The at-fault party was riding his motorcycle with our client on the back when he lost control and rolled the bike over several times on US-17 near Myrtle Beach, SC. The South Carolina Highway Patrol Officer determined the cause of the wreck was due solely to the driver’s behavior and actions of driving too fast for conditions. Given the severity of the crash and the open and obvious injuries of our client, Horry County Fire Rescue immediately placed her on a stretcher and prepared her for transport to the nearest trauma Emergency Room, Grand Strand Regional Hospital. After undergoing several radiological scans, trauma assessments and multiple stitches, the client was discharged with a diagnosis of multiple abrasions and a closed head injury.
Unfortunately, this was not the only doctor visit our client had to attend because of the driver’s negligence. Shortly after the accident, she started experiencing pain throughout her lower back, right knee and left leg, as well as substantial scarring from her body sliding across the pavement on US-17. Our client followed through with all treatment but still suffered with scars that were present and visible.
The Derrick Law Firm settled this motorcycle accident case for $85,000.
