Helping Pedestrian Accident Victims in Savannah
At Jamie Casino Injury Attorneys, we understand the devastating impact that pedestrian accidents can have on individuals and their families. Pedestrians are among the most vulnerable road users, and when they are involved in accidents, the consequences can be severe, often resulting in life-altering injuries or even fatalities. If you or a loved one have been injured in a pedestrian accident in Savannah or anywhere in Georgia, our experienced team of personal injury lawyers is here to help you fight for the justice and compensation you deserve.
One of the key aspects of building a successful pedestrian accident case is gathering and preserving evidence. Our team of skilled investigators will meticulously analyze the accident scene, review police reports, interview witnesses, and consult with accident reconstruction experts if necessary. We leave no stone unturned in our pursuit of the truth to determine liability and establish the negligence of the responsible party.
Duty to Exercise Reasonable Care in Georgia
Both drivers and pedestrians have a duty to exercise reasonable care on the road. Drivers must be vigilant, adhere to speed limits, avoid distractions, and yield the right-of-way to pedestrians. Pedestrians must also exercise caution, use crosswalks when available, and not suddenly dart into traffic.
Right-of-Way in Georgia
Georgia law generally requires drivers to yield the right-of-way to pedestrians in crosswalks. Pedestrians have the right-of-way if they are within a crosswalk, or if they are crossing the road at an intersection where there is no marked crosswalk. Drivers must exercise due care to avoid colliding with pedestrians.
Pedestrians are generally expected to use crosswalks when available and obey traffic signals and pedestrian control signals. However, even if a pedestrian is not using a crosswalk, drivers still have a duty to exercise due care to avoid colliding with them.
Jaywalking refers to pedestrians crossing the road in an unauthorized or unsafe manner. In Georgia, jaywalking is not specifically defined as an offense, but pedestrians are expected to use crosswalks when available. However, drivers still have a responsibility to exercise caution and avoid colliding with jaywalking pedestrians.
Georgia Contributory Negligence Laws
Georgia follows a modified comparative negligence system. This means that if both the pedestrian and the driver are partially at fault for an accident, the injured pedestrian's ability to recover damages may be reduced based on their percentage of fault. If the pedestrian is found to be 50% or more at fault, they may be barred from recovering any damages.
