With the increased popularity of motorcycle riding, the rates of death and hospitalization have increased, too. Motorcycle accidents kill approximately 3,500 and injure more than 165,000 on average in the United States. Motorcycle riders are at an increased risk of injury or death because of the limited protection motorcycles offer riders. However, more often than not in collisions between motorcycles and other vehicles, it is the fault of the automobile driver, not the motorcyclist.

Eighty percent of the time motorcycle accidents are caused by the negligence of car or truck operators. Either they do not see motorcycles due to their smaller size on the road, or they cannot stop as quickly as a motorcycle, causing a rear-end collision. Motorcyclists can take safety courses, wear protective equipment, like a helmet, and drive defensively, but unfortunately they only have so much control over what happens on the road. If you are the victim of a motorcycle accident, you need to contact a personal injury lawyer as soon as you possibly can. A personal injury lawyer specializing in Nevada motorcycle accident cases will provide you with the necessary tools to win your claim and recover from your injuries.

The sooner you get representation, the better the outcome of your case. In most situations, your attorney can interview witnesses, investigate the scene, and find doctors who will wait for payment. Generally, lawyers know physicians who are adept at testifying in personal injury cases, from depositions to courtrooms. Even if you believe you can not initially afford legal representation, options are available for you; personal injury attorneys almost always take cases on contingency, meaning you don't pay unless you win. The circumstances of your case may also include defective motorcycle parts, unsafe roads, or preventable hazards. Your attorney will look at all those factors and fight the responsible parties to cover your losses. You deserve the best representation in Nevada, and with little effort, you can find it.

Contact any local biker association for names of attorneys that specialize in motorcycle accidents. You can get a free consultation to lay out the facts of your case and get some educated opinions. Do not settle for anything less than the best you can find. You want to be able to concentrate on healing, not legal matters. You cannot count on insurance companies to play fair, as they will protect the interests of their company. Retaining the services of a Nevada motorcycle injury lawyer will put a fighter in your corner who is looking out for your best interest, and they can get you every penny you deserve.

One thing your Nevada attorney will want to know is what type of insurance you are covered under. For motorcyclists, there are a few different types of coverage; one is uninsured motorist coverage, which covers any costs related to an accident with a motorcycle and a vehicle operator without insurance. Then there is underinsured motorist coverage, a type of insurance that pays for your injuries when they exceed what is covered under another driver's limited liability coverage.

Investigations into motorcycle accidents can be drawn out, sometimes taking years to finalize. Trying to recover from injuries while worrying about legal matters can only complicate things. Enlisting a qualified Nevada personal injury attorney experienced in motorcycle accidents can allow for a favorable outcome with little worry, meaning you can concentrate on getting better.
