Pedestrian Accidents

Beaufort County Pedestrian Accident Lawyers 

Experienced Injury Attorneys at Your Service

Last year, there were more pedestrians 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 to 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 be careful in allowing pedestrians to use crosswalks and marked pathways. Drivers breaking the speed limit frequently cause pedestrian injuries in this area. 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. 

In the most despicable circumstances, "hit & run" drivers leave the accident scene while pedestrians lie injured on the roadside.
