Motorcycle Crashes in New Mexico
Thousands of motorcyclists are killed in vehicle accidents in the United States each year, and the death toll is rising. Motorcycling is a popular pastime in New Mexico, with many residents enjoying long rides on their bikes across the state. Motorcyclists and their passengers are particularly susceptible to an accident.
Because of these and other factors, motorcycle accidents account for a disproportionately high number of traffic deaths on a nationwide level. Around 80% of motorcycle accidents result in death or injury, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. Statistics show that the risk of death for motorcycle riders is 27 times greater than that for passengers in passenger automobiles.
After a tragic motorcycle accident, the family members of the deceased should consult with a New Mexico motorcycle injury lawyer to learn about their legal options for financial compensation.
Disrespectful motorists who refuse to follow the law and share the road with motorcyclists are a major cause of motorcycle accidents in New Mexico. These drivers must pay for their negligence when it results in a serious collision.
A motorcyclist is killed or injured every day in New Mexico. Motorcycle deaths are on the rise across the country even as other types of car accidents have declined. Not only are motorcycle riders more vulnerable to serious injury. Sadly, most motorists fail to keep a sufficient look out for them, resulting in deadly New Mexico motorcycle accidents.
