Pedestrian Accidents in New Mexico
Pedestrians are more vulnerable to road hazards, increasing their chances of serious injury in car accidents. Pedestrians and motorists frequently cross paths on the road in New Mexico. Since 2016, the state has had the highest rate of pedestrian deaths in the country. Pedestrian fatalities are on the rise in the United States, with pedestrians 1.5 times as likely to die in a car accident as passengers in passenger cars.
In the event of a serious collision, a pedestrian is exposed to the full force of the impact. As a result, pedestrians are frequently injured or killed in traffic accidents. Pedestrians are vulnerable to life-altering injuries and other damages, such as medical expenses, lost wages, pain and suffering, and other losses, in the event of a collision. In the past, these collisions have resulted in life-altering or fatal injuries. With the help of a qualified Albuquerque car accident lawyer, injured parties can sometimes recover lost compensation and hold the party responsible for the crash responsible for the resulting damages. In some cases, this may be the only way to get the full value of their claim.
