Speeding-Related Crashes in Albuquerque
Certain actions are more likely to cause a serious car accident. When drivers speed, they tremendously increase the odds of being involved in a crash. The force of a high-speed crash ultimately increases the severity of the resulting injuries.
Speeding was cited as a factor in 26 percent of all fatal collisions in 2017. Those who are injured in a high-speed crash often sustain serious injuries and other damages. Crash victims should contact a trained New Mexico car crash lawyer to protect their legal rights.
