What should I do if I’m injured in a motorcycle accident in Las Vegas?
Depending on the severity of your motorcycle accident injury, here are some suggestions from Paul Padda Law, a Las Vegas law firm serving motorcycle accident injury victims and their families.
- Assess your injury – Before you move, make sure you do not feel any extreme pain anywhere on your body. Don’t do anything that could make your injury worse. If you’re hurt, stay still and don’t move.
- Protect yourself – If you think you can safely move, move out of danger. If not, ask someone to block traffic so you don’t get hit. Las Vegas’ streets can be very chaotic. Protect yourself.
- Call the police – You or someone else should contact the Las Vegas Police Department immediately. An officer will create an accident report. That way, your accident is well documented so there are no disputes later.
- See a doctor – Even if you feel fine, make sure you get examined by a doctor or another medical professional. Let the experts decide the severity of your injury.
- Gather evidence – If you can safely do so, take photographs of your accident and your injuries. Write down information about your accident scene: time of day, weather conditions, road conditions, etc. The more information, the better. If you cannot do so for health reasons, ask someone there to do this for you. The same goes for writing down the full names and phone numbers of any witnesses.
What if I’m a passenger on a motorcycle involved in an accident?
You are almost never at fault as a passenger, but you might be asking how will you get your medical bills paid? If another driver caused your accident, that driver’s insurance company normally pays the medical bills associated with a motorcycle passenger’s injuries. If the motorcyclist caused the accident, that person’s insurance company normally pays the passenger’s bills. But every accident is unique. And many insurance companies often do everything they can to pay injury victims as little as possible, or they delay taking action. An attorney may be able to help you get the results you need.
Are motorcycle passenger injuries common?
Yes. Approximately 10 percent of people injured or killed in motorcycle accidents are motorcycle passengers, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. That translates into more than 400 deaths and 8,000 motorcycle passenger injuries on average each year nationwide.
What is the most common motorcycle accident injury?
Injuries to a motorcyclist’s leg or foot are the most common non-fatal motorcycle accident injuries, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Leg and foot injuries account for 30 percent of all non-fatal motorcycle accident injuries.
What are some other motorcycle accident injuries?
Motorcycle accident injuries can cover a wide range. Some of the most common motorcycle accident injuries in Las Vegas we normally deal with at Paul Padda Law include:
- Head injuries
- Neck injuries
- Spine injuries
- Spinal cord injuries
- Traumatic brain injuries
What should I do if I can’t work due to my motorcycle accident injury?
Many motorcycle injuries can be extremely severe. As a result, many injury victims are unable to return to work for weeks or months or even longer. If you cannot work and cannot pay your bills because you were injured in a motorcycle accident caused by another driver, you need to take aggressive legal action. You didn’t do anything wrong. Why should you suffer financially? Contact Paul Padda Law today. We can help.
What if an insurance company refuses to pay for my motorcycle accident injury?
Insurance companies often play games after a motorcycle accident. Instead of simply helping injury victims, many insurance companies do everything they can to avoid paying them or keep payments to an absolute minimum. That’s not right. If you are represented by an experienced attorney, you will have someone on your side who can help you pursue the compensation you need.
Should I hire a lawyer if I’m injured in a motorcycle accident?
Yes. When you have an aggressive Las Vegas attorney on your side, you can take a strong stance against uncooperative insurance companies and anyone else who stands in your way. Remember: the other driver caused the accident. You’re the victim. That means you shouldn’t have to pay for someone else’s mistakes.
