South Carolina Deadly Pedestrian Crashes
There are many pedestrian-related accidents and fatalities as a result of the heavy foot traffic on South Carolina’s congested streets and sidewalks. The latest figures show that there were 55,000 pedestrian injuries and 6,516 pedestrian fatalities nationwide in 2020 alone. Being hit by a moving car while on foot increases the likelihood that you will get catastrophic injuries, and those who are hurt may be entitled to seek compensation for their losses.
It is a difficult experience to lose someone you love, but the loss is amplified when the person who was lost passed away as a result of circumstances that were preventable. If something like this happens, the incident may give rise to a wrongful death suit. These are often complicated cases that require the support of a seasoned attorney.
Wrongful deaths could be the result of the carelessness or recklessness of another person. After the death of a family member, the family of the deceased may have grounds to pursue legal action against the responsible party. A lawsuit alleging wrongful death is often complicated for those involved, and it can also be emotionally taxing for the deceased person’s family. That is why it is extremely important to have a trustworthy attorney on your side.
