New Mexico Reckless Driving Crashes

Albuquerque, NM - Accident with Injuries at I-40 & Rio Grande BlvdNo matter how safe a driver may be, they are still at risk of being injured by a reckless driver. Data from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration found that nearly 90% of reported crashes are due to human error. Drivers will often engage in reckless behaviors behind the wheel, with the most prevalent being speeding, intoxication, and driver distraction. Statistics show that 30% of reported crashes involve reckless drivers, and reckless driving is responsible for 13,000 fatal crashes each year, accounting for 33% of deadly accidents reported annually. 

In the state of New Mexico, plaintiffs injured in a vehicle collision have a right to be fully compensated for injuries resulting from the actions of a negligent party. When calculating the extent of a victim’s damages, many different factors are taken into consideration, including the suffering endured by the victim and the extent of their financial damages resulting from a New Mexico car accident. Considering all these factors can be overwhelming for those trying their best to recover after a car accident.
