Pedestrian Accidents in Georgia
Pedestrians are some of the most vulnerable parties on our roads due to the fact that they have no protection from harm in the event of an accident. This means that many pedestrians will either be injured or lose their lives in collisions every year. In just 2018 alone, it was reported that approximately 260 people were killed in pedestrian accidents throughout Georgia. Many others were injured as a result. If you have been hurt in a pedestrian accident that is not your fault, it is important that you seek the help of an attorney who has your best interests in mind.
Being injured in a Georgia pedestrian accident can have a huge and lasting impact on every aspect of your life. The truth is, many pedestrian accidents can be prevented but continue to happen when drivers are not paying close attention to the roads around them. In the blink of an eye, your life could be turned upside-down due to an accident that is not your fault.
