We Help Injured Pedestrians Tell Their Story

When a car strikes a pedestrian, the police officer responding to the scene typically hears the motorist tell his version of how the accident happened. The pedestrian may be too injured to say anything. As a result, the police often hear a one-sided view of how an accident happened.

Whether you were injured or you lost a loved one in a pedestrian accident, you can turn to us for compassion and legal guidance during this difficult time.

Please contact us to discuss your case with a Charleston pedestrian accidents attorney.

We Conduct Painstaking Investigations To Help Maximize Your Claim

Motorists often blame pedestrians for accidents. For example, the motorist may claim that the pedestrian crossed outside of a crosswalk or against a traffic control device. It may take painstaking investigation to determine what really happened.

As pedestrian, you have the right of way at crosswalks, whether the crosswalk is marked or not and even if it is located somewhere other than an intersection. If you crossed outside of a crosswalk, the motorist may be responsible if he or she could have or should have seen you. For example, if a driver did not see you because he or she was talking or texting on a cellphone, the driver may be liable. As long as you are not 50 percent at fault or greater, you can still recover compensation for damages.

If you have been struck by a car, it's important to contact a lawyer as soon as possible. The sooner you contact us, the sooner we can take steps to protect your rights.
