Pedestrian Accidents in South Carolina

Conway, SC - Pedestrian Crash Closes Lanes on SC-544 near Corbett Rd

Because people commonly walk on busy streets and sidewalks, there are many pedestrian-related accidents and fatalities in South Carolina. In 2020, there were 6,516 pedestrian fatalities and 55,000 injuries nationwide, according to the most recent statistics. For obvious reasons, you run a higher risk of receiving major injuries in an accident if you are hit by a car while traveling on foot. 

Many drivers simply do not see or notice pedestrians in our car-centered culture. Many motorists are either ignorant of the local regulations requiring them to yield to pedestrians crossing the street or they prefer to disregard the rules of the road entirely. A collision may cause a pedestrian to endure severe or even fatal injuries.

A pedestrian accident could happen to anyone who is walking on or close to a road. However, some persons are more at risk for danger than others, and some places are more of a risk to travel on foot. If drivers fail to share the road with pedestrians, they should be held accountable for their actions.

According to the most recent accident data, several pedestrian accidents are reported throughout the state each year. To guarantee you receive just compensation, you might require legal representation. We believe that those who have been wounded in auto accidents have a right to a full recovery, and the legal team at Monge & Associates is dedicated to ensuring that you receive the justice you deserve.
