Flying truck tire results in death on Georgia interstate

The tires of a tractor-trailer can weigh approximately 100 pounds or more. If they come loose while the truck is in motion, it can pose a threat not only to the truck operator but to drivers of surrounding vehicles. Such a scenario recently played out in Peach County, Georgia, on Interstate 75. The loss of a truck tire reportedly caused the death of a 36-year-old woman after it reportedly struck her vehicle. 

How are domestic and international adoption different?

As a prospective parent looking to adopt in Georgia, the decisions you make now can last a lifetime. One of the most important involves how you want to adopt and from where. You can choose to adopt a child from the United States or an international location. There are children in need of loving homes everywhere, so one is not inherently better than the other. However, you may find that either domestic or international adoption works better for your family. 

Spinal cord injuries can be frightening at first

Some motor vehicle crashes result in a victim suffering from a spinal cord injury, which is a life-changing experience. Impacts depend on the severity and location. Areas of the body that are affected by the injury are always lower than the location of the damage to the spine. More of the body is impacted when it occurs closer to the neck than what happens if it is nearer to the tailbone.

Georgia's DUI laws may not be tough enough

All throughout the United States, including in Georgia, the penalties for a person convicted of driving under the influence of alcohol have become stronger over the last several decades. However, there is quite a variance between the penalties imposed by each state. One example of how things may differ is the required use of ignition interlock devices. IIDs are used predominately to prevent repeat DUIs.

FDA requests that manufacturer recall implants linked to cancer

Women in Georgia who are considering breast implants, or have had them in the past, should pay attention to the recent news that studies have linked a particular brand of textured breast implants to a rare form of cancer. Due to the evidence that appears to link the specific product to patient harm, the Food and Drug Administration requested that the manufacturer of the implants recall them. Allergan, the company responsible for the manufacture of the implants, complied with this request last week, issuing a statement saying that no further distribution or sale of the implants in question will take place.
