Car Accidents in New Mexico
A traffic accident can change your life forever. Unfortunately, thousands of people in the Albuquerque area are negatively affected by vehicle accidents every single year. In most instances, car crashes are caused by driver negligence.
Drunk driving is one of the leading causes of car crashes. Every year, thousands of people are killed or injured in accidents caused by drunk drivers across the United States. Here in New Mexico, we see families torn apart as a result of drunk drivers leaving their loved ones injured or taking their lives.
Failing to yield the right of way is another major contributor to car crashes. Even though motorists are provided the right-of-way in various situations, there are drivers who fail to yield it to them. As a result, they cause serious accidents that result in devastating and life-threatening injuries.
Running red lights is also a very common cause of car crashes in New Mexico, especially here in the Albuquerque area. When drivers run red lights, pass stop signs, or otherwise fail to adhere to traffic control devices at intersections, they place the lives of innocent people at risk.
