New Mexico Motorcycle Accidents & Drunk Drivers

Posted in Auto Accidents

Albuquerque motorcycle accidents are too common. They often require just the slightest lapse in attention from a negligent driver and can result in some of the most serious injuries. A New Mexico motorcycle accident lawyer is aware that many times these cases involve more complex areas of damages and require special attention and care.Unfortunately, a recent New Mexico motorcycle accident serves as a reminder to just how serious these accidents can be. Police responded to a motorcycle accident on Sunday night involving an SUV that rear-ended an unsuspecting motorcycle rider. The motorcyclist was stopped at Coors and Quail for a traffic light when he was rear-ended by a woman in an SUV. Making matters worse, the injured motorcyclist was pinned under the vehicle and required the assistance of various onlookers to be removed.

Recent reports also suggest that the woman failed a subsequent sobriety test and was arrested. This appears to be a New Mexico injury case in which no amount of money is going to be sufficient to compensate the accident victim. Separate from her criminal charges, the driver of the SUV will likely also be responsible for punitive damages in the event that sufficient insurance coverage exists.
