New walking developments are being advertised all over Atlanta as pedestrian friendly where residents can live, work and play without owning a vehicle. More people are walking the streets of Atlanta than ever and this increased pedestrian traffic places everyone at higher risk for accidents. Drivers or pedestrians could be distracted momentarily and be involved a serious accident. One of the most frequent areas for pedestrian accidents in Atlanta is Buford Highway. The cross walk could be more than a half mile away and pedestrians cross the street to save time or catch the bus. Uninsured motorist coverage will cover pedestrians in the roadway but many pedestrians do not own a vehicle and therefore do not have coverage. It is important so hire an attorney with experience handling pedestrian accidents to get you the deserved compensation.
