Common Causes Of Motorcycle Accidents

Many motorcyclists understand they’re at a greater risk than other drivers on the road and take the appropriate safety precautions to avoid accidents. However, other parties’ actions and factors such as road and weather conditions remain out of a motorcyclist’s control. The following are some of the most common causes of motorcycle accidents:

  • Unsafe Lane Changes
  • Drunk Driving
  • Traffic Violations (Speeding, failure to yield, etc.)
  • Lane Splitting
  • Defective Motorcycle Parts
  • Dangerous Road Conditions

Who Is Liable In A Motorcycle Accident?

As with any other kind of automobile accident, victims of motorcycle accidents have the right to seek compensation for their injuries from the party that’s deemed at-fault for the wreck. There are many possible causes of motorcycle accidents and, therefore, a few potential parties that may be held liable in a motorcycle accident case. Most commonly, those parties are:

  • The driver whose negligence caused the accident. If another driver were responsible for the accident, victims would need to file a claim with that driver’s insurance company for compensation.
  • The company that manufactured the defective motorcycle part. When a defective motorcycle component causes a motorcycle owner’s injury, they have the right to seek compensation from the component’s negligent manufacturer.
  • The government entity that failed to remediate hazardous road conditions. In Nevada, the usual sovereign immunity that applies to government entities doesn’t apply in cases where their negligence results in personal injury.

Compensation For Motorcycle Accident Injuries

There are several compensatory damages plaintiffs may be awarded in a personal injury case, such as a motorcycle accident. Typically, in Nevada, plaintiffs can seek compensation for economic and non-economic damages. Common damages victims may choose to seek compensation for include:

  • Medical Expenses
  • Loss Of Present & Future Wages
  • Therapy Bills
