Motorcycle Accident Lawyer in Columbia, South Carolina
South Carolina and Georgia are ideal for motorcycle riders – long open roads, mild weather for most of the year, and beautiful scenery. Unfortunately, it only takes one inattentive driver to turn an enjoyable afternoon into a disaster. And when a car versus motorcycle crash occurs, serious injuries or even fatalities are likely for the motorcyclists.
While the most common causes of motorcycle accidents are car drivers failing to check their blind spots or turning into the path of an oncoming motorcycle, most car drivers are quick to blame the motorcyclist following a crash. They may say the motorcyclist was weaving between lanes, speeding or otherwise operating recklessly. Of course, the car driver will claim to have been going exactly the speed limit and to have followed all traffic laws.
One of the keys to a successful motorcycle accident claim is a thorough investigation of the causes of the crash. This job largely falls on the investigating police officer, but it's important to have the accident report reviewed as soon as possible by an experienced motorcycle accident attorney. A report that meets the legal requirements may still be lacking important information, and an experienced insurance defense attorney could use any holes to try to block a claim.
To make sure your claim is well documented and properly presented with accurate witness testimony and other evidence, call our office as soon as possible. We'll begin an independent investigation into the cause of your crash and help you fully understand what compensation you may be entitled to receive.
