Study examines dog breeds in dog bite cases involving children

Dogs may be "man's best friend," but even a seemingly-friendly dog can bite. Dog bites can result in serious physical injuries. Dog bites can also cause significant emotional trauma.

How are unsecured debts handled in Chapter 13 bankruptcy?

It's a myth to think that everyone in Georgia who files for bankruptcy will lose all their possessions and become impoverished. If a person files for Chapter 13 bankruptcy, instead of having their assets liquidated, they will instead follow a three to five-year court-ordered repayment plan that will allow them to address their debts. Once the repayment period is up, many (but probably not all) of the person's debts will be extinguished.

What is the statute of limitations for car accidents in Georgia?

A car accident can happen in a split-second, but for those injured in them the aftereffects of the crash could last a lifetime. When a person is injured in a motor vehicle accident, they may incur hefty medical and rehabilitation bills. They may be unable to work for a period, resulting in lost wages. A car accident victim may also experience pain and suffering, along with emotional trauma. It is a lot to deal with, especially if the collision was the fault of another.

Chapter 7 bankruptcy is not for everyone. While there are a number of reasons that it is an effective legal tool for helping Georgia residents get out from under their oppressive debts, there are just as many reasons that individuals may wish to look at their other options when preparing to take on their outstanding loans. Before jumping into a Chapter 7 bankruptcy filing, a debtor should discuss their options with a knowledgeable attorney.

Can trespassers sue for dog bite injuries?

It is common for Georgia residents to see "beware of dog" signs posted on their neighbors' gates, fences and homes. These signs warn others that a canine is present in the house or yard and that the dog may not be restrained. Signs of this nature are often used to deter individuals from entering the properties of others, since the threat of dog attacks is present.
