Pedestrian Accidents in New Mexico

Albuquerque, NM - Update: Pedestrian Seriously Hurt in Crash at Messilla St & Central AveWhen you are walking as opposed to driving a car, you are far more at risk of being seriously injured in the event of an accident. In 2019 and 2020, New Mexico has the highest per-capita rate of pedestrian fatalities in the US. Since 2016, New Mexico has continuously experienced more fatal pedestrian collisions than any other state, increasing the risk of serious injuries for pedestrians in the state. 

You are probably aware that pedestrians usually have the right of way in New Mexico. This is usually the case, but there are some exceptions. In any event, pedestrians are at heightened risk on the road. A driver may be held accountable for a collision involving a pedestrian if they ignored a red light, drove recklessly through a crosswalk, checked their phone, or did any other reckless action leading up to the incident. 

You may be entitled to financial compensation if you or a member of your family was hurt while walking on New Mexico’s roadways. Accidents involving pedestrians may cause fatalities or serious injuries. The types of injuries that may occur can vary depending on how the collision played out. Every time you sustain injuries as a result of being involved in a motor vehicle accident, it is crucial that you seek medical attention.
