High-Speed Crashes in New Mexico
Studies have found that even a slight increase in speed can drastically alter the outcome of a car accident. Speeding-related crashes often occur on highways, freeways, and other high-speed roadways. Drivers are less able to control their vehicles while traveling at high-speeds.
Injuries in high-speed crashes are much worse than typical collisions. More than 26 percent of all fatal crashes in 2017 were caused by speeding drivers. Reckless drivers such as these can be held responsible with the help of an Albuquerque personal injury lawyer.
