Car Crashes in Albuquerque

Approximately 30% of all fatalities related to auto collisions in 2020 happened due to the actions of speeding drivers. Approximately 11,250 people were killed that year due to speeding. This is equivalent to about 30 people who lost their lives per day in 2020. Injury collisions take place more frequently when drivers choose to travel at unsafe speeds. 

Serious car wrecks happen most often due to the actions of distracted, intoxicated, speeding, or over-tired drivers. Drivers who are not paying close attention to the road and their immediate surroundings are more likely to end up hitting a pedestrian who is attempting to cross the road or who is walking along the sidewalk. When you lose a loved one in a pedestrian crash caused by a negligent driver, it is necessary to take legal action so you can recover compensation. 

You can collect financial compensation for the costs related to funeral care, burial costs, medical care costs, lost wages, pain, suffering, loss of life enjoyment, loss of consortium, and more. Many different damages, both economic and non-economic, may result from losing a loved one in a car wreck caused by a negligent driver. Not only do you deserve to be compensated for your loss, but the negligent party needs to be held accountable for their actions so they are less likely to hurt another person in the future and so you get the justice you deserve. 

Following an auto accident, a car crash lawyer can help you get your life back on track. Contacting an attorney as soon as you can is a good idea. The statute of limitations for car crashes in New Mexico is three years, meaning you have three years from the day your accident occurred to file a personal injury claim with a lawyer. You may be eligible for compensation for things like medical care, wage loss, and more. After a car accident, a car crash lawyer can help you recover.
