How to File a Lawsuit After a Motorcycle Accident in Nevada?

Unfortunately for bikers, in a collision between a car and motorcycle, the car almost always wins. A motorcycle accident can have a devastating impact upon a biker's life –often leading to physical disability and and physical suffering or preventing the victim from performing his or her required job functions.

Frequently, the driver of a car who causes a motorcycle accident may be impaired, distracted, or otherwise negligent. And when that happens, victims of motorcycle accidents have legal recourse to file a lawsuit for payment and compensation for their injuries.

If you or a loved one has been injured in a motorcycle accident in Nevada – or if a loved one has died in a motorcycle accident – Nevada's motorcycle accident laws may entitle you to compensation for:

  • Medical bills,
  • Lost wages,
  • Physical and occupational rehabilitation,
  • Pain and suffering,
  • Counseling for physical or emotional distress, and/or
  • Wrongful death.

In most cases, insurance companies will attempt to settle your lawsuit for far less than you deserve. But our caring Las Vegas personal injury lawyers know Nevada's motorcycle accident laws. For a free consultation to discuss your specific case, call us at 702-DEFENSE (702-333-3673).

U.S. & Nevada Motorcycle Accident Injury Statistics

According to the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), though accidents involving cars are near all–time lows, deaths from motorcycle accidents have never been higher. In 2013 alone, motorcycle accidents accounted for 30 deaths in Nevada. The number of people injured in motorcycle accidents is alarming.

The CDC reported that between 2001 and 2008 more than 34,000 were killed in motorcycle accidents in the United States. Even more alarming, during that same time period, an estimated 1,222,000 people were treated in emergency rooms for non-fatal injuries sustained in motorcycle accidents.

Injuries sustained by motorcyclists are often serious – head and neck injuries accounted 22% of the non-fatal injuries suffered by motorcyclists from 2001 to 2008.

Why should I hire an attorney?

Insurance companies will frequently attempt to avoid paying victims of an accident or lower the amount paid to victims by arguing that the motorcyclist was partially to blame for the accident or was at fault in causing the accident.

It has hard enough to argue against these well-oiled machines when you are well. When you have been injured, it can add stress to your situation and delay your healing time.

An experienced Nevada motorcycle accident attorney can help you cut through the red tape and pursue a lawsuit to get you compensation you need and deserve. Often, simply knowing that a lawyer is involved is enough to get the insurance company to loosen the purse strings.
