Autonomous Vehicles: Transportation Of The Future Or Too Soon To Tell?

Autonomous vehicles are becoming more and more common.  Self-driving cars seem like a thing of the future -- a vehicle driving itself and communicating with the other cars around it to get you where you need to go. For a long time, self-driving cars were purely science fiction, but not anymore. While the technology is still relatively new, it has been implemented successfully in many different cases. While a fully reliable autonomous vehicle is still some time out, cars already on the market come with driverless technology, albeit less sophisticated versions, like limited autopilot and self-parking vehicles.  Some specific examples include Tesla with its autopilot driving technology or Google with its self-driving vehicle development company, Waymo. While those are just some of the more prominent examples, most—if not all—major car manufacturers in the United States have begun research and development and even implementation of self-driving technologies in their vehicles.

Hit-and-Run Auto Accident in Macon Leaves Woman in Critical Condition

Devastating Local Car Crash in Macon, GA On Monday, September 14, 2020, a 59-year-old woman driving her moped in Bibb County was struck by an unknown driver in a hit-and-run auto accident. The driver appeared to be heading east in a red Toyota, and the vehicle likely has damage on the driver’s side. The Importance of Receiving Medical Treatment Following a Car Crash The woman was taken to Navicent Health Medical Center shortly after the auto accident, which serves as a good reminder that even if the pedestrian’s injuries weren’t life-threatening, a trip to the ER would have been wise. Auto accidents – especially hit-and-runs – often leave pedestrians with internal injuries that may not show symptoms for days or even weeks. By then, it might be too late to both receive proper treatment and compensation. A good lawyer can help you with the latter. The team at Dozier Law…

Accident in Macon, Georgia Leaves 1 Dead

On Monday, July 27, 2020, a young man’s 2004 Honda Accord was struck, leaving him with fatal wounds. The accident occurred when he pulled out of the “Club X” nightclub parking lot directly into another vehicle’s path. The other vehicle, a 2013 Dodge Ram, hit the Accord with such force that it flipped on impact, killing the Accord’s driver and leaving the Dodge Ram’s operator in critical, but eventually stable, condition. Events and details surrounding the fatal crash are still under investigation. A devastating accident may lead some to ask about dram shop laws. What is Georgia’s Dram Shop Law? Dram shop law applies to every city in the state of Georgia, including Macon, providing sober individuals affected by a drunk driver with compensation if the individual under-the-influence was overserved by another vendor. Dozier Law Firm, a team comprised of expert attorneys, explains: “Georgia’s Dram Shop law is located in…

When Should I See My Doctor After a Car Accident?

It may not seem too bad compared to a serious auto collision, but a minor crash is stressful. After a fender-bender, you need to spend several days dealing with the other driver, your insurance company, and repair shops. The last thing you and other Georgia residents may be thinking of after a minor crash is getting checked out by a doctor. However, the week following an accident is the exact time frame you should be paying attention to how your body feels. You might have walked away from the fender-bender without a scratch, but you could be feeling sore as early as the next day. Whiplash is a common injury suffered by countless people after minor collisions, especially rear-end crashes. This type of injury occurs when your head has been thrown back and forth by the impact. Often, you will not feel the effects of whiplash immediately, but you will begin to…
