Deadly Pedestrian Accidents in South Carolina

North Charleston, SC - Daniel Hanf Fatally Hit by Dodge Durango on Ashley Phosphate Rd

The Governor’s Highway Safety Association’s 2019 research ranked South Carolina as the sixth-most hazardous state for pedestrian fatalities in auto accidents. The findings are based on preliminary information from the first half of 2018. In South Carolina, there are 1.46 pedestrian deaths per 100,000 residents, according to the report.

Even while car accidents might be extremely fatal, at least the occupants are protected from the elements. As a pedestrian, your only usual defense is whatever is in the path of the vehicle you are in. Unprotected people have little chance against automobiles, trucks, or other motorized vehicles.

The untimely passing of a relative or close friend is among the saddest experiences a family can have. If the harm was brought on by someone else’s carelessness or negligence, its scope may be enlarged. It’s possible that seeing justice done will give you and your family the much-needed feeling of closure even if this tragedy cannot ever be undone.
