Motorcycle Accident Lawyers in Albuquerque
Statistics show that motorcyclists are at greater risk of being involved in an accident than other drivers. If you or a loved one have been involved in a motorcycle accident where the other driver is at fault, Zinda Law Group in Albuquerque, NM can help you file a personal injury claim to help pay for injuries sustained during the accident.
Vulnerability of Motorcyclists
Driving a two-wheeled vehicle comes with several risks. Two-wheeled vehicles are highly unstable with little protective gear, and losing one's balance can result in the rider falling into oncoming traffic and suffering severe physical trauma or death. As a motorcyclist, you are more prone to injury than those who are riding in an enclosed vehicle.
Drivers tend to not pay enough attention when driving near motorcyclists. In the event of a collision where the other driver is not paying attention and collides into a motorcyclist, the law deems the driver as negligent. If you have been involved in a motorcycle accident and believe that the other driver is to blame, Zinda Law Group will help you determine if you can file a claim for the injuries sustained during the accident.
Severity of Motorcycle Injuries
Motorcycle accidents can result in more severe injuries than enclosed vehicle accidents. Because riding a motorcycle exposes your body to high speeds, your injuries may include:
- Broken bones
- Bruises and cuts
- Neck and back injuries
- Head or brain injuries
- Spinal cord injuries
- Severe sprains or contusions
Any injuries sustained during the motorcycle accident may require you to take time off work and suffer from wages lost. Severe injuries may come with expensive medical bills on top of your loss of income. If you or your loved one suffered severe trauma to the head or brain, you may face rehabilitation, long-term treatment, or lifetime care, which can place a tremendous financial burden on you or your family.
Proof of Liability
If you believe your motorcycle accident was caused by the other driver, then you can legally file a personal injury claim. New Mexico law requires the victim to prove the other driver is at fault and the injuries sustained are in direct result of the accident. Zinda Law Group will utilize your medical bills and treatment plan as evidence to prove the injuries sustained where related to the accident. You can also collect any contact information from eye witnesses, take pictures of the accident, and write down all the accident details, including the other driver's contact information and police officer's ID.
