We represent injury victims throughout South Carolina including Horry & Georgetown Counties.
South Carolina Motorcycle Laws
It is especially important that every South Carolina motorcyclist understands and obeys the laws in order to not be found negligent in the event of an accident. Despite the fact that helmets and eyewear are only required for motorcyclists under the age of 21 in South Carolina, it is advisable to protect yourself with a helmet to decrease the likelihood of a severe head injury. For example, if you sustained a traumatic brain injury from the result of a motorcycle accident and did not wear a helmet, it is more difficult to recover compensation for the injury. In South Carolina, motorcyclists are required to have insurance which includes minimum requirements for these types of policies. Bikers are not to share lanes with cars and are entitled to one traffic lane themselves. If you do find yourself in a situation where you are injured in a motorcycle accident, file a police report immediately and then contact a South Carolina injury lawyer to protect your rights.
What is My Case Worth?
If you have been involved in a motorcycle accident, or any other accident for that matter, the value of your case depends on a number of variables. Under South Carolina’s modified comparative negligence doctrine, any degree that you are found to have contributed to the incident can be deducted from the compensation you receive. Other factors such as your income, level of education and career path all help determine lost wages you can be compensated for. Last and most importantly, the seriousness of your injuries is a crucial factor in determining the amount of compensation you could receive after an accident. Compensation is determined in part by your ability to take care of yourself, damage to your vehicle, the amount of time you need to take off work, rehabilitation, and medical expenses. With the right attorney, you could see the compensation you deserve for all of these things.
