According to data provided by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), motorcycle crashes in the United States injured 88,000 people and killed nearly 5,000 more in 2015 alone. These statistics corroborate the essential fact that motorcyclists often face enormous dangers and catastrophic risks on the road.
More often than not, motorcycle crashes are caused by the inexperience, carelessness, or inattentiveness by other drivers on the road. This means that most victims of motorcycle crashes are entitled to recover monetary damages for their injuries and medical expenses.

Common Injuries Resulting From Motorcycle Crashes
Given the vulnerability of motorcyclists compared to other travelers on the road, it is no surprise that injuries stemming from motorcycle crashes can be catastrophic. Some common injuries resulting from motorcycle crashes are:
- Wrongful death;
- Traumatic brain injury;
- Spinal cord injuries resulting in paralysis, paraplegia, or quadriplegia; and
- Broken bones, facial disfigurement, limb amputation, and road rash.
We know what may be at stake and we are passionate about helping those injured in motorcycle crashes recover the full compensation to which they are entitled.
Do Not Delay Your Attorney Consultation
While New Mexico’s statute of limitations gives motorcycle crash victims up to three years from the date of the crash to file a lawsuit to recover damages for their injuries, it is critically important that you speak with an experienced motorcycle crash attorney prior to filing a claim or agreeing to a settlement with an insurance company. An attorney can help ensure that all esoteric insurance claim procedures are complied with and that any settlement offer is fair and just.
