Bicycle Accidents in Nevada
Bicycle accidents are not as common as other accidents that happen on our roads. However, when they do occur, they tend to lead to some of the most extensive harm. In just 2020 alone, it was reported that only six people were killed in fatal bicycle accidents in Nevada. However, many also became injured as a result of these accidents. Bicyclists have no protection from harm when they are involved in an accident with any type of motor vehicle. This is why these accidents tend to lead to serious injuries and why many victims even lose their lives. If you have been seriously injured in a bicycle crash, you should be prepared to speak with an attorney that you can trust.
Cyclists are vulnerable on our roads, which means that they are likely to become seriously injured in an accident. If you have sustained injuries in one of these accidents, you should speak with a Carson City bicycle accident lawyer who has your best interests in mind. Some of the most severe injuries that stem from a bicycle accident include some of the following:

- Traumatic brain injuries
- Internal organ damage
