Q: I was using my cell phone when I was hurt in a Georgia pedestrian accident. Can I still recover damages?
A:You may be able to recover damages if the motorist who hit you and who caused your injuries was also negligent. Currently, it is not against the law in Georgia to use a cell phone while walking in a crosswalk. However, any potential defendant in your lawsuit may argue that it was your own negligence that caused your accident injuries.
In order to determine if you may be able to recover damages, an experienced Marietta auto lawyer will thoroughly investigate the cause(s) of your accident and help you get the recovery that you deserve from any potentially liable defendants.
