Car Wrecks in Albuquerque
Tens of thousands of car crashes happen in New Mexico per year. These wrecks injure around 20,000 people annually while taking the lives of about 400 people. Car wrecks happen most often in New Mexico due to speeding and driver distraction. Driver distraction is the main cause of auto crashes throughout the nation, causing more than 400,000 vehicle crashes per year.
Drivers who speed, drive drunk, and are over-tired also cause thousands of auto crashes per year. Most of the car crashes reported in the nation are caused by negligent drivers. In the United States, over 3 million people are hurt per year in auto crashes. This is alarming when we consider that the main cause of these wrecks is negligent driving.
Negligent drivers are often fined and jailed depending on the types of accidents they cause and their severity. In the United States, it is illegal to drive negligently, as it usually leads to serious injuries and even death. Regardless of this fact, people continue to engage in negligent acts while behind the wheel. If you or a loved one has recently been hurt in a car wreck caused by driver negligence, you should call a car crash lawyer at your earliest convenience. A lawyer can help you get the money you need to pay for the costs related to your wreck.
