Motorcycle Accident Lawyer representing Charleston & Nearby Areas of South Carolina

If you or a loved one has recently been in a motorcycle accident, then you know it comes with a cost. Bills for medical care, follow up appointments, and car repair can really add up, to say nothing of the money lost by missing work or paying more insurance. But according to South Carolina law, someone else may be legally obligated to pay these costs, especially if the accident was not your fault.

The motorcycle accident attorneys at Steinberg Law Firm can determine whether you are legally owed compensation for your motorcycle accident and help move your case forward. Our experienced motorcycle accident attorneys deal with insurance adjustors and accident paperwork on a regular basis, and we can keep unscrupulous insurance companies or dishonest motorists from taking advantage of you.

Why Motorcycle Accidents Are so Common

There are a number of reasons why motorcycle accidents happen and many of them are not the fault of the biker. In South Carolina in particular, the highways and byways are poorly maintained and infrequently repaired and are a common cause of motorcycle accidents.

Negligent drivers are also one of the main reasons motorcyclists are involved in collisions. Often drivers do not see bikers due to their narrow profile, do not check their blind spots, do not give bikers enough room while on the road, and often turn right in front of an oncoming biker.

According to the "Hurt Report," the main cause of accidents involving motorcycles is the failure of drivers to recognize motorcycles on the road. In other words, 66 percent of all motorcycle and automobile collisions happen because the vehicle driver violates the biker's right of way. One of the most common accidents for motorcyclists is having a car turn left right in front of them. There is no way a biker can avoid a collision in those circumstances other than laying the bike down, which may still result in serious injuries or death.

Careless driving by automobiles while around motorcycles end up with a collision resulting in catastrophic injuries or death. If the negligent driver caused the accident, they may be held responsible/liable for the victim's losses.

What Our Motorcycle Accident Attorneys Can Do For You

If you've been injured in a motorcycle accident, we don't advise that you try to handle the insurance companies yourself. They have an entire team of lawyers, adjustors, and investigators all working against you, to try and pay you as little as possible on your claim.

Handle all the paper work and red tape that stands between you and the compensation you deserve

Negotiate directly with the insurance companies on your behalf

Our experienced lawyers know how to build your case to pursue the best possible outcome for you and your family. We have the resources and knowledge to investigate the circumstances of your accident, and to deal with intimidating and powerful insurance companies so you don't have to. We are personally committed to offering each of our clients high-quality legal representation.

Recovering Compensation After an Accident

Motorcyclists involved in an accident and who survive their injuries may be compensated for:

  • Emotional distress
  • Disfigurement
  • Medical costs (medication, rehabilitation, disability care)
  • Physical impairment
  • Pain/suffering
  • Lost income (present/future losses)
  • Loss of companionship/society
  • Loss consortium
  • Property damage to personal property and/or motorcycle
  • Funeral/burial costs as a result of a fatal accident
  • Possible punitive damages*

Filling a claim after a motorcycle accident has a statute of limitations. In South Carolina, all motorcycle personal injury claims must be filed within three years of the date of injury or death.

South Carolina Personal Injury Lawyers from the Steinberg Law Firm

*South Carolina punitive damages may be awarded in the case of a motorcycle accident plaintiff if they were harmed as the result of reckless, willful, or wanton conduct on the part of the defendant. Punitive damages are limited in South Carolina to triple the damages awarded for economic loss or $500,000 – whichever is greater.
