Motorcycles offer a sense of flexibility and freedom that many people do not find when behind the steering wheel of a larger motor vehicle. Riding a motorcycle can also make more financial sense for some people, as they both cost less and have better fuel efficiency.
When you first decided to purchase or operate a motorcycle, you likely received a lot of feedback from others expressing concern over your decision. They probably tried to give you advice that you were already planning to implement, such as always wearing a helmet, notifying other motorists of your plans to turn by making hand gestures, and protecting your limbs by keeping them covered.
When you’re riding your motorcycle, you want to focus on how open and free you feel with the wind whipping around you. You probably try not to think about the negative things that could happen, like getting into a collision. Even though you want to focus on the positives and have a good time, it’s important to consider what could happen if things go wrong.
Riding a motorcycle is a freeing experience—nothing but the bike is separating you from the road, and the air is whipping all around your body. Compared to a regular motor vehicle, you are more exposed to the elements while on a motorcycle. This is why there are motorcycle helmet laws to keep you as safe as possible while on your motorbike.
Even if you’re wearing a helmet, motorcycle accidents can be dangerous and cause serious damage to your body and bike. When someone else’s negligence has caused a collision with your motorcycle, you could use the help of one of our lawyers. At DiPiero Simmons McGinley & Bastress, PLLC, our motorcycle accident lawyers are here to help you through your claim and get you justice.
When you think of riding a motorcycle, you might exclusively imagine riding on a sunny summer day. But you can still ride your motorcycle into winter if you’re careful and know the safest ways to ride in colder weather. While it could be more dangerous to ride in the winter, there are ways to ride that can keep you on your bike in December and still have fun.
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.

I’m very pleased to have been represented by Lonnie Simmons in a very confrontational lawsuit. His reassuring and patient manner was a comfort even as we presented to the State Supreme Court. He won the case and my appreciation.
