THE MCMILLIAN LAW FIRM ALWAYS FIGHTING FOR JUST COMPENSATION FOR MOTORCYCLE ACCIDENT VICTIMS IN CHARLESTON, SC AND SUMMERVILLE, SC

The legal analysis involved in determining liability and damages for a motorcycle accident mirrors that of accidents involving passenger cars. The is the negligence of an at-fault driver, negligence which causes an accident to occur, an accident to causes injuries to be suffered by an innocent driver that demands a legal obligation on the part of the negligent party to compensate the innocent victim. 

The fundamental difference between motorcycle accidents and car accidents is that by their very nature, motorcycle accidents usually involve much more serious injuries and damages. It is easy to lump car and motorcycle accidents into the same train of thought. However, the very nature of a motorcycle accident and the injuries suffered make any negotiation or court proceeding against the insurer more complex and more combative.

The insurance company knows the statistics concerning the medical costs and damages paid in motorcycle accidents versus car accidents. As par for the course, the insurance company will see this as an opportunity not to pay a legitimate claim, but to maximize a profit by short changing what they know to be a serious claim with higher damages.

HIRING AN ATTORNEY TO HANDLE YOUR MOTORCYCLE CRASH CLAIM

The very first thing that any individual, especially the victim of a motorcycle accident, should do is seek immediate medical treatment. This rule has no exception! Do not let the threat of expensive medical bills be a reason not to seek treatment. There is no price and no substitute worth more than your physical well being. 

Once you have began receiving treatment and are ready to talk, that is the time that it becomes critical to hire a lawyer who has the expertise and the frame of mind to give you the personal service you deserve in your injury claim.
