Common Causes And Factors In Atlanta Pedestrian Accidents

Pedestrian accidents happen for many reasons. Some of the most common causes and factors include distracted driving, intoxicated driving, and speeding. After an accident, drivers often report that they failed to see pedestrians when backing out of a parking spot or driving through an intersection.

When pursuing a pedestrian accident claim, our attorneys thoroughly investigate the accident and preserve important evidence, such as the driver’s cell phone records, witness statements, and police reports. To support a personal injury claim, it is critical to collect evidence that demonstrates how the accident happened, who was at fault, and the extent of injuries sustained.

Wrongful Death And Estate Claims

In addition to representing injured pedestrians, we also represent family members who have lost loved ones in pedestrian accidents. Depending on the unique facts and circumstances of each case, certain surviving family members may be entitled to compensation under a wrongful death claim. Wrongful death compensation is based on the full value of the decedent’s life.

Under some circumstances, the administrator of the decedent’s estate might have a claim against the responsible party for the benefit of the estate. Compensation in estate claims typically covers expenses, such as funeral costs. If the decedent survived for an amount of time after the accident, compensation may also be recovered for the decedent’s pain, suffering, and any accident-related medical bills.
