Pedestrian Accidents in Bishopville, SC

Our Bishopville Pedestrian Accident Attorneys at the Strom Law Firm are familiar with litigating South Carolina personal injury cases. They can often help victims recover substantially more compensation than they would be able to retain on their own, so it is highly advisable for anyone injured in an accident to discuss their options with one of our Bishopville Wrongful Death Attorneys.

From Main Street and Church Street to West College Street, Bishopville has become more pedestrian-friendly over the past decade. Across the country, it is estimated that over four thousand pedestrians are killed annually, and around seventy thousand are injured. These are daunting statistics. Bishopville’s annual tourists create even higher foot traffic around town, leading to a vehicle versus pedestrian accidents. Such accidents can result in severe injury and death to the unfortunate pedestrian accident victims.

Bishopville Pedestrian Accident AttorneyWhat are the causes of a vehicle versus pedestrian accidents?

Unfortunately, the majority of pedestrian accidents are caused by a driver’s negligent inattention. In today’s world, technology creates many distractions for drivers — texting and emailing, selecting music or podcasts, satellite navigation, climate control, and any other of the many things displayed on a phone or other screen within the vehicle. Sometimes the focus on punctuality or even just deep thought can distract a driver. Bishopville drivers who become distracted may:

  • Run a stop sign or traffic light
  • Turn into a pedestrian who has the right of way.
  • Fail to see a pedestrian who is crossing the road
  • Run off of the road and strike a pedestrian on a sidewalk
  • Drive under the influence
  • Speed through intersections

If you have been victimized by a vehicle versus pedestrian accident and suspect distracted driving may have been the cause, contact our lawyers today.

Where do pedestrian accidents usually occur?

Surprisingly, the vast majority of pedestrian deaths occur at locations other than intersections. Often, motorists do not realize that they need to be aware of pedestrians at all times and in all places where cars are driven. Pedestrians are struck in parking garages, parking lots, on stretches of road that do not have sidewalks, on sidewalks, crossing streets with no intersection, and many more locations.

How much harm can be caused by vehicle-pedestrian accidents?

As you would expect, walkers and runners who have been hit by cars and trucks frequently suffer severe injuries and often death. Pedestrians have virtually no protection against an errant vehicle. Pedestrians are among the most vulnerable victims of automobile accidents and bus accidents. In the case of bicyclist or motorcycle accidents, riders usually have on helmets. The 3,000 pound plus difference between a motor vehicle and a human being causes significant injury in the case of an accident. Such injuries often include:

The Right Steps to Take Following a Bishopville Pedestrian Accident

You can never fully plan for the disturbance caused by being struck by a car or bus while walking down the road. But you can understand the essential steps you should take after an accident to protect you or your loved one’s rights and finances. Those steps are as follows:

Get The Medical Care You Need

Regardless of the amount of pain or discomfort after a Bishopville pedestrian-vehicle accident, always seek medical care. The symptoms of many injuries appear slowly, but a physician can often quickly diagnose hidden injuries. Furthermore, seeing a doctor as soon as possible ensures that proper records are kept of any injuries for future insurance claims or litigation.

Do Not Speak To Insurance Adjusters or Their Lawyers

Most insurance companies will try and speak with you to settle your claim against the driver. Never speak with these companies. You should always have your accident reviewed by a personal injury lawyer before settling. Many insurance companies will attempt to take advantage of a pedestrian accident victim’s frantic and confused states of mind immediately following an accident.

What Our Clients Say

They truly care
Mrs Vallery, who answered the phone took more care and attention to detail than any other law office, that I have called, in 2 years+. She diligently took notes to give to the lawyers and cared about my situation and let me actually tell everything without cutting me short. Out of over 100 law offices, this is rare treatment. Care. Consideration. That means more than anything going through this…

From Self-Representation to Victory in SSDI Case!
My experience with Mario and his staff was outstanding. When everyone said to give up my case with SSDI and after being poorly represented and losing. I had to file my own appeals and represent myself. I literally called every attorney in the book. Then I called Mario cold – I expected one more no! Well, this gentleman took my case and won. He knows the law and cares a lot. I am proud to call him my friend. If you need a professional to help you, call these guys.

A Lifesaver in the Courtroom, Ensuring Freedom with A1 Professionalism
Needed a lifesaver. I had gotten myself into a bad situation and the possibility of going to prison. Through the diligence and hard work done by attorney Alley B., I was able to walk out of that courtroom a free man. No tricks just hard down attorney work. She was an A1 professional and knew every inch of the Law pertaining to my case. For that, I am forever grateful.
