New Mexico Car Accidents
Few things are as stress-inducing as being involved in a car accident, especially when the crash is caused by a negligent driver. New Mexico is a state that attracts people from all over the country, and that results in countless out-of-state drivers, inexperienced drivers, and fatigued or distracted drivers filling the roadways.
The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) tracks vehicle collisions reported in each state, and the organization’s data shows that New Mexico has a high vehicle-fatality rate. In 2014, the state had a traffic fatality rate of 18.4 deaths per 100,000 people and 1.51 deaths per million vehicle miles traveled.
