More than 2,000 people were injured or killed in a motorcycle accident in South Carolina in 2017. It’s been well documented that motorcycle accidents are particularly dangerous, and those involved are more likely to suffer injuries than those in passenger vehicles. This also means that after a motorcycle accident, it’s likely that victims will require serious medical treatment and may miss a significant amount of work.
The compensation provided by a successful accident claim offers significant financial support for bikers and their families. That’s why many accident victims hire an attorney to help protect them after a crash. It’s important to understand that legal representation is not only critical in these types of claims, it’s also affordable.
Helpful Fee Agreements for Myrtle Beach Motorcyclists
At The Derrick Law Firm, our attorneys understand that accident victims are already under a significant amount of physical, emotional, and financial stress. That’s why we offer a fee agreement that can help victims and their families obtain the representation they need.
Our lawyers work with motorcyclists on a contingency fee basis—an arrangement where the client only pays for the attorney’s work if the claim is successful. The lawyer will take a certain percentage of the compensation award, and the attorney and client agree on this percentage from the start of their working relationship. After a successful claim, the insurance company pays the attorney, who takes his fee, and then passes the remaining compensation on to the accident victim. If the case is not successful, the client does not have to pay attorney’s fees. However, the injury victim may be responsible for minimal costs such as filing fees, document fees, and costs for obtaining/deposing witnesses.
