Motorcycle Accidents in New Mexico

Albuquerque, NM - Motorcyclist Seriously Hurt in Crash at 47th St & Central AveThe National Highway Traffic Safety Administration reports that there were 298 traffic fatalities in New Mexico in 2015. A total of 38 fatalities that year, or 13% of all traffic fatalities, involved motorcycles. Although there were fewer motorcycle accidents in 2015 than there had been over the previous ten years, citizens of New Mexico continue to have grave concerns about these accidents. If a motorcycle accident injured you or a loved one, you should contact a lawyer as soon as possible.

You may decide to file a personal injury lawsuit as opposed to or after filing an insurance claim after a motorcycle crash. In situations where your damages exceed the policy limitations, you sustain catastrophic injuries, or the insurance provider behaves in bad faith, personal injury lawsuits may be warranted. To be successful, you must submit your claim before the statute of limitations expires.

To bring a personal injury case in New Mexico, you have three years from the date of your motorcycle accident. The court will probably dismiss your claim if you do not file your case by this deadline, which will prohibit you from seeking the damages you require to recover. You do not want to be vulnerable to missing these and other key deadlines if you choose to pursue compensation.
