Myrtle Beach Bike Week Rally Motorcycle Accident Attorneys

Myrtle Beach Bike Week Rally Motorcycle Accident Attorneys

This year’s Spring Beach Rally offers fun and friendship with other motorcyclists but also increases the risk of an accident.

Elected as “The Best Biker Event for 2024 on the East Coast,” South Carolina’s Spring Beach Rally continues a tradition that began in 1939, attracting motorcycle enthusiasts from across the United States. 

Also known as “Myrtle Beach Bike Week” and “Harley Bike Week,” the rally expects to draw in over 500,000 motorcyclists for events from May 10th to May 19th, 2024.

Bikers attend the rally to share their motorcycle knowledge and enthusiasm with other bikers. Yet the increase in motorcycle traffic on Myrtle Beach roads also increases the risk that one or more bikers may suffer a serious crash. If an accident occurs, talk to an experienced South Carolina motorcycle accident lawyer as soon as possible. The attorneys at the Steinberg Law Firm can help. 

Events at Spring Beach Rally 2024

One of the biggest Spring Beach Rally events is the Crude’s Veteran Ride. This year’s ride takes place on Wednesday, May 15th, 2024. Bikers meet at the Golden Egg in Surfside Beach starting at 8:00 am; the ride begins at 11:00 am. Motorcyclists will take back roads for a 150-mile round trip ride, stopping at Gilligan’s Seafood Restaurant in Moncks Corner, South Carolina, midway. 

The ride is free; participants can purchase food and gas during gas stops along the way. The meal stop at Gilligan’s offers discounted meals, and participants can also purchase raffle tickets for a chance to win various door prizes. Jamin Leather will also be holding a leather auction. Proceeds from the event go to support Homes For Our Troops.

Motorcycle Accident Risks During Harley Bike Week 2024

The Myrtle Beach area prepares for the annual Spring Beach Rally. Many businesses welcome motorcyclists and prepare for visitors. 

Yet, not all drivers on South Carolina roads prepare for the event or give their driving the attention it requires. Accidents can and do occur during these Bike Week events. 

For example, in 2006, four deadly crashes claimed motorcyclists’ lives during the Spring Beach event. Similar deadly crashes have occurred during Bike Week in more recent years. These crashes have also caused serious injuries and death at other bike rallies. In March 2024, for example, a driver ran a stop sign and killed a motorcycle passenger at Daytona Bike Week.

While police reported “no major incidents” from the rally in 2023, an increased risk of serious accidents or death is still present. Horry County law enforcement teams work to educate drivers and help motorcyclists travel safely – but even one driver who fails to take due care on Myrtle Beach roads can cause serious harm to a biker. 

What To Do If You’re Injured in a Myrtle Beach Motorcycle Accident

If you suffer injuries in a motorcycle crash during the Myrtle Beach Bike Week Rally, talk to an experienced South Carolina motorcycle accident lawyer as soon as possible. An attorney can help you protect your legal rights and build a strong case for compensation. 

Compensation After a Myrtle Beach Motorcycle Accident

After a crash, you may need help paying medical bills, getting your bike fixed, and covering other losses. You may also need help dealing with insurance companies and negotiating for the compensation you deserve. 

Compensation in a motorcycle crash can cover several types of losses, including:

  • Medical bills, including hospital care, surgeries, emergency care, doctor’s visits, medications and medical devices, and rehabilitation,
  • Lost wages for any work you miss while you’re recovering,
  • Repair or replacement costs for damaged property,
  • Compensation for pain and suffering, scarring, disfigurement, and similar losses. 

The compensation available depends on the facts of your case and injuries. An attorney can help you determine how South Carolina’s compensation rules apply in your case.

How An Attorney Can Help You After a Crash

After a crash, it’s important to speak to an attorney as soon as possible. A lawyer who represents you after an accident can:

  • Gather and preserve evidence for a complete understanding of what happened.
  • Organize information for a complete picture of your injuries and losses.
