Atlanta Pedestrian Accident Attorney

Right of Way & Pedestrian Accidents

Rules of the road dictate that pedestrians have the right of way on the sidewalks and crossing streets, as long as they are following all traffic laws regarding when and where they do so. Motorists and bicyclists often fail to yield right of way to pedestrians who fairly deserve it, however, which often results in catastrophic accidents and injuries. For example, if a pedestrian is at a street corner and legally begins to cross, but a motorist is distracted and turns right without noticing the pedestrian as they leave the curb, the driver should be held liable for the pedestrian's injuries since they were following the law at the time of the accident.

Fighting for Compensation

When you've been injured while walking on a sidewalk or crossing a street, don't hesitate to consult with an Atlanta personal injury attorney and learn whether or not you have a personal injury case. If you had the right of way, your lawyer could help you file a claim and fight for adequate compensation from the liable party. Many pedestrian accidents are catastrophic and could result in permanent damage that requires ongoing medical care, and therefore ongoing compensation, so get aggressive legal counsel immediately.
