Longs, SC - Pedestrian Injured in Crash at SC-9 & Harvest Moon Dr

In the United States, pedestrian fatalities are on the rise, with a nearly 10% increase in 2015. In the event of a car accident, a pedestrian has little protection, which means they are more likely to suffer life-threatening injuries. In 2015, there were 5,376 pedestrian fatalities in the United States. A pedestrian was killed every 1.6 hours on average across the country that year, with a pedestrian injury every 7.5 minutes.

A pedestrian is at a significant disadvantage in a collision with a motor vehicle and is more likely to suffer life-threatening injuries. As a result, pedestrian fatalities have increased significantly across the country. Pedestrians, unlike car passengers, are subjected to the full force of a collision. It’s possible that the injuries sustained will be fatal as a result of this. Pedestrians must be given the right of way and drivers must share the road with them. If they fail to do so, they may be held liable under state law. After being struck by a careless driver, a pedestrian injury lawyer in Longs can help you seek financial compensation for your injuries.
