Anytime people are walking near vehicles, they are in jeopardy. While not every pedestrian will be harmed by cars and trucks, many pedestrians have had close calls or have been victims of Georgia pedestrian accidents due to negligent drivers.
There are many different places in which a pedestrian in Georgia or in any state could be in danger, including the following locations:
- Street corner or curb
- Along the side of the road
- Parking lot
- Bike lane
As you can see from this list, there is not one safe spot for pedestrians. This is because any driver—at any given time—could fall asleep at the wheel, drive drunk, participate in distracted driving, speed, run a red light, or be reckless and crash into a pedestrian. Unfortunately, a pedestrian accident in Fayette County, Georgia can take place on a city street, residential street, or even parking lot.
If you or someone you love have been harmed in a Georgia pedestrian accident at an intersection, sidewalk, or even on a residential street, you may be entitled to financial compensation for your injuries, medical expenses, physical therapy, lost income, pain and suffering, and other damages.
