Commentary on Marie Chambers Truck Accident in North Charleston
A lot of times when people see a pedestrian accident, they think everything just boils down to whether or not the victim had the right of way. As important as that is, it's rarely the whole story. For example, let's say a pedestrian enters the road suddenly and where there is no crosswalk. A driver doing everything they're supposed to may not be able to avoid them. But if someone is clearly visible and far away enough to avoid, right of way or not, a driver failing to see and avoid them may have been engaging in negligent behavior. Did something like that happen here?
