New Mexico Car Accidents
Car accidents are the leading cause of death and serious injury in New Mexico. Being injured in a crash can be difficult, and crash victims often have little experience pursuing a claim for lost damages. There are more than 40,000 car accidents reported in New Mexico each year, and hundreds of people are killed in these accidents. A crash takes place somewhere in the state every 12 minutes, and an accident with injuries is reported every 26 minutes. The leading cause of New Mexico car crashes is distracted driving, which has become more common with the growing popularity of cell phones.
Car crashes in New Mexico are caused by a variety of roadway hazards, such as poor driving, excessive speed, unsafe road conditions, poor truck maintenance, road construction, and inadequate signage. Determining liability for a crash can be difficult and more complex than simply determining fault, and injured parties are often unprepared to protect their legal rights after a catastrophic accident.
