Motorcycles, while convenient, efficient and fun, especially during the beautiful Washoe County summer, can also be extremely dangerous. To mitigate these dangers, motorcycle riders are mandated by the Silver State to wear helmets. However, other riders have taken these safety precautions to even higher levels; you can routinely see people on motorcycles wearing significant armor, armor that’s integrated into their jackets, pants and even footwear. However, motorcycle safety wear can only protect riders so much, if you are hit at a significant speed by an automobile while you are on a motorcycle (or a pedal bike) the injuries can be severe and, often, deadly. If you or a family member has been injured in a Washoe County car accident, NV-Attorney.com can represent you in your Reno personal injury case.
