Pedestrian and Bicycle Accident Lawyer


Bicyclists are legally entitled to "share the road" with vehicle drivers, and they're expected to comply with traffic laws, but they're still in a very unique and potentially vulnerable position on the nation's roads, streets, and highways. Legally speaking, in nearly every state a bicycle is considered to be a "vehicle" and therefore, just like motorists, cyclists must follow the rules of the road. When it comes to collisions occurring with bicycles, liability usually boils down to who had the right-of-way -- the car or the bike.

The same is true for pedestrians who are injured by an automobile, golf cart, motorcycle, or bicyclist.  In many Cities and States a pedestrian has the right-of-way if they are within a marked cross walk.

Injuries to bicycle riders and pedestrians are generally significant due to the lack of any protection.  If you or a family member have been injured in a bicycle or pedestrian related accident in South Carolina, call attorney Trent Chambers to schedule a free consultation.
