Pedestrian Accidents in Georgia
Pedestrians have no protection from harm in the event of an accident involving any type of vehicle. Because of this, they are likely to become catastrophically injured or even killed in the event of an accident. In 2020 alone, in fact, it was estimated that approximately 273 pedestrians were killed and many others were injured in Georgia pedestrian accidents. These numbers have been steadily increasing over the years. Drivers are expected to pay close attention to the roads around them but pedestrian accidents still continue to happen.
