Lexington, SC - Motorcyclist Hurt in Collision on N Lake Dr

The rate of fatal motorcycle accidents in South Carolina is higher than the national average. Motorcycle riders are nearly 27 times more likely to be killed in a car accident, with nearly 80 percent of motorcycle accidents resulting in death or serious injury, according to crash statistics. Non-helmeted riders were involved in nearly 73 percent of fatal motorcycle accidents in South Carolina between 2011 and 2015.

Motorcyclists have little protection when colliding with a motor vehicle, even if they 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, our car crash attorneys in Lexington can assist injured parties and their families in obtaining just compensation.
