Pedestrian Accidents in Georgia

Pedestrians are some of the most at-risk parties on our roads in Georgia. This is due to the fact that they have no protection from harm in the event of an accident. Pedestrians are likely to sustain severe injuries or even lose their lives in the event of an accident. Hundreds of victims are actually killed every year in these accidents. In 2020 alone, it was reported that approximately 273 people were killed in pedestrian accidents due to the recklessness of others.
