Compensation for Pedestrian Accident Victims

  • Pedestrian accident victims may have the right to compensation.
  • An injured victim may receive compensation for economic losses, like medical bills and lost income, as well as non-economic damages for personal losses.
  • Fault may be based on negligence. A traffic error like failing to stop for a crosswalk can be the basis for compensation. The injury doesn’t have to be intentional.
  • Pedestrians are covered by South Carolina accident law. If someone else causes the accident and injuries, the injured pedestrian may qualify to receive a payment.

Common Causes of Pedestrian Accidents Around Greenville

A pedestrian accident is any collision involving a motor vehicle and a person who is not in a motor vehicle at the time of the crash. It may include a person on foot, a bicycle, or even on a horse.

Here are some circumstances where a driver may be at fault for a pedestrian accident:

  • Turning in front of a pedestrian in a crosswalk
  • Not leaving enough distance to stop at an intersection
  • Driving too close to the sidewalk or side of the road
  • Ignoring pedestrian crossings
  • Trying to drive around a vehicle waiting for a pedestrian
  • Using poor judgment in driving when there are many people on foot in an area
  • Not looking behind when backing up
  • Hitting the gas instead of the brakes
  • Road rage, intentional harm

These are the immediate causes of pedestrian collisions, but there are underlying causes, too. Distracted driving, alcohol or drugs, bad lighting and weather, poor vehicle maintenance, and other factors may play a role. Attorney Bobby Jones helps you investigate what you need to prove your case.

Who exactly is a pedestrian?

If you’re on foot, you’re a pedestrian.

A person may be a pedestrian in many circumstances:

  • Walking from a parking lot or parking space into a building
  • Commuting to work
  • Going out for a walk or run
  • Enjoying a night on the town or time at a public park
  • Attending a sporting event
  • A delivery person walking on the side of the road
  • Sitting at a restaurant with outdoor seating

Whatever the circumstances, you expect to be safe as a pedestrian. Whether walking in downtown Greenville, in a busy shopping area, or enjoying one of the many parks in the area, there are many ways a person may be a pedestrian. If an accident occurs, a victim may have the right to compensation.

Pedestrian Accident FAQs

Is the vehicle driver always at fault for a pedestrian accident?

The vehicle driver is usually at fault for a pedestrian accident, but not always. Pedestrians must follow the rules of the road that apply to them. Usually, it’s the driver who acts negligently and causes an accident, but it’s possible for the pedestrian or another party to be at fault, too.

What laws apply to pedestrians in South Carolina?

Parts of the South Carolina Code, Title 56 – Motor Vehicles, Chapter 5, Uniform Act Regulating Traffic on Highways apply to pedestrians. Laws create rules for right-of-way involving pedestrians, crosswalks, and sidewalk use, yielding to pedestrians, and following lawful orders of a police officer.
