Pedestrian injured in crash involving stolen car in Atlanta

Car accidents are a regrettable fact of life in Georgia, with several cars and trucks colliding every day somewhere in the state. Many of these collisions are minor, with only small amounts of damage that can be easily repaired. But even minor collisions can be deadly when people are not protected by the frames of cars and trucks.

People traveling on foot and by bicycle are at special risk on the roads and streets of the Peach State. Much like motorcycle riders, pedestrians and bicyclists have no protection against the speed and force of moving cars and trucks, so even a seemingly small incident can cause severe injury or even death.

A sedan was stolen in Atlanta on a recent afternoon and the driver caused several problems before the situation was resolved. Police attempted a traffic stop, but the driver refused to obey and sped away. The car later crossed a median into opposing traffic, striking two vehicles before slamming into the wall of a restaurant.

A man standing nearby was struck by the car and seriously injured. He was transported to a local hospital for care while law enforcement authorities investigate the nature of the crash. Police stated that pursuit of the car was too dangerous after the failed traffic stop, resulting in several cruisers standing down.

Regardless of criminal charges that may be applied to the driver of the car, victims of this accident and others like it have the right to claim financial damages to help with medical recovery and other related costs. A lawyer may prove instrumental to a claim in civil court, representing a victim's interests and standing up for what they deserve.
