What to do in a hit-and-run accident in Georgia

Do you know what to do if you get in a hit-and-run accident? The steps you need to take are similar to those for any other type of motor vehicle accident, so if you know those, then you are already mostly prepared. There are only a few differences you must be aware of to raise your chances of receiving the best financial outcome possible.

Car accident deaths on the rise in Georgia and across the nation

Car accident deaths have been rising across the U.S., including in Georgia, according to new data from the National Safety Council. There were 1,540 reported deaths caused by motor vehicle accidents in Georgia last year, a 10 percent increase from 2015.

Young drivers take most road risks

Young drivers take the most risks in Georgia and across the United States, according to astudy by the AAA Foundation for Traffic Safety. However, the study found that drivers in other age groups are also guilty of dangerous behind-the-wheel behaviors.

Medical conditions linked to increased truck accident risk

Most Georgia residents know that the road to good health is paved with regular exercise and sound nutrition, but following a healthy lifestyle can be difficult for commercial truck drivers who spend eight or more hours behind the wheel each day. Heart disease and diabetes are among the leading causes of death in the United States, and researchers from the University Of Utah School Of Medicine say that suffering from these and other conditions can make truck drivers far more likely to be involved in accidents.

Trump memorandum delays truck driver training rule

Georgia residents may be interested to learn that the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration published a notice on Feb. 1 that delayed a rule regarding the establishment of truck driver training standards. The rule, which was supposed to take effect on Feb. 6, was delayed by a memorandum from the Trump administration that was issued on Jan. 20.
