Deadly Motorcycle Accidents in New Mexico

Albuquerque, NM - Motorcyclist Killed in Crash with Semi at Louisiana Blvd & Copper AveMotorcycles have many advantages, but any rider needs to be familiar with motorcycle accident statistics here in New Mexico. A recent study by the University of New Mexico found that nearly 14.2 percent of all fatal crashes and 2.3 percent of all collisions involved motorcycles, and the percentage of fatalities among motorcyclists in crashes was 4.0 percent, compared to just 0.3 percent of other roadway users. 

It is crucial to realize that in a wrongful death case, the negligent party may be a person, a business, or corporation, or even both.  Everybody has a responsibility to act in a way that does not cause harm to others, and businesses have a responsibility to keep their properties free of dangers that could endanger or kill guests.  In order to defend the surviving family members or estates of people killed in preventable accidents, the Wrongful Death Act is applicable to both negligent people and negligent businesses.  

Someone who has been designated as the personal representative of the deceased person will need to file any resulting wrongful death lawsuit.  Depending on the circumstances, that representative might be a relative of the deceased person, a lawyer, or a guardian appointed by the court.  It is sometimes beneficial to have a neutral party represent the deceased person in the lawsuit when the survivors are at odds with one another or when there may be a dispute over who is entitled to any money recovered in the lawsuit. 

When someone is killed in a car accident, the surviving family members often suffer the most.
