Pedestrian Crashes in New Mexico
Pedestrians are more vulnerable to the dangers of the road, making them more likely to sustain serious injuries in car accidents. Pedestrians and motorists frequently cross paths on the road in New Mexico. Since 2016, the state has had the highest rate of pedestrian deaths in the country. Pedestrian fatalities are on the rise across the United States, and walkers are 1.5 times more likely to die in a car accident than passengers in passenger cars.
A pedestrian is vulnerable to the full force of an impact in the event of a serious collision. As a result, pedestrians are frequently involved in traffic accidents resulting in serious or fatal injuries. In the event of a collision, pedestrians are vulnerable to life-altering injuries as well as other damages such as medical bills, lost wages, and pain and suffering. Injured parties can sometimes recover lost compensation and hold the at-fault party responsible for the accident with the help of a qualified Albuquerque car accident lawyer. This may be the only way to get the full value of their claim in some cases.
