We would like to offer our deepest condolences to the family of the deceased victim at this time. 

Pedestrian Accidents in Georgia

Pedestrian accidents are known for being some of the most severe accidents that take place on our roads in Georgia. This is due to the fact that pedestrians have no protection from harm in the event of an accident. It means that pedestrians are likely to become seriously injured or even killed in the event of an accident. In 2020, it was reported that approximately 273 people were killed in fatal pedestrian accidents in Georgia. Nobody ever expects to lose a loved one in a pedestrian accident, especially considering the fact that drivers are supposed to watch for pedestrians at all times. Still, these accidents continue to occur every year. This is why you should always speak with an attorney who has handled these claims in the past.
