Important Points about a New Mexico Motorcycle Accident from our New Mexico Auto Accident Lawyer

Understanding the Risks, Common Causes, and Damages of New Mexico Motorcycle Accident

One of the most dangerous and commonly fatal type of auto accident is a New Mexico motorcycle accident.  This is simply because motorcyclists do not have the same protections that other occupants of vehicles have.  Not just seatbelts and airbags, but even just the basic metal shell around the occupant that a car has.  Motorcycle accidents also usually result in significant impacts before other drivers did not see or identify the motorcyclists on the roadway at the time of the collision.  This means that motorcycle drivers will get hit with full force or nearly full force, resulting in catastrophic injuries that should be evaluated by a New Mexico auto accident lawyer.

Such lawyer like one at the Caruso Law Offices, P.C.  Our compassionate and experienced New Mexico auto accident lawyer will help determine liability and what damages you may receive compensation for the motorcycle accident.  Damages may include pain and suffering, lost wages, lost earnings, medical bills, property damage, and many other types of compensable damage.  Call our office for a FREE consultation by dialing (505) 883-5000 to learn more today.

There are many possible risks with a New Mexico motorcycle accident.  This is because motorcycles are harder to see because they are smaller and have a much thinner profile.  This is particularly true during inclement weather or at night, or when a motorcycle is passing and a driver looks in the mirror briefly but doesn’t see him or her.  

Motorcycles are also harder to gauge the speed of, specially at night or in bright sun.  Tractor trailers also have a harder time observing motorcycles given their length and gauging their speed given how long the trailer is which means the motorcyclists is also further away.
