Pedestrian Accident Attorney in Atlanta
Pedestrian accident injury in Georgia cases can be complicated. We can help
Pedestrians in Georgia have just as much right to use the road as cars, trucks, and motorcycles in Georgia. Unfortunately, drivers don’t seem to pay as much attention to people walking alongside the road or lawfully crossing the street at a crosswalk. That’s why there are so many car accidents involving pedestrians injured while crossing the street or walking alongside one.
A common excuse that drivers give when they cause such accidents is that they “failed to see” the pedestrian. Sometimes the driver – or their insurance company – might even try to claim that the pedestrian did something to cause the accident. However, most pedestrian accidents are preventable and happen as a result of negligent drivers who might be speeding, distracted by their cell phone, or driving drunk. When you’ve done nothing to cause your accident, you shouldn’t have to pay for somebody else’s mistakes.
A pedestrian accident can happen anywhere, anytime in Georgia – now you have somewhere to turn. Rely on the experienced pedestrian accident attorneys at Gary Martin Hays & Associates to help you sort through the insurance company red tape and get the compensation you deserve. Call 1-800-898-HAYS right away.
Atlanta pedestrian accident lawyers who know how to protect your rights
Driver negligence, from drunk driving to distractions such as text messaging, entitles those hurt in a pedestrian accident to pursue compensation. In some cases, you may also be entitled to compensation from the uninsured / under-insured motorist provisions of auto insurance policies held by members of your household.
Pedestrian deaths rank second only to occupant deaths in car and truck accidents nationwide. Every year, more than 4,500 fatal pedestrian accidents occur in the United States, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. Injuries common in pedestrian accidents include:
- Traumatic brain injuries (TBI)
