Fatal Pedestrian Crashes in New Mexico 

Albuquerque, NM - Pedestrian Dies in Accident at I-40 & Coors BlvdDespite a nationwide decline in fatalities on public transit, the number of individuals killed while walking is on the rise. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, pedestrians are 1.5 times more likely than passengers in passenger cars to die in a collision. Because pedestrians have less protection, they are more likely to be killed in a crash. The road is open to both pedestrians and automobiles. Those on foot, on the other hand, continue to be killed in large numbers by automobiles.

If a pedestrian accident victim retains the services of an experienced Albuquerque automobile accident lawyer, they may be eligible for compensation.
