Sometimes, just the right events transpire to result in a motorcycle accident. While the odds are good that most motorcycle enthusiasts will avoid injury on their bike, some NM motorcyclists aren't so lucky. When a motorcycle accident results in bodily injury, there can be many expenses related to such an unexpected injury.
If another driver is involved in the motorcycle accident and is found to have been a negligent party in that accident, that person will have to compensate the victim. Negligence occurs when a person owes a duty or a standard of care and they do not uphold that duty and it results in personal injury. While there may have been no malicious intent behind a negligent party's actions, the results are the same. This is why an injured person can seek compensation from a party that they believe was negligent at the time of a crash.
