Common Injuries Resulting From Bicycle Crashes
Bicyclists are particularly vulnerable to a variety of serious injuries including:
- Wrongful death;
- Traumatic brain injury (most common where the victim was not wearing a helmet);
- Spinal cord injuries resulting in paralysis, paraplegia, or quadriplegia; and
- Broken bones, fractures, and lacerations.
These injuries can be exceptionally costly to treat and the toll they can take on a person’s physical and mental health should not be underestimated. At Will Ferguson & Associates, our attorneys will work tirelessly to secure the monetary compensation you need to recover.
Do Not Delay Your Attorney Consultation
While your well-being should be your top concern in the day, weeks, and months following a bicycle crash, you should also try to carve some time to speak with an attorney about your case.
Under New Mexico’s statute of limitations, a lawsuit to recover damages for injuries sustained in a bicycle crash must be commenced within three years after the date of the crash. Nevertheless, personal injury cases can take years to resolve, so it is smart to get your case started as early as possible. Retaining counsel early may also help you avoid missing other deadlines that may apply to your case for and can ensure that crucial evidence is collected and preserved before it is too late.
Why do you need an attorney?
In almost all cases, litigants represented by attorneys wind up more satisfied with the outcomes of their cases than the unrepresented. Bicycle crash cases, where the stakes may be high and the injuries may be catastrophic, are no exception.
