Motorcycle Accidents in Nevada

Although it can be an amazing and thrilling experience, riding a motorcycle has always come with risks. A total of 305 recorded deaths from 268 motorcycle accidents occurred in Nevada in a recent four-year period. City streets were the sight of over 70 percent of motorcycle accidents in the state. Clark County historically has the greatest number of fatal motorcycle accidents across the state. Nearly 80 percent of motorcycle crashes nationally result in fatalities or significant injuries, and riders are almost 28 times more likely to be killed in the event of a crash. Motorcycle riders are incredibly exposed in the event of a crash, meaning that they are much more likely to suffer life-changing injuries and damages. That is why it is even more important that you partner with a lawyer to pursue a claim for compensation.

Riding in a passenger automobile offers greater protection than that of riding a motorcycle. It is just simple physics. This means that in the event of an automobile accident, riders run a very high chance of suffering severe injuries. After a collision, it is typical for wounded motorcycle riders to incur damages including growing medical bills, lost wages, and a persistent struggle to make ends meet. In the event that you or a loved one sustains injuries in a motorcycle accident, you should be sure you can maximize the benefits of your case by working with a qualified attorney.
