If you are like a majority of people, you appreciate having some control over your future and the way your life goes. Granted, there will always be situations that are unexpected and require you to deviate, sometimes significantly, from your previously organized plans. However, being proactive about making goals and plans can help you maintain some control over your life. At McCamy Law Firm, we are experienced in helping families in Georgia to plan their estate in an efficient and reliable manner.
When Georgia residents go to work, they usually do not think about getting hurt. However, slips, falls and trips are more common than many people may realize and it is a good idea for workers to know how they can prevent these kinds of accidents.
Motorcycle crashes can quickly lead to fatal or debilitating injuries. Thanks to the less-severe seasons in Georgia, it's sometimes possible to use your motorcycle throughout the year. One thing to keep in mind, though, is that some people may not be used to seeing motorcyclists all year. Tourists and travelers, for example, could be unfamiliar with motorcyclists on the roadways and accidentally cause a collision.
If you are one of the many residents in Georgia who is in their 20s or early 30s, you might not have ever thought about making a will. This type of thing may seem only necessary for your parents or your grandparents. However, you should know that estate planning is important for you as well. In addition, an estate plan is about a whole lot more than just a will that outlines who will get your stuff when you die.
In 2012, Georgia Governor Deal signed the "Responsible Dog Ownership Law" into law, citing that it would safeguard the common public and their furry friends from harm and death caused by the attacks of dangerous dogs.

When you get hurt due to someone else's negligence, you may have the right to file a personal injury case in a Georgia court. Personal injury cases are civil cases. This means they do not result in any criminal punishments. Instead, they could result in money being paid to you. If you want to file a personal injury case, you should understand how the process works beforehand.
