Pedestrian Accidents in Georgia
Pedestrian accidents do not happen as commonly as other accidents on our roads but they tend to lead to some of the most extensive harm. This is due to the fact that pedestrians have no protection from harm in the event of an accident. Many pedestrians are seriously injured or even lose their lives in pedestrian accidents every year. In just 2018 alone, it was reported that approximately 260 pedestrians were killed in fatal accidents in Georgia.
