During the past several years my office has helped several people who were injured while walking or crossing the street. When a pedestrian is hit by a car serious injuries or death can result, even at low or moderate speeds. Pedestrian injury cases are unique in two main respects. The first is that there is a unique statutory duty of good faith owed by the driver of the vehicle. The second is that while in a significant number of these cases some responsibility for the accident may actually rest with the pedestrian, under South Carolina law this is not a bar to recovery.
To receive more information about your right to recover for injuries as the result of any automobile accident please contact the
Law Office of James R. Snell, Jr., LLC, at (803) 359-3301. There is no charge to have your case reviewed by my office.
