PROVIDING LEGAL HELP FOR INJURED PEDESTRIANS IN CHARLESTON, SOUTH CAROLINA

When you are a pedestrian, you are defenseless to protect yourself from serious injury in an accident. You are sharing the road with speeding, heavy motor vehicles while hoping that drivers around you take appropriate care to ensure your safety. It can only take a second for you to be at risk of a serious injury from a motor vehicle: if a driver takes his eyes off the road to read a text message, a driver not checking before reversing, or a driver speeding around a corner.

Unfortunately, recently there has been an alarming and unprecedented increase in pedestrian accident deaths. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration traffic fatality data showed a general decline in the number of pedestrian fatalities from 1994 through 2009. Since 2009 however, pedestrian fatalities have trended up sharply. In 2005, pedestrian fatalities accounted for 10.9% of all traffic fatalities but in 2018 pedestrians accounted for 17.2% of all traffic deaths. In 2017, alcohol impairment was a factor in 41% of all pedestrian fatalities accounting for 2,368 deaths nationwide.  According to the national Governors Highway Safety Association there were an estimated 6,227 pedestrian accident deaths in 2018.
