MOTORCYCLE ACCIDENTS

The weather in Las Vegas makes motorcycle seasons and accidents more frequent then in less temperate climates. Biomechanical forces on the body in a motorcycle collision are more severe than those in comparable auto accidents. Many times the damage to the motorcycle is not indicative of the damage to the rider who gets thrown from the motorcycle in the crash. A Las Vegas motorcycle accident attorney needs a secure understanding of biomechanics and injuries resulting from these types of crashes.

A motorcycle accident is often one of the more deadly accidents, with injuries tending to be more serious, and medical costs being higher. Motorcyclists are often injured by negligent car drivers,

  • In the majority of cases, the other vehicle violated the motorcyclist’s right-of-way and caused the accident.
  • Motorcycle riders are approximately 25 times more likely to be killed in a road accident.
  • Motorcyclist’s are 5 times more likely to be injured than a person riding in a passenger vehicle.

Nearly every motorcycle accident involves injuries. These injuries can be quite serious, involving substantial costs and lengthy rehabilitation. A motorcycle accident lawyer can provide you with information about personal injury law, as well as motorcycle accident claims.

By working with experienced motorcycle accident lawyers, victims can have some control and participation in ensuring that their rights and interests are protected. Call us today!

There are a wide range of causes for motorcycle accidents, some of which include:

  • Limited visibility - Intersections, buildings, parked vehicles, shrubbery, etc. 70% of motorcycle accidents occur at intersections.
  • Road hazards - Potholes, oil slicks, puddles, debris, and uneven pavement.
  • Invisibility of motorcyclists - The motorcyclist is undetected by other drivers. Truck drivers are at even more risk of missing a motorcyclist drivers of these huge vehicles often hit blind spots and do not see the comparatively small motorcycle, which can result in collision.
  • Motorcycle defects - Fuel system leaks, which present an increased risk of fire in the post-crash phase.
  • Weather - Heavy rain, snow, hail, etc. can lead to decreased visibility and hazardous driving conditions.
