How Motorcycle Accidents Differ from Car Accidents

Typically, given the nature of motorcycle accidents, injuries are more severe.

Another difference is that if you lay down a motorcycle, you have to be transferred by REMSA (Regional Emergency Medical Services Authority), the local ambulance company here in Reno, Nevada. REMSA then takes you to the only trauma center in Northern Nevada, which is Northern Nevada Medical Center.

As a consequence, the damages or the medical bills are generally higher than they would be given that you have to get that trauma charge and the REMSA bill with any motorcycle accident where you needed to lay down the bike, that is, when the bike ends up on its side.
