Common Causes of Motorcycle Accidents
We want to determine what caused your motorcycle accident because that uncovers liability. In Nevada, as long as you are not more than 50% liable for your wreck, you can sue the other party for compensation. By investigating the circumstances and details of your accident, we can find the cause and pin liability on the other motorist or whoever else might have contributed to your accident and injuries.
Some common causes for motorcycle accidents include:
- Dooring: Motorists who leave their vehicles when they are parked immediately adjacent to a lane of traffic need to check their mirrors for approaching motorcycles. If they do not, they might cause a motorcyclist to crash into their door, which causes a “dooring” accident.
- Distraction: Distracted drivers are a danger to everyone, but they are particularly dangerous to motorcyclists. Under ideal conditions, a motorist is less likely to notice an approaching or nearby motorcycle due to its smaller size. When a driver is distracted, they are even more unlikely to see a motorcyclist, increasing the risk of them crashing into or turning right in front of them.
- Intoxication: Drunk drivers are unpredictable and have difficulty staying in their lanes. A slight nudge against a motorcyclist can be enough to cause them to lose control of their ride, resulting in a violent wipeout.
- Illegal left turns: An inordinate number of motorcycle accidents involve a driver turning left in front of an approaching motorcyclist, even though they did not have a green arrow that would permit their left turn. This type of accident can also be contributed to distracted or inattentive drivers who are not paying enough attention to opposing traffic.
Does Wearing No Helmet End Your Case?
Nevada requires you to wear your motorcycle helmet whenever you ride your motorcycle. If you did not have one when you were in a motorcycle accident, then your claim could be jeopardized. But it will not be automatically ended or canceled. You can still file a claim if you were not mostly liable for the accident.
