Motorcycle and Bicycle Accident Attorney in Las Vegas

Representation for Victims in Henderson, Clark County, Nye County, & Mesquite

Motorcyclists and bicyclists have several things in common. They are both riding two-wheeled vehicles that are smaller, less visible, and less stable than passenger cars. They both lack the protection of an enclosed vehicle and are vulnerable to serious injuries in a collision.

A truly phenomenal and compassionate attorney. I will be forever grateful.

Causes of Bicycle and Motorcycle Accidents

Many bicycle and motorcycle accidents are caused by other drivers who fail to see the bike in the road or fail to yield the right-of-way. Common causes of motorcycle and bicycle crashes include:

  • Negligent left turns: This is a leading cause of motorcycle accidents. Drivers executing left turns at intersections turn into the path of oncoming bikes.
  • Distracted driving: This negligent driving behavior plays a role in many motorcycle and bicycle accidents. Drivers distracted by their phones are more likely to cause a collision.
  • Unsafe lane changes: Motorcycles and bicycles are smaller and less visible than cars, trucks, vans, and SUVs. Drivers who fail to signal and perform a head check before switching lanes can hit bikes in their blind spots. 
  • Tailgating: This is dangerous driving behavior under any circumstances. When a driver following too closely behind a motorcycle or a bicycle causes a rear-end collision, it can have deadly consequences. 

Fatal Bicycle and Motorcycle Accidents

Bicycle deaths have increased by 44% in the past decade, according to the National Safety Council (NSC). In 2020, 1,260 people died in bicycle accidents in the U.S. A total of 5,579 motorcyclists were killed in 2020, accounting for 14% of all traffic fatalities, as reported by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA).
