Boating season will soon be ramping up all around Georgia and in its surrounding lakes.  To make sure your safe while enjoying one of the most popular activities in the area, you should know that your personal flotation device, more commonly known as your, is possibly the most important piece of safety equipment that you could wear on a boat. Therefore, it should be clear why it is of the upmost importance that you know how to use this equipment so that it can keep you safe in case of any accidents.

The life jacket, also called a life preserver, life vest or life belt, is intended to keep you afloat in the water and prevent drowning. Wearing a life jacket can mean the difference between life and death even for an experienced swimmer or boater.

Not all personal flotation devices are manufactured equally. It’s important to look for certain safety features that have been proven to keep a person safe in the water.

Truck drivers have a significantly higher risk of developing diabetes.  This can make operating such a massive vehicle even more dangerous for not only the driver, but for other drivers on the road as well.   In Georgia and the Atlanta area, where the interstates are usually packed with tractor-trailers, truck drivers driving with unmanaged diabetes can increase the risks of accidents with other drivers.

According to recent studies, truck drivers have a risk of developing diabetes that is as much as 50 percent higher than the general population.  This is due in part to the long hours truck drivers are required to log, inconsistent eating schedules, lack of regular exercise and oftentimes unhealthy food choices.

Management of diabetes symptoms can be very difficult when you are a trucker. For one thing, diabetes is a difficult disease to live with, and there is no complete cure for the condition. The only way to ensure that you continue to live a happy and healthy life with diabetes is to manage the symptoms consistently.   However, truck drivers typically drive long hours without a break. Working such long hours can mean that a truck driver is less likely to take his medication on time every day. Failure to take medications on time can cause a catastrophic increase in sugar levels, making driving an extremely hazardous activity. In addition, the food options that are typically available to a truck driver often include greasy foods or foods that are high in sugar making management of symptoms even harder.

The metro-Atlanta area has experienced consistent growth for the past several years and only continues to do so.  With it brings construction and construction jobs, both residential and commercial, all throughout the state.  If a construction worker is injured on the job, he most likely knows that he can file a workers’ compensation claim with his employer to get compensation for his injuries.  However, there are other avenues of compensation recovery that are beyond the scope of workers’ compensation. These are called third-party claims, and they are often filed in the case of certain types of accidents or injuries.

A third-party claim allows you to hold other parties besides your employer responsible for your injuries after a construction accident. A construction site is often susceptible to such claims since multiple employers have their own employees working on the site.  There are typically several types of contractors that are performing work at a construction site, and all of them bring with them their own employees, equipment, material and so on.

Say, for example, your accident was caused by equipment or debris left lying around by the employee of another subcontractor at the same site. In a case like this, you can file a workers’ compensation claim with your employer.  You can also file an injury claim against the subcontractor whose worker’s negligence caused your injuries. These claims are filed as personal injury claims, and are separate from your workers’ compensation claims.

There may come a time for many of us when we need to think about caring for our elderly loved ones.  Georgia residents who want to place their loved ones in nursing homes need to be sure to do their due diligence to find facilities that meet acceptable quality standards.  This is especially so since, according to federal ratings, the Georgia’s nursing homes rank poorly on care indices.

The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services has developed a ranking based on three care parameters. Georgia nursing homes were placed on the bottom of the list for their care standards.

The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services rating was based on how facilities performed on three parameters – health inspections (evaluating the number and scope of defects found in the last two inspections), staffing measures, and quality measures. Staffing rankings were determined based on the number of resident nurses per resident per day, and the total staffing per resident per day. Quality ratings were determined on the basis of 16 quality measures.

The Trump administration’s efforts to relax federal regulations could impact the ability of nursing home residents across the United States to hold the facility responsible for abuse or neglect.

President Trump has issued an executive order that requires federal agencies to relax regulatory expenses. This action could result in CMS (Center for Medicare and Medicaid Services) rescinding an Obama era rule that makes it easier for residents of nursing homes to sue these facilities in cases involving abuse and neglect. In September 2016, the Obama administration banned arbitration agreements that residents were required to sign before admission into nursing homes. That move came in response to the need for greater protection of the rights of elderly residents of nursing homes. The rule was challenged in court by nursing homes, and a trial is still pending.

The Trump administration proposes to require that all residents sign an arbitration agreement upon admission to the nursing home which would eliminate their right to sue the nursing home in case of abuse or neglect, and would impose neutral arbitration as the only means of dispute resolution. A typical arbitration agreement will inform the resident that signing the agreement removes his right to legal recourse via a trial by jury or court trial.  It would also work to establish that any dispute will be resolved through a process of arbitration.

Driving safety is a matter of concern for parents of most teens, and especially so for the parents of a teenager diagnosed with Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD). A new study finds that teenagers who suffer from ADHD are more likely than their peers to be involved in a motor vehicle collision.

After acquiring a driver’s license, a teen with ADHD has a risk of having a car accident that is 36% higher than non-ADHD teens who have recently been licensed.  The crash risk is the same for both boys as well as girls with ADHD. The study is not all doom and gloom, however. The same study finds that the accident risk for teens with ADHD is actually much lower than earlier studies have found.

Researchers believe that medication significantly reduces the risk that a teen with ADHD will meet with an accident.  At the time of the study, only 12 percent of teenagers were on any kind of ADHD medication.

August marks the 20th anniversary of the tragic death of Princess Diana. What many people are not aware of, however, is how Di’s tragic death in a Paris tunnel in 1997 significantly changed the driving landscape in France, and made roads in that country safer for all motorists.

After the accident in a Paris tunnel in 1997, French investigators came to the conclusion that the accident was the result of unsafe and dangerous driving practices. In 2002, the French government signed a number of new laws that were specifically designed to help reduce the incidence of unsafe driving. As a result of those laws, traffic accident fatalities in the country actually dropped by as much as one-third.

In the new study, researchers claim that France’s decision to enact traffic safety laws in the aftermath of the tragic and high-profile death significantly improved traffic safety in that country, and may have helped save many lives. In fact, the study suggests that thousands of French lives could have been saved as a result of legislative changes that were enacted. In fact, French road fatalities in the decades after the fatal crash fell by as much as 30% on average, compared with an average of 15% in the United States.

Pedestrians have never been more unsafe on the streets of Georgia. According to reports, there was a alarming spike in the number of pedestrian accident fatalities reported last year.

In 2016, there was an increase of 21% in pedestrian accident fatalities across Georgia, compared to the previous year. These statistics come from a study by the Governors Highway Safety Association, which also found that pedestrian traffic fatalities had spiked across 34 states in the U.S. Overall, there was an 11% increase in the number of pedestrian accident fatalities across the U.S. in 2016, compared to 2015.

The picture was markedly worse in Georgia. Between January and June 2016, there were 109 pedestrian fatalities across the state, compared to 90 fatalities during the same period of time in 2015.

Car accident fatality rates are often linked to the state of the economy. As the US economy improves, experts are already identifying a perceptible increase in the number of people being killed in accidents.

The logic linking a higher risk of accidents to an improved economy is fairly simple. When the economy is good, people tend to drive more, and more numbers of vehicle miles traveled simply translates into a higher risk of accidents.  With more vehicles on the road there is a much higher risk of collisions.

It is not just the higher number of people on the roads that increases crash risks, however. It’s also the fact that people tend to drive more for recreational purposes when the economy is doing great. For instance, people are likely to travel more on holiday or go out for dinner in a good economy, compared to a distressed economy. Interestingly enough, people are also likely to drive faster when the economy is good.
