    Las Vegas, Nevada Motorcycle Accident Attorney

    Millions of people are injured in accidents each year in America.  Motorcycle accidents can be some of the most deadly of these accidents.  Motorcycle riders who are in an accident have a much higher chance of being seriously injured compared to passengers who were riding in an automobile.

    According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, there were 4,976 motorcyclists killed in motor vehicle traffic crashes in 2015, an 8 percent increase from the motorcyclists killed in 2014.

    Serious injuries from motorcycle accidents are so common because:

    • They are smaller than other vehicles, which makes them harder to see.
    • They lack the safety features that exist in passenger vehicles.
    • They are lighter than other vehicles.
    • Motorcycle riders are often thrown off their bikes during a crash.

    These are a few of the reasons why motorcycle accidents tend to have such serious consequences, such as permanent disfigurement, debilitation, and death.

    What are common examples of personal injury cases in Las Vegas?

    The most common example of a personal injury case is a car accident. A vehicle accident occurs when a driver fails to exercise reasonable care while driving. If you were injured in a car accident that was not your fault, you should consult an experienced Auto Accident lawyer in Las Vegas. Other common types of personal injury claims include:

    Do I have a personal injury case if I wasn’t wearing a motorcycle helmet?

    At Anthem Injury Lawyers, we advise you to always wear a helmet when riding a motorcycle.  If you are wearing a helmet when you crash, your odds of surviving increase dramatically. However, if you were not wearing a helmet, this will not necessarily mean that you cannot sue another driver who caused you to have an accident.

    Nevada law requires all motorcyclists in the state of Nevada to wear motorcycle helmets while they are on the road.  However, as long as a motorcycle accident victim’s injuries are not 51 percent or more his or her fault, the victim can still recover compensation for his or her injuries.  If a court finds that a motorcyclist is 50 percent or less to blame for the accident, then he or she can still recover damages, but the award will be reduced by the percentage of the motorcyclist’s own negligence.

    Experienced Las Vegas motorcycle accident attorneys will be able to help you deal will all aspects of your case, from helping you collect information from Las Vegas Police, Metro Police or Nevada Highway Patrol after the motorcycle crash, handling the insurance companies, or helping your family find the right specialists if you’re in critical condition.
