Pedestrian Accidents in Georgia
Pedestrians have no protection from harm on our roads, which means that they are prone to extensive harm in the event of an accident. This also means that pedestrians are catastrophically injured or even killed in accidents every year throughout Georgia. In just 2018 alone, it was reported that approximately 260 pedestrians were killed in accidents and many others were injured. The truth is, many of these accidents can be prevented on our roads but continue to happen due to the recklessness of others. If you have lost someone you love in a fatal pedestrian accident, you may be feeling alone and confused. You and your family have options and should have the dedicated help of an attorney on your side.
