Motorcycle riders face unique dangers that put them at greater risk than others on our roads. The Hayes Law Firm understands the unique challenges of cases involving motorcycle accidents. When accidents occur, motorcycles are at a distinct disadvantage compared to cars.

Hayes and his team handle motorcycle cases involving serious and catastrophic injuries, including traumatic brain and head injuries, spinal cord injuries, amputation, road rash, disfigurement, and broken or fractured bones.

Causes of Motorcycle Accidents

The Hayes Law Firm represents bikers hurt as a result of numerous causes of catastrophic motorcycle crashes, including driver inattentiveness, a driver who did not see a motorcyclist, a driver making a turn in front of a cyclist, and a driver making a risky lane change in front of a motorcyclist. If we represent you in your case, we will thoroughly investigate every potential avenue of liability and hold the responsible parties fully accountable to the maximum extent the law allows.

New Mexico Motorcycle Accidents

Motorcycles are more likely than passenger vehicles to be involved in a fatal collision. In 39 percent of these crashes, a motorcycle is passing another vehicle, going straight, or approaching it, while the other vehicle was turning left. Inattentive automobile drivers present a great danger to the motorcyclist. The fact is that 80 percent of motorcycle accidents are clearly shown to be the fault of the automobile driver and not that of the motorcyclist. Motorcyclists face a far higher risk of involvement in an injury-causing crash, stressing the need for an aggressive personal injury lawyer should the need arise. Motorcycle injuries are costly because they tend to be more serious and have much lengthier rehabilitation periods. An experienced attorney can make all the difference in the outcome of your case.
