Motorcycle accident causes serious injury

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.

Back-to-back Reno motorcycle accidents injure one, kill another

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.

Spring is coming, so drivers need to watch out for motorcyclists

The official first day of spring will not arrive for another couple of weeks. Just the same, the weather starts to warm up in the Reno area in March and April, and that means that more motorcyclists in the area will be pulling their bikes out of their garages for a ride.

Why is it so important to give motorcyclist extra space?

It is important for any motorist to give plenty of space to the vehicles behind which they are traveling. In this respect, many drivers observe what often gets referred to as the two-second rule. In other words, when a car is following another car, it is best for the driver of the car behind to arrive at a designated landmark on the road, like a sign, at least two seconds after the preceding car passes it.

How many lives do helmets really save in motorcycle accidents?

There is no denying that wearing a proper helmet is a smart idea when riding a motorcycle. The statistics confirm that, to no small extent, they can save a rider's life should that rider be involved in a motorcycle accident.

After a fatal motorcycle accident, legal help is available

A previous post on this blog talked about how although motorcycle accidents declined in Nevada between 2016 and 2017, the state still has a problem when it comes to motorcyclists making up a disproportionate number of the total victims of fatal motorcycle accidents. It is unfortunate that motorcyclists in Reno and the other communities of this state seem to have a rough go of it. It is equally unfortunate that, while many of these fatal accidents can be attributed to a negligent driver of another vehicle, motorcyclists still struggle against the common perception that they are unsafe drivers and are usually to blame for an accident.

Number of deadly motorcycle crashes down in Nevada

According to a recent report, during 2017 motorcyclists in Reno and the rest of Nevada were in slightly less danger of dying in a crash than they were the year before. According to preliminary numbers, 54 people died in connection with motorcycle accidents in this state, which is a decrease of 20 from the 74 people who died in 2016. This was an almost 24 percent decrease in the number of fatalities and exceeded the national decrease of about 5.5 percent.

Motorcycle accidents and soft tissue injuries

Previous posts here have often discussed how motorcycle accidents in the Reno, Nevada, area can leave a rider suffering for the rest of his or her life with catastrophic brain or spinal cord injuries, making it clear that the rider has been seriously and permanently hurt. As such, if another motorist was at fault for the motorcyclist's injuries, it is fairly evident that the other motorist owes compensation to the rider.
