Motorcycles are popular in Santa Fe, and can be seen on the road throughout the year. A motorcycle accident can cause serious injuries, and recovering financial compensation can be complicated. That’s why you need an experienced motorcycle accident attorney to fight for you. The Szantho Law Firm can help.
Attorney Andras Szantho knows that to many motorists, motorcyclists are little more than a nuisance. They’ll try to drive around motorcycles and don’t think of them as motor vehicles. Sometimes, they don’t even notice motorcycles. Too often, the result is a serious crash that leaves a motorcyclist hurt.
Motorcyclists have little protection on the road, so during a crash they can be seriously hurt. Minor injuries can include cuts, bruises and road rash. More serious injuries include broken bones and injuries to the head, neck or back. Severe injuries include spinal cord injuries and traumatic brain injury.
An attorney who takes on the insurance companies

Recovery can take months or even longer. Some people never fully recover and are left with a permanent disability.
You deserve compensation if you’ve been hurt in a motorcycle crash. Negligent drivers often deny responsibility and don’t admit to doing anything wrong, though.
