negotiating with the at-fault party’s insurance
