Motorcycle Accidents in Albuquerque
The open landscape of New Mexico makes it an ideal place to cruise on a motorcycle, and many state residents enjoy the pastime. However, national statistics show that you are more likely to suffer life-threatening injuries in a motorcycle accident. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, nearly 80% of motorcycle crashes result in death or injury and riders are almost 27 times more likely to be killed in an accident.
Every day, a motorcyclist is injured or killed in New Mexico, and motorcycle fatalities have been on the rise across the country, despite an overall drop in other types of car accidents. Not only are riders more likely to be seriously injured, but most drivers also fail to look out for motorcyclists like they should, resulting in catastrophic motorcycle accidents across the state of New Mexico. In fact, despite what some people may think, most New Mexico motorcycle accidents are caused by the actions of reckless drivers who are not fulfilling their duty to share the road safely with motorcyclists.
