Deadly Moped Crashes in New Mexico

Albuquerque, NM - Moped Rider Killed in Collision at Central Ave & Garcia StA startling 5,172 motorcycle riders lost their lives in crashes in 2017, accounting for 14% of all motor vehicle crash fatalities. The US Department of Transportation reports that there are currently 8.5 million registered motorcycles in the state that year. You need to understand what causes motorcycle accidents in order to finally identify potential solutions related to motorcycle crashes. 

The law in New Mexico gives surviving spouses, children under the age of 18, and other close relatives the option to do so as their main means of obtaining some measure of justice for the loss of a loved one, even though receiving compensation for the untimely death of a loved one will never bring them back. The personal representative of the deceased person may be used to bring a wrongful death claim on behalf of the deceased individual's surviving children, spouse, or other family members. Many people are unsure if they have the right to file a claim for damages after the loss of a family member.
