Clayton County, GA – Fatal Pedestrian Accident Shuts Down Portion of Highway 138

Clayton County, GA (December 21, 2022) – Officials from Clayton County requested on Wednesday, December 21 that motorists steer clear of the area around Highway 138 and Chase Wood Road. 

This request was made because a vehicle-pedestrian accident with a fatality had occurred shutting down that stretch of the road. 

No more details regarding the injuries or number of victims has been reveled. 

Additional information and details into this incident are still pending. 


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 pose a significant danger. They are typically more serious than other types of accidents because a car can cause significant damage to an unprotected person even when the car is moving slowly. This makes pedestrian accidents more likely to result in fatalities. Nearly all accidents involving pedestrians result in injuries, and a significant number of them result in wrongful deaths.

Collisions involving pedestrians are investigated and handled in the same manner as collisions involving motor vehicles. Accident victims and their family members have the legal right to pursue financial compensation for any losses that were incurred as a direct result of the accident that they were involved in.

Despite the fact that they typically have the right of way, pedestrians are occasionally held accountable for accidents. Even if they sustained severe injuries as a result of the collision, pedestrians who cross the street illegally, unexpectedly, and without warning may be partially or entirely at fault for the collision.

If it is determined that the pedestrian was the one who caused the accident, the driver of the car may be entitled to compensation for the costs that he or she incurred as a result of the accident, such as the cost of having the car repaired. 

Whenever there is a collision between a pedestrian and a vehicle, it is typically determined that the driver of the vehicle was at least partially responsible for the collision. This is due to the fact that motorists have a responsibility to keep an eye out for pedestrians and to make way for them whenever it is required.
