Las Vegas Bicycle Accident Laws
Bicycle accident injuries are unfortunately all too common, especially in Las Vegas. The attorneys of the Law Offices of Adam S. Kutner know what you have been through. Our law firm has knowledge in all aspects of bicycle equipment, accident reconstruction, roadway design as it relates to bicyclists and these factors may be a crucial part of your case.
In most cases involving bicyclists and automobiles, the person driving the car is almost always at fault in the accident. There are other reasons for bicycle accidents to consider as well.
Those driving an automobile must always be careful of bicycle riders and motorcycles as well. A bicycle needs to be treated as another car on the road by the operator of the motor vehicle. An example of this would be if you are sharing the right lane with a bicyclist and you are planning a turn right at an intersection, you must yield to the bicyclist. You cannot drive in a designated bike lane unless you are pulling off of the road.
Laws change all the time and there are many traffic laws concerning bicycles and not knowing those laws does not provide protection to those who injure a bicyclist. As a bicyclist, you have rights. Call us today if you’ve been injured and find out how we can help you.
FAQs About Bicycle Accident Cases
To win your Las Vegas bicycle accident lawsuit, you must show that you’re hurt because of the negligence of a motor vehicle driver. You must prove that the driver didn’t drive carefully enough on the roads. While you may show that they violated a traffic law, you may also win your case by showing that the driver simply failed to use the care that an ordinary, reasonable person should use in a similar situation. To win your claim, you must also show what your injuries and other damages are both now and in the future.
Bicyclists have the right to use the road. The burden is on the vehicle driver to drive carefully and avoid causing injuries to bicyclists. Drivers must leave sufficient following distance. They may only overtake a bicyclist when it’s safe to do so. Proving your case may be as simple as showing how the driver’s behaviors caused the bicycle accident and your injuries.
In a Las Vegas bicycle accident lawsuit, you can recover the value of your financial losses plus compensation for your pain and suffering. Your financial losses include your medical bills both now and in the future. Even if your medical diagnosis is uncertain, your attorney can help you work with an expert doctor to determine your future expenses. The amount you can claim for physical pain and emotional anguish depends on the severity of your injuries. An experienced attorney can help you value your bicycle accident claim.
Sharing The Road
- Cars and bicycles must obey the same traffic laws. Regardless of what type of vehicle you are operating, you must obey stop signs, traffic lights, and yield to pedestrians.
- Bicycles are required to have an operational headlight to use at night time just like all other vehicles. In addition, bicycles must have reflectors on the back of their bicycle so that cars will be able to identify a bike at night.
- Bicycles should never ride against the flow of traffic. Riding with the flow of traffic helps reduce the amount of accidents that occur.
- Motor vehicles and bicycles are required to have operating brake systems that are good enough to bring the vehicle to a complete stop within 25 feet of using the brake system.
- All passenger vehicles and bicycles may not transport more passengers than the manufacturer’s recommendation.
- Bicycles must always use the bicycle lane when traveling on a road. If there is not a designated bicycle lane, the bicycle must remain on the far right of the road. The only exception to this rule is if there is something in the far right lane, such as construction, that could potentially harm the bicyclist.
- Drivers of a bicycle must use arm signals to turn and must implement this signal no less than 100 feet from the point in which they are going to turn just like a motor vehicle.
- Many local laws prohibit the use of earbuds or headphones while driving a bicycle.
Adam Kutner Reviews & Testimonials
“Somebody turned left, right into me from the opposite direction and totaled the car and I was actually unconscious for a short while and sure enough he got hauled off for a DUI and there I was with a totaled car going to the emergency room.
Adam Kutner dealt with the case himself, personally, and it was just a great experience from beginning to end and really he was – he and his staff intensely concerned about me you know, getting the medical help I needed and the therapy I needed and it just – it went like clockwork.
Adam Kutner took great care of me. He made sure that my medical issues were taken care of, definitely made sure that I got back into a car that got me back on the road, couldn’t be happier with the settlement and in my thinking, he is the best attorney in Las Vegas to take care of you in an accident”
