Motorcycle Accidents in Nevada
Though motorcycle accidents are not the most common accidents on Nevada roads, they sometimes lead to some of the most severe injuries. Motorcyclists are at risk for serious injuries due to the fact that they have no protection from harm when involved in an accident with another vehicle. In just one recent year’s time throughout the state, approximately 24 people were killed in these accidents and many others were injured. Nevada has seen a rise in motorcycle accidents over the past few years. Drivers are expected to watch out for these parties at all costs on our roads. If you have been hurt in a motorcycle accident, you should be prepared to speak with an attorney that you can trust about your claim.
