Las Vegas Motorcycle Accident Lawyer

Las Vegas Motorcycle Accident Attorney

Motorcycles are popular in the Las Vegas area, and while most motorcyclists are able to enjoy their time riding without any problems, serious accidents can and do occur regularly for many reasons. It’s essential for every motorcycle owner to acknowledge the risks they face on the road, but even the most cautious and experienced riders can suffer catastrophic injuries due to the unexpected actions of others on the road. In addition, when these accidents occur, victims and their families are often left with many pressing legal questions and mounting economic strain from their losses.

Proving Liability for Your Recent Motorcycle Accident

When another driver is liable for your recent motorcycle accident, you must firmly prove they directly caused your damages before you can obtain any sort of recovery. State law requires all drivers to carry liability insurance, and the state’s minimum coverage requirements are much higher than in many other states. However, there is no guarantee that the driver who hit you will have enough coverage to fully repay your losses or that they will even have insurance at all. If they do have insurance, the claim filing process could be far more challenging than you initially expected, so it’s best to have an attorney you can trust assist you with the insurance claim process to reach a suitable result as efficiently as possible.

Proving liability is even more crucial for a personal injury claim. Even if you manage to maximize your insurance claim settlement, your damages may eclipse the scope of coverage the at-fault driver has in their auto insurance policy. If this applies to your situation you will need to file a personal injury claim, and success with your claim requires proving the defendant is directly responsible for all the damages you suffered.

When a motorcycle accident happens because of negligence, the plaintiff must use physical evidence and witness testimony to prove the defendant owed a duty of care, breached that duty of care, and directly caused their claimed damages. A few of the most commonly reported forms of negligence that cause motorcycle accidents in Las Vegas include:

    • Distracted driving. Inattentive driving is the most commonly cited cause of all motor vehicle accidents throughout the United States. Any driver who is not paying full attention to the road can easily cause a serious accident, and motorcyclists are especially vulnerable to distracted drivers since their vehicles are smaller and easier for an inattentive motorist to overlook.
    • Speeding. Any time a driver exceeds the speed limit, they inherently increase their risk of having an accident. Speeding also tends to lead to more severe crashes, and speeding is cited as the most common contributing factor to fatal accidents throughout the country. If a driver is excessively speeding and causes an accident, they could be charged with reckless driving.
    • Moving violations. A driver who makes a negligent error in navigating an intersection could easily cause a motorcycle accident. Running red lights or stop signs unintentionally or mistakenly making illegal turns can also result in serious accidents.

While accidents from negligence are common, it is also possible for intentional misconduct behind the wheel to result in a catastrophic motorcycle accident. The most common example is driving under the influence (DUI) of alcohol or drugs. Any motorist who operates a vehicle while intoxicated is likely to be charged with DUI, and their penalties for conviction automatically increase if they cause bodily injury or death to another motorist. If any intentional misconduct caused your motorcycle accident, an experienced Las Vegas motorcycle accident attorney can help you understand how this may influence your recovery efforts and the final compensation you obtain.

Filing Your Auto Insurance Claim for a Motorcycle Accident in Las Vegas

Dealing with insurance companies can be incredibly stressful, and it is important for any injured motorist to remember that an auto insurance company has no incentive to help a claimant secure maximum compensation for their losses. Insurance companies make their profits by collecting premiums and lose profitability when they are compelled to pay out on claims. Unfortunately, this encourages some insurance company representatives to engage in bad faith tactics, hoping that claimants’ desperation compels them into accepting lowball settlement offers and sometimes outright denying claims hoping that claimants do not fight back.

When you have an experienced Las Vegas motorcycle accident attorney helping you with your claim, the at-fault driver’s insurance company is far less likely to engage in any underhanded tactics in their handling of your claim, and you are more likely to receive a fair settlement offer in a short time. The attorneys at Easton & Easton have years of experience facing many of the largest insurance companies in Nevada and California, and we know the tactics they often use to avoid liability for accident claims. Our team will help you draft your demand letter to the at-fault driver’s insurance carrier and address any unexpected issues that arise with their handling of your claim.

Damages Claimable in a Personal Injury Action

A successful auto insurance claim should yield some initial compensation for vehicle repair costs and medical expenses after an accident. However, motorcycle accidents have a very high chance of causing serious and life-changing injuries, such as spinal cord injuries or traumatic brain damage. If your damages exceed the level of insurance coverage the at-fault driver has, you have the right to file a personal injury claim against them. This civil suit can help you recover damages their insurance doesn’t cover.

Under Nevada’s personal injury statutes, the plaintiff has the right to seek accountability for:

  • Medical expenses, both those incurred immediately from an accident and those they face in the future for the management of their symptoms and helping them reach maximum medical improvement. Your Las Vegas motorcycle accident attorney will work with your medical care team to help you calculate the full scope of medical expenses you face from your accident.
  • Lost income, including lost future earning potential. Unfortunately, many motorcycle accidents result in severe injuries that entail extensive recovery time. In addition, some victims are unable to work due to the severity of their medical complications. If this applies to your situation, your Las Vegas motorcycle accident attorney can help you claim compensation for your lost wages and future earning capacity resulting from the defendant’s actions.
  • Property damage. Your auto insurance claim may yield some compensation for your vehicle repair costs, but if your property losses exceed the at-fault driver’s insurance coverage, you can include the remainder in your personal injury suit.
  • Pain and suffering. The plaintiff in a personal injury suit has the right to seek financial compensation for the physical pain and emotional distress they experienced because of a defendant’s actions. Plaintiffs who have suffered catastrophic injuries resulting in permanent disabilities tend to recover substantial pain and suffering compensation. The state does not place any cap on pain and suffering damages in most personal injury claims, so it’s possible for this aspect of your compensation to be more substantial than your total claimed economic damages.

When you choose the attorneys at Easton & Easton to represent you in your motorcycle accident case, our goal is to secure as much compensation as possible in the shortest time possible. We’ll seek to resolve your auto insurance claim as swiftly as we can, and if you have grounds for a personal injury suit, we will help you settle the case efficiently through the effective leveraging of evidence and witness testimony. However, if litigation is unavoidable, our team is fully prepared to represent you in court. We have guided many past clients through very challenging motorcycle accident claims and are fully prepared to put this professional experience to work for you in your recovery efforts.

Motorcycle Accident Lawyer FAQs

Q: How Much Can a Las Vegas Motorcycle Accident Attorney Charge?

A: The attorneys at Easton & Easton accept personal injury clients in Las Vegas on a contingency fee basis. When you hire our firm to represent you in a personal injury claim, we do not charge any upfront or ongoing legal fees, and you only pay a fee once we win your case. The fee you pay is a percentage of your final case award, ensuring your legal expenses do not overtake your total compensation. We always explain our billing policy clearly before any contracts are signed, and there is no financial risk to you by hiring our firm for your motorcycle accident case.

Q: What Happens When a Motorcycle Accident Causes a Fatal Injury?

A: If you lost a loved one in a fatal motorcycle crash, you may have the right to file a wrongful death claim instead of the personal injury claim they could have filed if they had survived. If you believe you have grounds for a wrongful death suit against the driver who caused the accident, you should consult experienced legal counsel as soon as possible so they can begin working on your claim immediately.

Q: How Much Is My Motorcycle Accident Claim Worth?

A: The total value of any personal injury claim in Las Vegas depends on the scope of the damages the victim sustained in the event in question. Your Las Vegas motorcycle accident attorney can potentially help you secure compensation for vehicle repair costs and your medical expenses through an auto insurance claim, but any outstanding losses will need to be recovered through a personal injury action. You also have the right to recover pain and suffering compensation through a civil suit. An experienced attorney can provide an accurate estimate of your case’s total potential value.

Q: How Soon Should I Contact a Las Vegas Motorcycle Accident Attorney?

A: If another driver is responsible for causing your recent motorcycle accident it’s vital to secure legal counsel you can trust as soon as possible. You have a very limited time in which to file an auto insurance claim, and while the statute of limitations on personal injury cases is much longer you should still start the process as soon as possible. Seek medical care immediately and do not discuss any type of insurance claim settlement with the at-fault driver’s insurance company until you have reliable legal counsel advising you.

Q: Will the Defendant Go to Jail for Causing My Motorcycle Accident?

A: If your motorcycle accident resulted from another driver’s intentional and/or illegal misconduct behind the wheel, it’s likely for the state to open a criminal case against them. Reckless driving and DUI are the most common ways a driver can face prosecution for causing an accident. Additionally, certain traffic offenses automatically incur much more severe penalties when they result in serious bodily injury or death.

The attorneys at Easton & Easton can provide the client-focused and compassionate legal counsel you need after experiencing a motorcycle accident due to another driver’s negligence or intentional misbehavior behind the wheel. Our team will help you identify the party responsible for your damages, file your auto insurance claim for some initial compensation, and help you build a personal injury suit to ensure the fullest recovery possible. Contact us today and schedule your consultation with our team to learn how an experienced Las Vegas motorcycle accident attorney can empower your recovery efforts.

Retaining Easton and Easton was one of the best decisions I’ve ever made! From the initial consultation to our final meeting, they were nothing short of exceptional. I was forced to retain their services after firing my previous attorney for not handling the case properly. I dealt with Gabriel and Brian (partner) exclusively throughout the case. They did as promised and were great communicators throughout the entire process. I will recommend them to anyone I know going through a personal injury case. They were ultimately able to untangle the mess caused by my previous lawyer and get a result that I was extremely happy with. Their staff is exceptional as well and provided top notch customer service. Amera was also extremely helpful and easy to deal with as well.
