How accident investigations can help in motorcycle accident cases

It generally goes without saying that riding a motorcycle is a dangerous activity. Indeed, the exhilaration that comes with quick acceleration and the freedom of being on two wheels can be addicting. But unlike the rush people get from driving a sports car, there is no protective cage surrounding a motorcycle rider.

So when a motorcyclist is involved in a crash with a car, the results could be deadly.

Such was the case of a man who reportedly crashed into a car in the West Las Vegas Valley. According to several media reports, the accident occurred at the intersection of West Flamingo Road and South El Capitan Way. Authorities report that the motorcycle rider was travelling westbound on Flamingo Road when he struck another vehicle. He was pronounced dead at the scene of the crash.

 It was not reported whether the rider was wearing a helmet or whether the driver of the car was at fault. But the story exemplifies the need to conduct thorough investigations.

Comprehensive inquiries are critical in motorcycle accident cases because of the widely held, yet commonly incorrect notion that riders are usually at fault. If a case goes to trial, some jurors may simply assume that the rider was not following the law. This is because of mainstream images of riders being rebels and daredevils who care more about dangerous tricks and their “bad boy” image.

As such, a thorough investigation can help in unearthing facts that could help a motorcycle crash victim, including whether the driver of a car was negligent, as well as moving past the notion that the rider was at fault.  

The preceding is not intended to be legal advice.
