An empty city crosswalkGeorgia pedestrian accidents can occur in a variety of different locations, from parking lots and parking garages to sidewalks and crosswalks. In many instances, these accidents occur because a motor vehicle driver operates a vehicle in a careless or reckless manner, striking the pedestrian and causing him or her to fall and suffer injures.

Since pedestrians do not have an outer shell or covering around them, upon impact, they are likely to strike the ground violently and can suffer broken bones, traumatic head injuries, soft tissue injuries, and spinal cord injuries.
