Bicycle Accidents in New Mexico

Albuquerque, NM - Cyclist Hurt in Hit-&-Run at Marquette Ave & Chula Vista PlWe all know that cycling is a wonderful hobby and a great way to get around the bustling cities of New Mexico. Statistics show that bicycle accidents are on the rise in the state. An estimated 2 percent of roadway fatalities in the state involve bicycle riders. There were 1,700 cyclists treated for crash injuries in New Mexico in 2013, and 89 of these victims suffered injuries serious enough to require hospitalization. There were 7 people killed in bicycle accidents in the Land of Enchantment that year. 

As a bicycle rider, you are at greater risk of suffering serious injuries in the event of a traffic accident. For this reason, it is common for riders to suffer serious injuries such as skull fractures, traumatic brain injuries, and spinal cord damage. Even if you wear a helmet, there is only so much you can do to protect yourself on the road. You can never completely control the actions of reckless drivers, and many motorists in New Mexico fail to look out for bicyclists. You need to consult with a qualified attorney who understands state law and can help you build a strong claim for compensation after being injured by a reckless motorist. 

Insurance adjusters often treat victims of bicycle crashes unfairly. They will try to do whatever they can in order to limit your overall compensation, and that means they will say anything that can get you to accept an unfair settlement. You need an attorney fighting on your behalf to make sure that you are able to get the compensation you need to cover the full extent of your damages after a serious bicycle accident in New Mexico.
