Fatal High-Speed Crashes

Las Cruces, NM - Fatality Reported in Collision at I-25 & University AveSpeed was a contributing factor in 370 fatal car accidents in New Mexico between 2017 and 2019, accounting for almost 35% of all fatal incidents in the state. Excessive speed increases the risk of serious injury due to longer stopping distances and a greater likelihood of losing control of the vehicle. It also reduces the effectiveness of safety equipment in and around your car. To keep yourself and other drivers safe, always drive at a safe and reasonable speed.

In New Mexico, surviving spouses, children under 18, and other close relatives have the legal right to seek compensation for the loss of a loved one through a wrongful death claim. The personal representative of the deceased person can bring a claim on behalf of the surviving children, spouse, or other family members. Many people are uncertain about their eligibility to file a claim for damages after the loss of a family member.
