Common Injuries from Motorcycle Accidents

A motorcycle accident can cause a variety of devastating injuries. Due to the extreme difference in weight between a car and a motorcycle, riders almost always suffer worse injuries than a driver in the event of a collision. Depending on the speed at impact, these crashes can potentially be fatal.

A motorcycle accident can cause the following injuries:

Driver negligence is oftentimes a contributing factor to these collisions. Failing to check blind spots, speeding, and reckless driving can all lead to a motorcycle collision. If you have been hurt in a motorcycle accident due to another driver’s carelessness, our attorneys can file a personal injury claim on your behalf in pursuit of monetary compensation. If successful, you could be awarded damages as reimbursement for your pain and suffering, medical expenses, lost wages, and lost earning potential. Since compensation will vary, it is important that you consult with our firm in order to get a more accurate representation of your eligible damages.

How Long Do You Have to File a Lawsuit After a Motorcycle Accident in New Mexico?

After a motorcycle accident in New Mexico, understanding the timeframe within which you must file a lawsuit is crucial. This period, known as the statute of limitations, dictates the maximum duration you have to initiate legal proceedings following an accident. In New Mexico, the statute of limitations for personal injury cases, including those stemming from motorcycle accidents, is generally three years. This means that individuals involved in motorcycle accidents have three years from the date of the accident to file a lawsuit against the responsible party.

Preparing for a Potential Motorcycle Accident

While no one anticipates being involved in a motorcycle accident, preparing for such an event can help mitigate risks and ensure a smoother recovery process in the aftermath. Here are several proactive steps individuals can take to prepare for a potential motorcycle accident:

  • Motorcycle Gear and Training: Investing in high-quality gear, including a helmet, gloves, a jacket, and boots, can provide crucial protection in the event of an accident. Additionally, enrolling in motorcycle safety courses and regularly practicing defensive riding techniques can enhance skills and awareness on the road.
  • Medical and Insurance Documentation: Maintaining updated medical insurance information, including policy details and emergency contact numbers, can expedite medical treatment following an accident. Similarly, ensuring that your motorcycle insurance policy is current and comprehensive can provide financial protection in the event of injuries or property damage.
  • Emergency Contact Information: Carrying a card or storing emergency contact information in a readily accessible location, such as a wallet or phone, can facilitate communication with loved ones or legal representatives in the event of an accident. Also, letting someone know when and where you plan to ride can help them be aware in the event of an emergency.
  • Gathering Evidence: In the aftermath of a motorcycle accident, collecting evidence such as photographs of the scene, contact information for witnesses, and any relevant documentation (e.g., police reports, medical records) can strengthen potential legal claims and facilitate the claims process with insurance companies.
  • Legal Representation: Having a reputable motorcycle accident attorney can provide peace of mind and ensure access to prompt legal guidance and representation in the event of an incident.
