Deadly Motorcycle Accidents
Motorcycle riders face a unique set of risks that other motorists do not. Even a seemingly unimportant aspect of the road, such as uneven pavement, can be potentially devastating for a motorcyclist. For this reason, motorcyclists are at serious risk of suffering life-threatening injuries in the event of a crash.
Across the country, motorcycle fatalities are on the rise. Motorcycle fatalities increased by 5.1 percent just from 2015 to 2016. In some cases, surviving family members are able to obtain lost compensation with the help of a New Mexico wrongful death attorney.
