Deadly Motorcycle Crashes in New Mexico
When riding a motorcycle on the roads of New Mexico, there are unique dangers that are not faced by passengers of everyday vehicles. Avoiding a catastrophic accident requires split-second decisions based on the rider's actions. Statistics show that motorcyclists are 27 times more likely to be killed in a collision. Not only that, but roughly 80% of motorcycle crashes cause death or serious injury.
When a loved one dies as a result of another party's negligence, wrongful death lawsuits are filed to compensate the surviving family members. Unfortunately, getting that compensation does not always come easy. Those who are to blame for a fatal accident should be held accountable. However, insurance companies frequently try to shift blame in the aftermath of a deadly crash. The at-fault party should compensate the deceased's family members to help with accident-related expenses. Only a personal injury lawyer in Albuquerque with years of experience helping victims pursue wrongful death claims can help you get the compensation you deserve.
