According to Titlemax, New Mexico accounts for 64,600 total registered motorcycles. With more than 300 days of sunshine in Rio Rancho and the beautiful scenery of the Rio Grande River Valley, it’s no surprise that thousands of motorcycles hit the roads every year. Unfortunately, this means you’re going to see more motorcycle accidents, with a 35 times greater chance of death than that in a car. Motorcyclists assume a higher risk of fatality, injury, and possibly court discrimination.
Personal Injury Claim for Motorcycle Accident
As motorcycle accident attorneys, our firm can help you determine whether you should file a personal injury claim. Some things that can help sort out this decision are:
- You were not at fault and can prove the other party acted with negligence.
- The other party was primarily responsible for the accident.
- The other party’s negligence caused you serious harm (physical or emotional).
Types of Motorcycle Accident Damages
Many causes of motorcycle accidents include unsafe lane changes, unsafe left turns, dangerous roads, and speeding. The types of damages that can be collected after a motorcycle accident include medical expenses for injuries, property damage, pain and emotional distress, and loss of income due to injury.
As Rio Rancho continues to grow and bolster a strong community with more than 105,000 residents the likelihood of an increased volume of motorcycle or vehicle accidents will increase because of more traffic activity across the city. Fortunately, much of the most recent and planned road construction projects in Rio Rancho will accommodate the growth projections and help ensure safer roadways.
