Motorcycle Accident Lawyers in South Carolina
Motorcycle Law Group – Surfside Beach, SC Office (Appointment Only)
Every rider understands the inherent risks of riding a motorcycle for transportation or as a hobby. There are added dangers when you aren’t encased in metal and surrounded by airbags, but that doesn’t mean your rights are any different from other drivers on the road.
Riders are owed the same duty of care as any driver. When someone else’s negligent actions – whether it’s drunk driving, speeding or distracted driving – lead to an injury, accident or the death of a motorcyclist, that negligent person should be held liable.
Proving fault isn’t always easy and claim negotiations with the other driver’s insurance company aren’t always as straightforward and honest as they should be.
When the average driver who doesn’t ride thinks of motorcyclists, they’re often remembering the ones who made the biggest (generally negative) impression on them. A lot of motorists unfairly assume the small percentage of reckless riders are representative of all riders. Unfortunately, a lot of those motorists could be in your case’s jury pool.
During negotiations insurance companies will think they can get away with offering you less because if you do go to court you will likely be dealing with a hostile jury.
Your choice of attorney will have a significant impact on whether that strategy could work. Attorneys experienced in motorcycle accident injury cases understand how to convert suspicious and skeptical jurors to your side of events.
Not every motorcycle injury case makes it to a jury trial, but it’s always good to work with a group of attorneys who prepare as if your case could head to court. The preparation and aggressive negotiations can result in more advantageous settlement offers during pre-trial negotiations.
It also shows the insurance company that they’re dealing with lawyers who really understand motorcycle injury cases.
There are undeniably some unique challenges that come along with representing motorcycle accident injury clients, and not every lawyer can speak knowledgably to these issues.
