Over the course of a recent year, motorcycle accidents increased by 32 percent in Nevada. There were 79 fatal motorcycle crashes, up from 60 deaths the previous year. Researchers report that human error is the leading cause of these motorcycle accidents – commonly errors of other drivers who hit motorcyclists.
If you suffered injuries in a motorcycle accident or lost a loved one in the Reno area, you should never wait to seek help from an injury attorney at Kidwell & Gallagher. We are ready to support you and seek compensation for your losses whenever possible.
Motorcycle crashes can have devastating consequences, often resulting in severe injuries or fatalities. In Nevada, like in many other states, motorcycle accidents involving other vehicles are a significant concern. The following are some top causes of motorcycle crashes caused by other drivers.
One of the leading causes of motorcycle crashes in Nevada is drivers failing to yield the right of way to motorcyclists. Motorcycles are smaller and less visible than cars or trucks, making them more susceptible to being overlooked by other motorists. When drivers do not properly yield at intersections or while changing lanes, they may collide with motorcyclists who have the right of way. Such accidents can result in serious injuries to the motorcyclist and damage to the motorcycle.
Distracted driving is also a major contributing factor to motorcycle crashes in Nevada. When drivers engage in activities such as texting, talking on the phone, adjusting the radio, or interacting with navigation systems while driving, their attention is diverted from the road. As a result, they may not notice motorcyclists sharing the road with them, leading to potentially dangerous collisions.
Another common cause of motorcycle crashes by drivers in Nevada is tailgating or following motorcyclists too closely. Motorcycles can stop more quickly than cars, and tailgating leaves little room for error in case the motorcyclist suddenly brakes or encounters an obstacle. When a driver rear-ends a motorcycle, it can result in catastrophic injuries for the rider.
Under Nevada law, wrongful death claims can be filed by the surviving family members of a person who has died as a result of a fatal motorcycle accident caused by another party’s negligence or wrongdoing. Wrongful death claims seek to compensate the family for their losses, including funeral expenses, medical bills, lost income, and emotional suffering.
To pursue a successful claim, the surviving family must establish that the other party’s actions were responsible for the motorcycle accident and subsequent death. Consulting with an experienced attorney can be crucial in navigating the complex legal process and seeking justice for the loss of a loved one.
