Rear-End Crashes in New Mexico

Albuquerque, NM - Injuries in Rear-End Crash at Paseo Del Norte & Jefferson StRear-end collisions are some of the most common types of car accidents reported in the United States. Statistics show that there are more than 1.7 million rear-end crashes that take place each year nationwide. It may come as no surprise that almost 87 percent of rear-end collisions involve some degree of driver distraction, and this means that a driver is less likely to pay attention to the road and potentially hit another vehicle. An estimated 1,700 people are killed in rear-end crashes each year, and these accidents involve an estimated 7.1 percent of traffic fatalities on average. 

A car accident is often the worst moment in your life. You can never be completely ready to be involved in a serious collision, and you will likely be dealing with serious and maybe even life-threatening injuries after being hit by a reckless motorist. Many crash victims make the mistake of not seeing a doctor after a collision. Many injured parties mistakenly think that they were not seriously hurt due to the adrenaline coursing through their body. However, they may only later find out that their injuries were much worse than they initially thought. 

Seeing a doctor can help establish a direct connection to your injuries and the car accident. They can also help you determine how seriously you were injured in the crash, and this can be used to help establish a set value for your compensation claim. This way you will be less likely to accept a subpar settlement offer from the insurance provider when they contact you immediately after the crash.
