Pedestrian Crashes in New Mexico
Pedestrians are more vulnerable to road hazards, putting them at greater risk of serious injury in car accidents. Pedestrians and motorists frequently cross paths on the road in New Mexico. Since 2016, the state has had the highest rate of pedestrian deaths in the country. Pedestrian fatalities are on the rise in the United States, with pedestrians 1.5 times as likely to die in a car accident as passengers in passenger cars.
A pedestrian is vulnerable to the full force of an impact in the event of a serious collision. As a result, pedestrians are frequently involved in traffic accidents resulting in serious or fatal injuries. In the event of a collision, pedestrians are vulnerable to life-altering injuries and other damages, such as medical expenses, lost wages, pain and suffering, and other losses. These collisions have previously resulted in life-altering or fatal injuries. Injured parties can sometimes recover lost compensation and hold the party responsible for the crash responsible for the resulting damages with the help of a qualified Albuquerque car accident lawyer. This may be the only way to get the full value of their claim in some cases.
