Deadly Motorcycle Accidents in New Mexico

Albuquerque, NM - One Killed in Motorcycle Collision at Central Ave & Atrisco DrAccording to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, 298 traffic fatalities occurred in New Mexico in 2015. Motorcycles were involved in 38 fatalities throughout that year, or 13% of all traffic fatalities. In spite of the fact that there were fewer motorcycle accidents in 2015 than there had been over the preceding ten years, New Mexicans are still very concerned about them. If a motorcycle accident caused you or a loved one harm, you should speak with an attorney as soon as possible. 

When someone dies as a consequence of the carelessness, recklessness, negligence, or intentional behavior of another person or entity, this is known as wrongful death. Many wrongful death situations call for quick action. Safeguarding evidence and finding defendants are frequently essential if full financial recovery is to be accomplished.

Personal injury and wrongful death cases are both based on negligence, and they have a lot in common. There are, however, a few key distinctions. Personal injury claims solely concern an injury to the party, which is the most obvious distinction between them and wrongful death claims. Surviving family members of the victim may be eligible to recover compensation for certain damages.
