Motorcycle Accidents in South Carolina
Although riding a motorbike may be thrilling, it also exposes the rider to extra risks on the road. In South Carolina, there were 1,819 motorcycle accidents in 2010, which is a 5.8% rise from the year before. 1,984 individuals were hurt in these incidents, and 81 people lost their lives. In South Carolina, a motorcyclist is typically 41 years old when they are killed or seriously injured in an accident. 7.7% of all fatalities on state roads are the result of motorcycle accidents.
The last thing you should be concerned about after a motorbike accident in South Carolina is receiving compensation for your losses. It’s probable that you won’t be able to cover these damages out of pocket since motorcycle accidents often cause considerable financial losses. This does not necessarily mean, however, that your insurance company is ready to help you.
Since insurance companies are for-profit businesses, it only seems sensible that they would want to maximize their financial performance. That profit will often result in a loss for you. It’s likely that even if you are hurt and in agony after an accident, they won’t come to your rescue.
This implies that motorcycle riders will have a harder time receiving reimbursement. The insurance company may have attempted to humiliate you by making an insultingly low settlement offer or by attempting to shift the blame for your injuries onto you. Even worse, inaccurate and outdated stereotypes about motorcyclists may make it more challenging to be fairly compensated for one’s efforts.
