Fatal Motorcycle Crashes in South Carolina
From 2011 to 2015, nearly 73% of fatal motorcycle crashes in South Carolina involved riders who were not wearing helmets. According to crash statistics, motorcyclists are nearly 27 times more likely to be killed in a car accident, and almost 80% of motorcycle accidents result in death or serious injury. South Carolina has a higher than average rate of fatal motorcycle accidents.
Motorcyclists have little protection when colliding with a motor vehicle, even if riders follow the necessary safety protocol. In the event of a collision, they are more likely to sustain serious to life-threatening injuries. Motorcyclists are much more vulnerable to common road hazards like potholes, ice, cracks, and slick roads. Motorcycle accidents can leave riders paralyzed, amputees, or with other permanent disabilities that limit their ability to live their lives as they did before. After a serious accident, wrongful death lawyers in Johns Island can assist injured parties and their families in pursuing just compensation.
