Pedestrian Accidents in Georgia
Pedestrians are some of the most at-risk parties on our roads. This is due to the fact that pedestrians have no protection from harm in the event of an accident. This means that pedestrians are more likely to become seriously injured or even killed in a pedestrian accident. In 2018 alone, it was reported that approximately 260 people were killed in fatal pedestrian accidents due to the recklessness of others in Georgia. These accidents occur in the blink of an eye due to the fact that drivers are not always paying close attention to the roads around them.
