Car Accidents in New Mexico

Major accidents in New Mexico are usually the result of several varying types of negligent driving. Drivers who speed and travel while intoxicated are two of the most commonly seen types of negligence in the Land of Enchantment. In 2020, in New Mexico, approximately 25% of the car accidents reported were caused by drivers who were traveling at unsafe speeds. Crashes caused by speeding may also cause devastating or fatal injuries for drivers and passengers alike. 

Around ¼ of deaths related to car accidents were caused by drunk driving in the US in 2020. Approximately 75% of the decedents had been driving at the time of their death. Two side effects of drinking include blurred vision and impaired judgment, both of which are extremely dangerous when mixed with operating a motor vehicle. When car wrecks happen due to the actions of drivers who are distracted, they often end up severe and catastrophic.
