Future income loss calculations in wrongful death cases

One aspect of wrongful death cases in Georgia courtrooms is valuing how much income the decedents might have earned over their lifetime if they had lived. Plaintiffs may request certain amounts, and insurance companies may offer much less based on the victim's gender or race. This is an unfortunate part of the legal system that should be addressed.

Liability for injuries to household guests

When Georgia residents are injured while on another person's property, they may be able to recover compensation through the property owner's homeowner's insurance policy. Most homeowners' policies provide liability coverage for injuries depending on why person was on the property.

Staying safe at theme parks

Rides at carnivals and other amusement parks in Georgia and around the country are currently regulated at the state level. This is because of a budget deal created by Congress in 1981 that effectively stripped the Consumer Product Safety Commission of its ability to do the job. While there were efforts to reverse the effects of that deal, lobbying by the International Association of Amusement Parks and Attractions has helped to prevent federal oversight.

Issues regarding landlords, tenants and firearm laws

With the fact that gun laws are constantly changing, some of which allow people to freely exercise their open-carry rights, Georgia landlords and their tenants might be wondering about liability issues if a gun-related accident or other incident occurs on their property. Many states allow gun owners the right to openly carry their gun so it can be clearly seen by anyone. While a person is legally allowed to carry concealed firearms in all states and the District of Columbia, several states do not allow open carry of a firearm in any way.
