Why do You need a North Charleston Motorcycle Accident Lawyer?
As an experienced North Charleston motorcycle accident lawyer, I understand that a motorcycle accident can change your life drastically. Motorcyclists do not have the protection that car drivers have and as such, many crashes between cars and motorcycles result in the motorcyclists dying. Unfortunately, the majority of these wrecks are due to car drivers. Seventy-five percent of wrecks involving cars and motorcycles are the fault of the person driving the car. A motorcyclist is 35 times more likely to die in an accident than the driver of a car.
