Atlanta, GA – 1-Year-Old Run Over and Killed In Driveway of Family Home
Atlanta, Georgia (March 24, 2023) – According to Georgia authorities, a 1-year-old was accidentally run over and killed in the driveway of an Atlanta-area home.
According to the Floyd County Police Department, officers were called just before 5:30 p.m. on Thursday, March 23, about a vehicle accident involving a small child.
According to investigators, the child’s mother was babysitting for a friend and was assisting in loading the child into the friend’s car. Her 1-year-old accidentally wandered behind the vehicle and was hit as the friend backed out of the driveway.
Officers arrived to find the child unresponsive, according to a police press release. He was taken to the hospital but passed away due to his injuries.
Additional information was not immediately available.
According to police, no charges are expected.
I met with Harry Brown personally and he sat with me for 20 minutes at our initial consultation to explain everything. He even called after my surgery to see how I was doing. I met with him several more times after that and was kept informed about my case throughout. I highly recommend Harry Brown as an attorney.
Pedestrian Accidents in Georgia
Accidents involving pedestrians are extremely dangerous. They are typically more severe than other accidents because a car can harm an unprotected person severely even at a slow speed. The likelihood of pedestrian fatalities increases as a result. Almost all accidents involving pedestrians result in injuries, and many of them result in wrongful deaths.
Pedestrian accidents are investigated and handled in the same way that car accidents are. Accident victims and their families are legally entitled to seek monetary compensation for any losses incurred as a result of the accident.
Despite having the right of way, pedestrians are occasionally held liable for accidents. Pedestrians who cross the street illegally, unexpectedly, and without warning may be partially or entirely to blame, even if they suffer severe injuries as a result of the collision.
If the pedestrian caused the collision, the driver of the car may be entitled to compensation for accident-related expenses such as car repair costs.
When a vehicle hits a pedestrian, the driver is almost always found to be at least partially at fault. This is due to the fact that drivers are responsible for keeping an eye out for pedestrians.
