Augusta Georgia Car Accident Lawyers
Occupants of motor vehicles are protected by the structure and safety devices within the motor vehicle. Motorcycle helmets and protective gear offer protection to motorcyclists. However, joggers, bicyclists and other pedestrians have little to protect them from injuries if they are struck by a vehicle. As a result, pedestrian and bicycle accidents result in very serious injuries and fatalities. According to the National Highway Transportation Safety Administration (NHTSA), in 2007, 124,000 pedestrians, bicyclists and other people not in vehicles were injured in accidents in which they were hit by a car or other motor vehicle.
Pedestrians have virtually no protection against vehicles on the road and often suffer serious injuries when they are struck. At the law office of Burnside Law Firm, we represent pedestrians who are injured by inattentive drivers. In fact, we recently made a significant recovery for a young lady who was struck by a turning driver who failed to see her walking in the crosswalk. If you have been injured in a similar fashion or wish to learn more about whether you have a case, contact us at either our Athens-Clarke County or Richmond County, Georgia law office.
