Woman injured in pedestrian-car accident

South Carolina pedestrians are notoriously vulnerable to significant injuries and death when they are hit by a motor vehicle. These accidents can happen for a variety of reasons, but regardless of how the accident happened, those who were hurt need to know that they will have a great deal to think about. That includes treatment, rehabilitation, long-term care and lost wages. This is why it is imperative to have help from a Pawleys Island South Carolina personal injury attorney right after the accident has occurred to take steps for a possible legal filing.

A 63-year-old woman was seriously injured when she was hit by a car as she was walking to the parked cars in the area. She was pinned against the front bumper by the vehicle that crashed into her and the tailgate of a truck that was illegally parked. The truck was forced into another parked vehicle and damaged it. The woman was seriously hurt. As the police investigated, they found that the driver of the car that hit her, a 40-year-old man, had been heading east and missed his turn. He looked behind him and then when he turned toward where he was heading, he hit the woman. She was taken by air to a hospital for treatment with serious injuries.

Even personal injury claims that seem to be cut and dried such as when there is a driver under the influence or an incident stemming from recklessness or a driver basically not paying attention must be investigated and the evidence needs to be accrued. With that, there might be the need for a variety of experts to explain how much the injured party and his or her family have been harmed by the car accident. The litany of issues that arise after these types of accidents make it necessary to take all the necessary steps to plan for a legal case.

In this incident, a woman was injured as she crossed the street and was hit by a driver who was apparently distracted. Considering the factors in this incident, the injured woman and her family must make sure to protect themselves by consulting with an experienced attorney as soon as possible.
