South Carolina Motorcycle Accident Lawyer

Motorcycles offer a great alternative to cars in terms of commuting, running errands, sight-seeing, and just getting outside. But, as you are well aware, not all drivers are on the lookout for other road users, let alone motorcyclists or anything smaller than a semi-truck. Distracted driving, road rage, and aggressive maneuvers are a constant threat to those on two wheels. If you were injured by a driver while out riding,  Marc Brown can help you get back on your feet.

Top Causes of Motorcycle Crashes

  • Driver was Tailgating—While a slow speed rear-ender might only cause a fender bender between two cars or SUVs, if the forward road user is a motorcyclist, they could very well end up in the hospital. Rear-end crashes generally occur when the driver is intoxicated, aggressive, or distracted.
  • Driver Changed Lanes Without Looking—This is quite possibly the most common type of motorcycle crash. Failure to check mirrors or look over one’s shoulder is a luxury that only car and truck drivers have; motorcyclists have a very real chance of dying if they were to ride as carelessly as most drivers do.
  • Driver Pulled Out From a Side Street—A driver, who was texting a moment prior, that pulls out of a side street directly in front of a motorcyclist will inevitably cause a T-bone crash, sideswipe, or rear-ender. Distracted or impatient drivers often claim that they “didn’t see” the motorcyclist, or that “they came out of nowhere.” Both of these excuses are obscured, of course. If the driver had been paying attention, they would have noticed the motorcyclist.
  • Driver Made an Unsafe Pass—Road users have an obligation to only pass on two-lane roads when there are no oncoming vehicles, and only when a dashed yellow line is present at the time of the pass. Failure to do so can cause a sideswipe collision with a motorcyclist traveling in the same direction, or a head-on crash. Head-on collisions are almost always fatal for motorcyclists, aside when the rider has time to swerve off the road, still resulting in a crash but saving their own life in the process.

Compensation From a South Carolina Motorcycle Accident Claim

It is understandable that motorcycle accident victims are eager to settle with the other party and put the crash behind them, but when it comes to serious injuries, a personal injury claim cannot be rushed. This is because time is required to see how injuries heal or don’t heal

  • Medical expenses
  • Pain and suffering
  • Emotional turmoil
  • Loss of joy of life
  • Loss of income
  • Loss of earning capacity
  • Property damage
  • Permanent scarring and disfigurement
