Nevada Motorcycle Drivers Face Dangerous Roads
Motorcycle riders and drivers on Las Vegas roads are urged to proceed with caution and always wear the best, most up-to-date safety gear. Obviously, full-head helmets are a necessity. For example, from 1993 to 2002, it is estimated that motorcycle helmets saved over 7,500 lives. Leather jackets and pants have also saved countless motorcyclists’ lives and reduced injury. Many protect their hands, feet, fingers and toes with boots and gloves designed specifically for motorcycles. Finally, some motorcyclists even wear jackets and pants with armor plating reinforcement on the elbows, knees, shoulders, back and hips. Regardless of what protection the motorcycle driver is wearing, if you or a relative have been injured or killed in a motorcycle accident, contact Benson and Bingham for a free legal consultation today.
Southern Nevada summers are notoriously hot in the desert; however, many riders forego some of these precautions in Las Vegas’ intense heat. While the State of Nevada does require helmets for motorcycle riders, that protection can be less than is ultimately needed in a high-speed crash.
It is unknown what protection 18-year old Frederick Carapel was wearing on Sunday evening when his motorcycle struck the back of a 2009 Ford Focus stopped at a red light on Sahara Avenue and Grand Canyon Drive. In critical condition, Carapel was rushed to University Medical Center after he was thrown from his motorcycle.
