Motorcycle Accident Lawsuits in Myrtle Beach

A man who was injured while riding his motorcycle during last year's Bike Week is suing Horry County and two state agencies.

In the lawsuit, the motorcyclist says that he was following the signs that government agencies had placed to keep motorcyclists on the "bike loop," which instead led him to a dirt road that was not safe for motorcycles.

Although there are times when government agencies are the negligent actor causing a motorcycle wreck, more often it is a careless driver or another motorcyclist that is at fault. Why are there so many motorcycle accidents in Myrtle Beach, and what should you do if you are hurt in a motorcycle wreck?

Seatbelts and Comparative Negligence in SC

The statistics don't lie: You are far more likely to survive a car accident if you are wearing your seatbelt. But about 15 percent of people still don't strap themselves in.

If you're the kind of daredevil who isn't motivated by a fear of death, here's another reason to buckle up - it can save you money.

If you file a personal injury lawsuit after a car accident, you may be entitled to less money if you weren't wearing your seatbelt.

Yes, you need a prenuptial agreement

Negative stereotypes regarding prenuptial agreements lurk around every corner. Popular media often portrays these important planning documents as the tools of self-serving, un-romantic individuals who are betting on the losing end of their marriage.

In actuality, couples from every walk of life in South Carolina use prenuptial agreements as they are intended — to protect their personal assets in the upsetting event that their marriage does not stand the test of time.

New Year's Eve DUI Arrests in Myrtle Beach

Most people make New Year's resolutions to lose weight, or quit smoking, or go to the gym more often.

But 31 people in Horry County probably made a completely different kind of promise this year - to get out of jail and to never get arrested for DUI again...

State troopers arrested 26 people for DUI in Horry County, and local police charged another five people with DUI over the New Year's holiday.

Rollover Accidents in SC - Myrtle Beach PI Lawyers

You are less likely to be involved in a rollover accident than just about any other kind of auto wreck.

But, if you are in a vehicle that rolls, you are more likely to die than if you are involved in most other types of traffic accidents.

Although rollovers make up only about 2 percent of crashes, they account for a disproportionate number of deaths. About one-third of all traffic deaths are the result of rollover accidents, and the survivors are more likely to suffer serious injuries.

SC Internet Crimes and How to Avoid Them

The internet is still like the wild, wild west - you can use it to find fortune, fame, or even love.

It is also a minefield of online scams - some that are simple and easily avoidable, and others that are complex and often successful.

For example, police have finally caught the Nigerian prince who has been scamming Americans for the past decade: a man "who served as a go-between for an international team of scammers running a 'Nigerian prince' email scheme" was recently arrested in Slidell, Louisiana.

How can I avoid online scams?

And, what should I do if I have been accused of an internet crime in SC?

Can I Afford an Auto Accident Lawyer in SC?

"What's it going to cost me?"

It's one of the first questions you ask when you pay for any services, including those of an attorney.

There are several different attorney fee arrangements that are used in SC. Which one your attorney will use depends not only on your situation but also on what kind of legal help you need.

Drunk Driving Accident Lawsuit Filed Against SC State Senator

A state senator facing charges of DUI and lying to police is now being sued for the damages he allegedly caused by driving drunk.

The Senator is alleged to have crashed his Mercedes-Benz into the rear of an SUV on I-26 in November. He and his wife were charged with providing false information to police, in addition to the senator's DUI charges, because they claimed that the wife was driving although at least one witness saw them switch seats...

"I've just been told to keep my mouth shut about it and see what comes out in court," he said. "I think we've got a pretty good case."

If the DUI victim who filed the lawsuit can show that the senator was driving, that he was under the influence (his BAC was .09), and that she was damaged as a result, it sounds like she might be the one with a good case...
