Losing The Ability To Walk After A Pedestrian Accident

Many people enjoy walking or going for a jog. Not only does this offer excellent exercise, but many pedestrians in South Carolina like to live in a more environmentally-friendly manner or save money. The lawyers at the Maguire Law Firm see many unfortunate examples of reckless driving, which sometimes results in a pedestrian accident. When pedestrians are hit by drivers, they face various consequences, and some lose the ability to walk for the rest of their lives. This is often especially devastating for people who are very active and enjoy going for walks on a regular basis. 

Following a pedestrian accident, many victims are injured and these injuries carry a heavy financial and emotional toll. Those who lose the ability to walk often have to find a new job or are unable to work altogether. Many other challenges arise for people in this difficult situation, such as depression, and it is very upsetting for people to think about how much their quality of life has changed as a result of a negligent driver’s actions.
