BICYCLE ACCIDENT ATTORNEY ALBUQUERQUE NM
Albuquerque is a bicycle-friendly city, encompassing over 400 miles of on-street bicycle lanes and bike trails. Unfortunately, each year, some drivers fail to share the road and place bicyclists at severe risk of injury.
Due to our countless technology gadgets, drivers can be easily distracted by talking on the phone, text messaging, inputting an address into their GPS system… the list goes on.
Due to the complexity of most bicycle accident cases, it is highly recommended to consult with an experienced lawyer as soon as possible.
