Charleston Motorcycle Accident Lawyer

The reality is that many motorists are distracted and do not exercise caution when operating their vehicles, creating dangerous situations for those riding motorcycles. As a motorcyclist, every collision has the potential to be devastating. In fact, even non-contact accidents – where a motorist forces a motorcyclist to swerve or lay their bike down to avoid being struck – can be deadly. Unfortunately, after a collision, motorcycles often face bias by those reporting or investigating the accident.

If you have been injured in a motorcycle accident, you need a Charleston injury attorney that understands the issues involved and the difficulties you face in recovery. At Mickelsen Dalton, we have significant experience handling serious injury claims. We are trial lawyers skilled at representing those who can’t always fight for themselves.
