Accidents on bikes and motorcycles happen each and every day on the streets of Las Vegas. The Nevada traffic crash data can be eye-opening to see how many people become victims. What you might not realize is that auto insurance claims apply to bicycle and motorcycle accidents just as they do car and truck accidents.

If you are injured on your bicycle or motorcycle from a passenger or commercial vehicle in Las Vegas, you may be able to file a claim and seek compensation.

Even if you have motorcycle insurance, it may not be sufficient. Working with a bike accident attorney can identify your rights and help you to get the financial compensation that you deserve.

At Gina Corena & Associates, we’re here to work with you every step of the way.

By working with us, you allow us to complete a full investigation of what happened, who was at fault, and the level of injuries that you have sustained. We will identify the total amount of money that the accident has cost our client, which includes lost wages, medical bills, and even the repair or replacement of a bicycle or motorcycle.

What to Do Following the Accident

Each and every accident is unique based on where you were, what you were riding, and how the other vehicle approached you.

Once you have been involved in a bike accident, you need to protect yourself by filing an injury claim. In the event that you’re too severely injured, a friend or family member can help you with the logistics.

You’ll want to assess your injuries and file an accident report with the police. If the party that hit you fled the scene, provide as many details as possible so that the police can follow up. Otherwise, if the responsible party is there, the police will gather insurance information and contact details on your behalf, along with anyone else who was injured.

The police should provide you with the information of the driver who hit you, including their insurance company and policy number and all of their contact details. If the police don’t come out to the scene, you should collect this information on your own.

If there were any witnesses at the scene, try to procure their information as well.

You will want to document the accident with as many photos as possible. This includes photos of where you were, the damage to your bike, the damage to the other vehicle, injuries, skid marks, and any environmental factors that could have caused the accident.

After ensuring you have documented every aspect of the incident, it’s also crucial to understand the common occurrences involving pedestrians or cyclists on the roads of Nevada. Incidents like hitting a pedestrian in Nevada or understanding the typical causes behind Vegas bicycle accidents can offer insights and guidance on what to be aware of and how to navigate the aftermath of such situations.

Once all of the information has been collected, you can focus on getting the help that you need from first responders. There may be questions from the first responders. Don’t suggest that you are at fault. Don’t downplay your injuries. Most importantly, if the EMTs recommend that you go to the hospital, go.

Build a Strong Insurance Claim

While you might think that working directly with the insurance company is the best way to build your claim, this isn’t necessarily the case. The insurance company represents the at-fault party. The adjusters will often limit the amount that the insurance company pays out, meaning that you could settle for far less than what your claim is actually worth.

At Gina Corena & Associates, our goal is to look out for you. This is why we want to ensure that you have an experienced Las Vegas bike accident attorney at your side.

We’ll show you how you should build a strong personal injury case in 5 easy steps.

  1. Follow doctor’s orders. Be sure to keep all appointments for treatment and follow-ups. Additionally, be sure to take the medication that was prescribed. Failing to do so can be used as evidence to show that you weren’t as badly injured as you’re claiming to be.
  2. Save receipts. You should save every receipt having to do with the accident, including repair estimates, medical bills, pharmacy receipts, and more. Additionally, save texts and emails pertaining to work lost. All of this will show how much the accident has cost you financially.
  3. Use caution with the insurance company. Insurance companies are looking out for themselves, not for you. If you are going to provide a recorded statement to the insurance company, seek the advice of an attorney, first. Quick settlements may appear to be a good deal but it can often mean that they are paying you considerably less than what you deserve. Once you accept the settlement, you cannot go back for more, which is why you should avoid settling until after you’ve talked with an attorney.
  4. Contact an experienced accident attorney. It is important to work with an attorney who has experience working with bicycle and motorcycle accidents. You need to focus on you. The attorney can focus on building a claim, including handling the paperwork that needs to be filed for an insurance claim.
  5. Stay quiet. We advise you not to talk about the accident, the claims process, or anything else. Don’t post photos of the accident on social media. In general, it is best to avoid an online presence at all during the claims process to ensure that there’s no argument to show that you weren’t as badly injured as you actually were.
