Motorcycle Accident Causes
There were 4,462 Fatal Motorcycle Accidents in the United States in 2009, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. Under Nevada Civil Code section 1714, drivers are responsible for their own acts and injuries to another caused by his acts. In order to recover damages from another driver who may have caused a motorcycle crash, the injured motorcycle rider must prove the other driver was negligent or did not exercise the same reasonable care any prudent person would exercise under the same or similar circumstances.
There are specific elements that must be proved on a case-by-case basis in court. First, an injured person must prove that the defendant has a legal duty to exercise care toward them. Next, they must prove that the defendant breached that duty and it was the cause of the accident that injured the person. Finally, the injured person must prove they were in fact injured by providing evidence of medical costs and reports from doctors proving the injuries and the extent of those injuries. The total damages to an injured person will include costs to treat them, lost wages or loss of one’s future earnings and pain and suffering in some cases. Motorcycle accident lawyers must conduct an investigation immediately after an accident to:
- Preserve evidence of the crash
- Secure photographs of the scene
- Establish the defendants’ liability for the accident
- Inspect the motorcycle and safety gear for potential defects
- Determine if there is a need to hire expert witnesses
- Recover your medical expenses and lost wages
Most motorcycle crashes result in serious physical injury. If you have suffered injury, or a family member has been killed, call for a confidential consultation with an experienced and caring Las Vegas motorcycle accident attorney. We will give you sound advice and explain all of your options.
