Deadly Pedestrian Crashes in New Mexico

Albuquerque, NM - Pedestrian Fatally Hit in DUI Crash at Coal Ave & Tulane DrPedestrians are more susceptible to road hazards, which increases their risk of serious injury in car accidents. In New Mexico, pedestrians and motorists frequently cross paths on the road. Since 2016, the state has had the country's highest rate of pedestrian deaths. Pedestrian fatalities are on the rise in the United States, with pedestrians 1.5 times more likely than passengers in passenger cars to die in a car accident.

A pedestrian is vulnerable to the full force of a serious collision. As a result, pedestrians are frequently involved in traffic accidents that result in serious or fatal injuries. In the event of a collision, pedestrians are vulnerable to life-altering injuries and other damages, such as medical expenses, lost wages, pain and suffering, and other losses. These collisions have resulted in life-altering and even fatal injuries in the past. Injured parties can sometimes recover lost compensation and hold the party responsible for the crash responsible for the resulting damages with the help of a qualified Albuquerque car accident lawyer. This may be the only way to get the full value of their claim in some cases.
