New Mexico Deadly Pedestrian Crashes
It’s a reality that pedestrian crashes often result in fatal injuries. Many drivers fail to notice pedestrians as they enter the road. When a motor vehicle collides with someone walking in the street, there is little protecting the injured party from the full extent of the crash.
On average, a pedestrian is killed nearly every 88 minutes across the country. There were 5,977 reported pedestrian deaths in 2017 alone. In some cases, surviving family members may be eligible to recover lost compensation after the loss of a loved one.
