Information About Bicycle Accidents
According to a 2012 report issued by the Alliance for Biking and Walking, cyclists in South Carolina are more at risk of suffering injury or death in an accident than anywhere else in the nation except for one state.

Proving Fault for a Cycling Accident
Cyclists have very little protection in the event of a collision, and will typically take great precautions to avoid being struck by an automobile. Drivers, on the other hand, frequently allow themselves to become distracted by things such as texting on cell phones, or will fail to check blind spots before backing out of a driveway or before turning at an intersection. Our Columbia injury lawyerwill carefully investigate the circumstances of your accident to find evidence which proves that the driver is at fault, such as witness statements or testimony from an accident reconstruction professional. While we will pursue an out of court settlement to your case if at all possible, we will not hesitate to take the claim to a jury trial if necessary to secure the compensation you deserve.
