Motorcycle Accident

Tough Las Vegas Motorcycle Injury Lawyers
Motorcycle injury victims generally suffer significantly worse injuries than automobile wreck victims. They do not have a car surrounding them as a safeguard, no seat belt, and are smaller and less visible to other motorists. They are often at greater risk of injury caused by 18-wheelers, buses, SUVs and other passenger vehicles as well. Due to their size, they may end up in the blind spot of another vehicle or get hit by an inattentive driver that makes a quick lane change. Both situations can end tragically for the unseen motorcyclist. Victims injured on their motorcycles are often blamed simply because they were driving a motorcycle. At Paternoster Law Group, we find this bias against motorcycle riders offensive. It is not a valid defense under the law, yet we often see insurance companies and lawyers appeal to this bias at trial. We have a history of fighting for motorcyclists to ensure they receive the fair treatment and compensation they are entitled to, just like the rest of the motoring public. In fact, one of our biggest cases involved a biker injured by a fast food delivery driver. In that case, our client was speeding approximately 10-20 mph over the speed limit on a city road. The defendant was traveling on the same road in the opposite direction. The defendant turned left at an uncontrolled intersection across the path of our client, causing his motorcycle to T-bone the defendant’s car at approximately 45-65 mph. Our client was nearly killed, spending 2-3 months in a critical care unit. The defendant’s insurance company denied the claim and instead hired a team of experts, including a Human Factors expert to argue that the driver could not see the oncoming motorcyclist because drivers are not trained to look for motorcyclists, only other automobiles. They also hired an accident reconstruction expert to argue our client was excessively speeding. At the time of the wreck, the defendant was delivering food for a national food chain that prides itself on a culture of speed including speedy delivery. During the first week of trial, the Defendants paid an undisclosed settlement amount to avoid a large verdict, agreeing to pay for our client’s future needs for the rest of his life and more. Not only did we get justice for our client, but the world is a bit safer for other motorcyclists now too, as the defendant fast food chain has noticeably changed its marketing strategy and de-emphasized the culture of speed and claims of extremely fast delivery it once prided itself on.
