High-Speed Collisions in Bernalillo County
Drivers who speed are much more likely to be involved in a serious collision. Speed limits are intended to make the roads safer for everyone, but when drivers exceed the posted speed limit, they are more likely to lose control of their vehicles. The distance needed to come to a complete stop is increased at high speeds, and the safety features of many vehicles are less effective during high-speed impacts. Each year, speeding is responsible for a significant portion of roadway fatalities each year. More than a quarter of deadly collisions reported in 2018 involved speeding drivers.
In the state of New Mexico, plaintiffs injured in a vehicle collision have a right to be fully compensated for injuries resulting from the actions of a negligent party. When calculating the extent of a victim’s damages, many different factors are taken into consideration, including the suffering endured by the victim and the extent of their financial damages resulting from a New Mexico car accident. Considering all these factors can be overwhelming for those trying their best to recover after a car accident.
