Attorney Eric Blank

Bicycle Accident Lawyer in Las Vegas

Thousands of bike crashes happen in Las Vegas every year. Some of these result in fatalities, while others end with serious injuries.

Getting struck by a vehicle while on a bike is very dangerous. A cyclist has little to no protection against this type of impact. A helmet can help, but it does not eliminate the risk of serious injuries.

Common Bike Accident Injuries

The injuries sustained in bike accidents depend on the situation. Higher speeds tend to result in more severe damage. Some examples include:

  • Damage to internal organs
  • Head trauma and concussion
  • Fractured bones
  • Neck and spine injuries
  • Facial injuries like a broken nose
  • Cuts, bruises, and other skin damage

Severe injuries are common in bike accidents, and the cost to treat them is very high. Fortunately, you can claim compensation from the driver responsible for the accident.

To do that, you need an experienced Las Vegas bike accident lawyer to get you through the legal process. Contact the team at Eric Blank Injury Attorneys today to schedule a free strategy session.

How Bike Accidents Happen in Las Vegas

Nevada has laws in place that are meant to protect cyclists. For example, cars are required to give at least 3 feet of clearance to cyclists when passing them on the road.

The most common reasons for bike accidents are:

  • When bikes stay to the right shoulder, they can get hit by cars making a right turn.
  • Cyclists can get rear-ended like any other vehicle if the driver is not paying attention on the road.
  • Getting hit by an opening door is another common cause of bike accidents in Las Vegas.

The root cause of all these incidents is the fact that cyclists are harder to notice on the road.

What to Do After a Bicycle Accident in Las Vegas

No one wants to get into an accident, but it pays to know what to do in case it happens.

The first step is to call for medical assistance. Your health is the first priority. Even if you feel fine after the accident, you do not know if you have internal bleeding or a concussion. Get to a hospital or call 911 to treat your wounds and check for other injuries.

The second step is to gather the information that will be vital to your case. That means getting the details of the driver who hit you and any witnesses. You can use your phone to capture images and videos of the scene if you can.

Report the accident to the police, who will write an official report. Make sure you ask for a copy.

Most importantly, talk to a bicycle accident lawyer to determine the amount of compensation you can seek if you are not at fault. Call Eric Blank Injury Attorneys today to schedule a free strategy session.

Is There a Statute of Limitations for Bicycle Accidents in Las Vegas?

With bicycle accidents, you only have two years from the date of the incident to file a lawsuit for your claim.

If you miss the deadline, you can no longer receive compensation from the at-fault party.

There are instances where the deadline can be extended, but that only happens on rare occasions. If you get into a bicycle accident, do not waste your time. Contact an experienced bicycle accident lawyer to help build your case immediately.
