Pedestrian Crashes in New Mexico
Pedestrians are more likely to sustain fatal injuries in car crashes because they are more exposed to the dangers of the road. In New Mexico, pedestrians and motorists frequently share roadways across the state. Since 2016, the state has ranked first in the nation for pedestrian fatalities. Year after year, the number of people killed on foot is on the rise, and pedestrians are 1.5 times more likely to die in a car accident than passenger car occupants.
A pedestrian has little protection from the full force of a serious accident. As a result, pedestrians are frequently involved in traffic accidents that result in serious to life-threatening injuries. Those traveling on foot are vulnerable to life-altering injuries and other damages, such as medical expenses, lost wages, pain and suffering in the event of a collision. With the help of a qualified Albuquerque car accident lawyer, injured parties can sometimes recover lost compensation and hold the party responsible for the crash responsible for the accident. In some cases, this is the only way to get the full value of their claim.
