Hilton Head, SC Motorcycle Accident

Statistics show that motorcycle riders are much more likely to be injured or killed in an accident than automobile drivers. Motorcycles are less visible on the road, and all too often, the cars that share the road do not pay proper attention to their two-wheeled counterparts. When that happens, the consequences can be devastating. 

Under South Carolina law, drivers and passengers who have been injured in a motorcycle accident, or those whose loved ones have passed, may be entitled to monetary compensation. Don’t accept a settlement offer without consulting with an attorney. 

At Morgan & Morgan, our attorneys are experienced at handling motorcycle accident cases. If you or your loved one has been harmed or killed in a motorcycle accident, fill out a free case evaluation form to find out how our Hilton Head attorneys can help you.

Types of Injuries

Injuries sustained in motorcycle accidents can be significant. An accident may cause temporary or permanent disability or even, in the worst case, death. Some of the most common injuries include:

  • Biker’s Arm: Motorcycle accidents may cause a condition known as “biker’s arm” or “rider’s arm.” The injury occurs when a motorcycle rider uses his arm to brace himself upon impact. The injury may consist of damage to tendons, nerves, muscles, or bones, resulting in pain and loss of the ability to fully use the arm.
  • Foot and Leg Injuries: Lower extremity injuries, such as those occurring to the feet and legs, are most common in motorcycle accidents. The feet and legs are particularly vulnerable because they are closest to the ground. From broken bones to road rash, this type of injury can limit a rider’s ability to use his legs.
  • Head Injuries: Head injuries are among the most serious consequences of motorcycle accidents. Impact to the head can cause a concussion, skull fracture, or even a traumatic brain injury.
  • Spinal Injuries: Injuries to the spine may include slipped or damaged discs or damage to the spinal cord. The effects of a spinal injury may be minor and temporary or life-altering.
  • Road Rash: The effects of sliding across pavement after a motorcycle accident can be quite serious. The resulting road rash is much more than a simple skinned knee. It may include nerve damage or exposed muscle or bone, and may require stitches or even skin grafts.

Our experienced motorcycle accident attorneys understand the injuries that come with a motorcycle accident as well as the compensation you are entitled to for those injuries. Contact a Hilton Head attorney right away for a free evaluation.

Types of Compensation

Under South Carolina law, a person injured in a motorcycle accident may be entitled to receive monetary compensation for several components of his injury.

  • Medical Expenses: An injured party may recover both current and future medical expenses. This includes basic expenses like doctor visits and hospital stays as well as longer-term costs associated with rehabilitation, medical equipment, and mental health counseling. Medical expenses don’t end when a victim leaves the hospital and, in more serious cases, may continue for the rest of that person’s life.
     
  • Lost Wages: An injury may prevent a victim from working, temporarily or permanently, resulting in loss of income. If the injuries affect future earning ability, such as by making a victim unable to perform work that would provide an income comparable to his pre-accident income, he may be able to recover for that anticipated loss as well.
     
  • Pain and Suffering/Emotional Distress: You can recover for the physical pain you’ve endured as a result of your injuries as well as emotional distress, such as worry, anxiety, and post-traumatic stress.
     
  • Loss of Life: The surviving spouse and children of a person killed in a motorcycle accident may be entitled to compensation for their loss of companionship as well as resulting expenses, such as costs of assistance. Parents may also recover for loss of love, affection, and companionship.

It’s important that all damages, including those that haven’t occurred yet, be accounted for. A Morgan & Morgan motorcycle accident attorney can help you evaluate the value of your claim and work to get everything to which you are entitled. Contacting a Hilton Head attorney is the first step in pursuing compensation for your injury.

Our Process

Our motorcycle accident attorneys will get to work right away on your case by collecting all relevant documentation, from police reports to medical records. We will then conduct an investigation to piece together the details of the crash including using, for example, camera footage, accident reports, and witness statements. Once we have all the information needed to fully evaluate your case, we will work with the insurance companies to get you the compensation you’re entitled to or, if necessary, file a lawsuit to force the insurance companies to pay.

We will fight for you all the way. Start the process with a free case evaluation.
