MOTORCYCLE ACCIDENT LAWYER

K.C. Mangus Lohr is a South Carolina low country motorcycle wreck attorney who can help you.  She has more than 14 years of legal experience, handling all types of injury claims.  K.C. understands the thrill of two wheels and the open road.  For many motorcycle enthusiasts, it’s the closest they can get to true freedom.  Unfortunately, the open road is often crowded with distracted and negligent drivers who don’t want to share the road.  There’s a reason why you see bumper stickers that say “Watch Out for Motorcyclists”.

 

Even though many motorcycle enthusiasts wear protective gear such as helmets, eye protection, or specialized clothing and footwear, injuries to motorcycle drivers and their passengers are often serious and even deadly.  Broken bones, cuts and bruises, road rash, spinal cord injuries, brain injuries and death can result during a motorcycle accident.  Two wheels are not a match against automobiles and especially trucks.  Recovering from South Carolina motorcycle wreck injuries can be lengthy and expensive.  Past and future medical bills, lost wages, loss of employment and permanent disability can put a family into financial disaster.  It can be relatively easy to put a number value on these medical bills and lost wages in a settlement.  However, damages like pain and suffering, loss of enjoyment of life, and emotional distress are more difficult to determine how much an injured person is owed.  That is why it is important to seek K.C’s advice before settling any claims for motorcycle accident injuries.

 

If you have been injured or lost a loved one in a motorcycle accident caused by another driver, a motorcycle defect, or unsafe roads or other hazards, you may be able to file a personal injury or wrongful death claim in South Carolina.

 

As South Carolina motorcycle riders know all too well, car and truck drivers will frequently not give a motorcycle rider the same respect that they give operators of other vehicles. Motorcycle riders have the same legal right to operate on the highways and roadways in South Carolina as other licensed vehicles.

The National Highway Traffic Safety Commission publishes statistics about motorcycle accidents.  According to the most recent published data, 4,957 motorcyclists were killed and 93,000 motorcyclists were injured nationwide in 2012.   Per vehicle mile traveled, motorcyclists were more than 26 times more likely than passenger car occupants to die in a traffic accident.  Most fatal motorcycle accidents involve another vehicle, and most of these accidents involved a crash with a vehicle in front of the motorcycle.  Motorcyclists were much less likely to be killed when they were struck from behind.  In 41% of these fatal crashes, the other vehicles were turning left while the motorcycles were going straight, passing, or overtaking another vehicle.  Motorcycles were more likely to be involved in deadly collisions with fixed objects as compared to other vehicles.    

 

Helpful motorcycle information can be found at The Motorcycle Safety Foundation, which publishes a Motorcycle Operator Manual. This Manual discusses what steps you should take to prepare to ride, riding within your abilities, being in shape to ride, and earning your license.
