This type of accident can lead to lasting disability that can make it difficult to return to work or even care for yourself. The cost of paying for hospitalization and doctors’ visits, medications, and special equipment can quickly add up. For some people, these costs continue for a lifetime. Filing a personal injury claim against the responsible parties can ensure that you are able to pay for your medical treatment and living expenses while you recover.
As a cyclist in Henderson, you are required to obey certain traffic laws, just like drivers and bikers, with one important exception – you do not have the same insurance coverage. However, this does not mean you don’t have the same legal rights you would have if you were hit by a negligent driver while in a car. If you are injured in a bike wreck, you have the right to recover damages from a negligent driver, bicycle manufacturer, or other responsible party even if you were partly to blame for the accident.
In 2016, 840 cyclists died while traveling on U.S. roadways and thousands more were seriously injured. In Henderson, the risk for suffering a bicycle accident increases near schools, tourist attractions, and at busy intersections. Bicycle accidents often occur despite a cyclist’s attempt to be as visible as possible. Because bicycles are so much smaller than motor vehicles — or even motorcycles — they are often hard to see. A driver who is impaired, fails to see a cyclist, or is driving distracted may turn in front of someone on a bicycle, not yield the right away, or make other mistakes that cause an accident.
David Boehrer recommends that anyone who is hit while riding on a bike call an accident lawyer as soon as possible. These accidents may be more complicated than they first appear. Police officers aren’t always familiar with the common causes of bicycle accidents. Mistakes or omissions during a crash investigation can make these cases difficult. In many cases, Nevada laws give cyclists the right to do what they were doing but an incorrect interpretation of the law may lead to confusion. For example, if an accident report states you, as the cyclist, were doing the wrong thing, you may accept responsibility for the crash and refrain from filing a claim against the negligent driver.
