Las Vegas Personal Injury Attorney
Despite the comparatively small size of a motorcycle compared to most other vehicles on the road, a motorcyclist has the same rights as any other motorist. Cars, commercial trucks, and other larger vehicles must yield right of way to motorcycles and give them the space they require. When a negligent driver does not acknowledge the rights of a motorcyclist, they can cause a serious motorcycle accident, leaving the rider with serious or fatal injuries.

When Motorcycle Parts are to Blame
Defective motorcycle parts are a serious concern for riders all across the country. If one part fails while a motorcycle is in motion, it could lead to an instantaneous and devastating wipeout. In such situations, which usually involve only the motorcycle and no other vehicles, liability can be placed upon the part manufacturer that allowed such a dangerously defective piece to hit the market.
There are two distinct ways a motorcycle part can be defective:
- By design: Some parts are never going to be safe by virtue of a design flaw alone.
- Through manufacturing: In some situations, a part is safe on paper but becomes dangerous when it is manufactured due to a mistake somewhere along the assembly line.
Why Do You Need an Attorney?
Motorcycle accidents often result in devastating injuries that can negatively impact a rider for the rest of their lives. The consequence carries into cost, piling medical fees and requiring thousands or millions to replace lost wages or earning potential. Insurance companies representing the liable party, whether that be another motorist or a company, will do all they can to resist paying out such large yet necessary funds.
