Albuquerque, NM - Bicyclist Hurt in Collision at Isleta Blvd & Arenal Rd

If you are cycling on the road, proceed with caution. According to statistics from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, there were 623 cyclist fatalities nationwide in 2010 compared to 871 in 2018, an increase of more than 40%. Bicycle accidents do not always involve collisions with other vehicles. Instead, riders are much more likely to get into accidents from falling or slamming into stationary objects. In contrast, riders who are struck by a careless driver may be able to file a personal injury claim for compensation.

Drivers in New Mexico are required to carefully share the road with cyclists. There are definite rules that bicyclists and drivers shall both follow. You must establish carelessness on the part of the offending party in order to have a case against them for your injuries. You have the option to seek financial compensation as a cyclist who has been hurt through an insurance settlement or a court judgment. Families who have lost a loved one may also be able to pursue justice through a wrongful death or survivor action claim. Every case has unique factors that affect it, making it difficult to predict what you can expect to get without speaking to an attorney.

Speak with a lawyer as soon as you can if you suffered injuries in a bicycle accident so they can begin building your case. If you were in a catastrophic accident and want to ensure that you are fairly reimbursed for your damages and that you do everything in your power to defend your claim, you need to have a lawyer on your side.
