Pedestrian Accidents

Assisting Victims In Pedestrian Accidents

When we think about injuries people suffer in car wrecks, we often assume that accident victims are occupants of a car, a truck or on board a motorcycle. However, not all victims of motor vehicle accidents in South Carolina are actually in a vehicle at the time of the incident. Pedestrians and bicyclists can be critically injured in crashes as well, leading to time lost at work, expensive medical bills and potentially lifelong chronic pain.

Extensive Experience To Recover Compensation

At Price Law Firm in Greenville, we understand the issues faced by people who have been struck by vehicles and otherwise hurt in road accidents. Our attorneys have extensive experience working to recover compensation for those who have been injured through no fault of their own — people whose lifestyle may be altered temporarily, if not permanently, in order to recover from their injuries.

Safety matters, but it’s not foolproof. Bicyclists need to follow the rules of the road, obeying traffic signs and signals when they ride alongside cars and trucks. Having fully functioning equipment, such as reliable brakes and lights for nighttime riding, are also essential, as are a helmet and other safety gear. Unfortunately, auto-bicycle collisions still can happen, even with all these precautions in place.
