Deadly Pedestrian Accidents in New Mexico

Albuquerque, NM - Pedestrian Fatally Struck by Pickup at I-40 & Unser BlvdBecause pedestrians are more exposed to the dangers of the road, they are more likely to die in traffic accidents. Pedestrians often share the road together in New Mexico. The state has one of the highest pedestrian fatality rates in the country. Across the country, the number of people killed while walking is on the rise. Pedestrians are 1.5 times more likely than passenger car occupants to die in a car accident, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.

When a loved one dies as a result of someone else's negligence, it's natural for surviving family members to seek justice. Wrongful death lawsuits are one of the most difficult types of cases to handle. A wrongful death lawsuit may be able to assist families in obtaining the funds they require to cover funeral and burial costs, medical bills, mental anguish, and other expenses related to a fatal accident. A number of laws, including strict statutes of limitations and eligibility requirements, make wrongful death claims difficult to pursue. That is why having a qualified Albuquerque car accident lawyer on your side is advantageous.
