Albuquerque Pedestrian Crashes
The Governor's Highway Safety Association (GHSA) found that New Mexico had the highest pedestrian fatality rate in the nation in 2017. In the state, there were 82 confirmed pedestrian fatalities going into the holiday season in 2018. This is an increase from the previous two years, where 79 and 77 pedestrians were killed respectively. On average, a pedestrian is killed in the United States every 88 minutes.
Pedestrians are at a serious disadvantage when involved in a crash with a motor vehicle in New Mexico. Unlike those traveling in passenger cars, pedestrians have little protecting them from the full impact of an accident, and this is why pedestrian crashes are over-represented in national roadway fatalities each year. A New Mexico pedestrian injury lawyer can help injured parties recover financial compensation for their injuries and other damages related to the crash.
