Tifton- GA – Woman Killed After Being Struck By Vehicle

Tifton, GA (November 2, 2022) – Georgia State Patrol investigated a fatal pedestrian accident in Tifton, GA, late Tuesday night. 

Troopers were called to 20th Street, near Missouri Avenue, after a female pedestrian was struck by a vehicle and killed.

Preliminary information obtained from the Georgia State Patrol says that a Ford Explorer, driven by 86-year-old woman, was traveling west on 20th Street when a female pedestrian attempted to cross the street, travelling into the path of the vehicle.

The Explorer struck the pedestrian, who troopers say was not walking in a crosswalk.

The Tift County Coroner’s Office says that the 51-year-old woman tragically died at the scene of the accident as a result of injuries she sustained when struck by the vehicle. 

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.

Accidents involving pedestrians are extremely dangerous. They are often more serious than other types of accidents because a car can cause so much damage to an unprotected person even when moving slowly. Almost all pedestrian accidents result in injuries, and many result in death. 

The law treats pedestrian accidents in the same way that it does car-on-car collisions. Victims or family members of victims in an accident have the right to seek compensation for their losses.

Even though pedestrians usually have the right of way, they are still sometimes to blame for the accident. Even if they are the ones who sustained the most severe injuries, pedestrians who cross the street illegally or suddenly and without warning may be partially or entirely at fault for the collision.

If the pedestrian is found to be at fault, they may be required to pay the costs incurred by the driver of the car, such as repairs to the vehicle. Because drivers have a responsibility to be watchful and yield to pedestrians, it is typically determined that the driver of the vehicle was at least partially responsible for the accident that occurred with the pedestrian.

If you or a loved one was in a pedestrian accident of any kind, whether you were the pedestrian or the driver, you should contact a reputable Pedestrian Accident Lawyer right away to go over your legal options.
