MOTORCYCLE ACCIDENT ATTORNEYS IN LAS VEGAS, NEVADA
You have a motorcycle. You love it. You know what you're doing. You know the rules. You've been riding for years, and you've never had a problem.
But then you get into an accident because someone else didn't see you in their blind spot.
WHAT'S DIFFERENT BETWEEN A MOTORCYCLE AND CAR ACCIDENT?
Motorcycles and cars operate under different rules of the road—and car drivers often don't understand what those rules are or how they apply to motorcycles on the road.
This means that motorcycle riders aren't always given the same respect as other vehicles on the road, which can lead to dangerous situations where a car driver doesn't see a motorcycle or bike coming...until it's too late. We all know that car drivers do not always look at their blind spots. And motorcycle riders know there are dire consequences if a driver doe not see you on these Las Vegas streets.
And after a careless driver injures you or a loved one, you don't have a clue what to do.
WHAT DO I DO IF I WAS INJURED IN LAS VEGAS WHILE ON MY BIKE?
The first thing you should do is call the police and report the accident. This can help protect your rights in the future if there is any question about who was at fault for the accident. Police will also make sure that you can receive medical attention as soon as possible by calling an ambulance to the scene of the accident.
WHEN & WHY SHOULD I CONTACT A PERSONAL INJURY ATTORNEY IN LAS VEGAS?
Once you have confirmed legal liability with a Las Vegas Metro Police, and received the medical attention at the scene, you should also contact a Las Vegas lawyer as soon as possible. A Nevada attorney can start handling claims on your behalf, and prevent the insurance company from locking you into a quick, and often terrible settlement.
Unless you are extremely careful with what you say, we advise you not to directly speak with any insurance company following a crash. We, as your attorneys, can file claims and communicate with all insurance companies on your behalf. One of the first things the insurance company will do is to force you into a recorded statement with them. Once they have your account of the accident and your injuries, they will try to hold you to that. Even though you have not had time to process how you feel or even how the accident happened.
CAN I TRUST THE INSURANCE COMPANY AFTER A CAR ACCIDENT IN NEVADA?
The insurance company does not have your back—but that's where we come in. It's not just about who was at fault for the accident; there are a lot of other issues that come to play after an accident involving motorcycles, including:
Determining whether or not your injuries are permanent (and if they're permanent, how much compensation you can expect)
Determining what type of treatment you will need, and where to seek treatment in Las Vegas, Henderson and North Las Vegas
Figuring out if your injuries require extensive treatment (and if so, how much that treatment will cost)
Determining whether or not there were any witnesses at the scene of the crash (and if so, whether those witnesses were reliable)
Finding out if there's been any change in your health since the accident (and if so, how much compensation that injury warrants)
You need to receive treatment for your injuries, but you don't have health insurance and you don't want to come out of pocket for that essential medical treatment.
