Unfortunately, many pedestrian accidents in Atlanta and throughout this nation happen when drivers speed up to make their left turns in front of oncoming traffic or before the light changes. When pedestrians are crossing the street at the same time, serious pedestrian injuries and fatalities can occur all because a driver didn’t look prior to turning left.
If you were injured while you were crossing the street in a crosswalk, the driver may be held accountable for your injuries and damages. It is best to talk with an experienced Atlanta accident attorney to find out exactly how much your case may be worth depending on the extent of your injuries and if you were observing traffic laws when your accident occurred.
You may be entitled to compensation for the following:
- Medical expenses, including surgery, doctor’s visits, and medication
- Rehabilitation costs, including physical therapy and occupational therapy
- Lost income, including future lost wages
- Pain and suffering in some circumstances
