Drunk Driving Accidents in Albuquerque
Even though New Mexico has taken steps to curb drunk driving, there are still far too many drunk drivers out on the state’s roads. New Mexico has the highest alcohol-related fatality rate in the country, with Alaska coming in at a distant second. In 2015, 1,037 crashes in the state leading to injury or death involved alcohol.
When a driver acts negligently and causes a crash, he or she can be held responsible for the resulting damages. Drunk driving is extremely reckless behavior. Injured parties should consult with a New Mexico DUI crash attorney to pursue lost compensation for your injuries.
