Pedestrian accidents are known for being some of the most severe accidents on our roads. This is due to the fact that pedestrians have no protection from harm in the event of an accident. Many pedestrians are seriously injured or lose their lives in accidents every single year. In just 2018 alone, it was reported that approximately 260 pedestrians were killed in Georgia accidents due to the recklessness of others. These accidents occur in the blink of an eye when drivers are not paying close attention to the roads around them.
