Atlanta Personal Injury Attorney – If I am hit by a car while crossing the street, is the driver automatically at fault?

Not always. In fact, there are many circumstances where an accident is caused by the pedestrian’s failure to obey the law and cross the street safely. If a pedestrian crosses the street unlawfully, such as walking through an intersection during a “don’t walk” signal, or crosses the street at an area other than a designated crosswalk, a vehicle driver cannot always be blamed for the accident. Pedestrians can’t just cross the street wherever and whenever they want.

  • Awesome Lawyer and very helpful!

  • Mr. Wilson is truly a very good person who cares about people. I understand he selected this career but I do know he makes many sacrifices to help he’s clients. I am very grateful to have had him as my attorney and if I ever have to use one again (hopefully not) it will be Mr. Wilson.

  • He worked with me. He told me everything. He called me. He gave me all the information.

  • He will be my family lawyer from now until the end because I can trust him.

  • He's just a great guy.

  • He always calls you right back and even if it's on the weekend - he's going to call you back.
