Pedestrian Crashes in New Mexico

Albuquerque, NM - Woman Hit by Car at Lomas & Chelwood Park BlvdAccording to the New Mexico Department of Transportation, between 450 and 575 pedestrians are struck by cars and trucks per year in New Mexico. This is more than one fatality every day. In these accidents, pedestrians make up more than 90% of those who are hurt or killed.

It is possible for pedestrians to put themselves in harm's way by attempting to cross a busy roadway. We should be able to cross safely if we cross with the light, in crosswalks, and so on, just as we were taught when we were young. Walking along the side of a street or highway in Albuquerque or any other city in New Mexico shouldn't put a pedestrian in any kind of danger.

In the event that a car or truck driver strikes a pedestrian and injures them, the pedestrian or the pedestrian's family may seek compensation for their injuries under New Mexico's personal injury legislation. The law places obligations on motorists as well as pedestrians, and a driver who is found to be at fault in an accident involving a pedestrian can be held accountable for the damages that were caused to the injured party.

Following a pedestrian accident, the lawyers at Will Ferguson & Associates will assist you in defending your legal right to compensation. Our accident lawyers won't give up until the offender is made to answer for their actions. After a bike accident, you can avoid a large insurance company taking advantage of you by hiring a knowledgeable attorney.
