Speeding-Related Accidents in New Mexico
The role of speeding in a New Mexico car accident is usually described in how it impacts the driver. Speeding decreased a driver’s reaction time significantly, making them less prepared to deal with dangers on the road. Vehicle safety devices do not function properly at high-speeds, putting passengers at greater risk of injury. In 2018, speeding was involved in nearly 26% of deadly crashes, resulting in a total of 9,378 fatalities.
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.
