Unlike the occupants of most vehicles, motorcyclists lack the protection needed to protect them in the event of a collision. Due to this, bikers can suffer devastating injuries when involved in an accident. People who suffer these injuries deserve fair compensation for their losses.
If you were hurt in a motorcycle wreck due to the negligence of another person, you should speak with our trustworthy attorneys at LVNV Legal. A Spring Valley motorcycle accident lawyer at our firm can investigate your case to determine what caused your crash and hold the responsible person accountable.
State law requires that all motorcyclists wear a helmet while on public roads. In addition, the fact that a rider was not wearing a helmet can have a serious impact on a demand for compensation after an accident. While evidence that a motorcyclist was without a helmet does not affect whether another traveler was at fault for a collision, it can change the amount of compensation that an injured motorcyclist may be able to collect.
This is because of the legal concept known as modified comparative negligence. In short, this law states that a person who suffers injuries in an accident will receive reduced compensation if a judge or jury believes that this person contributed to their losses, such as by failing to wear a helmet. According to Nevada Revised Statute § 41.141, courts that assign more than 50 percent of blame to the injured rider cannot award that injured rider any compensation. Our Spring Valley lawyers will work to build a claim that proves that the defendant was primarily responsible for your motorcycle crash.
While it is true that riding a motorcycle does expose people to additional risks, this does not mitigate the fact that all drivers owe a duty of care to everyone else that they may meet while driving behind the wheel. As a result, you, the biker, have the same right to seek out compensation after an injury as all other motorists.
Notably, the burden of proof falls on you, meaning you must provide evidence showing that another party is responsible for your motorcycle accident. Our local motorcycle crash attorneys at LVNV Legal could help with this by obtaining:
Another essential aspect of motorcycle accident cases is measuring your losses, including your medical bills, lost wages, and even emotional traumas. Our team could help you calculate your losses and catalogue them in an effective damages claim.
Regardless of the negative connotations that often come with motorcycles, bikers have the same legal rights as any other motorist. This includes the right to fair compensation for injuries caused by another person’s negligence. Whether your motorcycle crash was due to poor road conditions, a faulty part, or a negligent motorist, our team at LVNV Legal is here to help.

I consulted with Mr. Segal on a business matter, and found him to be very detail-oriented and analytical. His legal knowledge and thorough analysis enable him to strategically position clients for success. I also found that he conducts himself in a professional manner and truly cares about his clients' interests.
Shoham's keen analytical mind, strong business sense and straightforward approach to litigation makes him a strong force to be reckoned with if you ever have to face him in the courtroom, and an even stronger ally to have when working on a case with complex legal issues. I endorse this lawyer.
Mr. Segal has handled several real estate deals for our company. His service is always professional, efficient and prompt. His response time is very quick and helpful. looking forward for working with him in the future. Best experience!
Shoham was kind, patient and knowledgeable in explaining how to qualify my mother for Medicaid long term care. I did not even know my mother was eligible. There are so many aspects to paying for long term care that so many people — including myself — do not know about. One would be lucky to have this firm in your corner navigating you through it.
Knowledgeable, professional and patient. Mr. Segal was always available to us and was able to take care of all of my family’s legal needs. I am so grateful that he was there to guide us through everything. Highly recommended!
Shoham has been handling my foreclosure case and I am beyond satisfied with the results so far. Beyond being very knowledgeable and professional, Shoham is very accessible and his demeanor is of an attorney who thoroughly calculates and strategizes his every move. I highly recommend to anyone in need of a lawyer for any sort of litigation.
My parents don't know much about the best way (or any way) to plan their estate. My sister and I have been trying to get them to figure things out for a decade but they never do because it made them too nervous. I got recommended to Mr Segal by a friend and now the ball has started rolling! He made my parents feel comfortable...
