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 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

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:

  • Speeding
  • Running red lights or stop signs
  • Driving while under the influence of drugs or alcohol
  • Distracted driving
  • Driving while drowsy

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.


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.
