Study finds association between opioid use, traffic fatalities

Georgia drivers who cause fatal two-car accidents might be more likely to be under the influence of alcohol or prescription opioids than drivers who are not at fault. Researchers looked at 18,321 fatal two-car accidents and found that more than 900 drivers who were at fault tested positive for prescription opioids compared to 549 who were not at fault. More than 5,200 motorists who were at fault tested positive for alcohol compared to 1,815 who were not at fault.

Understanding the ins and outs of Social Security Disability

You worked for most of your adult life, but an accident or severe illness has rendered you permanently disabled. Your condition has left you unable to work for the foreseeable future, if not the rest of your life, and you are worried. How can you support your family now? Will you lose everything? It is understandable for you and other Georgia residents in the same situation to have concerns.

Common causes of car accidents

Human error, equipment malfunction or even animals could be the cause of motor vehicle accidents in Georgia. Human error includes driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs. Distracted driving is another common cause of car accidents. Using a phone while driving, eating and even dealing with children while in the car may be distracting enough to cause an accident. Some accidents may occur because the driver has a stroke, a seizure or another medical incident. Even getting lost or being unfamiliar with traffic laws, particularly if the person is from another state, could lead to an accident.
