Atlanta Police Officer Injured in Three Car Crash
Brunswick, GA (Law Firm Newswire) August 7, 2012 - A three-vehicle collision in Fulton County injured three people, including a police officer, in late July.
The accident took place near Cascade and Fairburn Road at about 5 p.m. (This area is near Cascade Corners and Mangum Manor.) The officer was driving a police cruiser going west on Cascade Road when he hit the side of a BMW sedan that was headed south on Fairburn.
The impact caused the patrol car to catch on fire with the officer trapped inside. He was removed from the car by rescue crews and transported to Grady Memorial Hospital with serious injuries.
The impact caused the driver of the BMW to hit a Chevrolet Impala stopped at a light on Cascade Road. The woman driving the BMW also was extricated from her vehicle by rescue crews and taken to Atlanta Medical Center. The woman in the Impala was also taken to Grady Memorial with non life-threatening injuries.
The cause of the accident is has not been determined. The Fulton Country Police Department is investigating the incident.
According to the State of Georgia, there were more than six million people (some motorists and some pedestrians) involved in auto accidents on state roads between 2000 to 2006. During that same time period, over 11,000 people lost their lives in auto accidents in the state. About 75 percent of fatal crashes took place on two-way roads that did not have any barriers between the lanes.
“Multiple car accidents can be difficult to sort out in terms of the legal implications,” said Georgia auto accident attorney Nathan Williams. “It is best to work with a knowledgeable legal professional in these matters.”

- $1,500,000 Jury Verdict in a Case Against a Hotel
My firm, along with attorney Chris Stewart and Eugene Felton, recently received a verdict for $1,500,000 in a case against a hotel in Camden County, Georgia. The case involved a hotel front-desk clerk giving out our client’s room key to an unknown individual who ultimately used the key to enter the client’s room and sexually assault her. During the course of discovery it was discovered that the hotel did not have a written policy requiring individuals to present identification before recoding keys and the hotel employees essentially had no training in this regard.

- How Common are Pharmacy Errors?
Very. You should check every prescription you have filled to confirm that you have the correct medication – this especially true with your children’s medication. Many chain pharmacies (CVS, Walgreens, etc.) actually have a “pill identifier” label on the outside of the bottle. This label describes the shape and color of the pill that is supposed to be in the bottle. Some chain pharmacies (i.e. Wal-Mart) don’t currently provide this label. You should always confirm that both the label on the outside of your bottle is correct as well as the shape, size, and inscription on the pill is correct. […]
