Deadly Motorcycle Accidents in New Mexico
Motorcycle drivers and passengers are particularly vulnerable in an accident. Because of these and other factors, motorcycle accidents account for a disproportionately high number of traffic fatalities on the national level. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, around 80% of motorcycle accidents result in death or serious injury. Statistics show that the risk of death for motorcycle riders is 27 times greater than that for passengers in passenger automobiles.
Families who have lost a loved one due to the negligence of another are understandably motivated to seek compensation. Wrongful death lawsuits are among the most challenging. A wrongful death case could provide families with the money they need to pay for funeral and burial fees, medical bills, mental anguish, and other losses resulting from a fatal incident. Wrongful death lawsuits entail a slew of rules and regulations, including time limits and restrictions on who can bring them.
