Can I get a motorcycle accident settlement in South Carolina if the at-fault driver had no insurance, or if I’m the victim of a hit-and-run?
Yes. But here’s a warning for hit-and-run victims: you’ve got to satisfy some extra legal requirements set by South Carolina law.
Here’s where your settlement comes from, which may surprise you. South Carolina mandates all motorcycle insurance policies contain coverage called uninsured motorist coverage, or UM. UM pays settlements when you’re hit by a driver without insurance or a hit-and-run driver.
Before you get excited thinking you’re home free because you’re dealing with your own insurance you paid for, here’s a shocker.
The Shocking Truth About South Carolina Motorcycle UM Claims
Your own insurance turns against you. It doesn’t matter you’ve paid thousands in premiums over the years, or that you’re a loyal customer. In the world turned upside down of accident injury cases, this is a situation where it seems the customer is always wrong.
You’ll be faced with an adjuster trained to get the insurance company out cheap and quick, even if it means they're cheating their own customer. Due to prejudice against riders and many other good reasons, you need an experienced motorcycle accident attorney’s advice.

Good News! You May Have More to Lose Than You Think
The best thing about UM is, you might be able to increase your settlement with money from UM policies on other vehicles in your household. You’re not limited to coverage on just your motorcycle—it can be other motorcycles, cars, or trucks. This is a complex legal tactic called stacking. And as you have already seen, your insurance company is not going to help you with this.
You need a skilled motorcycle accident lawyer to analyze your policies to protect your rights to maximum coverage and help you obtain full compensation for your injuries.
If you’ve been seriously hurt by a hit-and-run driver or a driver with no insurance, you’re already double-victimized. Don’t set yourself up to be triple-victimized by your own insurance company.
It won’t cost you a thing to get your questions answered by us. Call toll-free at 888-230-1841 or fill out a Get Help Now form to get started. You can also schedule a FREE, EASY strategy session where we won’t pressure you to hire us.
What can I do if the at-fault driver doesn’t have enough insurance to cover my South Carolina motorcycle accident injuries?
If you’ve been wise or you’re lucky to have a great insurance agent, you can use your OWN policy to cover your South Carolina motorcycle accident, if you need to.
In helping motorcycle accident victims recover from serious crashes over the years, we’ve seen three sad facts too many times:
- South Carolina only requires drivers to carry a minimum of $25,000 in liability insurance. That’s the coverage used to help innocent victims hurt in crashes. But that doesn’t even scratch the surface for serious motorcycle injuries like broken bones, surgery, or brain injuries.
- Most at-fault drivers don’t have assets to pay for the damage they’ve done if they don’t have enough insurance to cover it.
- That leaves innocent victims holding the bag.
To find out what coverage you’ve got, or to get your questions answered about your case, call the Spartanburg, South Carolina motorcycle accident attorneys here at 888-230-1841.
How Your Own Policy Can Rescue You—If You’ve Got the Right Coverage
The coverage you need is called underinsurance, or UIM. UIM is designed to help victims get a better settlement when the at-fault driver doesn’t have enough liability insurance.
It gets better: In the right situation, you can actually ADD ON MORE COVERAGE from other vehicles in your household through a legal tactic called “stacking.” And it doesn’t matter what type of vehicle it is, as long as it has UIM on it. It can be a motorcycle, a car, or a truck.
To answer questions folks have—and should have but don’t know to ask—download our FREE BOOK on crash cases, which we designed to help victims of South Carolina car and motorcycle accidents.
UIM Can Be Crucial in Your Motorcycle Accident Settlement, and the Law Requires Your Agent to Offer it Properly
To show how vital UIM is in protecting you and your family, read some real-life stories from our own clients:
- UIM provides desperately needed financial aid to motorcycle brain injury victim
- Car accident settlement involving a drunk driver
South Carolina law recognizes the importance of UIM in protecting accident victims. It requires your agent to offer you UIM in a specific way. If he didn’t, you could get the coverage legally imposed on your policy to help your accident claim. But spotting whether it got offered the right way requires a keen legal mind with experience in car and motorcycle insurance coverage cases.
If you’ve got concerns about UIM coverage in your South Carolina motorcycle accident case, you need an experienced legal professional. You can call toll free at 888-230-1841, fill out a Get Help Now form, or contact us with a live chat.
FREE POINTER: If you review your policy and find you have no UIM, do two things, RIGHT NOW, to protect yourself:
- Call your agent to get the coverage.
- When you talk to your agent, increase your liability limits so you can get the most UIM possible, since you can’t have more UIM coverage than liability coverage. You will probably be shocked to find out how cheap UIM coverage is—but if you need it, it’s worth its weight in gold.
Now we’ve covered the good news, there’s one thing you need to know, and you won’t like it.
Just Because You Use Your Own Policy Doesn’t Mean Your Case Is Sunshine and Roses
Here’s the biggest shock for folks who need UIM: When you make a UIM claim, your own insurance company turns against you. Let that sink in.
That’s right—after all that money you paid in premiums, your own insurance company defends the at-fault driver like their own.
All because your insurance company wants to keep its money from you, no matter how bad you need it, or that you paid them for the service. Because insurance companies can be harshly prejudiced against riders, it's critical for you to get some legal adivce before dealig with them, so you don't risk killing your case.

How will the insurance company contact me after a South Carolina motorcycle accident? Should I talk to the insurance claims adjuster or talk to an attorney first?
The insurance company contacts you through its claim adjuster, who may also go by the names claims specialist, claims rep, or claims handler. The adjuster usually works for the liability insurance company of the at-fault driver who hurt you. Strangely, if the at-fault driver had no insurance or didn’t have enough, but you have special coverage on your policy, the adjuster actually works for your insurance company.
Every adjuster is a highly trained professional with one job—get the insurance company out of your claim fast and cheap. The adjuster may be friendly, but he’s not your friend. Deal with him at your own peril.
Our experience in South Carolina motorcycle accident cases leads us to tell you there is one question you should REALLY be asking.
When Do I Need an Attorney for a South Carolina Motorcycle Accident?
At Holland & Usry, we don’t use high-pressure sales tactics, and we’re honest. Our honest advice for a motorcycle accident victim is to get some legal advice BEFORE you speak with the adjuster.
Here’s why: You’ve got to overcome unjustified biker bias. That’s the prejudice against riders that non-riders have. They presume you’re a rowdy risk-taker—an outlaw with no regard for the rules of the road. Insurance companies capitalize on it. The adjuster will work to lay a trap for you. Walking in unaware can doom your claim.
We can help you avoid these pitfalls, even if you don’t hire us or you have the rare motorcycle accident case you can handle on your own. If you are better off not paying an attorney to help you, we’ll tell you.
Information Is Power, and We’re Here to Give it to You
The adjuster’s power over you is based on one thing—he knows more about these cases than you. You need information when you’re dealing with an experienced adjuster who may have handled thousands of claims and is talented at cheating motorcycle accident victims like you. Talking to an experienced South Carolina motorcycle accident lawyer will only cost you a little time, but the reward could be peace of mind—which is priceless.
If you don’t think getting a little legal advice before talking to an adjuster is a good idea, check out this video from a car accident client who states the insurance company’s arguments against paying his wife’s settlement blew his mind—and he’s an insurance agent! Be sure to take a look at the fight adjusters can put up when you tell them you’re considering an attorney.
At Holland & Usry, instead of cheesy commercials or single-digit phone numbers, we offer South Carolina accident injury victims empowerment through education. For you, that might start with downloading our FREE BOOK on crash cases, which we wrote to answer questions victims often ask, plus the questions they SHOULD ask.
We make getting in touch with us easy: you can just call toll-free at 888-230-1841 or fill out a Get Help Now form. Feel free to schedule a FREE, EASY strategy session to get your questions answered and get you pointed in the right direction before you deal with an adjuster.
Can you sue a business if you get hurt in an accident caused by a company driver or an employee driving his employer’s car or truck?
Yes, if the at-fault driver was driving for work. It’s based on the ancient legal doctrine of “respondeat superior,” which holds employers liable, or legally responsible, for the acts of employees. The reason behind it is, if an employee hurts someone on the job, the employer is more likely to be financially capable of bearing the responsibility to pay a settlement.
Today, car, motorcycle, and tractor-trailer accident settlements come from insurance. But the truth of respondeat superior remains: businesses with company vehicles often have enormous amounts of insurance to pay settlements.
However, they aren’t going to give it away—even if you were badly hurt. (Keep reading to find out why!) You also need to look out for whether the employer is actually directly responsible for your injuries.
The Employer May Be Directly Responsible for Your Injuries
If you’re seriously hurt by a company car, semi-truck, delivery van, or any other company vehicle, you need every avenue of potential fault explored. And your case may allow you to hold the employer directly liable for carelessness in managing its employees or equipment.
We see this a lot in our trucking cases. Trucking companies can be legally responsible for tractor-trailer accidents caused by violations of federal safety regulations, like allowing or forcing truckers to drive excessively long hours or failing to require proper pre-trip inspections. Proving violations caused the crash can be vital to your case, as it can lead to punitive damages.
But any employer can be held liable for careless training or supervision of employees who drive. That includes giving a company vehicle to an incompetent or dangerous driver.
Warning: If You’re in a Serious Accident With a Company Vehicle, They’re Probably Protected—and You’re Not.
Many victims are shocked to discover businesses often start defending themselves before the ambulance drives the victim off from the crash scene. It’s a cold, hard fact: corporations and insurance companies will protect their money, not help you. They will circle the wagons and unleash a hail of professionals to avoid responsibility for the crash: insurance adjusters, attorneys, experts, investigators, and whoever it takes.
Don’t let them pull off the cover-up and cheat you. Get your questions answered by a Spartanburg, South Carolina car accident and tractor-trailer accident attorney who’s used to handling cases against employers for company vehicle accidents.
I’ve written a book for folks just like you that covers the basics of car accident cases, and you can download it here for free. Check out how other folks like you rate their experiences with us on an attorney review website we don’t own and Google+.
What should I bring to my first meeting with a car, motorcycle, or semi-truck accident attorney?
The easy, short answer is: for your first meeting with a car, motorcycle, or tractor-trailer accident attorney, bring every piece of paper that might be related to your case. If you don’t have many papers, or even any papers, don’t worry—one thing good lawyers do is chase down the evidence. We’ll do it for you! Don’t think you need to delay meeting because you don’t have enough evidence just yet.
Documents and Evidence You Can Bring To Our Spartanburg Office
To help you get organized for the meeting, below are documents and evidence that are most helpful for an accident attorney to evaluate your case at the first meeting. Again, don’t worry if you don’t have all of these. They are listed pretty much in order of importance:
- Accident or collision report. The officer should have given you a form at the scene. That isn’t actually the full report, but it’s a start. If you have gotten the full report, bring it. Don’t worry if it says you’re at fault—the report could be wrong, and we might be able to right it.
- Pictures of anything related to your case. That includes pictures of your wrecked car and the at-fault driver’s car if you are lucky enough to get that. Pictures from the crash scene can be especially powerful. Pictures of your injuries can speak volumes—especially if you have gory cuts or broken bones. Don’t forget pictures related to your treatment, like cast or stitches removal. Another extremely powerful piece of evidence can be pictures showing your disabilities such as using a cane or walker or sleeping in a recliner.
- Contact information for any witnesses. Hopefully, the most important witnesses are recorded by the investigating officer on the crash report. But we also need witnesses who can testify about their observation of the pain and suffering inflicted on you by the accident, especially any physical difficulties or disabilities as a result.
- A medical provider list summarizing your treatment. This can be especially helpful, especially if you’ve undergone extensive treatment from many providers over a long time. This helps us hit the ground running on getting some of the most important evidence in your case—medical evidence of your injuries from clinical professionals. It also lets us know who we need to request medical bills from so we can help you get compensated for those.
- Letters or emails from insurance companies. This helps identify the claims rep, or adjuster, handling your case, and may give us a clue how they intend to defend against it.
- Any medical records you have. Don’t worry about not having all of your medical records—we can get those for you. But you have any notes from any doctor, bring them along because that helps give us a clue sometimes of the extent of your treatment and the nature of your injuries.
- Medical bills and receipts for payment. This helps us identify providers and prove that you paid them.
- Your health insurance card or your Medicaid or Medicare card. If you have any of these options to pay your medical bills, use them because that’s what they are for and they are the very best option. While you do have to repay them from your settlement, it just works out a whole lot better for you to do it that way, I promise.
- Lost wage documentation, if you lost time from work as a result of the injuries. You can be compensated for lost wages. Try to let us know a rough estimate of the total time you missed from work. You can bring pay stubs or even tax documents proving your lost income.
- Color copies of your photo ID, like a driver’s license. We likely need this for our file. It just helps identify you and may help us find information on the crash using your driver’s license number.
- Your declarations page for your own insurance. This is also called a “dec page.” It summarizes your coverage on your own auto policy. You get it from your auto insurance company when your policy renews. Believe it or not, seriously injured victims can recover compensation from their own insurance policy if they have the right kind of coverage. It’s called underinsurance, or UIM, and you need to KNOW WHAT IT IS. Having this coverage can make all the difference in the world, as shown by these cases we’ve handled:
- Drunk Driving Crash Victim's Settlement Tripled By Extra Coverage
- Attorney Finds More Insurance to Help Severely Injured Kids
- Multiple UIM Policies Used to Help Motorcycle Accident Brain Injury Victim
If you have time, organize everything into different categories and put it in a folder or file. This could save us a whole lot of time getting ready when you come in for your first meeting.

Can I sue a drunk driver for a South Carolina car accident?
Yes. Your case will be complicated because it involves both aspects of the American justice system: criminal and civil. Worse, it’ll also involve an insurance company with no desire to do right by you.
- The criminal case is brought by the State to convict and punish the DUI driver. If convicted, the defendant faces fines or even prison if someone got seriously hurt. But this aspect of the law won’t require the defendant to compensate you for all your losses and harm.
- The civil case fills that gap by giving you the right to compensation for your injuries, like property damage to your car, medical bills, lost wages, damage to your marriage, human loss, and potentially the biggest factor in your case, punitive damages. Unlike most South Carolina cases, your case won't face legal limits on punitive damages.
Why DUI Wreck Victims Should Hire An Experienced Lawyer
In the criminal case, the State has a lawyer called a solicitor or prosecutor, to help convict the driver. While that lawyer is on your side, she isn’t your personal lawyer. She can’t bring a civil case to compensate you.
There’s a lot of reasons you need an attorney of your own, but here are six major ones:
- The key reason is the DUI driver has a major advantage over you: he’s backed by a multi-billion dollar monster—his auto insurance company. It’s got one goal in your case: stonewall you and beat you down into a cheap settlement. Their claims representatives prey on folks who don’t know their rights or are just too hurt to fight. (Read about the tricks up their sleeves.) To avoid cheating yourself out of the money you and your family deserve and likely need, hire a professional of your own to level the playing field and go on the offensive. If the adjuster finds out, he'll fight to prevent it- find out why, and how to handle these tactics.
- You’ll especially benefit from a drunk driving accident attorney who can find and develop the evidence supporting punitive damages to increase your settlement, even if you’re not hurt in the crash- you can discover how we've done that in a real case. An experienced car crash lawyer can get evidence from the criminal case to potentially enhance your settlement. You need an attorney who knows what to look for and how to use it. The key is knowing how to present it to the insurance company in a convincing way to compel a good settlement.
- An experienced DUI car accident attorney can give you the most vital guidance on a solid settlement value. Valuing a case is an art and a science. To gain the peace of mind it’s done right, you need a professional. You can talk to our Spartanburg attorneys by calling (864) 582-0416.
- A skilled car accident attorney can help find all aspects of auto insurance coverage available to pay your settlement. If the at-fault driver doesn’t have enough insurance, hopefully you’ve got coverage on your own policy called underinsurance. While the available underinsurance may bring initial relief, I’ll spare you the shock on how this turns out—your own insurance company turns against you to contest your claim as if they were the insurance company for the at-fault driver.
- To add insult to injury, some DUI victims are shocked to learn the at-fault driver didn’t even have insurance. In that situation, you can use your own policy, with a coverage called uninsurance. Again, just because it’s your own insurance company, they are not your friend anymore.
- THIS IS CRITICAL: You also need an investigation into where the defendant drank alcohol. If he got drunk- or drunker- at a bar or restaurant that let him drive away, you might have a case against the bar or restauarant for overserving the drunk driver. These cases are hard-fought and legally complex.
There’s a Lot More to Your Case
I’ve written a book answering many questions car crash victims ask—and need to ask, but don’t know to. Download the book I’ve written as service to folks like you.

Can I make a claim or sue for a hit-and-run accident in South Carolina?
Yes, but South Carolina law contains some harsh requirements you need to know, or you will lose your rights:
- Report the accident to the police immediately. It’s best to notify the law enforcement agency that would ordinarily investigate the crash at its location. It could be local police, the sheriff’s department, or the highway patrol.
- If you suspect you know who hit you, or you know someone else like a witness who might know, report it. You can’t be careless in helping police determine the identity of the other car or the identity of the other driver.
- Here’s a shocking inside tip: if your crash wasn’t caused by physical contact with the unknown vehicle, you need an independent witness to the crash. What kinds of crashes are we talking about here? The classic example is getting run off the road into a tree by a driver who just keeps going. No, he never hit you, but he ran you into the tree. That witness must sign an affidavit—a sworn statement—describing the facts of the hit-and-run accident. The affidavit must contain a specific disclaimer: “A false statement concerning the facts contained in this affidavit may subject the person making the false statement to criminal penalties as provided by law.”
A Real Spoiler Alert: Where the Money Comes From
This is the first shock many victims get. The compensation for your injuries comes from your own policy. It’s good that the law provides the right to recover from a policy you paid for when you get victimized by an unknown driver. But, it soon becomes stunning for many victims when their own insurance company turns on them. That’s when many realize while the agent is their friend when she sells them the policy, the insurance company becomes an enemy when they try to use it.
These cases are like any other case. You’ve got to fight for yourself and make sure all your evidence is properly presented to give yourself the best shot at proper compensation. That’s why it's always a good idea to contact an experienced auto accident attorney before you consider dealing with the insurance claims rep, called an adjuster.
Going It Alone Can Get You Nothing, or Close to It
While the law seems to further victimize the victim, it’s got to be followed, or you could lose your right to compensation you might desperately need to repay medical bills and make up for lost income, not to mention what I call human loss and, potentially, what could be a huge issue in your case the insurance company will fight hard against—punitive damages.

How can an accident attorney help a brain injury victim and her family?
Whether you’re a family member or a survivor, coping with a traumatic brain injury from an accident can be overwhelming. You’re right to wonder if one more thing on your list—seeing a lawyer—can help.
The short answer. If you or a family member suffered a brain injury, you may be dealing with someone who’s unconscious or not in their right mind to make complex legal decisions. And soon the insurance company will descend, hoping to take advantage of your inability to handle an overwhelming situation to force a cheap settlement that you’ll regret the rest of your life. You could forfeit rights to compensation you’ll need in the future to cover lost wages or mountains of medical bills.
That’s why people like you need an experienced lawyer to lighten your load and show you the way. We help make sure the insurance company doesn’t take advantage of you, and if needed, get folks appointed in court to manage the survivor's affairs.
Specific Ways a Brain Injury Attorney Can Help
Here are just a few:
- Provide peace of mind. It’s the number one unspoken benefit of an attorney you trust. You will know your legal rights and the evidence you need to win. Your rights and evidence may differ depending on whether you’re involved in a car wreck or motorcycle accident, an 18-wheeler accident, a slip and fall or trip and fall, or a work injury. Helping you learn those rights is one reason we wrote books on car and trucking accident and workers’ compensation cases. When you have an attorney you trust, you know you’re protected. You can return your full energy to the medical recovery process, knowing your legal care team is in place and at work for you.
- Help with guardianship and conservator proceedings for adult brain injury survivors. These Probate Court procedures appoint a person, often a family member, to handle medical, financial, and legal affairs while the survivor is incapacitated by injury.
- Gather evidence related to the case, or protect your right to it, before it disappears. Victims have to prove how they got hurt. You can’t risk someone destroying evidence you need to prove your right to potentially vital legal compensation.
- Secure witness statements and contact information for later use. You don’t have time to run these people down.
- Assess the amount of available coverage to compensate you for your car accident damages. You might have coverage on your own policy.
- Deal with insurance company representatives. They look out for the insurance company, not you, no matter how nice they seem. You don’t need to worry about responding to their demands or waiting for them to call you back.
- Guide you in protecting your rights to future medical care, whether it’s in the legal system or provided through work injury benefits in workers’ compensation. In workers’ compensation cases, you may qualify for permanent and total disability benefits or even highly extensive brain injury benefits—you can bet the insurance company will fight tooth and nail against paying these extremely expensive cases.
You Should Wonder, But Not Worry
I’ve been doing this long enough to know most people prefer seeing the dentist more than a lawyer, but sometimes you just need professional help. If you’ve got a brain injury or a family member with one, that time is now.
And if you’re wondering what it will be like to meet with me, here’s what happens at our free, no-obligation first meeting. And if you need me to, I can come to you.
My mom caused a wreck when I rode with her, and I got badly hurt. Can you get a settlement against a family member who causes a car accident when you're the passenger?
Yes. There’s no legal exception for family members who hurt relatives by causing an auto accident. And there shouldn’t be—of all the people who should look after your safety, it’s your relatives!
You don’t have to worry about them paying your medical bills out of their own pockets, either. Their auto liability insurance will do that. By the way, you should use health insurance to pay your bills because it’s a good deal, and it helps you.
You may have access to more insurance than you think to help pay for your injuries. If you’re hurt bad enough, you hopefully have the most important auto insurance of all—underinsurance (UIM)—on your own policy.
If making this claim against a family member makes you uncomfortable, that’s natural. But should your discomfort keep you from replacing your losses, especially when it comes from insurance that’s paid for to cover them?
A chief unspoken benefit of having a lawyer you trust is that we take on the things that make you uncomfortable, so you don’t have to. We protect your rights to maximum compensation, search for all insurance that could cover your injuries, and handle the insurance representative who’s out to take advantage of you.
If you’ve got questions about a wreck, we know you need answers. That’s why I wrote a free book you can download called I Just Got In A South Carolina Car Accident, Now What? And you can always fill out our Get Help Now form to get answers from an experienced South Carolina car accident lawyer.
What’s the leading cause of motorcycle accidents?
It’s not riders. A 1998 study by the National Highway Transportation Safety Administration (NHTSA), a federal government agency, found the top cause of motorcycle accidents:
Other drivers (i.e. cars or trucks) who violate the rider’s right of way.
So take heed, cage drivers! Look out for motorcycles! NHTSA’s comprehensive analysis of the problem gives tips to help both drivers and motorcyclists avoid tragic or even fatal accidents:
- Drivers, avoid the deadliest of sins. Don't drive distracted. Cars and trucks present way too many options to develop fatal habits that take your attention off the road. When driving, just drive. No food, no phone calls, and certainly no texts. Just the road ahead.
- Riders should follow these tips and wear bright colors.
