New Mexico Car Accidents
Major accidents in New Mexico are continuously caused by all different types of driver negligence. Speeding and driver intoxication are two of the most commonly reported forms of driver negligence. In New Mexico, in 2020, about one-fourth of reported auto collisions were caused by speeding. Accidents caused by speeding also resulted in more deaths than any other kind of crash. Driver error/negligence is the main contributing factor to New Mexico traffic collisions.
Approximately 25% of traffic accident fatalities in the United States were caused by drunk drivers in 2020. Around 75% of the deceased victims had been drinking and driving at the time of their passing. Two side effects that occur when we drink, including blurred vision and impaired judgment, are extremely dangerous when mixed with driving. When car accidents are caused by intoxicated drivers, they are usually more severe and catastrophic.
If you or a loved one has sustained injuries in a car wreck caused by speeding, intoxication, or another form of negligence, you may be eligible to collect financial compensation.
