Greenville & Spartanburg, SC Motorcycle Accident Attorneys
Motorcycles are more likely than passenger cars to be involved in fatal accidents, according to the DOT; 55.54 per 100,000 motorcycles were involved in a fatal crash in 2013 compared with just 9.73 per 100,000 passenger cars. Unfortunately, riding a motorcycle, even while obeying traffic and helmet laws, can be very dangerous.
If you’ve been injured in a motorcycle accident and it wasn’t your fault, you can sue for damages. Motorcycle accidents happen frequently with passenger vehicles when they cut motorcycles off at a turn, change lanes into a motorcycle or strike them from behind. In these cases, you can work with a motorcycle accident attorney like the attorneys at Fulton & Barr to prove the driver of the vehicle was negligent and at fault. If a loved one died in such an accident, you want to move forward with a wrongful death lawsuit.
Not all motorcycle accidents involve passenger vehicles, of course. In some cases, the motorcycle or equipment is faulty, in which case you may be able to file a products liability claim against the manufacturer or distributor.
Depending on the case, you may be able to recover money for medical expenses, pain and suffering, lost wages and more.
