Motorcycle Accidents in Albuquerque
When motorcyclists are on the road, they are faced with an array of risks and potential hazards. A study conducted by the National Center for Statistics and Analysis (NCSA) found that 5,286 motorcyclists were killed in vehicle collisions across the country in 2016. This is a 5.1% increase from the previous year when 5,029 riders were killed in accidents nationwide. Of those reported motorcycle fatalities in 2016, 42 occurred in the state of New Mexico.
Every day, a motorcyclist is injured or killed in New Mexico, and motorcycle fatalities have been on the rise across the country, despite an overall drop in other types of car accidents. Not only are riders more likely to be seriously injured, but most drivers also fail to look out for motorcyclists like they should, resulting in catastrophic motorcycle accidents across the state of New Mexico. In fact, despite what some people may think about, most New Mexico motorcycle accidents are caused by the actions of reckless drivers who are not fulfilling their duty to share the road safely with motorcyclists.
