Pedestrian Or Bicycle Accidents
You Deserve Compensation From Drivers Who Refuse To Share The Roads
New Mexico’s roadways remain among the most dangerous in the country, especially for bicyclists and pedestrians. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) ranked New Mexico as having the highest pedestrian death rate per capita in the United States in its 2008 National Pedestrian Crash Report — amounting to 41 pedestrian fatalities in 2011.

By holding drivers responsible in the civil courts for their careless actions, we can make drivers think twice before they disregard the safety of others.

We will work with the insurance companies to make sure you are treated fairly and that you receive reasonable compensation.
Avoiding Bicycle And Pedestrian Accidents In New Mexico
Accidents can happen anywhere. From New Mexico’s cities to its rural stretches, you are at risk of being hit by a distracted drunk driver. Because bicyclists and pedestrians lack the protections that motorists have, even a slow-speed crash can result in serious harm. A motor vehicle crash can result in head injuries, amputation, damage to the spinal cord and other lifelong ailments. We can help you obtain proper care as well as compensation for your medical treatment.
Companies Are Liable For Defective Products— Like Bike Helmets
Although state law requires only bikers under the age of 18 to wear helmets, everyone should. However, a defective bike helmet may actually be worse than no helmet. If you or your child’s helmet failed during a bike crash, you may have a cause of action against the manufacturer or the vendor.
