New Mexico Head-On Collisions
Head-on crashes are one of the most lethal types of car accidents. In dense urban areas like Albuquerque, head-on crashes are responsible for 7 percent of all fatal collisions. 26,861 cars were involved in deadly head-on crashes in 2005.
Like all crashes, head-on crashes can result in serious injuries. Head-on collisions involve high-speeds, creating substantial forces in the event of an accident. In some cases, victims of these accidents are able to recover lost compensation by contacting a trained New Mexico car crash lawyer.
