Car Crashes in New Mexico

Albuquerque, NM - Car Accident Ends in Injuries on 2nd St near Menaul BlvdAuto accidents happen throughout the United States constantly. Every single day, more than 17,000 vehicle collisions are reported across the country that cause injuries to over 7,500 people and take the lives of around 100 individuals. In New Mexico specifically, approximately 160 traffic accidents happen per year. The majority of these result in property damage only; however, a percentage of them do cause serious injuries and even fatalities. Hundreds of people lose their lives annually in car wrecks in the state of New Mexico, while tens of thousands sustain injuries. 

The most common reason car crashes happen in the United States and throughout the state of New Mexico is driver negligence. Though several different forms of negligent driving exist, the most commonly seen among American drivers is currently driver distraction. Each year, over 3,000 people end up losing their lives because of drivers who are distracted while operating their vehicles. 

Distraction comes in numerous forms, including cell phones, GPS systems, radios, individuals inside the vehicle, eating, grooming, and more. The truth is that no one should ever engage in any activity that has the potential to take their attention from the roadway at any given time while operating a motor vehicle. Doing so puts everyone involved at risk of sustaining injuries that could be life-threatening. 

A serious car crash can devastate you and your family, especially depending on the extent of your injuries and the effect they have had on your life. If you are stuck in the hospital with painful, debilitating injuries, and unable to return to work and earn a living for yourself and your loved ones, you may be suffering a great deal, not only physically, but emotionally and financially.
