The Potential Complications of a Motorcycle Accident

As a motorcyclist in Reno, you understand that you could be involved in an accident at any point. You also know it is worth the risk, as you love taking to the open road with the wind in your face.

If you are involved in a motorcycle accident due to the negligence of the other party, here is something to remember: You have legal rights.

Your job is to seek the maximum possible compensation, as you will need the money to pay for a variety of damages, such as medical bills and ongoing care.

Insurance companies are not in the business of paying out claims, so you need to work hard in order to receive the compensation you deserve. This often means turning down their first offer, knowing that they are trying to "low ball" you.

In some cases, underinsured motorist coverage comes into play. This can help you receive compensation if the other party does not have enough insurance coverage. Unfortunately, this is common in Nevada because drivers are only required to carry $15,000 per claimant in insurance coverage.

Do you have questions about your motorcycle accident? Are you hoping to receive compensation for your injuries? Don't wait around any longer. Our attorneys know which steps to take and how to improve your situation.

You can learn more about motorcycle accidents and injury payments by reading our website and blog. When the time comes, you can also contact us online or via phone to set up a consultation. From there, you will feel better about the future and your rights as a motorcyclist.
