Speeding-Related Crashes in New Mexico
At some point, almost all drivers will exceed the allowed speed limit. Sadly, many drivers make speeding a habit. That’s unfortunate because speeding is a primary factor in serious crashes throughout the country.
Nearly a third of car accidents are the result of speeding and a driver’s inability to control their vehicle. 29 percent of fatal crashes in 2013 involved speeding. Injured parties should contact a qualified New Mexico car crash attorney to discuss possible compensation.
