Fatal Pedestrian Accidents in South Carolina
Fatal accidents in South Carolina take the lives of countless people annually. Pedestrians who are involved in accidents are more likely to suffer severe and fatal injuries due to the fact that they have no protection during accidents. The unfortunate truth is that we see thousands of pedestrians across the country die every year following vehicle collisions. Many of these accidents take place due to reckless and negligent drivers.
Far too often, innocent pedestrians lose their lives in accidents caused by drivers who are under the influence, speeding, or otherwise reckless and negligent while behind the wheel. Losing a loved one is an unimaginable tragedy, and seeking justice may be the last thing on your mind. However, it is important to remember that taking legal action can provide some form of closure and ensure that the negligent party is held accountable for their actions.
