A rider injured in a recent motorcycle accident had a surprise hero in the person of retired boxing champion Mike Tyson. Tyson came to the rescue after the motorcyclist crashed on Interstate 15 in Henderson.
The rider crashed after a cab cut him off while traveling along the Henderson Interstate. He suffered broken bones and some torn ligaments, injuries that later required surgery.
One of the first on the scene, Tyson stayed beside the injured rider, comforting him, and kept onlookers from touching the victim until paramedics arrived.

Distracted driving, speeding, and drunk driving are some of the common causes behind motorcycle crashes in Nevada and anyone injured as a result may have a legal claim for damages under Nevada tort law.
Injuries Arising from Motorcycle Crashes
Due to the relative weight and size of motorcycles and the absence of external protection that car riders enjoy, motorcycle accident victims can suffer physical injuries that range from minor to serious. These include:
- Nerve damage around the limbs
- Traumatic brain injury
- Spinal cord injury, and
- Facial disfigurement
Injured victims often require medical attention, treatment, rehabilitation, and therapy for complete recovery. If the accident was caused by another party, compensation for both physical and psychological injuries, should be sought.
