You Can Afford a Myrtle Beach Motorcycle Accident Lawyer

At Derrick Law Firm Injury Lawyers, our motorcycle accident attorneys understand that accident victims are already under a significant amount of physical, emotional, and financial stress. That’s why we offer a free consultation and contingency fee agreement that can help victims obtain the representation they need after being injured in a motorcycle crash. 

Our motorcycle accident lawyers work with riders on a contingency fee basis, an arrangement where the client only pays for the attorney’s work if the claim is successful. The accident 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. The percentage of attorney fees is computed and deducted from the settlement or award before other expenses and costs related to your case are then deducted.

Once the claim is settled, the insurance company issues the settlement funds to the attorney. After attorney's fees are deducted, any additional case-related fees and costs are then deducted separately, and the attorney passes the remaining funds to you. There may also be liens associated with your medical treatment that would be paid out prior to you receiving your funds. If the case is not successful, you will not pay attorney fees and may only be responsible for costs like filing fees, deposing witnesses, and obtaining medical records.

How to Find a Myrtle Beach Motorcycle Accident Attorney Who Will Help You

To begin your search for an attorney, find names of potential motorcycle accident attorneys in Myrtle Beach by asking friends and family, checking the local bar association website, or doing a simple internet search. This can give you a few names of attorneys who might be right for you. Then, set up a meeting. Most injury attorneys offer consultations, so accident victims can meet with the lawyer, ask questions, and understand their claim.

At the consultation, ask questions that will give you an idea of what the attorney does, what to expect, and what kind of rapport you may develop. Some helpful questions to ask include:

  • What kind of experience do you have with motorcycle accident cases?
  • What is your fee agreement?
  • What do you think of the claim?
  • What challenges might you face with this claim?
  • How do you handle client communication?
  • Who will I talk to if I call to share information or get updates on my claim?

We encourage you to learn more about our Myrtle Beach motorcycle accident lawyers even before you schedule a free consultation by reviewing what our clients have to say about us and the results we’ve achieved in other motorcycle accident cases.
