Motorcycle Accidents in Albuquerque
Despite only making up a slight percentage of roadway crashes, motorcycle accidents are over-represented in overall roadway fatalities each year. By design, motorcycles leave their riders extremely vulnerable to suffering life-threatening injuries. Riders are 27 times more likely to suffer fatal injuries in the event of a crash.
Thousands of motorcyclists are killed each year in car accidents. When a reckless driver is responsible, he or she can be held responsible for the resulting damages. Surviving family members should consult with a qualified Albuquerque motorcycle crash attorney to protect their legal rights.
