Car Accidents in New Mexico

Albuquerque, NM – Injury Accident Reported on I-40On average, nearly 4,000 motor vehicle accidents resulting in injuries take place in New Mexico each month. Many of these accidents are entirely preventable. Statistics show that nearly one in three fatal crashes that take place in the state of New Mexico involve speeding. People who are involved in accidents with speeding drivers are more likely to suffer severe injuries due to the force of the impact.

In addition to speeding, we see a significant number of crashes take place as a result of drivers who are impaired, changing lanes in a reckless manner, or distracted by their cell phones. Despite the laws that we have in place to protect motorists across the state of New Mexico, we continue to see innocent people suffer severe injuries due to negligent motorists sharing the road.

In New Mexico, there are several injuries that victims commonly suffer from following vehicle collisions. Some of the most common include:

  • Severe spinal cord fractures that result in paralysis.
  • Internal organ injuries that can be life-threatening if not immediately addressed.
  • Broken bones that require forecasting and surgery.
  • Traumatic brain injuries that result in overwhelming pain, suffering, and memory loss.
  • Neck and soft tissue injuries that limit the victims' range of motion.

If you have suffered an injury as a result of the vehicle accident, and another driver’s negligence played a role, you must reach out to a car accident lawyer in Albuquerque right away. You may be able to pursue legal action against the responsible driver to recover financial compensation for your losses.
