Pedestrian Accidents in New Mexico

Albuquerque, NM - Male Pedestrian Hit by Car on Tierra Morena PlThe number of pedestrian fatalities has been rising consistently throughout New Mexico, including Albuquerque, and the problem is only getting worse. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), pedestrian accidents in New Mexico claim the lives of about 70 people each year. The nation's highest rate of pedestrian fatalities is consistently found in New Mexico.

Pedestrians run the risk of being hit by a negligent or reckless driver every time they walk close to a road. On some highways and at some intersections, however, there are more pedestrian accidents than in other areas of Albuquerque. Serious pedestrian accidents are unfortunately commonplace in the city, and people walking on Central Avenue run a much higher chance of being involved in a collision as they pass through Nob Hill, Old Town, and close to the University of New Mexico.

Insurance claims for pedestrian injuries often cover much more serious injuries than claims for auto accidents. Pedestrians do not have access to the same basic safety features that car passengers do, such as seat belts and airbags. This is why you require legal representation that can maximize the value of your claim.
