Motorcycle accidents can leave victims facing a multitude of challenges, from physical injuries to financial strain and legal complexities. If you’ve been injured in a motorcycle accident, understanding your rights and options is crucial to securing the maximum compensation you deserve.

As you navigate the road to recovery and justice, here are common FAQs for Motorcycle Accident Victims:

“What should I do immediately after a motorcycle accident?”

Your immediate priority should be safety. Seek medical attention for any injuries and contact law enforcement to report the accident. Gather evidence from the scene, including photographs, witness statements, and the other driver’s information, to support your claim.

“Do I need to hire a lawyer for my motorcycle accident case?”

While you’re not required to hire a lawyer, it’s highly recommended, especially in complex cases involving serious injuries. A skilled personal injury lawyer can provide invaluable guidance, negotiate with insurance companies on your behalf, and ensure your rights are protected throughout the claims process.

“How can I prove the other driver was at fault for the accident?”

Proving fault in a motorcycle accident case requires evidence such as witness statements, accident reconstruction reports, and traffic camera footage. Your lawyer will conduct a thorough investigation to gather evidence and build a strong case demonstrating the other driver’s negligence.

“What compensation am I entitled to for my motorcycle accident injuries?”

You may be entitled to compensation for medical expenses, lost wages, pain and suffering, property damage, and other losses resulting from the accident. Your lawyer will assess the full extent of your damages and pursue maximum compensation on your behalf.

“What if I was partially at fault for the motorcycle accident?”

Even if you were partially at fault for the accident, you may still be entitled to compensation under Nevada’s comparative negligence laws. Your compensation may be reduced based on your degree of fault, but you can still seek recovery for your injuries and losses. 
“What’s the value of my case?”

It depends. It varies on a case-by-case basis under Nevada law. Numerous factors contribute to its valuation such as your involvement in the accident, present and future work capabilities, extent of pain and suffering, earning capacity, lost wages, injury severity, medical expenses, and incident specifics all play roles in determining its value.
