High-Speed Crashes in New Mexico
Speeding is a dangerous habit. Sadly, it’s also one that’s practiced by far too many motorists across New Mexico. High-speed collisions increase everyone’s chances of being involved in a serious collision.
In 2017, nearly 26 percent of all fatal crashes were caused by speeding motorists. Speeding drivers are less able to control their vehicles, inhibiting their ability to navigate safely. Injured parties should consult with a qualified Albuquerque car crash attorney to discuss options for compensation.
