“When you hire me, you hire me. You’re not hiring a paralegal or a junior associate.”

Macon, GA Personal Injury LawyerPersonal injuries happen every day and in every situation – on the road, at work, at home, and in the hospital, grocery store or shopping mall. An injured person might recover over a period of weeks, months or longer while not being able to work to pay for such expenses as primary medical care, medicine, therapy and rehabilitation, in-home care, a wheelchair, and property damage, such as to repair or replace a car after a wreck. People who are injured by others deserve to be compensated for their losses, but aggressive legal help is usually required to realize that goal.

Help Investigating Your Case

Georgia law allows for a personal injury lawsuit to be filed as a way to seek relief and provide compensation for medical bills, lost wages and pain and suffering. One of the most important ways our personal injury lawyers can assist you is during the investigation of the accident. Whether the incident occurred in a vehicle wreck, while on-the-job or in a public space there are sometimes multiple at-fault parties and overlapping insurance policies. Our thorough investigation can help you more fully understand what happened, what went wrong, and who may be liable.

Help Protecting Your Interests

When it comes to handling injuries and accidents, it is important to remember that the police are neutral and not in a position to investigate or protect your individual circumstances. Employers are often pressured to do the least to resolve a work injury – wanting to wrap it up quickly in order to get back to business-as-usual. And, insurance companies are already ‘lawyered-up’, working hard to protect their bottom-line. You need an advocate working on your side.

Help With the Insurance Companies

Macon, GA personal injury lawyer David Mann is involved in every case. David left larger firms, including work as a lawyer for a large insurance company, to join his family law firm. This work with insurance companies provided invaluable insight about their defense strategies that helps us better serve our clients.

“It really helps to know what the tactics are on the defense side. Once you file a lawsuit, it helps to know both sides of the fence; it helps you to know what’s coming before it comes and to better plan for it.”

Help Securing Compensation

The Mann Law Firm has helped hundreds of Middle Georgia residents during the hardest times of their lives, and we understand the impact a serious injury or an unexpected death has on a family. The Mann Law Firm provides the personal touch that the sensitive issues surrounding personal injury and wrongful death cases deserve.

Drug Testing, Hours of Service Could Become Issues In Trucking Industry in 2019

Drug Testing, Hours of Service Could Become Issues In Trucking Industry in 2019

The trucking industry remains concerned with regulations, with matters including the drug testing of applicants, modifying how long truck drivers may drive in 24 hours, and digital monitoring being the top worries of drivers and trucking companies. Other matters the trucking industry is focused on are the patchwork of state laws that regulate how truckers can be paid and trying to figure out two confusing rule changes in California. This information comes from DAT Solutions, a company based in Portland, Oregon, that is charged with matching freight with various carriers. Here is a closer look at the top issues the trucking industry is concerned with today: Automatic On-Board Recording Devices Strict enforcement of electronic logging devices that track a truck’s hours in operation damage productivity and account for at least half of a 30% increase in spot shipping rates last year. This mandate was passed at the end of 2016. Trucking fleets that use Automatic On-Board Recording Devices had 24 months to comply. Carriers that used paper logs had until late December 2017. Hours-of-Service Reforms Drivers who are displeased with ELDs really have an issue with limits on hours of service, according to the survey. The FMCSA in 2018 hosted industry meetings that led to changes in the hours-of-service rules. The FMCSA had more than 5,000 public comments. The partial shutdown of the federal government a few months ago hampered progress in developing new hours-of-service rules, including the potential elimination of a half-hour rest break after driving for eight hours. The FMCSA also wanted ideas on how to divide the 10-hour sleep break for over-the-road drivers. New Minimum Wage Laws The majority of truck drivers are paid for each mile they drive. More than 20 states and the District of Columbia have increased their minimum wage in 2019. The increase boosts the chance of lawsuits that target trucking companies for breaking wage and hour rules. The current minimum wage in the U.S. is $7.25 per hour. Employers having operations in various states need to be on top of these assorted state requirements. More Rigorous Drug Testing Two new drug-testing regulations could increase the driver shortage in the trucking industry, because they will possibly screen out recreational drug users. Carriers are required to search the Drug and Alcohol Clearinghouse by Jan. 2020 for violations when they are doing prescreening for drivers. Laws in Other States The supreme court in California has devised a test that trucking companies must follow to ensure the correct classification of owner-operators as being independent contractors rather than company employees. This is a very contentious issue in the state. Another is the court’s disagreement over the findings by FMCSA that trucking companies do not have to comply with California’s meal and rest break standards because federal laws cover hours of service. Whether similar issues could become relevant in Georgia remains to be seen, but it’s clear that the same problems affecting the trucking industry in other states are also impacting us.

Three Things Cause 10,000 Road Deaths Every Year

Three Things Cause 10,000 Road Deaths Every Year

Bloomberg News reported this month that federal safety officials are targeting the three worst driver habits in the country that are killing at least 10,000 Americans annually: speeding, drunk driving and distracted driving from electronic devices. According to the U.S. National Transportation Safety Board, its list of ‘Most Wanted’ safety improvements on American roads includes a strong focus on three of the 10 behaviors by drivers that are leading to so much carnage. Federal officials say targeting speeding, drunk driving and distracted driving could really make a dent in the 37,000 fatal car accidents that occur in the U.S. each year. The ‘Most Wanted’ list of safety improvements also focuses on such things as fatigued drivers, improved anti-crash technology and requiring seatbelts on school business and passenger buses. More details on the ‘Most Wanted’ list and other safety items are below. Cut Down on Speeding The report states that more proven tools should be used on the roads to reduce speeding. Some of the items recommended are traffic cameras, better vehicle technology and design of infrastructure to make speeding more difficult and less likely. Reduce Driver Distractions There is no doubt, the NTSB states, that driver distraction from electronic devices is causing more deaths and injuries on America’s roads. Drivers need to pay closer attention to what they are doing, and so do railroad engineers, pilots, truck drivers and even pedestrians. The federal government reports driver distraction was connected to more than 3,000 traffic deaths in just 2017. Alcohol and Drug Impairment Alcohol is one of the top causes of death on American highways. The NTSB wants to see a reduction in what is classified as ‘drunk driving,’ lowering the permissible BAC from .08% to .05%. Deaths that are related to drunk driving just on highways numbered more than 11,000 in 2017. Better Collision Avoidance Systems The NTSB wants auto manufacturers to put technology in new vehicles that would allow automatic braking to avoid many crashes. Reduce Driver Fatigue Crashes The federal government urges a new, comprehensive approach to fight driver and operator fatigue in highway, rail and aviation transportation. Require More Medical Fitness Screening Sleep apnea has been the cause of many serious accidents in recent years involving truck drivers and rail engineers. There needs to be better screening for health problems of all bus drivers, train engineers and truck drivers to reduce accidents across the U.S. Contact the Mann Law Firm Today for a Free Consultation It is sad that preventable accidents involving speeding, impaired driving and distracted driving are killing at least 10,000 Americans per year. Our hope is that these accidents will become less common as the federal government focuses on the root causes.
