Fatal Auto Accidents in New Mexico
According to the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety, New Mexico has one of the highest rates of fatal car accidents in the country. A car collision occurs every 12 minutes, according to data from New Mexico. Almost 40,000 people are injured in car accidents across the state each year.

Accident victims may be able to hire an Albuquerque personal injury lawyer to help them get full compensation for their losses.
Wrongful death lawsuits seek reimbursement for a family member who died as a result of another's carelessness. Compensation isn't always as simple as it looks to be. Even if the victim perished as a result of the accident, the party that caused it should be held liable. It's not unusual for people whose insurance companies are at fault in a deadly accident to try to blame someone else.
The defendant should compensate the families for the expenses incurred as a result of the accident. This could only be accomplished by an Albuquerque car accident lawyer who has vast expertise representing the families of victims in wrongful death claims.
