“I was in and out. I barely remember what happened. One moment I’m riding down the street, and out of nowhere, this car pulls out in front of me. The driver wasn’t paying attention and pulled out into the intersection. I didn’t have time to react. I barely saw it coming, and it’s like time froze for a sec. My bike smashed into the side of their vehicle, and I flew over the hood and across the pavement. I felt the impact but didn’t actually feel it — until I did. And it was horrible.
“If I didn’t have a helmet, I probably would have been killed. I ended up with a road rash across my shins and knees, a dislocated shoulder, bruises all over my body, and a herniated disc. My body was killing me. My motorcycle was a lost cause. It was totaled.
“It’s hard not to be furious about the whole thing, especially waking up every day to the pain I didn’t have before this idiot wrecked into me. The other driver’s insurance company called to ask me questions like what happened was my fault and then had the nerve to hit me with a lowball offer that barely would pay to replace my bike, much less pay for my medical bills. And what about my job? I haven’t been able to get back to work, so technically, I’m still losing money.”
Let’s face it: accidents happen. But when they happen to you, that old saying doesn’t offer much comfort — especially if your motorcycle is destroyed and you’re laid up in bed trying to recover from your injuries.
Stories like these are not unique. We’ve helped countless motorcycle accident victims in Greenville and throughout South Carolina, North Carolina, and Georgia get the money they deserve after an injury. If you or a loved one find yourself in a situation like this, reach out to us for help. The consultation is free, and there are no out-of-pocket costs for us to represent you.
Pricing is straightforward and simple in personal injury, but of course, the first thing that comes to mind is how much is a lawyer going to cost.
Here’s the good news:
There are NO out-of-pocket costs. Consultations are FREE. And, you ONLY pay a fee AFTER we win your case and you get paid.
If you do not win, we get nothing, and you pay ZERO fees.
Nothing. Nada. Zilch.
When we are successful, we earn a third of what is collected.
The average settlement takes nine to twelve months from beginning to end.
Some cases may be shorter, and some can take longer. And that is why we earn a third of the case value — because we already know the average turnaround time with the insurance company is nine months, which means we will have to float the cost of attorneys and staff time and doing legal work and the back and forth with the insurance company for (on average) about nine months before we can even think to earn a dime.
Of course, we’re just as incentivized as you to speed things up because that is how we earn our fees, but it’s important we do everything we can to get you the absolute best outcome. You come first.
We represent our clients using what is called a contingency fee agreement. What this means is that we accept all of the upfront risk and costs associated with your personal injury case. We begin by examining the facts and then start gathering evidence and testimony, police reports, medical reports, and anything else that will bolster your case.
While we are doing this, we’re working with you to get you the treatment you need to get better. We’ll focus on getting you what you need (a vehicle, medical treatment, etc.) to get through things while we are working up your personal injury claim.
Once we have everything together, we send the insurance company a demand letter. A demand letter is simply us telling the insurance company that these are the damages as we see it, and this is what we are demanding you pay our client.
At that point, the insurance company can either accept the offer or refuse. It’s our job to go back and forth with them until we reach a settlement amount that is fair and makes sense for you. At the end of the day, you have to be comfortable with any offer before it is accepted.
If the insurance company doesn’t want to play ball, we file a lawsuit. Your case will then go from the negotiation phase to litigation, and we start preparing for trial. Sometimes it goes this far. Most times, it doesn’t. It doesn’t because we can only help people where there is a clear case of negligence from the other driver.
The person who caused the accident is known as the negligent party.
Negligence is defined as “failure to use reasonable care, resulting in damage or injury to another.”
Different states have different rules on how they decide who is “at fault”.
South Carolina is an at-fault model with comparative negligence. This means that so long as you are under 50% responsible for your accident, you can file a claim against the driver that caused your injuries.
Yadda. Yadda. Yadda.
If you searched “Greenville sc motorcycle accident lawyers” or looked up a personal injury lawyer before, you’ve probably seen the ridiculous claims and high dollar amounts for settlements and verdicts that most accident attorneys post all over their website.
Here’s the reality: Big settlement amounts mean either wrongful death or catastrophic injury. People do not win millions of dollars without losing a limb or losing a loved one. That’s just reality, so don’t get swayed by big numbers because if you have a claim value that high, your life will NEVER be the same. We’ve definitely gotten big payouts for clients, but it’s not a celebration — it’s a time of mourning or sadness. The victory is bittersweet. Most people would not choose the money. They’d go back to before the accident and live their lives as they were before.
That being said, we do all we can do to maximize your claim value. The more money we collect from the insurance company, the more money you receive and we earn.
If you are looking for a motorcycle accident lawyer in Greenville, SC, please call now to speak to one of our attorneys. We want to hear about your case and help guide you through the personal injury claim process.

(which means we’re in this fight together)
Let’s face it — you have questions.
You should not speak with the insurance company. The chances are that their attempt to contact you is a trap to get you to say something to harm your case and cost you money.
Not wearing a helmet could reduce your damages somewhat because it could make you partially at fault if you suffer head injuries, but it likely would not keep you from getting some money for your injuries.
There may be other responsible parties. You should speak with an attorney to review your case, and they will advise you whether there is anybody that you can sue for the accident.
Let us take you from victim to victory.
