Personal Injury in Las Vegas
Bicycles are used for a multitude of purposes, such as blazing through the mountains, on trails, along a beach or waterfront, as well as leisure riding through small towns or racing against others. Whether you use a bicycle for recreation or sport, when accidents happen, they should be taken care of immediately. Many injuries can come from bicycle accidents, and that’s when you need a local personal injury attorney in Las Vegas.
Injuries sustained from a bicycle accident should be treated with medical attention immediately. The common injuries from such accidents include road rash, head trauma, spinal cord injuries leading to paralysis, and fractured, dislocated, or broken bones. Even if you feel that your injuries are minor, you should still seek medical attention, since some injuries are internal and not noticed. If you are hurt from a bicycle accident, contact a personal injury attorney in Las Vegas to discuss your case.
Causes of such accidents vary depending on the weather or surroundings, but the common causes include, but are not limited to:
- Potholes or other road flaws
- Drivers that are under the influence of drugs or alcohol
- Cars or trucks that are turning
- Vehicles emerging from side streets or driveways
- Wet or icy pavement
No matter the cause of the accident, compensation for any injuries should be sought. Compensation, if awarded, can help pay for therapy, whether emotional, physical, or psychological, as well as rehabilitation, medical bills, and funeral expenses in the event of wrongful death.
