Pedestrian Accident Lawyers Who Get Results
We fight to get compensation for your injuries
People walk every day in Columbia. Parents walk to the park with their children. Students walk to class on the University of South Carolina's campus. People walk to pick up something from the store. When you go out for a walk, you should feel safe.
Yet every year, pedestrians are injured in accidents after being hit by a car, truck or other vehicle. Some are killed. In an instant, your life can be changed and you could face a long recovery with costly medical bills. The experienced pedestrian accident attorneys at Lourie Law Firm help victims get the compensation they deserve.
Why are pedestrians struck by vehicles? Generally, because of negligence on the part of the driver. A distracted driver who was too busy texting to pay attention to the road. A drunk driver who should never have been behind the wheel. An extremely tired trucker working extra hours to try to make a deadline, or a reckless driver who just had to beat that red light. It's almost always a driver who made a poor decision that left a pedestrian hurt.
Pedestrians don't have protection in a car accident, so the injuries they suffer can be very serious. Broken bones are common. Pedestrians can suffer spinal cord injuries that affect their ability to walk. Or a traumatic brain injury that affects their cognitive abilities. Medical expenses for these types of injuries can add up quickly. And recovery can involve months or even years of surgery, medication and rehabilitation.
Pedestrians who get hit by negligent drivers shouldn't be left with bills they can't pay. We fight for their rights.
