This is the blog of Greenville SC truck accident attorney Thomas Creech. Anytime a car or truck hits a pedestrian, death and serious personal injury are very likely to occur. Just in the last few weeks there have been numerous pedestrian-car accidents. In two of those car wrecks, the pedestrian has died. In the last week there were pedestrian deaths on Wade Hampton Boulevard in Greenvile. A third pedestrian vs. car accident occurred in Anderson, SC.
Pedestrian automobile accidents involve a multitude of issues that could arise depending upon the facts of each case. Initially, a personal injury attorney will conduct a thorough factual investigation to understand what likely took place in the accident. One device that contains a treasure trove of information is the black box in the vehicle. Information from an automobile black box can be downloaded into a computer. From the computer, it can be determined when the brakes were applied on the vehicle, the speed of the vehicle, and other important information.
Once the facts are known, a personal injury attorney can then research the law and apply the law to the facts of the case in order to estimate fault between the pedestrian and the vehicle.
