Caustic materials served in drinks and food

Georgia residents may be interested to learn that as many as 15,000 individuals accidentally ingest caustic materials, causing serious injuries, every year. Some of these accidents occur at restaurants after caustic materials are found in served drinks or even food. In fact, a patron was awarded $750,000 by an Atlantic County jury after he suffered chemical burns to his stomach and esophagus.

Apartment dwellers deserve a safe, secure home

Your home is your castle, even if it is a 900 square-foot walk-up. You may enjoy the community living apartment life brings, or perhaps it's all you can afford while you save to purchase a house. Either way, you certainly want to feel that your apartment is home, and feeling safe is a major part of that.

Practice prevention to reduce slip-and-fall hazards

Businesses in Georgia, especially restaurants, can take many preventative steps to reduce or eliminate slippery floors. A slip and fall by an employee or customer could produce costly liability and increase insurance premiums. The founder of the National Floor Safety Institute recommends that a business evaluate all flooring for hazards.

Bar and restaurant liability for assaults and DUIs

Georgia bar and restaurant owners owe duties of care to keep their customers safe. They also are responsible to prevent their patrons from drinking excessively at the establishments so that their customers do not cause drunk-driving accidents. If you have been injured in an accident with a drunk driver who was at a bar or restaurant, you may be able to file a lawsuit against the bar or restaurant owner.

Is your hotel staff trained to keep you safe?

If you travel often for work or pleasure, you may feel comfortable in a hotel environment. In fact, you may have favorite hotels that you visit frequently because of the staff, the amenities or the overall atmosphere. However, your comfort level in a hotel may be just the thing a predator is looking for to take advantage of you.
