As a motorcyclist in Las Vegas, you have the same rights as any other motorist on the road. Unfortunately, some motorists ignore these rights, cutting you off, failing to yield to you and not keeping an eye out for your smaller vehicle. If you have been injured in a collision because of another driver’s negligence, our Las Vegas motorcycle accident attorneys are here to listen to the circumstances of your case and help you get the compensation you are entitled to by law.
Clark County motorcycle injuries can be serious
According to the United States Department of Transportation, motorcycle injuries have risen dramatically over the past decade. In an accident, you have a higher chance of sustaining life-threatening injuries while riding a motorcycle than you are if you are driving another type of vehicle. This is due, in part, to the fact that there is no protective barrier between you and the road. Motorcycles also lack the safety equipment that other motor vehicles have.
Our Las Vegas and Summerlin motorcycle accident attorneys have first-hand knowledge of the impact a negligent driver can have on your life. While some injuries may heal with time, others can lead to permanent disabilities and lifelong pain. Common types of motorcycle injuries include the following:
- Traumatic brain injuries, which can lead to significant cognitive dysfunction
- Spinal cord injuries, including paralysis
- Broken bones
- Loss of limbs
- Skull fractures
Severe mental trauma, anxiety or post-traumatic stress disorder may make it hard for you to enjoy your life as you did before the accident.
The Recovery Process
As an injured victim of a motorcycle accident, you may have to undergo extensive surgical procedures, physical therapy, rehabilitation and other costly medical treatments in order to regain your ability to function. You may even be unable to return to work, making it difficult for you to support your family and make ends meet. After analyzing the details of your personal injury case, our motorcycle accident attorneys in Las Vegas can determine how much compensation you should ask for. Not only is monetary compensation designed to help cover your medical expenses, but it may help to replace wages you’ve lost while you are recovering from your injuries.
In addition to representing victims of motorcycle accidents, our attorneys at George T. Bochanis Law Offices provide legal counsel in cases that involve wrongful death, pedestrian accidents, uninsured/underinsured drivers, bicycle injury, as well as accidents caused by boats, taxi cabs and large trucks.
