According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), the pedestrian and bicyclist death rates in South Carolina were some of the worst in the entire nation in 2020. As personal injury attorneys with over 75 years of combined experience in Columbia, we have seen injuries of all types, and some of the most devastating, catastrophic injuries that we have seen can come from bicycle or pedestrian accident. If you or someone you love has been injured, or even killed, in a bicycle accident or as a pedestrian that got hit by a car, we can help.
Bike Accidents In South Carolina
According to the NHTSA’s National Survey on Bicyclist and Pedestrian Attitudes and Behaviors, the most common reason for cyclist injuries was getting hit by a car. In South Carolina, a bicycle is considered a vehicle, and a cyclist has responsibilities on the road just like any other motorist. But obviously, a bike on the road is quite different when it comes to size and speed and is at a disadvantage compared to other motor vehicles in an accident, whether a car, a commercial truck or even a motorcycle.
Pedestrian Accidents And Fatalities In South Carolina
According to the NHTSA, there were 187 pedestrian deaths in 2020, which accounted for 18% of traffic accident fatalities in South Carolina, and the state was fourth in the nation for the highest number of pedestrian deaths. The injuries that a pedestrian suffers when getting hit by a car or truck can be catastrophic and deadly. If you or someone you love has been severely injured or even killed, you may have a claim for damages and, quite possibly, a wrongful death case. There is a grave injustice when someone suffers devastating injuries or loses their life due to someone else’s negligence. Our personal injury attorneys at Koon Cook & Walters, LLC, fight for justice on behalf of injured clients.
