Bicycle Accidents in New Mexico

Albuquerque, NM - Bicyclist Hurt in Collision at 12th St & I-40

You should use caution if you’re riding a bicycle on the road. National Highway Traffic Safety Administration figures on bicycle accidents show that there were 623 cyclist fatalities nationally in 2010 compared to 871 in 2018, an increase of over 40%. The vast majority of bicycle accidents don’t involve collisions with other vehicles. Instead, riders are significantly more likely to suffer injuries from falling or hitting objects that are stationary. But when riders are hit by a reckless driver, they may be eligible to recover compensation in a personal injury claim. 

You may be eligible for financial compensation if another driver’s negligence caused your injuries in a car accident in New Mexico. Regrettably, in order to accomplish their business goals, insurance companies frequently look for ways to compensate accident victims with the least amount of money possible. Because of this, you need a tenacious New Mexico automobile accident lawyer who will stand up for your rights if you want to receive the compensation you are entitled to during this awful period in your life.

It may be challenging and perplexing to file a car accident claim in New Mexico after being involved in an unforeseen traffic accident. A personal injury lawyer who focuses on such cases can be useful. Verify that your legal counsel is knowledgeable enough to comprehend all of New Mexico’s regulations pertaining to auto accidents. This will give them the power to bargain on your behalf for a reasonable settlement. If settlement talks do not end in a favorable resolution for you, your attorney must be ready to go to trial in order to win your case.

If you were hurt in an accident that was the fault of another driver, contact a lawyer as soon as you can to start constructing your case.
