Albuquerque Fatal Pedestrian Accidents
Sadly, many pedestrians are killed in motor vehicle crashes each year. The state of New Mexico is particularly dangerous for pedestrians and reportedly had the highest pedestrian fatality rate in 2017. When a pedestrian is hit by a car, they risk suffering life-threatening to fatal injuries.
Even when a pedestrian uses a crosswalk, drivers often fail to see them. This can result in a devastating accident. In some cases, surviving family members can pursue lost compensation with the help of a qualified Albuquerque wrongful death attorney.
