Dalzell, SC - Pedestrian Hurt in Hit-&-Run at Kings Hwy & Scales Rd

The number of hit-and-run crashes and fatalities is increasing year over year according to the most recent statistics. In 2015, more than 737,100 hit-and-run crashes were reported nationwide. A hit-and-run accident happens every 43 seconds somewhere within the United States. In 2016, 2,049 persons were killed in hit-and-run incidents. This is the highest number ever recorded.

Pedestrians are among the most vulnerable road users because they lack seat belts, airbags, helmets, and other safety features. Many drivers of automobiles and trucks simply do not look for or see pedestrians in our car-centered society, and many are ignorant of or simply disregard local rules requiring them to yield to pedestrians attempting to cross a roadway. For the pedestrian, this might result in catastrophic injury or death.

Few individuals anticipate being badly hurt in a pedestrian accident, yet thousands of pedestrians are harmed every year throughout the state and need legal help to collect damages. A lawyer is advised since many wounded parties are unclear about how to obtain justice for their injuries following an accident.
