Deadly Pedestrian Crashes in New Mexico
Pedestrians are more vulnerable to the dangers of the road, and this makes them more likely to suffer serious injuries in car accidents. In New Mexico, pedestrians and motorists frequently cross paths on the road. Since 2016, the state has had the country's highest rate of pedestrian deaths. Pedestrian fatalities are on the rise in the United States, with pedestrians 1.5 times more likely than passengers in passenger cars to die in a car accident.
Wrongful death lawsuits are filed when a loved one dies as a result of another party's negligence, with the goal of compensating the surviving family members. Getting that compensation, on the other hand, is frequently easier said than done. The victim's death does not absolve the perpetrator of responsibility. Insurance companies for those who are at fault frequently try to shift blame after a fatal accident. Rather than compensating the family members of the deceased after a fatal car accident, the defendant should compensate the family members to assist with accident-related expenses. You will need the help of an Albuquerque car accident lawyer who has extensive experience representing wrongful death victims.
