Pedestrian Accidents in Georgia

Pedestrians have no protection from harm on our roads. This is why it is instilled in pedestrians early on that they should always be aware of drivers around them. Unfortunately, drivers on our roads do not always offer safety to pedestrians. This could be due to many different reasons, such as drunk driving or distracted driving. In the blink of an eye, you could find out that a loved one has been taken from you prematurely in a pedestrian accident. In 2021, it was reported that about 348 pedestrians were killed in fatal accidents due to the recklessness of others in Georgia. If you have sustained these immense losses, speaking with an attorney can help you get back on your feet.
