Albuquerque Motorcycle Accidents
According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, over 80% of motorcycle accidents result in death or injury, with motorcyclists having a 27 times greater risk of dying in an accident. Motorcycle riding is highly popular in New Mexico, and many individuals enjoy riding their motorbikes across the state. Unfortunately, these vehicles put drivers and passengers on the road at greater danger, which has resulted in a rise in deadly motorcycle accidents across the country.
Motorcycle riders and passengers are extremely susceptible in the event of an accident. For this and other reasons, motorcycle accidents are substantially overrepresented in national traffic fatalities. The rate of deadly motorcycle accidents is on the rise across the country, with more and more confirmed deaths taking place each year. Following a tragic motorcycle accident, injured parties should consult with a New Mexico motorcycle injury lawyer about their legal rights to compensation.
Every day, a motorcyclist is injured or killed in New Mexico, and motorcycle fatalities have increased across the nation, despite a decrease in other types of car accidents. Motorcycle riders are not only more likely to be seriously injured, but most motorists fail to keep a sufficient lookout for them, leading to deadly motorcycle accidents in New Mexico.
Despite what many may think, irresponsible drivers who refuse to follow their legal obligation to share the road safely with motorcyclists are the major cause of motorcycle accidents in New Mexico, and irresponsible drivers should be held liable for their involvement in a catastrophic collision.
