Motorcycle Crash Injuries Are Serious

Motorcycles are a unique way to travel, but that excitement can come at a high price. Sadly, you may find yourself struggling with severe injuries that will make it harder to recover.

Keep in mind that, as a motorcyclist, your damages may be more severe than those of others involved in your accident. While you may have been wearing a helmet, especially if you’re under twenty-one, you don’t have the same protections that someone in a car might. You don’t have a seat belt, airbag, or protective frame to protect you from trauma on the road.

If you’ve had a motorcycle wreck, seek out medical care to help with severe injuries, such as the following:

  • Traumatic brain injury
  • Spinal cord injury
  • Broken bones
  • Burns, including friction burns
  • Internal organ damage

Fighting for Compensation in Myrtle Beach

As a motorcyclist, you may also have a unique struggle to get compensation for your case. While motorcycle insurance is required, your insurance company may fail or refuse to compensate you for all the damages you’ve suffered.

Because South Carolina is a fault state, meaning the responsible driver is financially liable for your injuries, you’ll have a chance to take your claim to court. Don’t forget, however, that the defense will try to put the blame on you. It’s especially common to be called reckless, careless, or dangerous, based on harmful stereotypes about bikers. Unfortunately, it may work if you don’t fight back.

If you don’t take action, the liable party may claim that you were partly responsible, which could reduce your compensation by the amount of fault they blame you for. Unfortunately, that means your compensation will be reduced by that amount. That’s why it’s vital to have a lawyer who serves Myrtle Beach on your side to fight back.
