Pedestrian Accidents in Georgia
Though pedestrians are offered special protections on our roads so that they are kept safe from harm, accidents involving these vulnerable parties continue to occur. Georgia is actually known for being one of the worst states for pedestrians on our roads. It ranks fourth in the entire country for pedestrian-related fatalities. In just 2021 alone, it was reported that approximately 348 pedestrians were killed in fatal accidents throughout Georgia and many others sustained life-altering injuries. If you are someone who was involved in a serious pedestrian accident, speaking with a legal advocate is in your best interests.
Being hurt in a pedestrian accident can have a huge and lasting impact on every aspect of your life. It is normal to be left with life-altering injuries and wonder where you can turn after one of these accidents, which leave parties incredibly vulnerable.
