If I Wasn't Wearing a Motorcycle Helmet, Do I Still Have a Valid Personal Injury Case?
We don't judge – However, at Anthem Injury Lawyers, we strongly advise you always to wear a helmet when riding a motorcycle. If you are wearing a helmet when you crash, your odds of surviving increase dramatically. All things considered (we know you wanted to look incredible), 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 of their fault, they can still recover compensation for their injuries. If a court finds that a motorcyclist is 50 percent or less to blame for the accident, then their case motorcycle can still recover damages. Still, the award will be reduced by the percentage of the motorcyclist's 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.
