According to The New Mexico Traffic Crash Annual Report, there were nearly 1000 motorcycle crashes in New Mexico in 2020. Of these motorcycle accidents, over 700 resulted in injuries, and 46 resulted in fatalities.
It can be challenging to determine who is responsible for a motorcycle accident. Sometimes, more than one party is at fault. Repair shops, part manufacturers, or road agencies could play a role in a motorcycle accident.
You’re entitled to seek compensation for damages when you’re hurt in a motorcycle accident.
If an insurance company is involved, they will do their best to blame you for some, if not all, of the accident. Then, if they offer you a settlement, it will likely feel insulting.
And that’s not right.
What can Weems Hazan Law do for me in a motorcycle crash lawsuit?
We can deal with the insurance company on your behalf. We’ll prove to them how the extent of your injuries has impacted your physical, mental, and financial health.
If they are unwilling to negotiate a fair settlement for you, we can take them to court, where we will use your medical bills and other records as proof of what you’ve lost as a result of this motorcycle crash. We may present crash scene evidence and testimony from experts and eyewitnesses. A jury will determine who is responsible for the crash, and based on the information we put together, they will decide the value of your loss.
The clock starts the day of your crash, giving you three years to file a motorcycle crash lawsuit. The sooner you hire an attorney, the easier it will be to gather evidence and get you on a path to recovery.
