Don’t Trust the Insurance Company To Do What’s Right

Insurance companies see an opportunity to deny motorcycle accident claims. They will try to put you at fault even when drivers don’t look out for you. But drivers of passenger vehicles have a responsibility to be careful on the road. Just because your motorcycle is smaller doesn’t excuse negligent driving.

Motorcyclists get a bad reputation for risky riding. Insurance companies like to use that to get an unfair advantage. They think they can win on bias. That’s not right. You deserve a motorcycle accident lawyer who can counter all the tricks insurance adjusters will try to use against you. That’s why you need Sam & Ash, LLP.

How Much Is My Motorcycle Accident Case Worth?

  • Your medical bills and the care you need
  • The wages you lose and the damage to your future earnings
  • Loss of consortium when the relationship with your spouse is damaged
  • Pain and suffering you experience because of the accident

How Long Do I Have To File a Motorcycle Accident Lawsuit in Nevada?

If you’ve been hurt in a motorcycle wreck in Nevada, you typically have two years from the accident’s date to file a personal injury claim. However, most injury claims settle long before a lawsuit is filed. That’s why it’s important to hire a lawyer right away to get the process moving.

If the at-fault party’s insurance company refuses to offer you a fair settlement, your lawyer may recommend that you file a lawsuit and seek damages in court. You’ll want to make sure to give your legal team enough time to investigate the crash, build a strong claim, and negotiate a settlement before the statute of limitations on filing a lawsuit runs out.

If you fail to file your motorcycle accident lawsuit before the statute of limitations expires, the court will refuse to hear your case. When that happens, you lose your chance to recover compensation from the at-fault party.

What To Do After a Motorcycle Crash to Protect Your Rights

Take these important steps to protect yourself after a serious injury accident:

  • Seek medical treatment right away and follow your doctor’s orders. Get the diagnostic tests you need and attend all follow-up appointments.
  • Save all evidence. Save copies of the official police crash report, any photos you have from the scene, medical bills, and other records that will be important to your motorcycle accident claim.
  • Write down everything you remember about the accident and keep a journal about the physical pain and emotional distress you’re experiencing as a result.
  • Stay off social media. Your social media posts could be used against you by the other party.
  • Let your lawyer handle all communication with the other party’s insurance company. Anything you say to an insurance adjuster could be used to hurt your case.

Motorcycle Accident FAQs

After a motorcycle accident, you may have a lot of questions about your rights and legal options. We’ve answered a few of the most common questions we receive from motorcycle accident victims below. We are also here to answer all of your questions at a free consultation.

It’s a bit of a mix. Data collected from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration indicates that passenger vehicles are more at fault in T-bone accidents and accidents involving failure to yield. Motorcyclists are at fault slightly more often in head-on and rear-end collisions. However, drivers of passenger vehicles have more blind spots and often fail to anticipate smaller motorcycles. This partially explains driver negligence in many motorcycle accidents.

There’s a good chance you do. Not all motorcycle accident claims are against drivers of passenger vehicles. Public entities such as cities and states have an obligation to ensure road safety. Motorcycle accidents can result from oil slicks, potholes, uneven paving, and inadequate lighting. A good motorcycle accident lawyer in Las Vegas will investigate the condition that caused your accident and pursue your claim with the responsible party.

Probably. Riding without a helmet may not be relevant to the issue of who caused the accident. So long as the other party was liable for the accident, you may still be entitled to compensation.

Even if you were partly at fault for an accident, you could still recover compensation. In Nevada, if you were less than 51 percent at fault for an accident, you may still be entitled to compensation. Keep in mind, however, that your compensation will be diminished in proportion to your percentage of fault. For example, if your damages are $20,000, but you were found to be 25 percent at fault for the accident, you would only be eligible to receive $15,000.
