High-Speed Car Accidents in New Mexico

Albuquerque, NM - Injury-Causing Collision Takes Place at Washington St & Menaul BlvdThe risk of a crash is much greater when you exceed the speed limit. Despite this fact, many New Mexico drivers continue to speed on the state’s roads and highways. Statistics show that there were 370 deadly collisions reported in the state from 2017 to 2019 involving speeding motorists. These fatalities made up nearly 35 percent of reported roadway deaths in New Mexico. Speeding increases your risk of a serious crash for many reasons. Two of the primary reason include increasing the chance of losing control of a vehicle as well as increasing the overall distance required to come to a full stop behind the wheel. 

When drivers knowingly engage in reckless behavior on the road, they are putting themselves and others at risk. This can be considered a breach of duty, and this is a key component of any personal injury claim. You have to show that the at-fault party acted in a way that a reasonable person would not have under similar circumstances. This can include speeding or distracted driving, as well as many other reckless actions on the road. If these actions contributed to your crash and your injuries, you can potentially establish liability in a negligence claim.
