About South Carolina comparative negligence laws and motorcycle wrecks
South Carolina is a comparative negligence state, meaning you can recover damages for a motorcycle accident even while partially at fault. Typically, you can recover compensation from the insurance company of the other driver as long as your fault does not exceed 51 percent. Your recovery will be reduced by any percentage of fault that is assigned to you.
But even clear-cut accidents can become complicated. You may have been thrown from your bike because a car made a left-hand turn in front of you or you were rear-ended by a drunk driver. In many cases involving negligence, the driver of the car - and his or her insurance company - may try to assign a percentage of the blame on the motorcycle rider. The driver of the car or truck may claim that you were speeding and therefore you were partially at fault. That's not fair, but we can help to make things right.
If you've been in a motorcycle crash in South Carolina, it's important to contact a lawyer as soon as possible. At Twenge + Twombley, our lawyers will collect and preserve evidence such as skid marks, witness statements and vehicle damage to prove how the accident happened and who was at fault. We often work with accident reconstructionist teams who can testify in court to support your case.
