Auto-pedestrian accidents are not uncommon on Georgia roadways. They happen due to a driver’s negligence, but at other times, a pedestrian’s mistake might also cause it. This makes it vital to find the fault party following collisions of this nature.
If the evidence shows that the driver was solely responsible for an auto-pedestrian accident, then they will be liable to the victim for damages. When the victim dies, then the fault driver would compensate their family or estate.
