Let's Talk

HawkLaw’s pedestrian accident attorneys empathize with your right to safety. 

Collisions between pedestrians and motor vehicles can result in life-altering personal injuries. In a crash between a car and a pedestrian, the car always wins.

However, these types of crashes shouldn’t occur as both drivers and pedestrians are responsible for safe conditions where people can cross the road. That’s why HawkLaw’s detail-oriented pedestrian accident lawyers use the comparative negligence laws to fight for your right to fair and equitable compensation as a result of a driver’s negligence at an intersection. We’ll always be by your side, doing Right By You.

Pedestrian and Car Accident Law

HawkLaw will work to prove the defendant’s fault for a pedestrian accident, and we have the experience to help you win a settlement. We will:

Investigate the scene

Send our team of investigators to the scene of your accident. They will photograph the location, talk to eyewitnesses, and secure any footage of the accident available.

Obtain police reports

We’ll review the official police report for your accident, gathering any information we can use to prove your innocence in a pedestrian accident. The law is often on the pedestrian’s side in these cases, and a police report may prove that you weren’t breaking any roadway rules. 

Recreate the accident

When presenting the case before trial, our team of investigative experts will recreate the accident in front of a judge to present proof of the negligent actions that conspired to cause the accident. 

Fight for fair compensation

In the event of a pedestrian accident, you’ll be forced to seek treatment for your injuries; treatment that’s very expensive. We’ll use all of our investigative skills to build your case so that you receive fair compensation for medical expenses, lost wages, pain and suffering, and more. 

Common FAQs

South Carolina only affords you a short window of opportunity to file a lawsuit against the at-fault party, so it is important to consult with a lawyer right away.  But if some time has passed since your injury, the law does provide some limited exceptions so you might not be out of luck.  Contact Hawklaw today to find out if you still have a viable claim.

If the person who was driving the vehicle that caused the pedestrian accident is unable to be located, the courts could grant an extension to you and your legal team to file your complaint.

Contact HawkLaw today to find out if you still have a viable claim.

In the event you become victimized by a pedestrian accident, you need to be able to prove the negligence of the driver responsible for the accident. Proving that degree of negligence without legal training is very difficult and unlikely to be well-received within the courts. Hiring a lawyer and an entire legal team of investigators to recreate the accident with documented proof from police reports brings a much stronger case to the courts.
