Despite law enforcement's best efforts to educate drivers on the dangers of getting behind the wheel under the influence of alcohol or drugs, it is still a frequent problem throughout Nevada. People who are simply minding their own business and obeying all traffic laws can find themselves with serious injuries and even be killed when there is a drunk driving accident. One of the worst calls a family can get is that a loved one was hurt or lost his or her life in a drunk driving crash. After it has happened, it is important to consider the future and discuss a possible lawsuit with an experienced attorney.
Many Nevadans enjoy riding a motorcycle around the state whether in the cities or on the open road. It is a popular pastime despite its inherent risks. Most car drivers and motorcycle riders share the road safely and keep an eye on each other. Still, some drivers don't pay attention to what they are doing and behave recklessly or negligently. Since they are comparatively unprotected, a rider can suffer serious injuries and death. After a motorcycle collision occurs, it is imperative that the rider and their family think about the issues they will inevitably face in the aftermath and consider a legal filing for compensation.
Nevada roads can be dangerous enough without the risk of distracted drivers. Unfortunately, as there are an increasing number of ways to be distracted, the problem has risen significantly. It is believed that younger people are more vulnerable to the temptation of using a smartphone when behind the wheel. However, a new survey has shown that parents are often distracted while behind the wheel.
Reno has many motorcyclists on its roadways. Drivers of passenger vehicles and trucks are obligated to keep an eye on them, yield when necessary and take steps to keep everyone safe and accident-free. However, theories and best-case scenarios aside, this does not always happen. When a rider is involved in a crash, they are vulnerable to injuries and fatalities. In some of these accidents, a second crash occurs in the immediate aftermath, causing more damage. With the litany of problems that come about after these accidents, legal assistance is advisable.
Reno drivers simply going about their business do not expect to be involved in an accident with a drunk driver. However, despite attempts by law enforcement to catch and penalize drunk drivers, it is a problem that has not gone away. Unwitting victims can be confronted with serious injuries and the costs that accompany them. To cover the medical expenses, lost wages, pain and suffering and more, it is often necessary to file a claim for compensation.
