Pedestrians injured in Georgia
The Atlanta pedestrian accident attorneys at Kaine Law are dedicated to fighting for the rights of injured pedestrians. Nowadays, more people are turning to walking as their primary mode of transportation. Unfortunately, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHSTA), around 5,000 pedestrians die each year after being struck by a motor vehicle and nearly 80,000 pedestrians are injured due to accidents with a car, truck or motorcycle.
Many pedestrian accidents are caused by driver negligence, but poorly maintained roads or walkways can also cause — or contribute to — such accidents. If you or a loved one is the victim of a pedestrian accident caused by another party, you deserve compensation. To speak to an experienced lawyer, contact us as soon as possible.
We help pedestrians hit by cars
When a person out for a walk, jog or run is injured by a car, truck or motorcycle, the results can be devastating for the pedestrian and their family. In the aftermath of a pedestrian accident, the party responsible for causing the accident may be held liable and required to pay damages to the injured victim or their family, which may include:
Because minimum liability insurance requirements in the State of Georgia ($25,000 per person/$50,000 per accident) may not be enough to cover catastrophic injuries such as brain or spinal trauma, the pedestrian accident lawyers at Kaine Law help injured pedestrians explore all possible recovery sources, including other forms of insurance and personal assets.
In cases where poor road conditions, walkways or other factors contributed to an accident, other parties may also be made to pay compensation to an injured pedestrian. In cases of extreme negligence, a pedestrian may even be killed and family members of the deceased may be entitled to compensation. Whatever the cause of your injury or loss, you can be sure that Kaine Law is committed to identifying all liable parties and holding them responsible.
