Frequently Asked Questions about Nevada Motorcycle Accidents
Our Reno Personal Injury Attorney Answers Your Questions
In the aftermath of a motorcycle accident, it is easy for victims to feel overwhelmed and unsure of what to do next. Reno personal injury attorney Eric A. Stovall is experienced in working with motorcycle accident victims. These dangerous accidents can result in serious injuries, including traumatic brain injuries and spinal cord injuries. Medical costs can be high, and knowing what your rights are is important. You will find some of the most common questions we encounter answered here.
What Should I Do After a Motorcycle Accident?
Your first priority should be to seek medical attention. Sometimes injuries are subtle, but can cause further problems if left undetected. If possible, you should also collect as much information from the scene of the accident as you can. If specific road conditions were a factor in your accident, record these along with any other observations about time and place. Contact information for witnesses and other involved parties are also important. Documentation such as police reports and medical records are also important.
Can I Recover Damages?
In many cases, the answer is yes – you are entitled to recover damages after a motorcycle accident. However, every case is different. To give you a realistic idea of what kind of compensation you might be able to recover, our Reno personal injury lawyers will need to review the details of your accident. The types of damages you may be able to recover include medical care, lost wages and suffering.
How Much Will It Cost?
We offer free consultations, so meeting with our experienced attorneys will cost you nothing. We will review your case, answer your questions and provide advice as to what steps you should take next. Again, every case is different and the total cost is impossible to estimate without considering the specifics of your case. For most injury victims, however, we offer contingency fees, which means we take a percentage of a verdict or settlement out of your monetary award. If you win nothing, then we take nothing.
Can I File a Claim Even If I Do Not Have Motorcycle Insurance?
Whether you hold motorcycle insurance or not does not affect your rights to file a claim against a negligent party. If your accident was caused by someone else’s carelessness, you have the right to hold them accountable for their actions.
