Car accidents resulting in pedestrian deaths are increasing

Pedestrian accidents, understandably, tend to have severe -- if not fatal -- consequences for the victims. While the human body can withstand a lot if involved in a wreck, when struck by an automobile, the injuries can simply be too much for the body to handle. As the outcomes of pedestrian-involved car accidents are often tragic, it is clear why South Carolina law enforcement officials would like to do more to prevent these incidents from happening, especially since recently released statistics show an increase in pedestrian fatalities.

Injured South Carolina teen sues deceased driver's father

An aspect of our South Carolina law practice is to help clients who have been seriously injured in car accidents. These injuries can occur in the blink of an eye but often have lifelong consequences. Sometimes accident victims assume that their medical treatment or rehabilitation will be covered by their insurance policy or that of another driver, but insurance companies often go to great lengths to minimize payouts and even try to shift blame onto injured parties. In these cases, a personal injury lawsuit may be necessary for an injured person to get the medical care that he or she needs and deserves.
