Nevada motorcyclist dies after truck pulls out in front of him

Motor vehicle deaths do not discriminate. Young or old, whatever walk of life one comes from, no one is immune to the potential road fatality. This also includes the wide variety of motor vehicles, big or small, motorists Nevada and elsewhere could suffer fatal injuries while traveling in a motorcycle, automobile or a large truck.

Details emerge on alleged motorcycle accident injuring CHP

A story made national news when reports of a Reno man intentionally running over a CHP went viral. According to reports, he stopped to make a routine traffic stop on the I-80 when a Reno man used an F-150 to intentionally hit the CHP and then fled the scene of the accident. Drugs are thought to have been a factor in the accused's decision-making process and the truck used to allegedly strike the motorcycle accident victim was stolen. The fact that the man was on a motorcycle left the injured largely unprotected from the impact and force of the F-150.

Comparative negligence and motorcycle accident injuries?

Motorcyclists and their passengers love the feeling and the freedom of the open road. Because weather in Reno and the surrounding area is suited for motorcycles most of the year, it is a great place to get out and ride. But what happens when a motorcyclist is involved in a car accident causing catastrophic injury? What if the injured isn't sure who is at fault for causing the crash?

Catastrophic injury from motorcycle accident is compensable

Motorcycles offer the freedom of the open road and a feeling that is unmatched by any other mode of transportation. While this is great, motorcyclists are also susceptible to collisions with passenger vehicles and other motor vehicles. This puts the driver and any passenger on the motorcycle in danger of catastrophic injuries. If a Reno motorcycle accident has left you or a loved one with such a bodily injury, compensation may be available.

Motorcycle accident victims need to think long-term about injury

Most motorcyclists in Reno are well aware of the certain risks associated with operating a motorcycle. While many motorcyclists are safe and responsible drivers, some drivers in other motor vehicles are not. When an irresponsible driver accidentally comes into contact with a motorcyclist, the results can be catastrophic.

What are some of the dangers facing Reno motorcyclists?

The freedom and fun that motorcycles bring their operators and passengers is unsurpassed by any other mode of transportation. This is one of the main reasons that motorcyclists choose to travel this way. With all that freedom and fun does come some risk. Motorcyclists are about 26 times more likely to die in a crash than someone riding in a passenger car, and are five times as likely to be injured.

Compensation may be available after a motorcycle accident

Motorcycle accidents can be the catastrophic result of a negligent driver. If an upstanding Reno motorcyclist is operating their bike safely with awareness and happens to be caught at the wrong place at the wrong time, that is seriously unlucky. However, a bad situation can turn even worse if the motorcyclist is struck with catastrophic injuries due to such an incident. There are ways that motorcyclists can collect for injuries sustained due to the driving decisions of another.

What day and time of day are motorcycle deaths occurring?

Due to the terrible nature of motorcycle accident deaths, the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety has been recording motorcycle accident death statistics since as early as the 1970s. What these statistics do is to help determine patterns in statistics and behavior that can hopefully help promote better behavior and safety standards to keep motorcyclists alive.

Motorcycle accidents can be attributed to a negligent driver

After a motorcyclist is injured in an accident, he or she can be left with overwhelming medical expenses and may be unable to return to work to make a living. In the case of a fatal accident, the rider's family members may be left not only grieving, but wondering how they will cope with the loss of their loved one's income.

Nevada motorcyclist seriously injured in crash

Motorcyclists are usually well aware of the serious dangers they face when they hop on their bike to take a ride. Since motorcyclists are just one of the many forms of vehicles on Nevada roads, they stand at a disadvantage. This is based on the sheer size of the other vehicles that they travel alongside. One motorcyclist found this out the hard way when he was involved in an accident with a passenger vehicle last week near U.S. 95.
