A vehicle struck a pedestrian Wednesday afternoon, February 27, 2019, leaving one woman injured. According to WSAV.com, “[a vehicle] was traveling north on White Bluff Road, approaching Hampstead Avenue.” The news report suggests “[the driver] observed the pedestrian, identified as Linda Williams, 72, standing by the side of the road, not in a crosswalk.” WTOC.com is reporting “[a] preliminary investigation revealed that the woman walked out in front of the man’s vehicle giving him no opportunity to stop.” The news outlet reports that [Ms. Williams] “was transported to a local hospital with serious injuries.”
The accident is still under investigation according to media outlets.
Our Legal Take
As the details of this incident continue to develop, and if the motor vehicle driver is found to be at fault, Ms. Williams’ may elect to file civil claims for her injuries. Based upon its experience and success handling pedestrian claims in Georgia, The Murray Law Firm suggests that Ms. Williams’ should retain an experienced personal injury firm to protect his interests and ensure an unbiased investigation. Photographs of the roadways involved and a review of surveillance footage from nearby businesses or properties, if any exists, will need to be performed immediately before any evidence is damaged or destroyed.
