Pedestrian Accidents in Georgia
Pedestrians are some of the most at-risk parties on Georgia roads every year. In fact, hundreds of people are killed and many others are injured in pedestrian accidents throughout the state every year. This is due to the fact that pedestrians have no protection from harm when involved in an accident with a large vehicle. In 2018 alone, it was reported that approximately 260 pedestrians were killed and many others were injured in accidents within the state of Georgia. Pedestrian accidents happen due to many different reasons. These include distracted driving, drunk driving, speeding, fatigued driving, and more. As an injured pedestrian, you will have to show that another party is at fault for your accident so that you can move forward. It is important that you speak with an accident attorney that you can trust at this time.
