Pedestrian Accident in Georgia
Georgia is no stranger to pedestrian accidents. Though so many will end with serious injuries and hospitalizations, others will end in fatalities due to the negligence of others. Georgia actually raked 16th highest in U.S. pedestrian deaths, with many more being injured every year. Drivers fail to watch out for pedestrians every year, who are owed one of the highest duties of care due to the fact that they are especially vulnerable to serious accidents.
