Car Accidents in New Mexico
The aftermath of a motor vehicle accident can be incredibly difficult to deal with. Unfortunately, tens of thousands of people in New Mexico are left with painful physical and emotional injuries following crashes every year. In many cases, people suffer debilitating car crash injuries due to negligent drivers. Some of the leading factors in car crashes in our state include:
- Drivers who are impaired: Intoxicated motorists are a danger to themselves and other drivers on the road. They may not be able to see clearly, or they may not be able to react quickly enough to avoid a crash.
- Drivers who run red lights or stop signs: Drivers who blow through stop signs are also a danger to other drivers on the road. They may not see the stop sign, or they may not care that it is there. Either way, they pose a danger to themselves and other drivers.
- Drivers who are distracted: Drivers who use their cell phones while driving are also a hazard. They may be distracted by their phone and not paying attention to the road. This can lead to them not seeing another car or not being able to react in time to avoid a crash.
