Pedestrian Accidents in Georgia
Pedestrians are the most at-risk parties on our roads when it comes to accidents. This is due to the fact that pedestrians have no protection from harm in the event of an accident, especially when large vehicles are involved. Pedestrians are likely to become seriously injured or even killed in the event of a pedestrian accident. In just 2018 alone, it was reported that approximately 260 pedestrians were killed and many others were injured in these accidents throughout Georgia. If you have suffered from injuries in a pedestrian accident, you will need to prove that another party is at fault for your accident. It is imperative that you have the dedicated help of an attorney on your side.
Being injured in a pedestrian accident can impact your life in a variety of ways. You may be left feeling alone and confused after one of these accidents. Some of the most severe injuries that stem from these accidents include the following:
- Spinal cord injuries
- Traumatic brain injuries
- Organ damage
The injuries that stem from pedestrian accidents can be life-altering in nature. They tend to land victims in the hospital and cause them to miss out on time in the workplace.
