This could be avoiding an obstruction, merging lanes if a lane closes, and slowing down if they’re approaching a work zone. If a driver is reckless in a work zone, they can cause an accident. When a car accident results in injuries to you or a loved one, you can seek compensation for your injuries and damages.

Drivers want to feel safe. When you’re out on the road, you drive carefully in an attempt to prevent an accident and keep yourself safe. Unfortunately, accidents still happen sometimes, even if you’ve done everything in your power to avoid a collision.

Riding a motorcycle is thrilling. Sitting atop only two wheels and feeling the wind whip around you is an exciting part of being a motorcyclist, but those are also reasons why riding a motorcycle can be so dangerous. Safety while riding is vital—without the proper training, attention, and equipment, a motorcyclist could put their own life and others’ lives in danger.

Motorcycle accidents often cause serious injury to the rider because they are more exposed than they would be in a regular vehicle. Serious injuries can rack up extreme medical bills, cause you to miss work and lose wages, and accrue even more costs if the accident caused partial or permanent disability. Since the collision wasn’t your fault, you shouldn’t have to worry about any of those expenses. A Charleston motorcycle accident lawyer can help you recover financially so you can focus on physical and emotional recovery.

Staff, residents, and visitors can all transmit infections if the proper precautions and cleaning are not taking place in a facility.
