How Does A Motorcycle Accident Occur?
Motorcyclists have the right to full use of the road. Even if you’re a careful motorcyclist, those around you may not be as careful while operating a vehicle. In fact, they may be downright reckless when it comes to the safety of motorcyclists and other travelers around them. If a driver acts negligently or recklessly in a way that results in your injuries, it’s possible to bring a claim for compensation under Nevada law. Our accident attorneys can help you review your case in order to determine your rights.
Motorcycle Laws In Summerlin
A motorcyclist has the right to use any of the lanes on all roads in Summerlin. You must have a special “M” class license to operate a motorcycle in the State of Nevada. It’s illegal to weave in and out of traffic and around stationary objects, but you can ride side-by-side with another motorcyclist with their consent.
What Duties Do Other Drivers Have Towards Motorcyclists?
Vehicle drivers on Summerlin roads have a duty to proceed with due care and caution. They must behave carefully and reasonably given all of the circumstances present at the time they’re operating a vehicle on the road. Motorcyclists also have a legal duty to be mindful and attentive for the good of those around them.
When a driver isn’t careful enough, they’re being a negligent driver. If the negligent operation of a vehicle results in an accident, the responsible driver may owe injured victims compensation for their losses. Nevada law allows a motorcycle accident victim in Summerlin to bring a claim for any amount of damages. You may work with the driver’s insurance company to seek a fair recovery, or you may need to bring your claim in a court of law to receive fair compensation.

An initial emergency room or doctor’s visit is essential to document your symptoms immediately after the crash. You may need additional visits to establish a long-term prognosis and a pattern of care.
