You Can Receive Compensation Even If You Are Partially to Blame
Mr. Kendall vigorously pushes back against all unfair blame his clients receive for their motorcycle accidents. That being said, there are some cases where a motorcycle rider is at least somewhat at fault. Even if you did partially cause your motorcycle accident, you can receive compensation as long as we prove the defendant is more responsible for the crash than you.
This is possible because Nevada law operates under a principle of modified comparative negligence. This means that the damages available to you can rise or fall depending on how responsible you are found to be for causing the crash. As long as you are not more than 50 percent responsible for the accident, you may be able to collect restitution.
Time Is of the Essence
The standard form of compensation in injury cases is known as compensatory damages. Examples include medical bills, lost wages, and property damage. In rare cases, punitive damages can also be awarded to set an example and punish a defendant for especially egregious behavior.
An example of a lawsuit where a personal injury attorney could seek punitive damages is a case where a drunk driver hit a motorcyclist. This situation applies because consuming enough alcohol to become drunk while knowing they are going to drive is very reckless.
Punitive damages can be very significant. In a case such as the one described above, the plaintiff could receive a punitive damages award of up to $300,000 if their compensatory damages were under $100,000. If the amount of compensatory damages awarded is $100,000 or more, punitive damages can reach up to three times that amount.

Stands Up To Motorcycle Accident Stigmas
Many motorcycle accident victims face unfair stigmas following a crash. They are often portrayed as inherently reckless and deserving of their injuries, even when a motorcycle rider followed all traffic laws. Insurance companies frequently use this stigma to repeatedly and wrongfully try to downplay their own liability.
Mr. Kendall believes that all crash victims deserve legal representation. He is glad to represent motorcycle accident victims because they are so often treated unfairly. If you have suffered a motorcycle accident, you need a legal advocate who is truly on your side. Call or write to our team to speak with a personal injury attorney who will stand by you.
