Motorcycle accidents are some of the worst traffic collisions in Spartanburg County. Motorcyclists are highly vulnerable in collisions with larger vehicles. They do not have the metal shell of the vehicle to protect them from bodily injuries. Even with motorcycle helmets on, riders can suffer serious head and brain injuries, along with broken bones, road rash, traumatic tattooing, and other injuries – not to mention a completely totaled motorcycle with thousands of dollars in damages. As the medical bills start adding up along with missed time at work, you may not know the first step to take toward financial recovery.

You may have grounds to file a personal injury claim in Spartanburg after a motorcycle crash if someone else’s negligence caused the wreck. For example, if another driver merged on top of you, causing you to swerve off the road and crash. Other drivers, roadway maintenance crews, the City of Spartanburg, and product manufacturers may all be defendants in your motorcycle accident claim. Our Spartanburg motorcycle accident lawyers can investigate your accident and help you learn whether or not someone else should have to pay your damages.
Motorcyclists are often the victims of driver negligence, ignorance, and even road rage. Motorcycles have the right to take full lanes in Spartanburg, as well as to drive on all the roadways where other vehicles can travel. Unfortunately, many motor vehicle drivers ignore or don’t understand the rights of motorcyclists to the roadway. Drivers may cut motorcycles off, merge lanes on top of them, fail to keep a safe driving distance, and fail to check carefully for the smaller vehicles before pulling out of driveways. These acts of negligence can result in serious or fatal motorcyclist injuries.
