According to the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety, there were about 62,000 motorcycle registrations in the state of New Mexico in 2017. Riding a motorcycle can expose the rider to more severe injuries in the event of an accident than riding in a car. Because of the smaller size of motorcycles, they are less visible to other vehicles and pedestrians.
Getting into any accident is scary, but motorcycle accidents may be especially upsetting because of the increased risk of lasting scars or permanent injuries. After a motorcycle accident, you may file an accident claim on your own. However, navigating this process can be overwhelming while you are trying to recover from your injuries. An attorney who specializes in motorcycle injuries can help you deal with the fallout of the accident while maximizing the compensation you receive.
If you or someone you love has been injured in a motorcycle accident, call Zinda Law Group at (800) 863-5312 for a 100% free case evaluation with our Las Cruces motorcycle accident attorneys.
Who Was at Fault for the Accident?
As with any other accident, proving liability for a motorcycle accident is necessary in order to recover damages. All motorists owe a duty of care to others on the road. When there is a breach of that duty by a driver, they may be held responsible for the resulting damage to persons and property. You can hold the other driver accountable and pursue compensation for your injuries by proving that he or she was negligent.
New Mexico is a pure comparative fault state, which means that you are able to recover the amount of negligence of the defendant no matter if you also contributed to the accident. For example, if you were found to be 60% negligent and the defendant was 40% negligent, you could recover 40% of the total damages from the defendant.
Compensation for Your Injuries
One of the things you may be concerned about after a motorcycle accident is paying for medical bills and other necessary treatment. The injuries sustained after a motorcycle accident can require extensive surgeries, medical care, and rehabilitation. Keeping a record of any out-of-pocket expenses will be helpful when it comes time to prove the amount of damages you are seeking.
There are various types of compensation you may be able to pursue depending on the specific facts of your case. Here are some examples of commonly pursued damages:
- Medical bills and expenses (present and future)
- Lost wages
- Loss of earning capacity
- Loss of consortium
- Pain and suffering
- Wrongful Death
