New Mexico Pedestrian Crashes

Albuquerque, NM - Fatal Pedestrian Accident on Central Ave near Valencia Dr Pedestrians are more likely to be fatally injured in auto accidents. This is due to the fact that they travel totally unprotected against the strong force of large vehicles. When pedestrians are involved in accidents, they often sustain injuries that are debilitating or even fatal. Broken bones, brain injuries, and spinal cord injuries are extremely common among pedestrians involved in traffic accidents. 

New Mexico has had the highest number of pedestrian fatalities in the United States since 2016. Statistics show that pedestrians are almost twice as likely to lose their lives in auto accidents than the occupants of vehicles. Unfortunately, the majority of pedestrian accidents in the United States are caused by negligent drivers. Driver negligence is responsible for almost all of the traffic accidents reported in the United States. 

Serious car wrecks happen most often due to the actions of distracted, intoxicated, speeding, or over-tired drivers. Drivers who are not paying close attention to the road and their immediate surroundings are more likely to end up hitting a pedestrian who is attempting to cross the road, or who is walking along the sidewalk. When you lose a loved one in a pedestrian crash caused by a negligent driver, it is necessary to take legal action so you can recover compensation. 

You can collect financial compensation for the costs related to funeral care, burial costs, medical care costs, lost wages, pain, suffering, loss of life enjoyment, loss of consortium, and more. Many different damages, both economic and non-economic, may result from losing a loved one in a car wreck caused by a negligent driver. Not only do you deserve to be compensated for your loss, but the negligent party needs to be held accountable for their actions so they are less likely to hurt another person in the future, and so you get the justice you deserve.
