We know how to fight for ample compensation that helps pay for all of your damages, including medical bills, lost wages, and property damage.
Common Causes of Motorcycle Accidents
The start of a legitimate motorcycle accident claim begins with identifying the cause of the crash and how another party caused it. We can work with outside experts if needed to thoroughly investigate the accident. There is evidence out there that proves you did nothing wrong. It is only a matter of finding and utilizing it correctly.
Motorcycle accidents are often caused by:
- Motorists who change lanes without checking mirrors and blind spots.
- Motorists who turn left in front of motorcyclists in opposing traffic.
- Roadway defects and hazards like potholes.
- Motorcycle part defects like brake or tire failures.
Is Nevada a Fault or No-Fault State?
When determining how much compensation is owed to you by the party that caused your motorcycle accident, it is important to understand how Nevada handles ‘fault.’ In personal injury terms, fault is liability, and the more a party is liable for an accident, the more compensation they can be ordered to give the injured party. Nevada uses a 51% comparative fault rule, which means you can recover compensation from the defendant as long as you are not 51% liable or greater.
Furthermore, your fault percentage will lower your recovery in equal proportion. For example, if you are 10% liable for your motorcycle accident and you had $100,000 in damages, then the most you could reasonably expect from the defendant is $90,000.
Nevada Helmet Laws & Motorcycle Accident Claims
In Nevada, all motorcycle riders and passengers must wear a helmet that has been approved Department of Transportation (DOT). When not wearing a helmet while your motorcycle is in operation, you endanger your health and your liability if a crash happens. Riders who don’t wear a helmet can have their liability significantly spike, even if they didn’t do anything directly to cause the crash. Instead, they will have done something to cause or worsen their head injuries.
How Our Lawyers Can Help
You can depend on our Boulder City motorcycle accident attorneys to:
- Investigate your accident
- Calculate your damages
- File your claim
- Fight with insurers for you
Perhaps the most important reason why you should hire a motorcycle accident lawyer to represent you is to challenge the insurance company's bias against you. Insurance companies love to say that all motorcyclists are reckless and, therefore, they must be to blame for any crashes they are in. Our attorneys know how to anticipate and stand up to this bias, so you can stand a real chance of getting the compensation that you deserve.
