Pedestrian Accidents in New Mexico
Pedestrians are more likely to die in car accidents as they are more exposed to the threats of the road. In New Mexico, pedestrians and motorists often travel side-by-side on the roadway. Since 2016, the state has had the nation's highest rate of pedestrian fatalities. The number of people killed in pedestrian crashes is increasing nationwide, and pedestrians are 1.5 times more likely to die in a car accident than passengers in passenger cars.
In the event of a serious collision, a pedestrian is vulnerable to the full force of the impact. Pedestrians are therefore frequently involved in traffic accidents that result in serious or fatal injuries. Pedestrians are vulnerable to life-altering injuries and other damages, such as medical expenses, lost wages, and 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 at-fault party responsible for the accident. In some cases, this may be the only way to get the full value of their claim.
