Fighting for the most vulnerable users on Atlanta’s dangerous streets isn’t just about being a good personal injury lawyer, being an experienced litigator or having a successful law practice. It takes more than standing up to the insurance companies and defending clients in court.
It’s about fighting to prevent traffic fatalities and severe injuries. In 2019, Atlanta has witnessed 44 traffic fatalities and 22 of these crashes involved motor vehicles and the other 22 involved pedestrians, bicycles, scooters, and mopeds. Atlanta is still learning how to incorporate e-scooter riders, e-bikes and other forms of light individual transportation (LIT) devices.
We are at a crucial crossroads and this is the time to get involved, advocate and demand our local leaders and politicians make our streets safe for everyone. Watch Bruce A. Hagen address Atlanta City Council members at the Mobility and Safety Town Hall Meeting held yesterday at City Hall.
