Pedestrian Accidents in Georgia
Pedestrians are some of the most at-risk parties on our roads who are prone to some of the most horrific harm on Georgia roads. This is due to the fact that they have few protections from harm and receive some of the most catastrophic injuries. Some of the most common injuries that pedestrians sustain in the event of an accident include spinal cord injuries, TBIs, fractures, and more. In just one recent year’s time in the state of Georgia, approximately 260 people were injured as a result of pedestrian-related collisions. Teens are some of the most at-risk parties involved in these accidents due to the fact that they are not always paying close attention to the roads as closely as adults. If you have been harmed in a pedestrian accident and wonder where you can turn, it is essential that you speak with an attorney as soon as possible.
