Investigating Motorcycle Accidents

One problem bikers have when filing a personal injury lawsuit is dealing with “jury bias” that insurance companies rely on. Insurance adjusters do everything they can to blame the victim for taking risky behavior on a motorcycle. We know that most motorcycle drivers are the safest drivers on the road. We understand the legal issues as well as the technical causes that often lead to car-bike accidents. We will thoroughly investigate your case and provide an honest evaluation of your claim for financial damages.

Motorcycle Accident FAQs

How long do Personal Injury Cases take?

It generally takes one year from the date a lawsuit is filed for that case to be called to trial.

Insurance companies often try to delay the process, resulting in cases not being called to trial for 18-24 months. Fortunately, most accident cases settle short of trial.

Are there limitations for a settlement claim in South Carolina?

South Carolina has set limitations on the settlement amounts for personal injury claims. Punitive damages may not exceed three times the amount of compensatory damages or $500 000.

Certain circumstances such as a felony conviction, the cap is four times compensatory damages or $2 million.

Is South Carolina a fault state?

South Carolina uses a fault based system for dealing with accidents.

In South Carolina with the fault scheme, the person at fault is the only one who is responsible, and an innocent driver’s insurance company does not necessarily need to be brought into the case.

Is South Carolina a Tort State?

South Carolina is a tort liability state, which means the not-at-fault person can pursue a claim against the at-fault party.

South Carolina is also comparative negligence, which means you can be barred from collecting for the percentage you contributed to the accident.

What is the statute of limitations in South Carolina?

You have three years to file a complaint for damages from a car accident, whether those damages stem from personal injury or damage to property.

If there is any kind of government or municipality involved, for example the collision was with an on duty police officer driving his police provided vehicle, then the statute of limitations is much shorter and you need to file specific papers to give the municipality notice.
