Deadly Motorcycle Crashes in Nevada

Motorcyclists are exposed to the dangers of the road due to their exposure on the back of a bike. In Nevada, motorcycle accidents have become a serious safety concern. Motorcycle fatalities in the state increased by an astounding 32 percent from 2020 to 2021, growing from 60 to 79. Statistics show that nearly 80 percent of motorcycle accidents end in death or injury, and riders continue to be overly represented in national roadway fatalities. If someone close to you is killed in a motorcycle crash, you need to partner with a trained attorney who can help you pursue a wrongful death claim in order to recover lost compensation.
