With its flashing lights, exciting nightlife, and variety of people, Las Vegas is a city unlike any other. Because of this, traffic can be heavy at times. Along with automobiles, more people can be found riding motorcycles around and outside the city. Unfortunately, there are also numerous motorcycle accidents that take place as well, resulting in severe injuries and deaths. If you’ve been involved in a motorcycle accident, it can be a very complex situation. Therefore, you should always turn to Las Vegas motorcycle accident lawyers from the Dobberstein Law Group to help you gain the compensation you deserve.
Young, Inexperienced Riders
In 75% of motorcycle accidents in Las Vegas, the rider was under age 30. In addition, over 60% of the accidents involved those riding sport bikes on the open roads outside the city. With most riders being young and relatively inexperienced, it becomes easier for them to be involved in serious accidents. However, this does not mean they are always at fault for their accident. Therefore, even if you were an inexperienced rider when you had your motorcycle accident, do not assume this means you cannot gain compensation for your injuries.
No Respect on the Road
Though motorcyclists are entitled to the same rights on the road as automobiles, this rarely happens. In fact, many motorists go out of their way to intimidate motorcyclists into making critical errors on the road, such as speeding up, making sudden stops, or having to make hairpin turns at high speeds. When this happens, a serious accident almost always results. If you were bullied by another driver while simply out for a ride on your motorcycle and thus sustained serious injuries, consult with Las Vegas motorcycle accident lawyers at once.
