Those involved in bicycle accidents face severe injuries because of the lack of protection they have while riding. Even when wearing a bicycle helmet, bike accident victims can sustain severe injuries including multiple fractures, traumatic brain injuries, internal organ injuries, and amputations, if any limbs get pinned under a vehicle. In addition to the physical pain of injury and recovery, a severe bicycle accident injury can cause economic catastrophe and emotional stress for victims and their families.

Recovering Damages After a Nevada Bicycle Accident

Nevada law permits you to seek compensation for damages from the party who caused your bicycle accident, as long as you file a lawsuit within the statute of limitations. You should verify with your attorney which time period applies to your case, but in most bicycle accident cases, plaintiffs have two years from the date of injury to take legal action. If your lawyer successfully negotiates a settlement or a Nevada court rules in your favor, you might recover some or all of the following damages:

  • Medical expenses, including ambulance and emergency services, hospital stays, follow-up care, radiology, surgery, and medication.
  • Future medical costs when a bicycle accident causes a severe injury requiring a long recovery, or causes a permanent disability requiring indefinite lifelong care.
  • Rehabilitation expenses, including visits to specialists, such as physical therapists and occupational therapists, as well as assistive devices, such as wheelchairs, canes, crutches, and prosthetic limbs.
  • Lost wages when a severe bicycle accident injury causes you to miss work, or when you have to miss work to tend to your child who was injured in a bicycle accident.
  • Lost future wages when a severe accident prevents an accident victim from returning to their job, or when a child will not be able to seek gainful employment when they are older.
  • Physical pain and suffering
  • Mental anguish
  • Scarring and disfigurement
  • Loss of consortium with a spouse
  • Punitive damages in rare cases including willful harm or gross negligence

If you have lost a child or another loved one at the hands of a careless or negligent driver, Nevada law entitles you to sue the driver for damages in a wrongful death suit. Depending on your relationship to the deceased, a court may award you some of the previously listed damages in addition to burial expenses and funeral costs. Your attorney will advise you on the specifics that apply to your situation.
