Child struck while crossing the street in southern Georgia

Drivers and passengers are not the only people on the road who may be at risk due to careless or reckless driving. Pedestrians and bicyclists are everywhere, especially in built-up areas like suburbs, towns and cities. And they have far fewer protections in the case of a collision.

What should you do after a hit-and-run accident?

Imagine you're struck by a speeding driver and your car goes out of control and into a ditch. You're seriously hurt with a broken leg, and as you watch the driver who caused the accident zoom away, you realize that with that driver goes your chances of holding him accountable for the crash.

If you're a frequent bicyclist and you don't know the term "dooring accident," then it's time to learn about this extremely dangerous type of collision. It happens like this: A bicyclist is traveling down the road or sidewalk, and there's a line of cars parallel parked along the side of the road. Unbeknownst to the bicyclist, someone is inside one of these cars and about to open his door.

What drivers should do to keep cyclists safe

Drivers and cyclists are supposed to share the road. This can be a bit daunting to cyclists, however, as they're in far more danger if either party makes a mistake that leads to an accident. Moreover, many drivers don't know exactly what they're supposed to do to share the road.

Risk factors of being involved in a pedestrian accident

It's a shame to think that such a healthful and natural activity like walking would be considered dangerous in this day and age; nevertheless, with Athens roads being more clogged with motor vehicles every day, it's getting more dangerous than ever for people to take to the streets on foot.
