A motorcyclist was injured in a Las Vegas car accident after colliding with a vehicle. According to a Fox 5 news report, the motorcycle accident occurred near Ivanhoe Way and West Oakey Boulevard in Las Vegas. Officials have not released information regarding how this collision occurred or which motorist was responsible for the crash. The motorcyclist suffered critical injuries and is recovering in a nearby hospital. It is not clear if either motorist will be cited for the accident.

Motorcycles are commonly involved in intersection accidents because they are smaller than passenger cars and are often overlooked. Distracted, speeding, or careless drivers often fail to yield the right-of-way to motorcyclists while making a turn, entering traffic, or while changing lanes. Drivers who fail to properly yield the right-of-way to motorcyclists may be held liable for the damages they cause.

Injured motorcyclists would be well advised to discuss their legal rights and options with a skilled Las Vegas personal injury attorney. Financial compensation may be available for the damages they have suffered through civil litigation. Losses that may be included in a personal injury claim include medical bills, cost of physical therapy, time away from work, pain and suffering, and other related damages.
