New Mexico Auto Accidents
Car crashes in the United States and New Mexico happen all the time. Though driving or riding in a vehicle is probably something you do on a daily basis, it is also one of the most dangerous things you do. Car wrecks cause injuries to over 3 million people per year in the United States every year. There are a reported 6 million car crashes that happen in the US annually.
In New Mexico, we have around 60,000 vehicle accidents per year. These accidents lead to injuries for more than 20,000 people. Some of the different types of injuries that can result from a car accident include whiplash, broken bones, disfigurement, etc. These injuries can be debilitating and difficult to fully recover from without extensive medical care that can cost a fortune.
A car crash attorney in Albuquerque will help you if you or someone you love have been hurt in a wreck caused by negligence. A lawyer will know how to get you the maximum compensation available for your injuries and losses. New Mexico law says that when a negligent driver causes a car crash that ends in injuries, the injured victims deserve financial compensation for their injuries and losses.
Different types of negligence exist, including distraction, fatigue, and intoxication. Speeding and disobeying traffic rules/regulations are also dangerous forms of driver negligence. When a crash is caused by a negligent driver, the injuries that result from the accident are often much more severe than those suffered in another type of crash. This is due to the reckless and careless nature that negligent drivers use when they drive.
