Frequently Asked Questions About South Carolina Motorcycle Accident Claims

May 26, 2020

If you were injured in a motorcycle accident in South Carolina, you likely have several questions about pursuing a claim for your damages. Below are frequently asked questions about personal injury claims.

Should I speak with a lawyer about my South Carolina motorcycle claim?

Yes. An experienced attorney can help you understand your legal rights, investigate the accident to determine liability, protect your rights and help you value your damages. You do not want to accept a low offer from the insurance company, and a lawyer can advocate for the highest compensation.

I might have been partially to blame for the accident. Can I still pursue a claim?

That will depend on how much of the fault actually rests with you or not at all. In South Carolina, it is possible to still recover compensation if you were partially to blame for the accident and your injuries. However, you cannot still recover if you were more at at-fault for the accident than the other party.  An experienced attorney can assist you with determining the answer this difficult question by discussing the facts of your case. 

How long do I have to pursue a motorcycle accident claim in South Carolina? 

There are specific deadlines when bringing a personal injury claim that apply to your case.  If your statute of limitations runs before you file your case in court or settle out of court, you can lose your legal rights on the claim entirely, barring your recovery. South Carolina’s statute of limitations for motorcycle accident cases is generally three years from the date of the incident but this deadline can be altered depending on other laws that may be applicable to your case and the details of your particular case. Consulting with an attorney at the beginning of your case is important to learn what rights exist on your claim and how to protect them.
