High-Speed Collisions in New Mexico
Highway drivers have a habit of driving faster than the posted speed limits. This is especially common on long stretches of road where no one else is in sight. However, high speeds can result in severe injuries in the event of a crash.
Speeding drivers are less able to control their vehicles and avoid roadway hazards. 9,378 people were killed in high-speed collisions in 2018 alone. Sometimes, injured parties are eligible to recover lost compensation after a crash.
