Pedestrian Accidents in Georgia

Pedestrian accidents are some of the most severe accidents that happen on our roads throughout Georgia and beyond. Pedestrians are some of the most at-risk parties on our roads due to the fact that they have no protection from harm in the event of an accident involving any type of vehicle. In 2021, it was reported that approximately 322 pedestrians were killed in fatal pedestrian accidents and many others were seriously injured throughout Georgia. Between 2016 and 2020, more than 1,200 people were hit and killed by vehicles in Georgia. If you have sustained immense damage due to a pedestrian accident, you should speak with an attorney that you can trust. 

After a pedestrian accident, many people wonder where they are going to turn. These accidents are typically so severe that they land victims in the hospital with some of the following serious injuries: 

  • Spinal cord injuries
  • Traumatic brain injuries
  • Organ damage
  • Broken bones

These injuries sometimes land victims in the hospital for days, weeks, or months at a time. On top of this, they tend to cause victims to miss out on time at work. Speaking with a Marietta personal injury attorney can ensure that your rights are being protected after a pedestrian accident.
