Motorcycle Accidents Can Cause Terrible Injuries

As any person who has ridden a motorcycle knows well, riders have limited protection. They are exposed. Unfortunately, when collisions happen, it is often the motorcyclists and/or their passengers that bear the brunt of the impact. Nearly 80 percent of motorcycle accidents have an injury reported to them. Further, motorcyclists in Nevada are nearly 25 times more likely to be catastrophically injured or killed in a crash than are the drivers of passenger vehicles. 

Safety Tip: Wear a motorcycle helmet every time you hop on your bike in Nevada. Nevada law requires all motorcycle riders and passengers to wear helmets that meet standards set by the U.S. Department of Transportation. This mandatory helmet law applies regardless of the rider’s age. Not only is it the law, it is the best way to protect your health. Motorcycle helmets reduce the risk of a traumatic brain injury (TBI) by more than two-thirds. 

Steps to Take After a Motorcycle Collision in Boulder City

Hurt in a motorcycle crash in Boulder City? You need to take immediate action to ensure that your health, safety, and well-being is protected. Do not rely on any insurance adjuster to help you manage the aftermath of a crash. Here are four things to do after a motorcycle collision in Boulder City: 

  1. Stop Your Motorcycle and Call the Police: In Nevada, motorists—including motorcyclists—are required to stop their vehicle and remain at the scene of a crash. The failure to do so is a serious violation, it could even lead to a criminal charge. If you are hurt in the crash, make sure it is reported to state or local law enforcement, such as the Boulder City Police Department or the Clark County Sheriff’s Office. 
  2. See a Doctor for Any Motorcycle Injuries: All motorcycle accident injuries should be evaluated by a physician. Some of the most common motorcycle crash injuries—including back pain, whiplash, and concussions—arise with a delayed onset. You could be far more seriously hurt than you realize. The sooner you see a doctor, the better. Be aware that you need medical records to bring a motorcycle injury claim in Nevada. 
  3. Carefully Document Your Crash: Motorcycle accident liability is based on fault. For this reason, it is especially important that collisions are comprehensively documented. Injured motorcyclists should take photographs of the crash damage and the surrounding scene. They should also get the contact information for any person who witnessed the crash. 
  4. Speak to a Lawyer Before an Insurance Adjuster: Insurance companies put their own financial interests first. They do not look out for what is best for injured motorcyclists and their families. Prior to providing any recorded statement to an insurance adjuster, you could consult with an experienced Boulder City motorcycle accident attorney. 

What to Know About Motorcycle Liability in Nevada

Motorcycle accident liability is based on fault. A motorcyclist is not automatically liable for a crash. While riders unfortunately often face unfair stereotypes as “risk-takers”, the reality is that the research shows that multi-vehicle collisions are actually more likely to be caused by other drivers. In Nevada, the driver or other party who is found to be “at fault” for a motorcycle crash can be held responsible for the resulting harm. Every motorcycle crash in Boulder City should be thoroughly investigated by an experienced attorney. 

Notably, understanding motorcycle liability in Nevada also requires recognizing the state’s modified comparative negligence rule (N.R.S. § 41-141). The legal principle allows for the distribution of fault among all parties involved in an accident. It means that if a motorcyclist is found partially at fault for an accident, their compensation will be reduced by their percentage of fault. As long as the motorcyclist’s share of the blame does not exceed 50 percent, they can still recover damages. In Nevada, an injured rider cannot hold another party liable for their crash if they are found to be at fault for the majority of the blame. 

You Must Bring Your Claim Before the Statute of Limitations Expires

Under Nevada law (N.R.S. § 11.190), there is a two-year statute of limitations for most types of personal injury claims, including motorcycle accident cases. If you fail to file a lawsuit in a timely manner, your motorcycle accident case can be dismissed without a hearing on the merits. Insurance companies waste little time in building a defense. Do not get behind in the process. Speak to an experienced Boulder City motorcycle injury lawyer as soon as possible after a bad accident.

Hurt in a motorcycle crash in Boulder City? You have the right to seek financial compensation for the full value of their damages—including for economic losses and non-economic damages.

  • Motorcycle repairs or motorcycle replacement; 
  • Emergency room treatment, including ambulance costs;

  • Pain and suffering & emotional distress; 
  • Long-term disability and physical impairment; and
  • Wrongful death of a family member. 

Motorcycle Crash Claims in Boulder City: Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs) 

Should I Look for an Attorney Who Has Experience With Motorcycle Accident Claims?

Yes. Motorcyclists face some unique challenges in the legal claims process. For this reason, it is always best to look for a Boulder City attorney who has prior experience handling motorcycle accident injury claims. 

Can a Motorcyclist Recover Compensation in Nevada if They are Partially at Fault?

Yes. In Nevada, a motorcyclist can recover compensation if they are partially at fault for the accident, as long as their fault does not exceed 50 percent. The reason is that Nevada has a modified comparative negligence law. It allows for compensation to be adjusted based on the degree of fault. 

Will I Be Required to Testify in Court in My Motorcycle Injury Case?

Probably not. While it is possible that you may be required to testify in court in your motorcycle injury case, it is more common for such cases to be settled out of court. Litigation in personal injury cases in Nevada happens only a small percentage of the time. A lawyer can help you take action to pursue a full and just settlement in your motorcycle accident case.
