New Mexico Distracted Driving Crashes

Albuquerque, NM - Injury-Causing Car Accident at 2nd St & Menaul BlvdYou do not have to be constantly watching the news to know that driver distraction is a rapidly growing problem in New Mexico. Statistics show that driver distraction caused a crash somewhere in the state every 56 minutes on average in 2017. In fact, it is the leading cause of crashes in the state, contributing to an estimated 20 percent of reported collisions annually, followed by failure to yield and following another vehicle too closely. There were 9,386 collisions reported in the state involving a distracted driver in 2017, with another 2,190 crashes being caused by intoxicated motorists. 

You can never completely control the actions of other drivers. If we could, there would probably be much fewer collisions reported in the state each year. Sadly, we live in a world where many people choose to engage in reckless behaviors behind the wheel. You do not have to be held financially responsible for a crash if you were just an innocent victim. That means negligent motorists can be potentially made liable for their financial expenses resulting from a car accident. 

The risk of a crash is present any time you are on the road, and serious car accidents can take place when you least expect them. There are many potential factors that can impact your ability to pursue compensation. One of the most important is negligence and liability. You will need to show that the other driver directly contributed to your injuries in some way. That could seem like a nearly impossible task on your own. Luckily, a trained attorney can help you navigate the legal process and maximize your final compensation.
