Our Attorney Handles Motorcycle Accidents in Reno
Motorcycle accidents are far too common, and if you have been hurt while on a motorbike, then you should get in touch with Paul A. Kapitz Attorney at Law in Reno to see what kind of compensation you can pursue. Our motorcycle accident attorney will examine your case to find liability. Sometimes these accidents occur when a bike is splitting lanes, and it is important to remember that lane splitting is illegal in Nevada. However, many times these accidents occur while the motorcycle is in its own lane because a car fails to see the motorist. We also handle injuries that occur while driving a moped or scooter.
We Also Assist With Moped & Scooter Cases
Mopeds, like motorcycles, are smaller vehicles that are prone to accidents because they simply are not seen by vehicle drivers. However, a recent study showed that over 17 percent of moped drivers in an accident were not wearing a helmet. Additionally, mopeds are not legal to drive on the freeway. It is important to protect yourself to stop an accident from happening in the first place, but if something does happen, we have an attorney waiting to help.
Unfortunately, many motorcycle accidents result in wrongful death. In these cases, the family can seek compensation, but you can also seek legal action if you have experienced any of the following:
- Head and brain trauma
- Neck, spinal cord and back injuries
- Broken bones
