18 Apr In A Motorcycle Wreck? Call A Lawyer.
If you have ever ridden a motorcycle in Las Vegas, you realize how terrible a lot of the drivers are. You will see drivers running through lights that have been red for a long time before they made it to the intersection, and you will see drivers texting while they are driving. You see people weaving around and crossing the yellow lines, and you know they have been drinking. You will see people on the phone and eating. You will see people changing lanes with no signal and without even looking around. Riding a motorcycle in Las Vegas is dangerous, and every time you get on your bike you are risking getting hit by a car. There are far less instances of motorcycle riders being distracted or not paying attention than car drivers simply because it is nearly impossible to text while riding a bike, or any of the million other things that cause so many accidents. The majority of accidents involving motorcycles are not the fault of the biker, but instead are simply caused by careless car drivers hitting people on bikes. The majority of bike wrecks end up with injuries, even if they are low speed. This is because it is almost impossible to go down on a bike without being injured. Put all this together and you realize pretty quickly that the chances of getting hurt in an accident are higher on a bike, and the majority of time it is not the biker’s fault. You need to prepare for what will happen if you are hit by a driver while on your bike, because the difference between getting what you deserve and getting a settlement that does not take care of you adequately will depend on the skills of your lawyer. To successfully sue an insurance company or private individual for the injuries caused to a biker by their actions, you need an attorney who has experience with these kinds of cases.
Just because the lawyer on the billboard has a bike in his ad does not mean that he is the best personal injury lawyer. Chances are that he is actually appealing to the camaraderie between bikers and hoping that because he looks like a biker you will trust him with your case. This is not the best way to think about it, and the injuries sustained in a motorcycle wreck are the same types you would receive from any type of vehicle crash if your body were to be thrown from the vehicle. The best personal injury lawyers are going to understand that your injuries must be compensated for in totality, not just the injuries that a “biker lawyer” would know. Road rash is an injury from falling off a bike, and a “biker lawyer” is not going to understand how to sue for that injury better than a “non-biker lawyer.” The best personal injury lawyers are going to understand that your injuries of all types are going to be part of the case. They are going to understand that getting rear ended on a bike causes physical harm. They are going to understand that if you hit the ground and your head bounces, you may have neck injuries in addition to external injuries. They will understand that you need a doctor to assess these injuries, and their job it to get you compensation for them. We are the motorcycle wreck injury lawyers of Las Vegas.
