Motor vehicle accidents: Crash leaves motorcyclist dead

The majority of highways and major arteries across the state of South Carolina these days experience high volumes of traffic and are constantly congested. Although these conditions are dangerous for any motorist, they are extremely dangerous for motorcyclists. Motorcyclists are totally exposed to the elements, so any kind of accident involving a motorcycle could quickly turn fatal. In the last few years, deadly motor vehicle accidents have increased dramatically across South Carolina.

A recent accident in Pickens County left one man dead and four others injured. The accident occurred on a local road during the evening hours. According to the South Carolina Highway Patrol, a motorcyclist was attempting to pass a car. During his pass attempt, the motorcyclist was struck head on by a vehicle traveling the opposite direction, reports say.

Tragically, authorities say the motorcyclist was not wearing a helmet and was pronounced dead on the scene. Reportedly, a passenger on the motorcycle and three others in the other vehicle were injured in the crash. Emergency personnel transported them to a local medical center for treatment. 

As roadways become more and more crowded across South Carolina, all those who get behind the handlebars of a motorcycle or the wheel of a motor vehicle are at an increased risk for an accident. Families who have suffered injuries or the loss of a loved one due to negligence in motor vehicle accidents could greatly benefit by seeking the services of a knowledgeable and skilled attorney. A successfully litigated lawsuit could result in vital and much-needed compensation to help families cope with such a stressful and traumatic experience.
