New Mexico Intersection Crashes
Intersections are extremely dangerous, accounting for nearly half of all serious injuries and a quarter of all traffic deaths each year in the United States. Nearly a quarter of all intersection collisions are caused by left-hand turns. Each year, nearly 2.5 million car accidents occur at intersections, accounting for more than 40% of all reported car accidents in the United States, according to the Federal Highway Administration.
Following an auto accident, injured parties are simply looking for a way to get back on their feet and recover completely. Even for those with legal experience, negotiating with a large insurance company can be tedious and draining. The majority of accident victims have no idea how to file a claim for compensation for their injuries. Because you may not know where to begin, you should seek legal advice. Medical bills, lost wages, and pain and suffering caused by the accident are all possible damages after a car accident. After being involved in a car accident, the injured party's first priority is to find a way to recover.
