Experience Matters

A brisk walk on a lovely day can do much for our spirit. But if we aren’t vigilant of our surroundings, a walk around the neighborhood can become deadly in the blink of an eye.

An auto-pedestrian accident can be a traumatic experience for anyone to endure. Because they happen so quickly, remembering the details about the accident can be challenging. To remedy this, our qualified Greenville auto-pedestrian accident attorneys also use witness testimony while securing other forms of solid evidence to help fill in any gaps that your story may contain.

Most times, clients will find that their particular accident happened because of:

  1. Unmarked Crosswalks – Intersections are usually equipped with crosswalk patterns and signals that indicate safe passage for pedestrians to cross the road. You won’t find many of these crosswalks in rural areas, however. These unmarked crosswalk areas can become a hazard for an unknowing pedestrian attempting to cross the road.
  2. Distracted Driving – Distracted driving is a growing problem, with texting while driving being the leading cause of distracted driving traffic accidents. A driver that takes his or her eyes off of the road to check a text can end someone else’s life — and theirs — in seconds.
  3. Distracted Walking – Texting while walking also puts pedestrians at risk. Pedestrians need to remain cautious of their surroundings, even if their phone is away in their pocket. Listening to music with earbuds on can prevent a pedestrian from hearing a vehicle speeding down the road. That lapse of attention can cause severe injuries to a pedestrian if they are not careful.
  4. Left-Hand Turns – A left turn can direct a driver’s focus to oncoming traffic and not a pedestrian crossing the crosswalk. For this very reason, a vehicle performing a left turn is a hazard for pedestrians looking to cross the street.
  5. Reduced Visibility at Night – Pedestrians walking at night are at an increased risk of being struck by a vehicle than they are during the day. Headlights do help drivers see in front of them to a certain degree, but they don’t light up the vehicle’s surroundings. Because of this, it is ill-advised that individuals walk at night.
  6. Impaired Driving – Whether it is behind the wheel or on foot, drinking alcohol is still the biggest factor in traffic accidents across the United States. If you’ve had a few, getting a designated, sober driver, or opting in for a rideshare service like Lyft or Uber, is a better alternative by miles than driving or walking while inebriated.

What are the Most Common Injuries Sustained in an Auto-Pedestrian Accident?

Grievous injury and death are common when a pedestrian is struck by a vehicle. The sheer size of a vehicle coupled with the force of impact that it can generate when traveling at high speeds can deal a lot of damage to a pedestrian unfortunate enough to be struck.

But they aren’t the only factors that need to be taken into account. Other factors that play into the severity of injuries a pedestrian suffers include:

  • Height of the pedestrian
  • Weight of the pedestrian
  • Vehicle speed
  • Where the pedestrian was struck (i.e. front, side, legs, etc.)

These factors can cause a multitude of different injuries that include:

  • Cuts and scrapes
  • Broken bones
  • Soft tissue damage
  • Internal organ damage
  • Musculoskeletal injuries
  • Nerve damage
  • Tendon damage
  • Blood vessel rupture
  • Knee ligament damage
  • Facial injury
  • Neck injury
  • Abdominal injury
  • Head injury
  • Brain trauma
  • Wrongful death

Plenty of other injuries that are not listed above carry just as much of a risk of occurring should you or someone you know be struck by a vehicle. Mental and emotional trauma can take its toll on victims long after the accident occurred.

You do not have to suffer alone. The Greenville pedestrian accident attorneys of Hammack Law Firm are ready to give a voice to your pain. Contact us right now at (864) 326-3333 for a FREE case evaluation.

How Pedestrians Can Stay Safe

Several safety tips exist in order to keep both pedestrians and drivers safe while minimizing any risks of collision, injury, and/or death.

For drivers:

  • Be aware of your surroundings. A pedestrian may not be using a designated crosswalk.
  • Follow the speed limit. Take extra caution when traveling through school zones, parking lots, and other areas that usually have a lot of pedestrian activity.
  • Give plenty of space between the crosswalk and your vehicle to allow safe passage for pedestrians. Ensure that vehicles behind you can also see the pedestrian as well.
  • Do not drink and/or do drugs and then drive.
  • Refrain from texting while driving or any other activities while driving that are considered a distraction.

For pedestrians:

  • Walk only in designated bridges, sidewalks, or crosswalks. Wait for the proper signal to cross.
  • Ensure that you’re visible to drivers. Make eye contact with them before crossing.
  • If there is no designated crosswalk, sidewalk, or bridge, cross over a well-lit pathway clear of the traffic.
  • Avoid walking across busy roads like highways, interstates, or other roadways that prohibit crossing over.
  • Do not consume alcohol or other substances that will inebriate you and inhibit decision-making and personal safety.

As the above suggests, it isn’t uncommon for negligence to fall on the driver of the vehicle, but sometimes fault and liability can also lie on the pedestrian.

Testimonials

I am so thankful for Paul and his team! My wife was hit by a car over a year ago while standing watching our kids at a field day. Paul and I discussed the situation and it was clear because of the significant liability on the part of the person driving the car that we needed to pursue an insurance settlement. We made one phone call to the hospital and insurance company and knew we were in over our heads. After that I knew that HLFs expertise was necessary to navigate these waters. They did a terrific job and exactly 7 months after the incident, all was settled. We are extremely satisfied and thankful for their work.
Did I mention Lynn? AMAZING. So refreshing to watch pros navigate what could be a stressful and drawn-out process with elegance and efficiency.

Well…I guess in my eyes a Testimony is more valuable than a Review! My wife has been involved with her case with the help of Hammack Law Firm. I was not involved nowhere near as much as my wife but yet I witnessed the struggle. Paul doesn’t make promises and guarantees that he can’t keep but the one promise and the one guarantee is that he will do everything he can to help you and be there for you! The measures of this man is immeasurable because he’s a man of Faith. My wife and I witnessed that first hand. Paul’s staff shows what his expectations are to be which makes them great at what they do! Now some of you may not post such praises and positive vibes but one can only speak from one’s experience and ours was Highly Favored! Stay Focused Paul you and your staff are continued to be destined for Greatness!

When I had my car accident, my life suddenly and radically changed. Instead of running my company and traveling all over the country to see clients, I found myself in bed for weeks, unable to move, facing multiple surgeries and procedures, and fully at the mercy of family and caretakers. Paul took our case and helped us through the emotional and financial strain of the situation. He helped us get the full insurance settlement quickly and efficiently, which helped get our life back on track.
