South Carolina Bicycle Accident Lawyer

As a cyclist, you had every right to be riding where you were hit. In South Carolina, only interstate highways are off limits to cyclists. As such, you have the opportunity to hold the driver who hit you liable for your medical bills, pain and suffering, property damage, and much more.  Marc Brown has the experience and cycling knowledge needed to win your claim. We are versed in all types of bike collisions and irresponsible drivers, from right hooks and road rage, to distracted texters and drunk drivers.

Damages in a South Carolina Bicycle Crash

Cyclists struck by cars and trucks almost always suffer serious, life-threatening injuries that result in hospital stays, surgeries, pain medication, physical therapy, and PTSD. Just a few examples of injuries we have seen over the years include concussions, life-changing traumatic brain injuries, multiple fractures throughout the body, serious lacerations, permanent scarring and disfigurement, fractured vertebrae, and spinal cord injuries. These injuries lead to high medical expenses, lost time at work, and severe emotional trauma. As a victim, you have the right to seek compensation for the following damages.

  • Pain and suffering
  • Medical bills
  • Future medical expenses
  • Lost income
  • Lost earning ability
  • Loss of joy of life
  • Emotional distress
  • Property damage

Proving the Driver was at Fault Can be Difficult

Unfortunately, the odds are sometimes stacked against cyclists when it comes to proving fault. To start, many drivers (including police, who conduct the official accident investigation) have a strong bias against cyclists, wrongly believing that cyclists do not have a right to be on the road, that they are somehow holding up traffic, or that cyclists are reckless rule-breakers. To make matters worse, in most bike vs. car crashes, the driver is completely unharmed, while the cyclist has to be taken to the hospital. This often means that the cyclist does not even get to tell the police what happened before the accident report is written, enabling the driver to make up whatever story they feel like in order to blame the cyclist. Because of the uphill battle that cyclists face when proving fault on behalf of motorists, you need to work with an attorney who fully understands the rules of the road pertaining to cyclists, is willing to work with expert witnesses and crash scene reconstructionists, will go to the effort of tracking down eye-witnesses, and who understands how any other pertinent bike-specific evidence can be used, such as bike computers/GPS, bike camera footage, and Strava and other ride-sharing apps that can be used to locate potential witnesses, etc.
