Moped Crashes in New Mexico

Albuquerque, NM - Man Hurt in Moped Collision at Central Ave & California StRiding a moped can leave you more exposed to the dangers of the road. Just like motorcyclists, moped riders are more likely to sustain serious injuries in the event of an accident. Statistics show that nearly 40 percent of moped accidents result in bone fractures of some kind, and 7 percent of these crashes end in head trauma. Motorcycle and moped riders are nearly 27 times more likely to be killed in the event of a crash compared to those traveling in a passenger car. Unfortunately, almost 90 percent of moped riders lack any type of insurance coverage. 

There are certain things that you need to do after an accident. After you make sure that you were not seriously hurt, you need to gather any evidence that is available. You need to get the contact information of the other driver if another person was involved in the incident. Look around and see if there was anyone nearby who witnessed the crash. You should get their information as well because they can potentially provide crucial testimony in order to win your case. You need to contact the authorities so they can come and officially document the crash, and then you should always get medical attention. If you put off treatment, it can be a sign to the insurance provider that you were not seriously hurt, and it can even argue that your injuries were not related to the accident. 

You should not provide the insurance company will a recorded statement without first contacting a trusted New Mexico motorcycle crash lawyer.
