Pedestrian Crashes in New Mexico
Walking puts you at a much greater risk of suffering serious injuries in an accident than driving a car does. New Mexico had the highest per-capita rate of pedestrian fatalities in the US for 2019 and 2020. Since 2016, New Mexico has consistently had more fatal pedestrian collisions than any other state, putting the state's pedestrians at an increased risk of suffering life-threatening injuries.
As a pedestrian who has been hurt, it is critical to safeguard your legal rights. During the claims process, your attorney will represent you while the driver and his or her insurance provider will be working against you. Your pedestrian accident attorney will handle communications with an insurance company so you can focus on a complete recovery.
A lawyer experienced in dealing with pedestrian accidents will ensure that insurers do not take unfair advantage of you or settle for a meager settlement. Your attorney can represent you in court if a personal injury lawsuit is appropriate for your case.
