Pedestrian Accidents in South Carolina

Ladson, SC - Pedestrian Hit by Driver at US-78 & Mason Pond Road

According to the standards of established research, the number of pedestrians who were murdered in South Carolina over the period of 2008-2017 places the state in tenth place among the states in the United States. When compared to the national average of 1.55 pedestrian fatalities per 100,000 persons, South Carolina had a substantially higher rate of 2.37 pedestrian fatalities per year on average for every 100,000 individuals in the state.

When a car accident results in catastrophic injuries, the negligent drivers and their insurance companies will often attempt to escape blame and reduce the amount of money they have to pay out. Because of this, the victim and their family are left to cope with expensive medical bills and other forms of financial stress and pressure.
