Pedestrian & Cyclist Injuries in Traffic Accidents
Pedestrians and bicyclists are often referred to as “non-occupants” in traffic accident statistic reports. This term sounds impersonal, but it is accurate. Children and adults who are walking down the street or are riding bicycles, skateboards, or scooters are completely exposed to injury if they are struck by motor vehicles. While the occupants of a car or truck may walk away from an accident relatively unscathed, non-occupants like pedestrians and cyclists may sustain catastrophic or fatal injuries.
The following injuries may be sustained by a bicyclist or pedestrian in a traffic accident:
- Broken bones
- Internal bleeding
- Organ damage
- Traumatic brain injuries
- Spinal cord injuries
- Severe contusions and abrasions
- Traumatic amputation
Is it Illegal to Walk on the Interstate in Georgia?
In Georgia, it is illegal to walk in or along interstates. Pedestrians have tried to cross interstates before and it has lead to their deaths, so it is unwise to try crossing an interstate.
