Pedestrian Accidents in Georgia
Pedestrians are some of the most at-risk parties on our roads in Georgia. This is due to the fact that pedestrians have no protection from harm in the event of an accident with a passenger vehicle. Especially when drivers flee the scene of an accident, this can put a pedestrian at risk who needs immediate medical attention. Many lives are lost to pedestrian accidents every year in the state of Georgia. In 2018 alone, it was reported that approximately 260 pedestrians were killed and many others were injured in pedestrian accidents within the state.
