Aiken County Pedestrian Accident
Pedestrian accidents happen on our roads every day across Georgia, South Carolina, North Carolina, and many other states. These accidents are life-altering for those involved. This is due to the fact that pedestrians are vulnerable on our roads and have no protections from harm. Against vehicles that weigh thousands of pounds more, this can lead to serious damages. You have rights when it comes to your pedestrian accident claim.
