Nevada is known for its lengthy roads, which are a perfect match for many motorcycle enthusiasts who enjoy riding to work or going for weekend runs with groups of friends.
However, because motorcyclists are accompanied by larger vehicles such as cars and big trucks, vehicle accidents can result in detrimental injuries and the worst cases, death. A careless driver can turn your life upside down in a matter of seconds. When a car or truck driver fails to signal a turn, obey the speed limit, or compensate for dangerous conditions, the consequences are often severe for motorcyclists, who face serious injuries and disability after a crash.
Research shows that most motorcycle accidents occur due to the negligence of another driver, especially drivers who engage in these activities:

As in other types of personal injury cases, proving fault is critical to the success of your motorcycle accident claim. Under Nevada’s comparative negligence rules, you will need to prove that another person or party was at least 51% at fault for the accident/incident that caused your injuries.
If you were partially responsible but less than 50% at fault, you can still recover compensation for your damages. However, your total recovery will be reduced by your at-fault percentage. So, if a jury decides that you were 30% at fault for the accident, you can only recover up to 70% of the total recovery that you would have otherwise been able to secure if the jury determined that you were not at fault whatsoever for the accident.
Unfortunately, motorcyclists often face an uphill battle when it comes to proving another driver’s negligence—they must often fight against the unfair yet nevertheless persistent misconception that motorcyclists are risky, unsafe drivers.
Neahusan Law will help you fight back against these stereotypes and work to convince the insurance company and the jury of the other motorist’s negligence.
Most people involved in motorcycle accidents come away with serious injuries. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), bone fractures in the legs are the most common type of injury to come from a motorcycle accident, with injuries to the head and chest is less common but more severe.
Nevada only requires drivers to have $15,000 per claimant in insurance coverage, meaning that the at-fault party often does not have enough coverage or general resources to pay for the cost of such catastrophic injuries.
If the costs associated with your injuries exceed $15,000, our Neahusan Law motorcycle accident attorneys will help you pursue an underinsured motorist claim through your own insurance company.
However, in worst cases, we will determine whether the at-fault party has any property or other personal assets that we can utilize to satisfy a judgment. For instance, the at-fault driver may not have adequate insurance, but they may own several houses free and clear. Neahusan Law attorneys can seek a judgment and go after that property to provide for your massive medical expenses and lost wages.
