Henderson, NV (May 4, 2022) – Officers with the Henderson Police Department are investigating a motorcycle accident that ended in injuries and happened around noon on Tuesday, May 3.
According to the HPD and authorities with the Henderson Office of Public Information, the motorcyclist suffered serious injuries in the crash, which took place at the corner of Wigwam Parkway and Pecos Road. That victim was transported to a local hospital by ambulance in critical condition.
Speed and impairment are not considered causes of the collision at this time, though HPD officers say their investigation is still active. The intersection was closed for almost three hours, with significant traffic delays, as crews cleared the scene.
Our thoughts are with the injured motorcyclist and their family in hopes of their full recovery.
Motorcycle Accidents in Nevada
According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), roughly 13 out of every 100,000 passenger vehicles are involved in a fatal collision. Motorcyclists, however, have a far higher risk of serious injury and death. In fact, motorcycle accidents had a death rate of more than 70 per 100,000, per reports from authorities throughout the Silver State. Moreover, over the course of only one year alone, nearly 50 motorcycle fatalities occurred across the state of Nevada.
Unfortunately, catastrophic or even fatal motorcycle accidents are all too frequent in Nevada, particularly on the crowded streets of Reno, Las Vegas, Clark, Carson City, and elsewhere. Furthermore, victims and their families bear the brunt of the devastating consequences of these terrible incidents.
Victims often face financial hardships, long-term physical challenges arising from major injuries, and mental distress. Victims’ loved ones may be left in an extremely difficult situation, coping with funerary costs, lost wages, and more. It goes without saying that these motorcycle wrecks can negatively impact victims for the rest of their lives.
The cost, financially, physically, and emotionally, is sky-high, with medical bills stacking up and thousands of dollars needed to cover income or earning potential that is now lost. And negotiations with insurance companies, whether they’re representing an at-fault driver or a corporation, can be overwhelmingly stressful. Most insurers and adjusters will attempt everything possible to avoid paying out the monetary reward that you deserve after a crash.
