Pedestrian Accidents in Georgia
Pedestrian accidents are known for being some of the most catastrophic accidents on our roads due to the fact that pedestrians have no protection from harm. Because they are more vulnerable than any other party on our roads, they are more likely to lose their lives than any other party. In 2018 alone, approximately 260 people were killed in pedestrian accidents in Georgia. If you have lost a loved one in a pedestrian accident and wonder where you can turn, it is imperative that you speak with an accident attorney who has handled claims like yours in the past.
