A motorcycle accident has the potential to cause catastrophic injury, even if a rider is wearing a helmet and other protective gear. Without the protection of a motor vehicle’s steel frame and seatbelt, motorcyclists are vulnerable to serious harm in a traffic accident. It may take weeks or months of treatment and therapy, and a rider may be left with permanent physical limitations. Recovering after a motorcycle accident can be difficult, but the burden is made much easier with full and complete financial compensation for all injuries and losses suffered.
Recovering a fair settlement or award after a motorcycle accident is not easy, but our team at Ortega, McGlashan, Hicks & Perez, PLLC is here to put forth the necessary effort to secure the best possible result in your unique case. Our Albuquerque motorcycle accident attorneys have a considerable amount of experience with these claims and are willing to go the extra mile to help you get the money you need to rebuild your bike – and your life.

Recovering Fair Compensation After a Motorcycle Accident
The victim of a motorcycle accident may be entitled to compensatory damages, money intended to “compensate” the victim for his or her injuries, to restore as similar a quality of life as the victim enjoyed prior to the accident. Of course there is no amount of money that could possibly make up for life-changing injuries or the loss of a loved one in a motorcycle collision, but it can bring greater financial stability and peace of mind in knowing that the at-fault party has been brought to justice.
Our Albuquerque motorcycle accident lawyers are here to help victims pursue compensation for any and all losses or expenses they have experienced, such as:
- Emergency medical care
- Medical supplies
- Assistive devices and prosthetics
- Physical, occupational, and/or vocational therapy
- Ongoing medical treatment
- Outpatient or in-home care
- Travel costs to and from medical treatment
- Lost wages, bonuses, and/or benefits
- Loss of earning capacity and future earnings
- Emotional trauma
- Pain and suffering
- Loss of enjoyment of life
- Loss of consortium
- Funeral and burial costs
- Loss of companionship, support, and love
