Answers to common questions after Reno motorcycle accidents

Motorcycle accident victims often have serious injuries that are not easily explainable. These victims tend to suffer from head injuries and other serious injuries, like spinal cord injuries. Reno residents suffering from these injuries may not always understand their rights in this terrible situation. It is crucial for people to understand their rights if they finds themselves injured after a motorcycle accident.

Oftentimes, other vehicles in accidents with motorcyclists claim that they did not see the motorcyclist at the time of the accident. An example of this type of accident can happen when a vehicle takes a left turn at an intersection which causes the accident with the motorcyclist traveling straight in the other direction. This is negligent behavior on part of the left-hand turning vehicle since straight traveling vehicles almost always have the right of way. This is a situation where an injured party should consider seeking reparations for any injuries they sustained due to the accident.

Head injuries are a common complaint after a motorcyclist is involved in an accident with a passenger vehicle. A motorcyclist can sustain a head injury even if the person is wearing a helmet. Helmets are always recommended to help prevent head injuries to motorcyclists and sometimes they are required by law. This is governed by state law if such laws are enforced.

Helmet, or no helmet, motorcyclists who are the victim in a motorcycle accident with another vehicle should pursue their rights. Whether the other vehicle was completely or partially at fault for the accident the victim should protect their rights. Motorcyclists may be tougher to see but they are still entitled to the same rights as everyone else. Everyone should watch out for motorcyclists on Reno roads this summer.
