South Carolina Pedestrian Injury Laws

Under South Carolina law, the operator of a vehicle owes a duty of care to pedestrians. The law even makes it clear that this duty is owed to all pedestrians, including children. Around 5,000 pedestrians are killed in vehicle accidents each year, which means that it is a situation that must be given substantial attention. When you contact a Columbia injury lawyer from our firm, you can trust that we will give your case the attention it deserves.

We have successfully recovered settlements for our clients in cases involving:

  • Hit-and-run drivers

  • Uninsured vehicles causing the injury
  • Wrongful death involving intoxication
  • Pedestrians ticketed for the accident
