The Dangers Of Motorcycle Collisions

The beautiful natural scenery surrounding Reno and South Lake Tahoe continues to draw motorcyclists to various events in the area, such as the popular Street Vibrations rally. But as motorcycle ridership increases, so do motorcycle accidents. The attorneys at the Law Firm of Laub & Laub have more than 50 years of experience representing accident victims in California and Nevada. If you were in a motorcycle accident, we can help you pursue compensation.

Rider Bias

Many people assume that in a car-motorcycle collision, the rider is always at fault. They imagine the rider speeding, weaving in and out of traffic or pulling out in front of a car. The stereotype of motorcyclists as reckless drivers who fail to obey traffic laws does not help. But actually, careless and reckless drivers cause more than a fair share of motorcycle crashes. You need a lawyer on your side who can investigate who is really at fault for the accident.

Unprotected From Threats

Accident victims in motorcycle crashes tend to fare much worse than the driver of the other vehicle. Motorcyclists do not have the luxury of safety features to protect their body. In a motorcycle-car collision, riders can be thrown from their bike or crushed by a car. If struck, neither restraints nor air bags will safeguard your body from damage.

Biker injuries often have lifelong ramifications. By knowing the full extent of your injuries and limitations, you can fight for what you deserve. We work with medical experts and life care planners to determine your future needs.
