    Common Injuries Sustained by the Victims of Pedestrian Accidents

    When pedestrians get into motor vehicle accidents in Georgia, the results are often devastating. It is not unusual for the victims of these collisions to sustain severe injuries that leave them with long-term health issues or permanent disabilities.

    Traumatic Brain Injuries

    When pedestrian accidents cause Georgians to hit their heads against the pavement or another solid object, they often sustain traumatic brain injuries. As a result, they may experience symptoms like:

    • Loss of balance
    • Loss of consciousness
    • Memory loss
    • Seizures
    • Nausea

    These symptoms can last anywhere from a few days to several decades.

    Spinal Cord Injuries

    People who endure trauma to their backs during pedestrian accidents regularly report to the hospital with spinal cord injuries. These injuries are most often associated with symptoms such as:

    • Breathing issues
    • Loss of bladder control
    • Loss of bowel control
    • Numbness
    • Paralysis

    Treating spinal cord injuries is rarely easy. Patients often need to undergo extensive surgery and years of physical therapy.

    Internal Organ Injuries

    When pedestrians get hit by cars in Georgia, their torsos tend to endure a great deal of trauma. As a result, they often sustain injuries to their internal organs. The heart, lungs, liver, and intestines are all among the most frequently damaged organs.

    Facial Disfigurement & Amputations

    Pedestrian accidents in Georgia frequently leave victims with severe injuries such as scars, broken bones, and other forms of facial disfigurement, as well as significant damage to their arms and legs. These injuries can be painful both physically and emotionally. Facial disfigurement is usually treated with a combination of plastic surgery and months of psychiatric care. Unfortunately, if the damage to limbs is too severe and doctors cannot treat it, they are often forced to amputate the limb at the hospital.

We have been handling cases like yours for years, and would be happy to use our experience to help you battle for the compensation you deserve.

    What To Do After a Pedestrian Accident / Next Steps

    1. Accurately Assess Your Damages

    After a pedestrian, bicycle, motorcycle, or car accident in Georgia, it is common for victims to underestimate the medical care they will need and, consequently, demand too little compensation from the at-fault party. This can result in out-of-pocket expenses. To prevent this, the lawyers at The Eichholz Law Firm will review the details of your injury and accurately assess your damages. With our experienced legal team, you can be confident in our assessment.

    2. Gather Evidence to Support Your Case

    To secure the compensation you deserve from your Georgia pedestrian accident lawsuit, you need to prove the following:

    • The other party owed you a duty of care.
    • The other party’s negligence breached that duty of care.
    • The breach of duty caused your injury.
    • Your injury is as debilitating as you claim.

    You will likely need to present evidence such as medical records, police accident reports, traffic camera footage, and witness testimony. Our attorneys, with years of experience, know exactly who to contact to gather this evidence. When you hire us, we will assist you in collecting the necessary materials.

    3. Negotiate with the Other Party’s Insurance Company

    As your pedestrian accident lawsuit progresses, the other party’s insurance company may offer a settlement. If you consider accepting the deal, our team of attorneys will help you negotiate the terms. With extensive experience negotiating with Georgia insurers, we know how to secure more favorable settlements. You can be confident that your interests will be well represented at the negotiating table.
