Train Accidents in Georgia
Every year, hundreds of pedestrians lose their lives and thousands more are injured in accidents involving vehicles. One of the less popular modes of transportation that sometimes becomes involved in pedestrian accidents is trains. Trains are some of the largest vehicles in the state of Georgia, which means that they are capable of causing immense harm to those involved in these accidents. It is important that victims speak with an accident attorney after they have been involved in one of these accidents.

Pedestrians who survive these accidents could wind up with a wide array of traumatic injuries including spinal cord injuries, TBIs, fractures, organ damage, and more. This means that pedestrians will spend a period of time recovering in the hospital and will likely have to spend weeks or even months away from the workplace.
