According to the National Highway Traffic Saftey Administration, between 2000 and 2009, 1,545 people were killed while walking in Georgia. This accounted for almost 10% of the people killed in all car accidents. Pedestrian accidents occur because automobile drivers are not alert in looking out for pedestrians.
Pedestrian accidents frequently result in catastrophic injury, permanent disability, even death. Victims and their families often face tremendous physical, emotional, and financial hardships. Georgia law requires us to maintain liability automobile insurance coverage. The minimum requirements for bodily injury liability insurance coverage in Georgia are $25,000.00 per person and $50,000.00 per accident. Sometimes these limits may be insufficient to cover the claim of an injured person. This requires investigation into what other insurance is available to the responsible driver or the extent of the driver's personal assets.
