Victims of Albuquerque Bus Accidents Resulting in the Wrongful Death of a Passenger Requires Strong Legal Representation

The City of Albuquerque, New Mexico transit and bus system, ABQ Ride, is an important system and function in our city.  It is heavily relied upon and used by a large number of people to get to work, school, run errands, and engage in leisure activities.  We rely on these buses for timely, affordable, and safe travel.  However, sometimes this is not always the case.  These buses are very large and heavy, and can cause very serious and permanent injuries in a bus crash.  Not only can passengers on the bus be seriously injured, but any vehicle or person who is hit with the motor vehicle can be seriously injured or killed in even low-speed collisions.
