Atlanta Pedestrian Accident Attorneys

Georgia pedestrians are at a distinct disadvantage when they encounter negligent drivers. With no structure or safety devices protecting them, they risk severe injuries in an accident. If you or a loved one has been hurt by an inattentive or reckless driver, it is important to have an attorney looking out for your interests and pursuing the full compensation you deserve for medical expenses, pain and suffering, lost wages, and other damages.

For more than 25 years, the attorneys at Isenberg & Hewitt, PC, have been standing up for victims of negligence in Atlanta. We will work closely with you to make sure you understand your rights and then pursue a settlement or verdict that provides for your needs now and in the future.

Georgia Pedestrian Accident Statistics

According to the Governor's Office of Highway Safety in Georgia:

  • At least 130 pedestrians were killed in traffic crashes every year between 1994 and 2011.
  • Pedestrian fatalities typically account for between 9 and 13 percent of all traffic-related fatalities in Georgia each year.
  • The highest percentage of traffic fatalities, including those involving pedestrians, occur in Fulton County, DeKalb County and Gwinnett County.

These Georgia-specific facts align with data from across the nation that show how deadly pedestrian accidents can be. For example, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention notes that 47 percent of pedestrian accidents (nationwide) where alcohol was involved resulted in the death of pedestrians.
