Pedestrian crashes are the cause of thousands of deaths each year in the United States. Tens of thousands more are left with serious injuries that impact their lives forever. Unfortunately, countless accidents take place right here in Georgia.
Being involved in a pedestrian crash can have an overwhelming impact on your life. Unfortunately, pedestrians are more likely to suffer severe injuries during collisions.
