Skilled Pedestrian Accident Attorneys Representing Clients Throughout Georgia
At Ashby Thelen Lowry, our Georgia pedestrian collision lawyers know that when someone is struck by a vehicle while on foot, their lives change dramatically going forward. Pedestrian crashes are inherently catastrophic, as the person standing, walking, or jogging during impact has extraordinarily little protection against a two-ton vehicle.

We can help. We have managed pedestrian crash cases before with great success and will pursue the same positive outcome for your case, too. We will work to gather witnesses, police statements, and security camera footage to see that you or your loved one gets the justice they deserve.
We know you are anxious, overwhelmed, frustrated, and exhausted by your injuries, or the tragic loss of your loved one to negligence.
You need someone you can trust. We have traveled this path with other families and have a great reputation in the industry. We have earned our clients’ trust with hard work, frequent communication, and expertise. We can provide the same exceptional legal advice, guidance, and representation for you and your family, starting with a free case review.
What are the Most Common Causes of Pedestrian Accidents, Injuries, and Fatalities in Georgia?
Throughout the U.S., one pedestrian is killed every 81 minutes, every day, in traffic collisions, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.
In fact, 17% of all traffic fatalities across the nation are pedestrians.
Much closer to home, the Georgia Governor’s Office of Highway Safety reported 306 pedestrian fatalities alone throughout the state last year.
The reality is, even when pedestrians are following all traffic signs and signals, using crosswalks, and looking both ways before crossing the road, negligent drivers can still collide with them, causing significant injuries that change their lives, or the tragic loss of life.
Some of the most frequent causes of pedestrian crashes in Georgia include, but are not limited to:
- Distracted driving.
- Drivers disregard traffic patterns.
- Driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs.
- Failing to check for pedestrians before entering, exiting, or reversing in parking lots or structures.
- Failing to obey traffic signs and signals.
- Failing to stop or yield at a pedestrian right of way, including crosswalks.
- Fatigued driving.
- Making improper turns.
- Speeding or reckless driving.

Why Makes Georgia Pedestrian Accident Injuries So Severe?
The obvious reason pedestrian collisions result in catastrophic injuries is that the vehicle is so much larger than the person the negligent driver collides with. Other reasons may include the potential for the injured party to be trapped against a structure, or underneath the vehicle when it comes to the stop.
The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) reported that over 104,000 people sought emergency medical for non-fatal, pedestrian crash injuries last year across the country.
The CDC’s records listed the most reported pedestrian collision injuries to include:

Chances are, if you were injured in a pedestrian collision in Georgia, your recovery is going to require long-term medical care and extended time away from work to fully heal.
