South Carolina Fatal Pedestrian Accidents

Greenville, SC - Pedestrian Dies in Traffic Accident on SC-253

A pedestrian has very little protection in the event of a crash, and this is why they are more likely to suffer life-threatening injuries. There were 5,376 pedestrian deaths in the United States in 2015. According to national statistics, a pedestrian was killed every 1.6 hours on average that year, with a pedestrian injury every 7.5 minutes. Pedestrian fatalities are on the rise in the United States, with a nearly 10% increase in 2015.

If a loved one was killed in a car accident, you should file a wrongful death claim. Many complicated rules govern these types of claims, including who can file a claim and when a wrongful death claim in South Carolina is appropriate. When the at-fault party was the direct cause of the victim’s death, a wrongful death lawsuit is an option. A representative of the deceased should file the claim and attempt to prove the defendant’s negligence with the help of a Greenville car accident lawyer.
