Ladah Law Firm, PLLC, is an experienced Nevada motorcycle accident attorney firm, that works with motorcycle accident victims and their families to ensure they receive financial compensation for their loss. Every year, hundreds of motorcycle riders are injured or killed in Nevada in accidents caused by the carelessness of another driver.

Nevada Motorcycle Accident Statistics

According to statistics published by the Nevada State Health Division, motorcycle riders are more than eight times more likely to be injured in a crash than the driver of a car, and more than 34 times more likely to be killed. Another comparison conducted by the Southern Nevada Traffic Safety Coalition found that while traffic accidents and related deaths declined in Nevada between early 2013 and early 2014, the same was not true for incidents involving motorcycles. In fact, there were more than 37 percent more motorcycle accident fatalities in early 2014 than during the same months of 2013, according to the study.

Many of these accidents are caused by negligence or reckless behavior on the part of other drivers. This can include everything from texting and driving to driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol. Drivers are engaging in dangerous behavior while behind the wheel, and it’s costing the lives of motorcycle riders.

Motorcycle Accidents Are Deadly

Nevada Motorcycle accidents cause broken limbs, traumatic brain injuries, and serious internal injuries. In the blink of an eye, your family could be saddled with mounting medical bills, missed work, and other financial stresses. And that’s before we address the emotional anguish.

When all of the above was caused by a texting driver or by an inebriated kid in his dad’s pickup, it is more than an accident; it is a senseless, illegal act that should be punished. In these cases, we will not only pursue typical damages we may seek for punitive damages as well.
