Injuries suffered in pedestrian accidents can be quite severe, even when the driver of the motor vehicle is not going at a very high speed.
A pedestrian is completely unprotected from the force of the collision, even less so than motorcycle riders where a helmet and protective clothing is usually worn.
As a result, pedestrian accidents often result in critical or even fatal injuries.
If you or a loved one were injured in a pedestrian accident, it is imperative that you reach out for legal help as soon as you are able.
Pedestrian Accident Causes
Pedestrian accidents are common on Georgia roadways, and there are many factors that can come into play that cause a vehicle to collide with someone walking on a road or in a parking lot.
