CONLEY, GEORGIA NEWS

“A worker suffered severe burns in an explosion while he was repairing a semitrailer in DeKalb County on Thursday morning,” AJC.com is reporting.  “The accident happened at the 4300 block of Old McDonough Road, in the southwest corner of DeKalb,” according to WSBTV.com.  “[A] worker was inside the trailer doing welding work when something ignited, causing a large fire, …[and t]he injured worker was taken to Grady Memorial Hospital with severe burns,” per the new outlet.

The fire remains under investigation according to the media reports.

OUR LEGAL TAKE

According to the Georgia workers’ compensation legal team at The Murray Law Firm, as the incident occurred in a workplace setting, the victim will almost certainly be entitled to significant compensation under the Workers’ Compensation laws of Georgia. Additionally, should an equipment malfunction have contributed to this tragedy, the victim may elect to pursue legal claims against the manufacturer.

Based upon its years of experience, The Murray Law Firm warns that employers and insurance companies are concerned with limiting their financial exposure; and, without the guidance of an experienced lawyer, the family’s interests may be jeopardized.

Cleveland, Georgia News

A head-on collision on US-129 in Cleveland, Georgia caused injuries Tuesday, February 12, 2019 according to media reports.

According to AccessWDUN.com, “[a] Clermont man suffered serious injuries in a two-car crash on Cleveland Highway [US-129] in White County Tuesday evening…[t]hree other people were also hurt.”  AccessWDUN.com is reporting that after a preliminary investigation by Georgia State Patrol “[GSP] determined a Toyota 4-Runner…was traveling southbound on Cleveland Highway, following the vehicle in front of him too closely…as [the 4-Runner] attempted to avoid the vehicle in front of him, he crossed into the northbound lane of traffic, hitting an oncoming Chevrolet Cruz head-on.”

The occupants in the 4-Runner “suffered minor injuries” and in the Chevrolet Cruz, 1 occupant “was seriously injured” and 1 occupant “was minorly injured,” according to GainesvilleTimes.com.  The news outlet indicates that “charges are pending at this time.”

Our Legal Take

As the details of this accident continue to develop, and depending on who is determined to be at fault, the victims may elect to seek justice and file a civil claim for their injuries. Based upon its extensive experience and success handling these types of motor vehicle claims in Georgia, The Murray Law Firm suggests that the victims should retain an experienced personal injury firm to protect their interests and ensure an unbiased investigation. As multiple injuries resulted from this accident, there will likely be competing claims for any available insurance proceeds.  Thus, it is imperative that legal representation is secured without delay.

North Augusta News

A Sunday afternoon bike ride turned into a hospital visit for a young boy in Augusta.  According to WRDW.com, “around 12:10 p.m. on Sunday, a 13-year-old boy was biking on 2nd Street and about to pull onto Duncan Road. A 2003 GMC SUV was driving south on Duncan Road when it hit the teen.”  Per the news outlets, “[t]he teen was transported to a local hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.”  The driver of the car was not injured.

It is unclear whether the driver will be facing charges.

Our Legal Take

As the details of this incident continue to develop, and if the motor vehicle driver is found to be at fault, the young victim’s parents may elect to file civil claims for his injuries.  Based upon its experience and success handling cycling and pedestrian claims in Georgia, The Murray Law Firm suggests that the parents should retain an experienced personal injury firm to protect his interests and ensure an unbiased investigation. Photographs of the roadways involved and a review of surveillance footage from nearby businesses or properties, if any exists, will need to be performed immediately before any evidence is damaged or destroyed.
