Myrtle Beach Motorcycle Accident Attorney
Motorcycles don’t offer the protection of a car, truck, or van. When a motorcycle accident occurs, the results are usually extremely severe. Without protection aside from a helmet and other safety gear, motorcyclists are especially at risk and more vulnerable to serious, life-threatening injuries, such as extensive head injuries, concussions, and more. As a result, motorcycle accidents lead to double the amount of severe injuries and fatalities than any other type of vehicle-related accident. Motorcycle accidents are the most prevalent cause of fatal accidents on the road in South Carolina.
When a motorcycle accident occurs and results in serious injuries, the victim almost always has to go through extensive medical treatments and procedures. Most motorcycle accident victims suffer from head injuries, which in turn can be extremely costly and time-consuming. If brain damage occurs as well, the victim’s life may altered in a significant way.
Other common injuries stemming from motorcycle accidents include:
Spinal cord injuries
With the exhausting medical visits, the costs incurred, rehabilitation, and the lost wages, motorcycle accident victims usually need legal help in recovering damages. Additionally, since the damages of a motorcycle accident are so severe, in many instances the victim may suffer fatal wounds, leaving loved ones with not only emotional damages, but the burden of having to compensate for medical bills, burial services, and funeral expenses.
