Charleston Personal Injury Attorneys For Serious Motorcycle Accidents
A beautiful day out on a motorcycle ride can turn tragic in an instant. Motorcycle accidents can cause catastrophic injuries, simply because motorcycles lack the size and protection of larger vehicles. If you have been injured in a motorcycle accident by someone else’s negligence and need a motorcycle accident lawyer, our Charleston personal injury attorneys at Young & Young, Attorneys at Law, are ready to fight on your behalf.
Common Causes For Motorcycle Crashes
Motorcycles can crash for any number of reasons. Some of the most common causes of motorcycle accidents include:
- Driving under the influence of alcohol (DUI) or drugs
- Speed, either the motorcycle or the other vehicle was going too fast
- Weather conditions
- Lane switching or lane splitting
- Dangerous road conditions
Our personal injury attorneys will investigate all possible causes of your accident. If the other driver was driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol, we will hold them accountable. If dangerous road conditions caused your accident, we will investigate any possible premises liability claims to see if someone was responsible or negligent in maintaining the road. Our goal is to hold any liable parties responsible for your accident injuries.
When Motorcycle Accidents Are Someone Else’s Fault
In South Carolina, to file a personal injury lawsuit for a motor vehicle accident, the plaintiff must show that the defendant was at fault. The state of South Carolina is also a comparative negligence state when it comes to car accidents. This means, that if the cyclist’s actions contributed in any way to the crash, any damages will be reduced by the percentage that the cyclist was at fault.
