Pedestrians

Experienced Injury Attorneys in Hilton Head Island and Bluffton

Last year there were more pedestrian struck by cars on the roadways in Hilton Head Island and Bluffton than in any year prior.  As the area grows in both population and popularity, there are more pedestrians and automobiles on the roadways.  Unfortunately, not all drivers pay attention for pedestrians.  Texting while driving remains a significant problem despite new laws that prohibit it.  Visitors are often distracted from driving by the beautiful Low Country scenery.  No matter the cause, injuries to pedestrians are on the rise. 

In South Carolina, all drivers have a statutory duty to keep a lookout for pedestrians.  Drivers must take careful caution in allowing pedestrians to use crosswalks and marked pathways.  Drivers breaking the speed limit is a recurrent cause of pedestrian injuries in Hilton Head Island and Bluffton. And although pedestrians sometimes make mistakes, the vast majority of injuries are caused by negligent drivers.  Unfortunately, many  accidents result in severe injuries and/or death.
