Our Personal Injury Lawyers Will Pursue What You Need and Deserve
Drivers have a duty to watch for pedestrians. O.C.G.A. § 40-6-91, in fact, requires drivers to “stop and remain stopped to allow a pedestrian to cross the roadway” when the pedestrian is in or approaching a shared crosswalk.
Because pedestrians must also follow certain rules of the road, a negligent driver — or their insurance company that does not want to pay a large settlement — might allege that you were partially at fault for causing the accident.
According to O.C.G.A. § 51-12-33, Georgia’s contributory negligence law could decrease any financial award you receive (or bar you from compensation at all). Our personal injury team’s familiarity with state and local law can protect you from this costly consequence by proving the at-fault driver’s actions caused the accident.
We Will Explain the At-Fault Driver’s Responsibility
When we handle your case’s details, we conduct a thorough investigation that leads to the compensation you need and deserve. We start by listening to your version of events. Then, we will prove the at-fault driver’s:
- Duty of care
- Breach of duty
To establish these elements, our evidence collection will include the police report, witness statements, and footage from dashcams, traffic cams, surveillance cams, and smartphones. We also gather evidence that proves the cost of treating your injuries and the costs that stem from the recovery process.
We Track and Document Your Recoverable Damages
A pedestrian accident in College Park can lead to serious injuries, a plethora of costly medical care, and an increasing number of additional financial expenses and losses. Part of representing you is ensuring your damages are accurately tracked and calculated.
Our pedestrian accident lawyers will seek:
- Current and future medical bills
- Current and future income loss
- Current and future pain and suffering
- Mental and emotional trauma
- Physical impairments and disfigurement
At Kaine Law, we make sure the total cost of the accident is known before beginning any settlement talks. We also make sure your evidence file contains the documents and evidence it needs to foster an effective case for compensation.

We Make Sure Your Potential Lawsuit Is Filed on Time
When you sue an at-fault driver after an accident, the state decides how much time you have to do so. In Georgia, the state generally limits your right to file a personal injury lawsuit to two years, according to O.C.G.A. § 9-3-33. This time period is called the “statute of limitations,” and it can be more complex than you think.
Some factors that can change your allotted filing time include:
- The age of the injured victim
- The actions of the at-fault driver
- The identity of the at-fault driver
You generally only have six months to file a case against a government agency or municipality, according to O.C.G.A. § 36-33-5. With sufficient notice from you, we will ensure the appropriate filing deadline is met.
