Investigating Your Moncks Corner, SC, Motorcycle Crash
After we decide to work together, our team goes to work investigating your accident and building a solid case for negligence and liability against the at-fault passenger car driver. As a part of this process, we will identify, collect, and analyze all possible evidence to show:
- What happened to cause the accident
- Who is at-fault
- The full range of losses and expenses you suffered
- The nature of your injuries
- Your prognosis

Negotiating a Settlement After a Moncks Corner Motorcycle Accident
South Carolina law requires all drivers to carry at least a minimum amount of auto liability insurance. If we can show the other motorist caused your accident, we can file a claim based on their auto liability insurance policy. If we lay out a strong case for compensation in this claim, we may be able to try to negotiate a fair settlement agreement with the insurance company.
Entering the settlement negotiation process is the most common next step in these cases, although the insurance company may deny your claim. If the insurer does deny your claim — or if they refuse a fair settlement agreement based on the facts presented — we can litigate your case.
Filing a Lawsuit Against the Driver Who Caused Your Moncks Corner Motorcycle Crash
If we exhaust all other options to recover the full payout you deserve, we will file a personal injury lawsuit against the at-fault driver in your case. This may allow us to hold them liable for the injuries and damages you suffered. Under South Carolina’s statute of limitations, we usually have three years to file this type of legal action.
If we have to litigate your Moncks Corner motorcycle accident case, we will be with you every step of the way, guiding you through the process. We can represent your best interests to the court, and ask for a verdict in your favor and a financial award that covers your full accident-related expenses and losses.
