In many parts of Georgia, many individuals walk as their preferred method of travel. In urban areas it is actually common as buses and trains are sometimes less convenient due to the number of stops and traffic conditions. While there are many benefits of traveling by foot, a number of pedestrians are injured each day while attempting to arrive at their intended destination. Unfortunately, there are many causes of pedestrian-related incidents. If you or your loved one has been injured in an accident or incident, you need a lawyer to help you obtain relief. Contact us today for a risk-free initial consultation.Motor Vehicle Accidents
Motor vehicle collisions with pedestrians seriously injure or fatally kill thousands of pedestrians each year. Whether an accident is caused by intentional conduct, the failure to comply with laws that require drivers to yield to pedestrians, or the failure to share the road with pedestrians walking on rural Georgia roadways, many of these accidents can be avoided. However, when injuries occur as a result of a motor vehicle collision, the physical and emotional toll on the victim and his or her family can be devastating. Victims are often drained due to the adverse effects on their health and finances. When a motor vehicle strikes you or your loved one, a full investigation is necessary. An investigation by one of our experienced attorneys can help determine the exact cause of the accident to help you obtain the most compensation for the injuries sustained.Slip, Trip, and Falls
Slip and fall accidents are another common type of pedestrian accidents that impact thousands of unsuspecting victims each year. It is important to understand that these types of accidents can happen anywhere. Regardless of whether you are at a mall, a movie theater, a supermarket, or an amusement park, business owners have a responsibility to maintain the premises in such a way that ensures that those lawfully present are protected from dangerous conditions that they knew or should have known about. The failure to do so could mean that you or your loved one has the option to file a premises liability lawsuit against those who failed to act in accordance with the law.Persons Firm: Experienced Personal Injury Litigators
