At McCamy Phillips Tuggle & Fordham, LLP, in Georgia, we know all too well how a motor vehicle accident can devastate you and your family. The injuries you and/or your loved ones can receive may impact you for the rest of your lives.
It can happen without any warning: you are driving along Georgia roadways, you stop at an intersection or railway crossing, and all of a sudden you feel a jolt from behind as another vehicle crashes into yours. You may feel fine initially after the accident, but within 24 hours (sometimes longer) you may develop symptoms of neck stiffness and pain, shoulder tenderness or headaches that may indicate a case of whiplash.
After a brain injury, there is a possibility that a person's entire nature could change. Personality changes aren't as uncommon as you may think when brain injuries are involved.

At McCamy, Phillips, Tuggle & Fordham, we believe it is important for you as adoptive parents to be ready, both emotionally and legally, to bring a child into your home.
Residents in Georgia have good reason to be frustrated by the ongoing problems related to drunk driving. Despite decades of active campaigns that raise awareness and educate people about the dangers of driving after consuming alcohol or using drugs, too many people continue to do just that. As a result, too many innocent people are injured or killed in the accidents that often ensue. This then leaves their friends and family members mourning a loss that was completely preventable.
