Pedestrian Accidents in Georgia

Pedestrian accidents are some of the most catastrophic accidents that happen on our roads in Georgia every year. This is due to the fact that pedestrians have no protection from harm when they are involved in an accident. Pedestrians have every right to utilize the roads without having to worry about drivers striking them in an accident. However, collisions happen all the time when drivers are not paying close attention to the roads around them. In 2021, it was reported that over 322 people were killed in Georgia pedestrian accidents and many others sustained serious injuries.
