Do You Have to Wear a Motorcycle Helmet in Nevada?

In Nevada, motorcycle helmets are required for those riding, both drivers and passengers, a motorcycle. Also, if you're riding a moped or trike, you must wear a motorcycle helmet. Any vehicles with handlebars and saddle seats requires you to wear a helmet. Riders must also wear proper eye protection like face shields, goggles, or glasses if there isn't a transparent windscreen on the motorcycle.

If you choose to not wear a helmet, you can face a fine that varies depending on the locality. You will also get two demerit points on your license. If you get 12 or more demerit points your license will be suspended for six months by the DMV.

Negligence & Motorcycle Accidents

Despite the growing popularity in motorcycling over the past few decades, few motorists have acclimated themselves to driving alongside them.

They frequently forget to look for motorcycles, misjudge their own movement, or drive aggressively around them. When these things happen and a motorcyclist is hurt, those motorist actions need to be addressed in court.

Common examples of motorist negligence harming motorcyclists include:

  • Speeding
  • Impaired or drunk driving
  • Forgetting to look during lane change/merging
  • Forgetting to before exiting their vehicle
  • Failing to stop at red lights and stop signs

To make matters worse, the sentiment that motorcycles are dangerous and rebellious still persists—even in the courtroom. It is not uncommon in these injury suits for defendants to blame motorcyclists for the accident due to unfounded "recklessness" claims or other reasons. That is why it is so essential that these injury victims have dedicated and aggressive counsel by their side.

The Las Vegas personal injury attorneys at the Law Offices of Steven M. Burris anticipate this stigma before your suit is even filed and will be prepared to ensure the circumstances of your accident are soberly presented both in and outside of the courtroom.

Your injuries deserve to be answered for. Contact our motorcycle accident lawyers in Las Vegas now.
