There are over 5,000 preventable pedestrian deaths in the U.S. every year and countless pedestrian accidents resulting in serious personal injury. Many of these wrongful deaths and catastrophic injuries occur in the Atlanta metropolitan area. Unfortunately, Atlanta is regularly recognized as one of the top 10 most dangerous cities for pedestrians in the U.S.
Distracted drivers are the leading cause of pedestrian accidents. Additionally, many motorists are not educated on Georgia laws protecting pedestrians. When a car hits a runner or a walker the consequences are often disastrous for the pedestrian. Therefore, a driver has a legal duty to use the utmost care to avoid collisions with pedestrians at all times.
