Unfortunately, though, sometimes the care and attention fall short in many nursing homes, and that can have drastic consequences. As we all can imagine, working at a nursing home is a physically, mentally, and emotionally demanding job. The stress that the staff is under can pave the way for abuse, neglect, and mistreatment of the residents.

Common Causes Of Georgia Car Accidents

Over the past decade, car manufacturers have added to their vehicles an increasing number of features designed to keep you safe. Backup cameras, emergency braking, and lane-keep assist are just some of the features commonly included these days to prevent collisions. Airbag systems and vehicle structure have also improved to provide greater protection in case of an accident.

Notably, Georgia’s roadways saw a surge in car accident fatalities in 2020 even though fewer vehicles were on the roads due to the pandemic.
