Stonecrest, GA – (May 20, 2023) – A man was hit by a car and critically injured while crossing a road in Stonecrest on Saturday night. The DeKalb County police are now looking into the incident.
The accident took place close to Panola Road and Covington Highway. According to officials, the person who struck the victim remained at the scene.

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.

Pedestrian Accidents in Georgia
Pedestrian accidents pose a significant threat. They are usually more serious than other types of accidents because a car can seriously hurt an unprotected person even at a slow speed. As a result, there are more likely to be fatal pedestrian accidents. Nearly all pedestrian accidents result in injuries, and many of them result in wrongful deaths.
Accidents involving pedestrians are investigated and dealt with in a manner similar to those involving vehicles. According to the law, accident victims and their families are entitled to seek monetary damages for any losses incurred as a direct result of the accident.
Despite typically having the right of way, pedestrians are occasionally held responsible 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 was at fault for the collision, the driver of the car might be entitled to compensation for expenses incurred, such as the cost of having the car repaired.
When a vehicle hits a pedestrian, the driver is almost always found to be at least partially at fault. This is because it is the driver’s responsibility to keep an eye out for pedestrians.
