Reno motorcyclist killed in two-vehicle accident

Because motorcyclists are so much more exposed than people in cars or trucks, they are much more likely to die or suffer catastrophic injuries in an accident. Statistics suggest that motorcycles are more likely to be involved in accidents, as well, simply because the two wheel design makes them less stable. However, there is another factor that makes motorcycles more vulnerable: car and truck drivers are less likely to see them.

A Reno man was killed on his motorcycle recently in a collision with a car. Police said the 29-year-old man was heading north on Stead Blvd. when a sedan tried to cross the road in front of him to head south. The motorcyclist could not stop in time and struck the side of the car. He later died from his injuries at a nearby hospital.

The scenario is all too common to motorcyclists and people who are familiar with motorcycle accidents. According to some studies, two-thirds of all accidents involving a motorcycle and another vehicle were caused by the driver violating the motorcyclist's right of way.

When a motorcyclist is injured due to another driver's negligence, compensation for medical expenses and other damages may be awarded from a personal injury lawsuit. In the case of a fatal accident, the victim's family may seek compensation through a wrongful death lawsuit.

A Nevada attorney with experience in personal injury law can help the injured and their families by going over the facts of the accident. An attorney can then assess their case and help them understand their legal options.
