University of Georgia Pedestrian Injured in Accident with Bicyclist

According to the United States Department of Transportation data an average of over 60,000 pedestrians are injured in the United States each year. The Research and Innovative Technology Administration (RITA) published a study that indicated the actual number of pedestrian injuries is likely much higher as reported data only includes injuries sustained in accidents with vehicles or bicycles.

A Clayton County pedestrian accident attorney at the Law Offices of Shane Smith can review the incident and advise a victim of his legal rights.

A University of Georgia student was hospitalized after colliding with a bicyclist while walking. According to witnesses, the pedestrian noticed the bicyclist and attempted to avoid being hit at exactly the same time that the bicyclist adjusted his route to avoid the pedestrian. They both moved in the same direction and collided. Police investigators reported that no fault had been determined in the accident.

Victims of pedestrian accidents may seek relief for such things as lost wages, medical expenses and pain and suffering. Victims' families can also seek wrongful death damages. Victims should seek the assistance of a Clayton County pedestrian accident attorney to protect their rights by securing police reports, eyewitness testimony and physical evidence and to deal with insurance representatives.
