Atlanta Sees Its Fair Share Of Pedestrian And Bicycle Accidents Every Year

The Atlanta area has a real problem with pedestrian and bicycle accidents. There are too many streets, intersections and other locations that place pedestrians and cyclists in close proximity to motor vehicles.

If you or a loved one suffered injuries in a pedestrian or bicycle accident, the personal injury law firm of Brown Barnwell is here to hear your case and assist you in seeking compensation for your losses.

Why Do Pedestrian And Bicycle Accidents Happen?

When it comes to pedestrian and bicycle accidents, it all comes down to drivers paying attention and exercising due care. While pedestrians and cyclists do have to obey traffic signs, signals and laws on Georgia roadways just as drivers do, drivers are expected to watch their surroundings and not operate their vehicles in a negligent manner.

While some of these incidents seem to be just random freak accidents, most are the result of driver negligence. Our job is to prove that so that you can achieve relief for any resulting damages.

Injuries That Can Change Your Life

The injuries suffered in pedestrian and bicycle accidents can be challenging from which to recover. Common injuries seen in such incidents include:

  • Broken bones
  • Spinal cord injuries
  • Traumatic brain injuries
  • Damaged organs
  • Paralysis

Along with physical injuries, victims also tend to suffer psychological injuries as well. After suffering a personal injury, you may experience depression and post-traumatic stress disorder. Your mental health needs to be treated just as aggressively as your physical health following a pedestrian or bicycle accident in order to help you move forward.
