Bicycle accidents result in serious injury (i.e., brain injury, spinal cord injury, fractured bones, amputations) and death for cyclists every year. Over the past many years, the lawyers at Martinez, Hart & Thomson, P.C. have developed broad experience in the unique issues surrounding accidents between automobiles and bicycles. The cases differ from standard motor vehicle accidents in several respects. In most cases, these catastrophic accidents are the result of negligent automobile drivers who fail to see bicyclists or do not acknowledge the bicyclist’s right to be on the road.
With more than 400 miles of bike paths through the city, Albuquerque is a great place for cycling. Plans continue to make the city even more pedal-cyclist friendly—and Martinez, Hart & Thompson, P.C. has been proud to participate in these efforts. But with the increase in bicycle traffic on the roadways comes increased risk for bicyclist injuries as a result of negligent, reckless and inattentive drivers.
