Unsafe Streets in Atlanta, Georgia
Pedestrian accidents have risen to such a level that both the NHTSA and
the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) have launched national efforts
to promote safety and awareness, and Atlanta is a primary area of focus.
Unfortunately, pedestrians continue to feel unsafe when traveling our
streets by foot. In a recent survey, nearly 40% of respondents expected
drivers not to yield them the right-of-way when they are in a crosswalk.
The causes of vehicle-pedestrian accidents are numerous, including:
- Driver inattention or distraction
- Failure to obey traffic signals and / or signs
- Failure to take precautions for bad weather or traffic conditions
- Failure to signal
- Refusing to yield right-of-way at a crosswalk or school bus crossing
Whether you are walking, jogging, hiking, or traveling in a wheelchair,
you have a right to expect that drivers will obey the laws of the road.
If you or a loved one has been the victim of a driver's negligent
actions, The Weinstein Firm, LLC can provide the zealous representation
you need to receive maximum compensation for your injuries.
