Deadly Motorcycle Crashes in New Mexico
Riding motorcycles is a great pastime practiced by many New Mexican residents. However, riders are put at risk every time they enter the roadway. There is little protecting motorcyclists from the full impact of a serious crash.
Riders are often ejected from their bike, causing them to make hard contact with the pavement. In 2017 alone, 5,172 people were killed in motorcycle crashes in the United States. In some cases, surviving family members can recover lost compensation with the help of a New Mexico wrongful death attorney.
