New Mexico Car Accidents
Nearly anytime you get inside a car, you are at risk of being involved in a serious collision. No matter how safe of a driver you may be, you can never control the actions of another motorist. Across the United States, nearly 4.4 million people suffer non-life-threatening injuries that require medical attention in the event of a motor vehicle collision. The leading causes of death of citizens ages one to 54 are injuries resulting from car accidents. These crashes also come with a notable economic impact of nearly $871 billion annually in the United States. Of these expenses, an estimated $380 million are directly related to the costs of medical treatment. The United States has a significantly higher rate of car crashes than any other developed nation, nearly 50% greater than similar countries including Western Europe, Canada, Australia, and Japan.
