Pedestrian Accidents

"Can you help me deal with the aftermath from my pedestrian accident where I suffered leg injuries?"

Yes, our attorneys take on accident cases where drivers hit and injury pedestrians on the sides of roadways. Our highly personable staff of lawyers is well trained in Georgia’s traffic laws. When a car or truck driver acts negligent and disregards their responsibilities, it is easily possible for him or her to then strike a pedestrian on the side of the road.

The car or truck that hits the pedestrian usually lifts the pedestrian up off the ground while accelerating the person to the speed the vehicle was traveling. Then, as the driver reacts to the hit and slams the brakes, the pedestrian in thrown off the vehicle to the ground.

Such a violent accident can do serious injury to the human body. The two most common injuries from pedestrian-car accidents are lower leg injuries, like broken and fractured bones, or head injuries. Other less common injuries include damage to the neck and spine for being whiplashed so aggressively. Traffic crashes like pedestrian accidents can result in serious injuries.
