We all know how dangerous traveling on the roads in Charleston, SC can be. Even simple or small mistakes by one driver can have serious consequences for another motorist and their families. Unfortunately, the family of Ladson motorcyclist, Jason Cray, was recently reminded of this when a Moncks Corner woman's SUV collided with the Cray on I-526 causing him to be ejected from the motorcycle. Cray was transported from the scene of the accident to St. Francis Hospital where he later passed away. The Charleston County Coroner's Office stated that the cause of Cray's death was blunt force trauma.
The driver of the SUV was issued a citation for improper lane change, which under South Carolina law, generally carries a relatively small fine and 2 points against your driver's license. The small fine and administrative penalties pale in comparison to the damages that were suffered by Cray and his family.
If you or a loved one has been injured in an accident as a result of someone else's carelessness or negligence, don't run the risk of giving up compensation that you may be entitled to by negotiating directly with an insurance carrier.
