Readers of this New Mexico personal injury legal blog may be familiar with the adage, “It’s as easy as riding a bike.” Although it can take children some time to master the balance and coordination needed to successfully stay upright on a bicycle, once the skills are mastered there is practically nothing more enjoyable than riding one’s own bike down the road. Throughout the state bike riders take to their cycles for a number of reasons, from commuting to school or work to riding for exercise and enjoyment.
Despite the pleasures that individuals can derive from bike riding the practice can be dangerous when negligent and reckless drivers create dangers for cyclists. Every year a number of Americans are hurt and killed when drivers fail to yield, fail to check their blind spots and otherwise fail to operate their vehicles responsibly and collide with cyclists. The injuries that a bicyclist can suffer in a crash with a vehicle can be catastrophic and the costs of their medical treatment and care can be calamitous as well.
