Deadly Motorcycle Crashes in New Mexico
Thousands of motorcyclists are killed in car accidents every year in the United States, with the number of fatalities increasing year after year. Motorcycle riding is very popular in New Mexico, and many people enjoy riding their bikes all over the state. More than 80% of motorcycle accidents result in death or injury, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, with motorcyclists having an almost 27 times greater risk of dying in a traffic accident.
When a loved one dies as a result of another party's negligence, wrongful death lawsuits are filed to compensate the surviving family members. Getting that compensation is frequently easier said than done. The fact that the victim died does not relieve the wrongdoer of their responsibility for the deadly accident. Insurance companies of the at-fault party will frequently try to shift blame after a fatal crash. The defendant should compensate the family of the deceased to help with accident-related expenses. Only an Albuquerque personal injury lawyer with years of experience helping victims pursue wrongful death claims can assist you.
