Damages in North Charleston Motorcycle Accident Cases
While motorcycles make up only a small portion of the number of registered vehicles in South Carolina, they are involved in a disproportionate number of serious and fatal accidents. The primary reason why North Charleston motorcycle accidents are so deadly is that motorcycles, unlike cars and SUVs, offer no protection to riders. However, when it comes to recovering after an accident, a victim’s vehicle choice is irrelevant and a negligent motorist cannot avoid or reduce their liability because a motorcyclist assumed the risks involved of riding a motorcycle.
Some of the more common injuries in motorcycle accidents include:
• Head injuries, including traumatic brain injuries (TBIs)
• Road rash
• Back and spine injuries
• Broken bones
• Chest and rib injuries
Regardless of the type of injury you suffered in a North Charleston motorcycle accident, our experienced attorneys can help you hold the at-fault party responsible.
Helmet Use North Charleston Motorcycle Accidents
There is no doubt about it, helmets can help prevent serious injury or death in some motorcycle accidents. However, under state law, only motorcyclists under the age of 21 are legally required to wear a helmet.
South Carolina personal injury law prevents defendants in motorcycle accident cases from raising the issue of helmet use for riders over the age of 21. This means that an accident victim who was not wearing a helmet at the time of the accident can still recover for their injuries. And unlike in many other states, defendants cannot reduce the amount of damages owed to an accident victim based on the accident victim’s failure to wear a helmet. If someone causes a North Charleston motorcycle accident, they are responsible for whatever damages were caused, regardless of whether the motorcyclist was wearing a helmet.
Of course, North Charleston motorcycle accidents also present their share of hurdles that accident victims must overcome. Over the decades we have been handling motorcycle accident cases, we have noticed that there is an unfounded societal stigma against motorcyclists. When many people hear about a motorcycle accident, they assume it was caused by the motorcyclist’s negligence, inexperience or aggressive driving. At Steinberg Law Firm, we have developed a proven way of dissolving this stigma and shedding light on the true causes of the accident.
