Our Ultimate Victory: Meeting Your Needs.
Mr. Edwards is an experienced negotiator and adviser regarding insurance matters. After discussing your case, he and his team of paralegals will work on personalized options to pursue fair compensation and seek justice for you.
There are specific considerations for personal injuries due to motorcycle or pedestrian accidents in South Carolina, which include the following:
- If the pedestrian is not at fault for the accident, the liable party should cover all the damages suffered by the victim.
- A negligence per se doctrine applies if a car ignores a red light and hits a pedestrian. This means the pedestrian is not obliged to present evidence against the negligent driver, but only evidence of the traffic violation.
- For motorcycle accidents, South Carolina authorities use a modified comparative rule to determine the percentage of fault of each party.
- All South Carolina motorcycle riders need to be insured. The basic insurance expected is liability insurance for property damage and bodily injury.
