Las Vegas Truck and Motorcycle Accident Attorney

Truck Accident Lawyers

A motorcycle is no match for the sheer size and weight of a commercial vehicle or truck. Regardless of who is at fault, when a motorcycle and a truck collide, it is not uncommon for the motorcyclist to suffer catastrophic or fatal injuries. Furthermore, commercial carriers like trucking companies often have lawyers working to ensure that if their drivers are involved in an accident then the company does not pay more than absolutely necessary. Calling an experienced attorney at Ladah Law Firm is the first step to navigating through these murky waters: 702-252-0055.

Motorcycle Crash Statistics

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) maintains records on motorcycle crashes. In general, the number of fatal motorcycle crashes rose 7.1 percent between 2011 and 2012. Part of this increase was likely due to the increase in the number of motorcycles on the road (up 500,000 between 2009 and 2012). NHTSA also indicates that motorcyclists are 26 times more likely to die in a crash per mile traveled and five times more likely to be injured per mile traveled than occupants of passenger vehicles. In Nevada alone, 30 fatal motorcycle crashes occurred in Clark County in 2010. Large trucks were involved in almost 1,500 crashes in 2010 as well.

What To Do After a Truck and Motorcycle Accident

A motorcyclist involved in a truck accident should first and foremost obtain medical attention for any injuries he or she sustains. These injuries can include severe road rash, broken bones, internal injuries, neurological damage, and amputation of limbs. Once you have sought medical attention, you should consider or consider asking someone to:

 

  • Record the details about your accident, including how it occurred, who you believe was at fault and why, and any details you collected regarding the driver of the truck;
  • Take down contact information regarding any witnesses who observed the accident;
  • Photograph the crash scene, your injuries, and injuries to anyone else involved in the crash; and
  • Hire a Las Vegas truck and motorcycle accident attorney. Important information and evidence about the crash – including the driver’s logbook and the truck’s “black box” that records information about the speed and braking of the truck prior to the accident – can be irretrievably lost if the proper steps are not taken to preserve them. In addition, your attorney can obtain the police report regarding the crash. Finally, an attorney can help relieve some of the stress and anxiety that accompany any sort of motorcycle crash by speaking with other attorneys and insurance companies on your behalf.
