New Mexico Fatal Pedestrian Crashes
Pedestrians often suffer the worst of injuries when involved in a crash with a motor vehicle. It’s a reality that many drivers neglect to look out for pedestrians who enter the roadway. This is the leading cause of severe pedestrian accidents.
82 pedestrians were killed in 2018, marking an increase from the previous year. When a pedestrian is killed, their surviving family often has to handle the aftermath. In some cases, they may be able to recover lost compensation by contacting a New Mexico wrongful death lawyer.
