A motorcyclist faces a far greater risk of dying in an accident, or suffering serious injuries; compared with a driver or a passenger in a traditional vehicle. All too often, motorcycle riders are badly hurt or even lose their lives, simply because other drivers make unsafe decisions about sharing the road.
The motorcyclists who are hurt in accidents, as well as family members of a biker who is killed, all have legal rights. A local South Carolina motorcycle accident attorney with Auger & Auger is here to help victims of motorcycle accidents to exercise their rights and fight for full and fair compensation for damages sustained.
If you think there’s a defect affecting your bike’s performance, or problems with the road, or there were obvious careless actions taken by another driver which resulted in your motorcycle accident, be sure to contact Auger & Auger. During your free evaluation we will determine if you can pursue a claim for compensation and answer any questions you have which aren’t covered below:
What Are My Rights after a Motorcycle Accident?
If another driver was responsible for causing your motorcycle accident, you can make the claim against them to receive compensation for all the damages sustained from your own injuries or those endured due to the loss of a loved one in a fatal crash.
Sometimes, the design or maintenance of the street is the cause of a motorcycle accident, especially when the crash is a single vehicle collision resulting from losing control of your bike. You might be able to make a claim against the agency responsible for the roads under these circumstances. Or, if your motorcycle itself had a defect that caused the crash to occur and led to your injuries, making a product liability claim against the manufacturer may allow you to obtain compensation.
No matter who you pursue your claim against, our South Carolina motorcycle accident attorney will fight for your rights to be fully repaid for all losses caused by the accident, including non-economic damages such as pain and suffering you experienced.
How Do I Get Compensation after a Motorcycle Accident?
To collect motorcycle accident compensation for your losses, you need to be ready to prove that the person or company you’re making a claim against was really to blame for the crash. Your local South Carolina motorcycle accident lawyer can help you to prepare your case and present convincing evidence of just how your crash occurred.
We can make your case in court, or build a strong claim to help you negotiate an out-of-court settlement which provides the compensation you deserve. Auger & Auger is expert at strategies to assist with a pursuit in this direction.
