We Fight for the Damages You May Be Entitled to Recover
If you were injured in a motorcycle accident caused by a negligent at-fault driver, S.C. Ann. §15-32-210 entitles you to recover the costs of your:
- Medical expenses
- Loss of income
- Home care assistance
- Property restoration
- Pain and suffering
- Physical impairment
- Mental distress
After reviewing your case, we might suggest other damages to pursue that are not listed here.
Our Team Collects Evidence to Support Your Claim
Our team may also ask you for additional documents that prove the worth of your financial damages. These documents might include:
- Medical records and bills
- Employment and salary records
- Vehicle repair bills or replacement values
- Documents that confirm your prognosis and the anticipated care your injuries might require
If the Other Driver Is Uninsured or Underinsured
If the at-fault driver was uninsured or underinsured, you may still have options to pursue compensation for your damages.
An underinsured motorist has an insurance policy that does not provide enough coverage to compensate you for your injuries and their expenses. An uninsured motorist does not have insurance at all. So, what can you do in either of these scenarios?
In South Carolina, uninsured motorist (UM) is mandatory and included in your auto insurance coverage at the minimum limit of $25,000. Underinsured motorist (UIM) coverage is an optional policy that you can purchase. UIM covers the victim’s losses when the at-fault driver’s minimum coverage is insufficient.
Our team may be able to help you leverage UM or UIM benefits to cover the costs of the accident.

- Anyone in either vehicle was fatally injured
- Either vehicle sustained more than $1,000 in damages
