Pedestrian Accidents in Georgia
Pedestrians are known for being some of the most at-risk parties on our roads. This is due to the fact that they have no protection from harm in the event of an accident. This means that many pedestrians will become injured or even killed in an accident. In just 2018 alone, it was reported that approximately 260 people were killed in Georgia pedestrian accidents and many others were seriously injured. If your life has been turned upside-down due to a pedestrian accident, you may be feeling alone and confused. It is important that you speak with an attorney who has your best interests in mind.
