Pedestrian Accidents

Amber is heaven sent!! Amber and her team worked very hard on my case!! They checked on me while I had my weekly doctor visits. They were very detailed with my settlement. I didn’t have to second guess anything. I would recommend her to anybody who is in a car accident !! I’ve even referred my love ones who also needed her to represent them in an accident. She made my process as painless as possible. I wish I could give her 10 stars!!

Jeannette A., Client

I was referred to Amber by my daughter-in-law. I was involved in two rear end collisions in a three month period. She did an excellent job keeping me informed and explained everything to me, in a manner that I could understand. She followed through with me until I had my settlements.

Atlanta Pedestrian Accident Lawyer
Fighting for the Rights of the Injured

Pedestrian accidents often result in severe injuries and even death.

If you’ve been injured or lost a loved one as a pedestrian, you need someone on your side who can help you navigate the claim process so that you can focus on your recovery. A knowledgeable and skilled Atlanta pedestrian accident lawyer can help you get the compensation you need to rebuild your life.

Common Causes of Pedestrian Accidents in Georgia

Pedestrian accidents are more common than people think and are often the result of ordinary driver error. Most pedestrian accidents are the result of the following causes:

Smartphones are a major hazard for pedestrians, as they not only create a mental distraction, but they also require drivers to take their eyes off the road and hands off the wheel.

Working with an Atlanta Pedestrian Accident Lawyer You May Be Entitled to Compensation

You may be able to pursue a claim for your monetary losses and other damages if you can prove that the driver was negligent. Most pedestrians are the fault of the other person, but an Atlanta pedestrian accident lawyer can help you make your case. If you can prove the driver was negligent, you may be entitled to compensation for the following:

  • Your medical expenses, both covered and uncovered
  • Any lost wages or other income
  • Your pain and suffering

In order to prevail, you will need to carefully document your claim. You will need to keep copies of all bills and correspondence related to your accident. You will need to calculate any lost income due to missing work. The most challenging part is estimating the value of your pain and suffering, which is sometimes the biggest component of your claim. An experienced Atlanta pedestrian accident lawyer will be able to review your case and provide you with an estimate of what your claim may be worth.

Pedestrians Have Rights Under Georgia Law

Under Georgia law, pedestrians have the right to use our roadways. These rights are in place not only for the protection of pedestrians but also to clarify the responsibilities of motorists. Georgia law provides the following protections for pedestrians and bicyclists:

  • Pedestrians have the right of way in a crossway and drivers must remain stopped so long as they are on the same half of the roadway or within one lane of the driver’s side of the roadway.
  • While pedestrians must yield the right of way to drivers when crossing a road somewhere other than a crosswalk, they have the right of way once they enter the road.

An Atlanta pedestrian accident lawyer can help you understand how these laws apply to your case. In the event of an accident, evidence that the motorist broke the law can be helpful in proving your claim.
