Deadly Motorcycle Crashes in South Carolina
Non-helmeted riders were involved in nearly 73 percent of fatal motorcycle accidents in South Carolina between 2011 and 2015. Motorcycle riders are nearly 27 times more likely to be killed in a car accident, with nearly 80% of motorcycle accidents resulting in death or serious injury, according to crash statistics. South Carolina has a higher rate of fatal motorcycle accidents than the national average.
Motorcycle riders have little protection when colliding with a motor vehicle, even if they take all necessary safety precautions. In the event of a collision, they are more likely to suffer serious to life-threatening injuries. Motorcycles are much more vulnerable to common road hazards such as potholes, ice, cracks, and slick roads. Motorcycle accidents can leave riders paralyzed, amputees, or with other permanent disabilities, making it difficult to live their lives as they once did. After a serious accident, wrongful death lawyers in Spartanburg can assist injured people and their families in seeking just compensation.
