South Carolina Motorcycle Crashes & Victim Injuries

Lugoff, SC - Man Dead After Motorcycle Accident at Hwy 60 & Lachicotte Rd

When you ride a motorcycle, it goes without saying that you are more vulnerable to traffic hazards. Motorcycle accidents increased by 5.8% in 2010, with 1,819 total wrecks, 1,984 injuries, and 81 deaths. In South Carolina, the average age of a motorcycle accident victim is 41. Motorcycle accidents account for 7.7% of all road deaths.

Motorcycle riders are permitted to use the state’s roads and highways all year due to the state’s pleasant, mild climate. Although riding a motorbike may be both fun and useful, there is a risk of injury. Due to the poor condition of South Carolina’s roads, motorcycle riders risk being involved in single-vehicle accidents as well as collisions with larger, more powerful vehicles.

Every motorist should know the necessity to share the road with motorcycle riders safely. However, some reckless and hazardous drivers remain on the road. Motorcyclists face significant risks due to defective bikes, roadwork, and other potentially hazardous road conditions, all of which increase the likelihood of a collision or, in the worst-case scenario, a fatal accident.
