Proving Fault in a Myrtle Beach Bicycle Accident Case
Our team investigates every accident case we handle, seeking to establish:
- What happened
- Why it happened
- Who is liable
- What damages occurred
This generally allows us to prove negligence. The negligent party – whose careless actions caused the crash – is usually legally liable for the victim’s damages. Negligence occurs when:
- The driver has a legal obligation to do something, such as following a traffic law.
- They fail to do what they should. In this example, they did not follow the traffic law.
- Their failure to follow the traffic law causes a crash.
- The victim suffered injuries and other compensatory damages.
When a driver causes an accident, the bike accident victim should not pay for the injuries they suffered or the related costs. Bicycle accident injuries are often serious, including:
- Traumatic brain injuries (TBIs)
- Spinal cord injuries (SCIs)
- Other head, neck, and back injuries
- Internal injuries
- Loss of a limb or loss of use of a limb
- Other disabling injuries
We Tirelessly Advocate for You
This is one reason why having a Myrtle Beach personal injury lawyer from Anastopoulo Law Firm on your side is so important. The at-fault driver could try to blame the accident on you or say you contributed to your own injuries. This could impact your financial recovery, leaving you with less than you need to cover your expenses and losses.
Moreover, our team can mitigate allegations like these, presenting strong evidence to show the driver caused the bike collision and should be legally responsible for compensation to cover your damages.
Civil Lawsuits in South Carolina Bicycle Accidents have a Filing Deadline
Under S.C. Ann. § 15-3-530, there is a deadline for suing the driver who hit you. If we cannot get the insurer to agree to a settlement, we may need to sue the at-fault motorist to recover compensation for you. This statute gives us:
- Three years from the accident date for injury cases
- Three years from the date of death in wrongful death cases
This law does not apply to every case. Exceptions exist and could mean you have less time to sue. In addition, getting started early allows us to gather more evidence and build a stronger case for you. Enlisting our help as soon as you can following your accident is a good idea.
