Pedestrians constantly at risk for injuries in car accidents

On Behalf of | Mar 21, 2019 | Car Accidents, Firm News

Pedestrians are among the most vulnerable people to car accidents on the streets in Georgia. With the number of drivers who are reckless behind the wheel, are not paying attention to the road or are under the influence, crashes can happen without warning and lead to serious injuries and death. With the long-term damage that can accompany pedestrian-car accidents, those who have been impacted must remember their rights and consider a legal filing for compensation.

Two pedestrians were seriously injured when an out-of-control car crashed into them. Also injured in the accident was a two-year-old girl who was in the vehicle. According to the investigation, the driver of the vehicle hit a parked car before hitting a male and female. It stopped when it hit a power pole. The pedestrians were hospitalized. The driver remained at the site of the crash and rode with the child to the hospital. The investigation into the crash and why the driver lost control of the vehicle is continuing.

Medical costs, lost time on the job, surgical procedures, the need for extensive therapy and sudden hardship on loved ones are just some of the aftereffects of a pedestrian-car accident. The absence of protection is one of the main causes of damage to pedestrians after an accident. These frequently come about because of driver error or negligence. Since it is so life-changing to be injured or lose a loved one in this kind of accident, a legal filing is often the main strategy to recover adequate compensation for all that was lost.

For unknown reasons, a driver lost control of his vehicle, sideswiped a parked car and then hit two pedestrians before crashing into a pole. The investigation is seeking to determine how and why it happened. As the people receive treatment for their injuries, they must be fully protected and talk to a law firm that has helped many with filing lawsuits after car accidents.
