Pursuing Pedestrian Accident Claims in Atlanta 

Pedestrian accidents almost always result in severe and life threatening injuries and even fatalities.  Liability in an Atlanta pedestrian accident can extend not just to the motorist who was driving the vehicle, but also any agencies that may have been responsible for defective design or negligent maintenance.   An injured person can claim damages for both economic losses - medical bills, hospitalization - as well as non-economic losses like damages for pain and suffering, etc.

In the accident results in death, the family may file a wrongful death claim. These claims are involve both tangible (financial) losses, as well as intangible losses, like loss of the joy of living which may be harder to quantify.  In addition, a jury may return a verdict for punitive damages, where there was conscious pain and suffering, to deter an exceedingly reckless driver.

If you have been injured in a pedestrian accident, you will need the counsel of an experienced Atlanta pedestrian accident attorney to recover damages for you.  Contact an Atlanta pedestrian accident lawyer at my office for a free evaluation of your case.
