Charleston Motorcycle Accident Lawyer
Aggressive Representation in Your Time of Need
Motorcycles are a fun and efficient way to get around South Carolina, but they do pose a safety risk to riders. Among so many passenger cars and trucks on the road, motorcyclists are at a disadvantage. Their smaller vehicle size and relative lack of protection are a recipe for disaster in the event of an accident.
If another driver’s negligence, recklessness, or intentional conduct caused an accident that left you injured, you deserve compensation. Too often, car drivers fail to share the road with motorcyclists and drive aggressively or negligently, which leads to accidents. The Charleston motorcycle accident attorney at Ellis Roberts Law, LLC are ready to fight for you if you were injured.
Causes of Motorcycle Accidents
There are a variety of factors that could play a role in a motorcycle accident. Regardless of the exact cause, motorcyclists are prone to serious, potentially even life-threatening injuries.
At Ellis Roberts Law, we have handled cases involving motorcycle accidents caused by:
- Reckless driving
- Drunk driving
- Negligent driving
- Texting while driving
- Failure to obey traffic laws
- Merging into a lane without checking for motorcyclists
- Making a left turn without checking for motorcyclists
- Unsafe roads
- Defective bikes and motorcycle parts
If another driver was responsible for your accident, Ellis Roberts Law, LLC can hold that person accountable. We can pursue the full compensation you are entitled to from their insurance company.
If a manufacturer was responsible for your accident – such as the company that manufactured your motorcycle – we can also pursue a claim against them. Our firm can even file a claim against the city if unsafe roads were to blame for the incident.
As with any accident claim, you may be entitled to a variety of damages if you were injured in a motorcycle accident.
We can pursue compensation for your:
- Medical bills
- Future medical care
- Lost wages
- Lost earning potential
- Permanent disability
- Pain and suffering
- Loss of consortium
Motorcycle accidents can lead to serious, debilitating injuries that have a huge financial, physical, and emotional toll on the victim. Don’t shoulder this burden alone – pursue the compensation you are entitled to.
