New Mexico Reckless Driving Crashes

Albuquerque, NM - Major Injury Crash on I-40 at 12th StYou can never completely avoid the risk of being involved in a car crash, and reckless drivers are common on New Mexico roadways. According to the 2018 New Mexico Traffic Crash Annual Report, almost 20.6 percent of crashes in the state involve driver distraction. The report further reveals that 5 percent of collisions involve speeding, and 14.5 percent of auto accidents are caused by drivers who fail to yield the right of way. Reckless driving can take many forms on New Mexico roadways, and injured parties need to be ready to protect their rights if they are unfairly injured by a reckless motorist. 

A serious car accident can change your life in a matter of seconds. That is all it takes for the reckless actions of another person to leave you with life-changing injuries. Crash victims are known to suffer serious injuries and rising medical bills as some of their damages. You may think that you can take on the insurance provider on your own. However, do not let the casual and friendly demeanor of the insurance adjuster fool you. The insurance company is not on your side. In the end, these companies are businesses that want to look out for their bottom line. That means getting you to accept the smallest settlement possible after a serious car accident. 

Insurance providers have more resources than you do when you pursue a personal injury claim on your own. That is why you need to enlist the help of a qualified attorney to put yourself on a more even playing field. Your lawyer will advocate for your legal rights to ensure that you are able to get the full recovery you and your loved ones need after being injured in a devastating car accident. We are here to help you every step of the way when you are recovering from the injuries suffered in your accident.
