South Carolina Deadly Pedestrian Accidents

Simpsonville, SC - Man Killed in Pedestrian Crash on Harrison Bridge Rd

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

There are many factors that have led to the increased rate of deadly pedestrian crashes. Distracted driving has become a serious safety concern in South Carolina, but it’s not the only factor involved in pedestrian crashes. The state has one of the highest pedestrian fatality rates in the country. Our personal injury lawyers in Simpsonville know that the majority of these accidents are caused by driver distraction, intoxication, or general negligence behind the wheel.
