When Can a Victim Get Compensation After an Atlanta Pedestrian Accident?

A victim of a pedestrian accident can get compensation after a pedestrian accident in Atlanta if the victim can show:

  • A driver, or any person or company, was responsible for causing the accident as a result of negligence or carelessness.
  • The pedestrian accident caused actual damages, such as loss of income, medical expenses, and pain.

Proving negligence or carelessness can sometimes be complicated, but it’s what we do.  If the crash victim can show a driver failed to follow rules of the road, such as following a requirement to yield to pedestrians at crosswalks or to stop at red lights, this failure creates the presumption the driver’s negligence caused the crash.

Even if no clear rules of the road were broken, a pedestrian could still make a successful accident claim by showing that a reasonably careful driver wouldn’t have made the driving choice that led to the pedestrian collision.

Pedestrians may also sometimes pursue cases against car manufacturers when vehicle defects resulted in the pedestrian being hit.  Some cases may warrant a claim against those in charge of road design or maintenance if their failures caused a pedestrian crash to happen.  Pedestrian accident lawyers help victims to discover who can be held accountable under Georgia law.

What Compensation is Available for Pedestrian Accident Injuries in Atlanta?

Pedestrian accident victims are often severely hurt or even killed when hit by a car.  An injured pedestrian or his family should be made whole following a pedestrian crash, which means fully compensated.

The right to be made whole means a plaintiff in a pedestrian accident case should be entitled to compensation for:

  • Actual damages, such as costs incurred for medical treatment, for funeral expenses, for missed work, or for an ongoing loss in earnings due to injuries or death.
  • Compensatory damages, such as compensation for emotional distress, pain and discomfort, and lost companionship.

Victims will need to demonstrate the extent of loss in order to maximize the chances they will be fully paid for all damages. Glass & Robson helps victims to show insurance companies or courts how badly they were harmed.
