Crosswalk Accident Lawyer Serving South Carolina
Pedestrians have little to protect them in the event of a collision with a car or truck. Pedestrians often sustain severe and catastrophic injuries, including head injuries, spinal cord injuries and fractures. Many pedestrian accidents occur in intersections, when motorists fail to stop for people walking in crosswalks.
Even a slow traffic crash with a motor vehicle in a parking lot can lead to serious injuries to a pedestrian. Sadly, children often get hit in areas such as playgrounds and schoolyards, where drivers must exercise caution but fail to do so.
If you or someone close to you has been injured as a pedestrian in an accident with a motor vehicle, we are here to stand up for your rights.
