Pedestrian Dangers

Pedestrian Dangers

While we cannot spend too much time dwelling on the hazards of daily life, we also cannot completely ignore them. Through no fault of their own, pedestrians face an alarming variety of hazards while engaged in the simple act of walking from place to place. When the negligence or recklessness of another person or entity causes a pedestrian harm, the consequences can be devastating.

If you have suffered an injury inflicted by the actions, behaviors, or negligence of another party, then you may wish to pursue a lawsuit in order to recover financial compensation for damages as appropriate to the circumstances. Contact the Charleston personal injury lawyers of the Steinberg Law Firm at 843-720-2800 to speak with a skilled and experienced attorney about your prospective case.


The nature of the hazards to which a pedestrian is exposed will depend of course upon the location in which he or she is walking and other factors such as the weather, time of day, and many more. Some of the potential sources of danger that may have led to your accidental or intentional injury include:

  • Distracted, drunk, or drowsy drivers
  • Physical assault at the hands of criminal in a mugging or other crime
  • Slip and falls due to inadequately cleared snow and/or ice
  • Slip and falls due to negligently maintained sidewalks
  • Falling tree branches

The consequences of accidents like these can be severe. If you have been injured by another person’s negligence, you could be eligible to receive compensation for your medical bills, property repairs, pain and suffering, and potentially more.
