Every week, a person is killed while riding their motorcycle on Nevada roads. If you or a loved one has been involved in a motorcycle accident, chances are that the motorcyclist was seriously injured.
Motorcycle accidents are common in Nevada, especially at night, when other drivers cannot see the motorcyclist. Although alcohol or drugs may be factor, if you or your loved one were not on alcohol or drugs at the time of the accident and were not the cause of the accident, you should seek representation of a experienced accident and injury lawyer to protect your rights. If your loved one died in an accident which was not his fault, you need a lawyer who can get you the compensation you deserve. Attorney Nadia von Magdenko has over a decade of experience in accident injury cases and is available for a free consultation concerning your case.
According to the National Highway and Safety Administration, in recent years, for the amount of miles driven, motorcyclists were about 37 times more likely than passenger car occupants to die in a motor vehicle traffic crash and 9 times more likely to be injured. Also, although only less than 5% of all vehicles on the road are motorcycles, motorcyclists account for 14 percent of total traffic deaths. When a motorcyclist uses a helmet, which is the law in Nevada, it greatly increases in the chances of survival in a motorcycle accident.
With gas prices going up, a lot of people are using a motorcycle or scooter to get around the Las Vegas Valley. Given the increased number of motorcycle and scooter riders on the road, it is important for everyone to watch out for motorcyclists and scooter riders, to reduce deaths and injuries on the roads. However, if you are reading this, chances are an accident did happen and you need legal representation to make sure you are not a victim twice.
