Bicycle Crashes in New Mexico
Riding a bike is a great way to get around, but riders are greatly exposed to the dangers of the road. On a typical day in 2015, 316 persons were involved in 124 vehicle accidents in New Mexico, which led to 53 injuries and one fatality. Despite the high numbers in these data, there has been a decline in road deaths from 2006 to 2015.
Cycling is both a good option for a healthy lifestyle and a method of transportation that is kind to the environment. Accidents involving bicycles and motor vehicles or other dangers on the road are becoming more frequent in New Mexico as the number of cyclists continues to rise.
In the event that you or a member of your family sustained a catastrophic or fatal accident while riding a bicycle in the state of New Mexico, you may be able to file a claim for financial compensation to cover your medical bills, pain and suffering, loss of income, and other associated losses.
