Pahrump Motorcycle Accident Lawyer

Pahrump Motorcycle Accident Attorney

Motorcycle accidents can happen for the same reasons that all other vehicle crashes happen, but they tend to have very high rates of causing catastrophic or fatal injuries compared to other accidents. If you are struggling with the effects of a recent motorcycle accident, an experienced Pahrump motorcycle accident lawyer can help determine your most viable recovery options.

How to Prove Liability for Your Motorcycle Accident in Pahrump

The first challenge you will face in your recovery efforts following a motorcycle accident in Pahrump, NV is proving fault for the accident. The state follows the fault rule for resolving vehicle accident claims, meaning you must prove how your accident happened and identify the party responsible for causing it before you can recover any compensation for your damages.

Most of the motorcycle accidents reported in the state happen because of negligence, or failure to use reasonable care in specific situations. Common examples of negligence cited in motorcycle accident claims include distracted driving, speeding, and traffic violations. If you need to prove negligence in your case, you must prove the at-fault driver violated their duty of care in handling their vehicle in a way that directly caused your claimed damages.

It is also possible for a motorcycle accident to happen from intentional and illegal misconduct, the most common example of which is driving under the influence (DUI) of alcohol or drugs. When a driver has injured someone else by breaking the law, they not only face criminal prosecution from the state alongside their civil liability for the victim’s damages but also harsher penalties in sentencing based on the level of harm they have caused.

Your Pahrump motorcycle accident attorney can help gather the proof you need to firmly establish liability for your accident. Once the fault is proven, you can proceed with claiming compensation for the damages resulting from the accident. This process will likely begin with an auto insurance claim against the at-fault driver, followed by a personal injury suit if their insurance cannot fully cover your damages.

Filing Your Auto Insurance Claim in Pahrump

Every driver is required by state law to have auto insurance that meets basic coverage requirements. Auto insurance must include bodily injury liability coverage and property damage liability coverage, and drivers are encouraged to purchase uninsured motorist coverage. This allows them to claim against their own policies when uninsured drivers cause accidents.

Once you have proven fault for your motorcycle accident, an experienced attorney can help file your claim against the at-fault driver’s auto insurance policy. They will resolve any problems you encounter with the insurance company’s handling of your claim, and once you receive your settlement, they will verify that it is fair and reasonable under the terms of the defendant’s policy. After recovering as much as you can through insurance, the next step is filing a civil claim.

Claiming Compensation With a Personal Injury Suit

When an at-fault driver does not have insurance or their insurance policy cannot fully cover all the damages they caused, you will need to file a personal injury claim against them to recover the rest of your damages. Your attorney can help with this, assisting you in uncovering every channel of compensation available in your personal injury claim.

  • The defendant is liable for any property damage they caused, such as the cost of repairing or replacing your vehicle. If their insurance cannot fully cover these damages, the remainder can be cited as economic damages in a personal injury suit.
  • You can seek compensation for all medical care you need after your accident. The defendant is liable for immediate and future medical treatment costs, which may be extensive after a motorcycle accident. These accidents have a high chance of causing catastrophic injuries that require extensive rehabilitative care.
  • If you are unable to work following your accident, the defendant is also liable for the income you are unable to earn during your recovery. If your accident has left you permanently disabled, the defendant is also liable for your diminished future earning capacity, and a good attorney can help accurately calculate these projected losses.
  • Nevada law allows a personal injury plaintiff to claim pain and suffering compensation to reflect the physical pain, emotional suffering, and psychological trauma a defendant inflicted. There is no limit on pain and suffering compensation in motorcycle accident cases filed, so this could form the bulk of your final case award if you sustained catastrophic injuries with permanent effects.

Other factors can also influence a personal injury case award. For example, punitive damages could come into play if the defendant caused your motorcycle accident through any illegal actions. On the other hand, your recovery could diminish if you share fault for causing the accident under the state’s modified comparative fault rule.

FAQs About Pahrump Motorcycle Accidents

Q: What Evidence Do I Need to Prove Fault for a Motorcycle Accident in Pahrump?

A: Success with your recovery efforts after a motorcycle accident will likely require a combination of various forms of evidence. You may need physical evidence from the scene of the crash as well as testimony from witnesses who saw it happen. You may also need traffic camera recordings (if available), drivers’ cell phone records, vehicle computer data, and expert witness testimony to clarify the most complex and technical details of the accident.

Q: How Much Compensation Do You Get for a Motorcycle Accident?

A: If you are able to prove another driver is directly responsible for causing your recent motorcycle accident, they are liable for all resulting damages. You can seek compensation for your medical expenses, property damage, and lost income, including lost future income, if you are unable to work after the accident. You may also claim pain and suffering compensation, and there is no limit to how much you can claim for a motorcycle accident under state law.

Q: How Long Do I Have to File a Personal Injury Suit?

A: If you cannot fully recover your damages from a motorcycle accident with an auto insurance claim, you will need to file a personal injury claim against whoever caused your accident. The statute of limitations for this claim is two years, starting on the date the accident occurred. If you do not file your claim within this time limit, you lose your chance to claim compensation from whoever caused your accident.

Q: Why Should I Hire a Pahrump Motorcycle Accident Lawyer?

A: While it is technically possible to pursue recovery from a vehicle accident without legal representation, there are several important benefits to having an attorney you can trust on your side. Your Pahrump motorcycle accident lawyer can handle evidence gathering and building the foundation of your claim, meeting all procedural requirements with the court so you can focus on recovery. You are more likely to win your case and maximize your compensation with their help.

Q: What Does It Cost to Hire a Pahrump Motorcycle Accident Lawyer?

A: The attorneys at Easton & Easton offer contingency fee billing for personal injury clients in Pahrump and surrounding communities. This means we do not take upfront or ongoing legal fees; instead, we only take a percentage of our client’s final case award as our fee, and only if and when we win their case. This billing arrangement removes the possibility of paying more for legal counsel than you win in compensation for your damages.

Ashlee A.

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.

I was in a pretty bad car accident and decided to have Easton & Easton represent me, Travis Easton to be specific. Travis Easton and his paralegal made the whole process effortless.

If you are ever in need of a personal defense attorney Easton & Easton is the firm to represent you!
