Motorcycle Accidents in Nevada
Nevada motorcycle accidents do not happen as commonly as other accidents on our roads but, when they do occur, they tend to be some of the most life-altering in nature. According to the Nevada Department of Public Safety, motorcycle accidents led to the deaths of 24 people in August 2019 and many other lives were lost within the year. Motorcycle accidents happen unexpectedly and lead to many fatalities and injuries. If you have lost a loved one in a motorcycle accident, it is important that you speak with a legal advocate moving forward.
Motorcycle accidents are happening more and more every year. These accidents happen due to many reasons but tend to occur most commonly when drivers are not paying close attention to the roads or other drivers around them. These accidents occur due to driver distractions, drunk driving, speeding, fatigued driving, and more.
