19 Apr Motorcycle Wrecks Result In Injuries
Every time that you go out in a vehicle, you run the risk of being in an accident. Even the most careful drivers get into accidents sometimes, even if they are not doing anything careless or malicious that causes the wreck. Other times, you are involved in a wreck that has absolutely no fault of your own associated with it, and you are simply the other vehicle that is struck by someone. If you are involved in an accident, there is a good chance that you will sustain some form of injury and that the other party should compensate you for the damage they have caused. This is why drivers are required to maintain insurance on their vehicle, so that any damage they cause to others will result in the compensation to that party. It removes the potentials for a person to be found guilty but not have the money to compensate the party they have harmed. Maintaining insurance is the law, and all drivers must follow that law.
Riding a motorcycle is a special circumstance in Las Vegas. You are required to maintain insurance and a valid driver’s license like all drivers are. You are required to follow the same rules of the road that car drivers are. The differences happen when you start looking at the amount of injuries that happen in accidents compared to those simply involving cars. Bike riders are far more likely to be injured as a result of a crash than car drivers are, and the overwhelming majority of accidents that involve motorcycles result in injuries of some kind. Many car wrecks result in damage to the cars, but everyone walks away without injury because of the safety features of the car. These might be airbags or seat belts, or additional features built into the car to keep the driver from being injured in a wreck. Motorcycles have almost not features integrated into the bike to keep riders safe in this same circumstance, and the majority of safety items for bikers involve clothing or helmets. This means that there is nearly nothing to protect you in any crash, low or high speed. Nearly any contact with a motorcycle from another vehicle will result in the rider falling from the bike and hitting the ground. If they are moving at even a slow rate of speed, there is a good likelihood that they will lose skin as it contacts the pavement in the slide. These injuries are as a result of the contact from the other car, or the necessity to “lay the bike down” to avoid a situation. All of these injuries are the fault of the other party, and a good motorcycle wreck attorney is going to be able to get you compensation for them.
