Deadly Pedestrian Accidents in South Carolina
South Carolina is the sixth-deadliest state for pedestrians killed in automobile accidents, according to 2019 research by the Governor’s Highway Safety Association. The outcomes are based on preliminary information from the first half of 2018. In South Carolina, there are 1.46 pedestrian fatalities in road incidents for every 100,000 individuals, according to the research.
Automobile collisions can be extremely dangerous, but at least the passengers in the car are protected from the elements. When you are a pedestrian, the only protection you typically have is whatever obstructions are in the path of the vehicle you are in. A person who is unprotected cannot stand a chance against a car, truck, or any other kind of motor vehicle.
The sudden death of a family member or close friend is one of the most trying experiences a family can go through. When another person’s carelessness or irresponsibility led to the occurrence of this loss, the magnitude of that loss may be compounded. Even though there is no way that this tragedy can ever be made up for, it is possible that witnessing justice being done can provide you and your family with a much-needed feeling of closure.
