Albuquerque Bicycle Accident Lawyer
With over 300 sunshine days per year and more parkland than any other U.S. city, Albuquerque is one of the best cities to enjoy a good bike ride. Our over 400 miles of beautiful multi-use trails and on-street bicycle paths certainly see their fair share of use. Unfortunately, for a city of our size, we have a concerningly high fatality rate for bicyclists (an average of about five deaths for every 10,000 bike commuters per year).
If you or someone you care about has been injured or killed in a bicycle accident in the Albuquerque area, you may be able to recover compensation for your damages. Under New Mexico state law, victims of negligence are given two years from the date of an accident to file a claim for a bicycle accident. If you are interested in pursuing recovery of your damages, Dominguez Law may be able to help.
Types of Injuries Victims Could Suffer in an Albuquerque, New Mexico Bicycle Accident
Since bicyclists are virtually unprotected, when they get into an accident, they often suffer more severe injuries than victims of car accidents. Bicyclists do not have the benefit of protection that seatbelts, airbags, and even a metal exterior provide motor vehicle occupants.
Bicycle accidents in Albuquerque can result in devastating and excruciating injuries, such as:
- Back injuries
- Broken bones
- Internal organ damage
- Neck injuries
- Road rash
- Severed limbs
- Soft tissue injuries
- Spinal cord injuries
- Traumatic brain injuries (TBI)
Severe injuries sustained in bicycle accidents do not just affect a victim’s physical and mental well-being. Medical bills and other accident-related expenses often accumulate quickly, wreaking havoc on a victim’s financial security.

Attorney Paul M. Dominguez helps Albuquerque accident victims file and defend damage recovery claims to recoup both the economic and non-economic losses they have incurred from bicycle crashes caused by negligent parties.
