New Mexico Car Accidents

  Albuquerque, NM - Car Accident Results in Injuries on I-40 near 4th StEvery single year in the United States, an estimated 2.5 million people are sent to the emergency room with critical injuries related to car accidents. In 2021, 35,000 people lost their lives due to fatal car crashes across the nation. These statistics highlight the extreme impact of accidents on people and their families as well as entire communities throughout the country.

Several contributing factors cause car crashes in the US. However, driver behavior is the main issue. Additionally, bad weather, poor road infrastructure, and inadequate car upkeep may also be to blame. Throughout the country, considerable efforts are being made to reduce the frequency and severity of car crashes. For example, numerous safety awareness campaigns have been created, road conditions are being improved, and drivers are taking the time and effort to be more mindful while on the road. 

Unfortunately, no matter how safe of a driver you are, you cannot predict the actions of other people on the road. Drivers who are intoxicated, distracted, overtired, or traveling at unsafe speeds place themselves and those around them at severe risk of sustaining substantial injuries, or even losing their lives.

If you or a loved one has been hurt in a car crash caused by a negligent driver, you have legal options available to you that may be able to help you recover financially. When you don’t have to worry about money, you may be able to focus better on your own physical and mental healing. Unfortunately, the costs related to a serious car crash injury are exorbitant, usually in the tens of thousands of dollars. For example, one ambulance ride normally costs about $1000. Additionally, a visit to the emergency room is even more expensive.

Depending on the severity of your injuries, your entire life may be turned upside down. The extent of the damages that resulted from your accident will determine the amount of compensation you qualify for when you file a personal injury claim with a car crash lawyer. Filing a personal injury claim is your best bet if you wish to be able to financially recover from your crash and the injuries that followed.
