Motorcycle Crashes in Nevada

Riding a motorcycle is a wonderful and exhilarating feeling, but it does not come without risks. From 2014 to 2018, there were 305 reported fatalities from 268 motorcycle crashes across the state of Nevada. Nearly 70 percent of motorcycle accidents in the state occur in urban areas. Clark County had the highest number of deadly motorcycle accidents across Nevada during that time period. Statistics show that almost 80 percent of motorcycle crashes nationwide end in death or serious injury.

Motorcycles do not provide the same level of protection as riding in a passenger car. This means that riders are at serious risk of being seriously injured in the event of an auto accident. It is common for injured motorcyclists to sustain significant damages after a crash, including mounting medical bills, time missed from work, and an ongoing struggle to pay for everyday expenses.
