New Mexico Deadly Bicycle Crashes

Albuquerque, NM - Fatal Bicycle Accident at Eubank Blvd & Constitution AveWe can all agree that cycling is a fantastic pastime and a great way to travel through the busy cities of New Mexico. However, this does not mean it is a completely safe activity for everyone. According to the latest crash statistics, the state is seeing an increase in bicycle accidents. Bicyclists are thought to be involved in 2 percent of the state's traffic fatalities. In 2013, 1,700 cyclists were treated for crash-related injuries in New Mexico, and 89 of these victims required hospitalization due to their injuries. Bicycle accidents claimed the lives of 7 people that year in New Mexico.

Someone who is innocently riding a bicycle should be able to safely travel throughout Albuquerque. Unfortunately, cyclists often find themselves the victims of serious traffic accidents all over New Mexico. There is little protection for the rider from the full impact of the crash, and that means they are at greater risk of suffering life-threatening injuries. As a result, many New Mexico bicyclists are seriously injured and killed in car accidents every single year. If someone close to you is unexpectedly killed due to the actions of a reckless driver, it is understandable that you are going through intense feelings of despair and grief. You need to do everything in your power to make sure that you and your surviving family are able to make a financial recovery in the aftermath of a deadly bicycle crash.
