Albuquerque roadways are anything but predictable. New Mexico law mandates that drivers stop at the scene of a crash and exchange insurance and contact information. In the event that a driver does not do this, the injured victims may be able to pursue legal action against the driver, with the help of a New Mexico hit-and-run attorney.
There were 2,049 deaths by hit-and-run in the United States in 2016. Being involved in a hit-and-run, can cause stress and confusion for those injured. When a victim is injured in a hit-and-run, they may be eligible to file a legal claim to recover lost compensation.
