Motorcycle Accidents in Albuquerque
Traveling by motorcycle leaves riders much more exposed to suffering from life-threatening injuries in the event of a collision involving another vehicle. According to data from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, nearly 80% of reported motorcycle crashes result in death or injury, and riders are nearly 27 times more likely to suffer from fatal injuries in the event of a crash. Thousands of motorcyclists are killed annually in crashes across the country.
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.
