Pedestrian Accidents in Georgia

Pedestrians are the most at-risk parties on our roads in the state of Georgia. This is due to the fact that pedestrians have no protection from harm in the event of an accident involving any type of large vehicle. In 2021, it was reported that over 322 pedestrians were killed in fatal accidents throughout the state of Georgia. On top of this, many other pedestrians are seriously injured. These parties tend to spend an extended period of time in the hospital attempting to get back on their feet. If you have been severely injured in a pedestrian accident, you should speak with an attorney as soon as possible.
