Speeding-Related Crashes in New Mexico
It’s a sad fact that speeding endangers the lives of everyone on the road, including the speeding driver. High-speed crashes nearly always result in injuries much more severe than typical crashes. The force of impact can also cause safety mechanisms on a vehicle to malfunction.
Speeding is a common form of reckless driving on the roads of Albuquerque. Each year, speeding drivers take the lives of thousands of people in preventable crashes. Injured victims should consult with a qualified Albuquerque personal injury lawyer to discuss possible compensation.
