Do I Have a Case?

While the free case review is the time in which we determine together if you are eligible to file a motorcycle accident case for you, here are some general criteria for eligible motorcycle accident cases to help you feel comfortable in calling us for a free case review.

Among motorcycle accident injuries, leg, knee, and foot trauma are among the most common, while head or brain injuries are often the most life-altering. Road rash is also extremely common in this type of accident. Other common motorcycle injuries include burns from fuel leaks and other hazardous materials, as well as spinal, soft tissue, and internal organ damage.

Many motorcycle accidents are caused by distracted drivers of motor vehicles, as well as other dangerous driving behaviors, such as alcohol impairment, following too closely, speeding, and failure to yield.

Liability in motorcycle accident cases is established by proving the following three elements: 1) The at-fault party owed you a duty of care, which means that they should have considered your life and safety on the road. This depends on the at-fault party’s role in your accident. 2) There was a breach in that duty of care. The breach is the action that the at-fault party took that resulted in the accident, such as distracted driving or failing to yield. 3) This breach resulted in the accident and subsequently caused your injuries and losses.

The statute of limitations in motorcycle accident cases is usually three years. What this means is that you have three years from the date of your accident to file a legal claim in your case. This deadline is strictly followed in South Carolina, with only a few exceptions. Your attorney will advise you there is a circumstance in which your time limit will be extended.

You Deserve Compensation

Put the experience of Harris & Graves to work for you. We will fight for the compensation you deserve while providing compassionate guidance every step of the way.

The Compensation You Might Be Owed

If you were injured in a motorcycle accident caused by a reckless driver, you may be able to be compensated for:

  • Medical expenses
  • Lost wages
  • Loss of future earning capacity
  • The cost of repairing or replacing damaged property (such as your motorcycle)
  • Physical pain and suffering and other damages relating to the injury’s impact on your life

If you were partially responsible for your accident, you are still permitted to file a personal injury claim. However, your settlement or award could be reduced by the percentage of responsibility you bear. This is why it’s crucial to have an experienced motorcycle accident lawyer on your side who understands the complexities of seeking compensation for your losses.
