New Mexico Pedestrian Accidents

Albuquerque, NM - Man Hurt, Hit by Vehicle at Jefferson St & McLeod RdMany Albuquerque residents choose to travel on foot as a way to get around the city. However, pedestrians are at greater risk of sustaining serious injuries in the event of a traffic accident. In 2019 and 2020, New Mexico had the highest number of pedestrian fatalities per capita in the country. The state has also continued to top the list every single year since 2016. 

There are many potential factors that can increase the risk of a pedestrian accident. Children are some of the most likely demographics involved in a pedestrian crash. However, these types of accidents can happen to people of any age. In most circumstances, pedestrians will have the right of way on the road, but this is not always the case. You need to consult with a qualified attorney in order to determine if you have grounds to pursue a claim for compensation after being hit by a motor vehicle. 

Your lawyer will be able to help determine what caused your pedestrian accident. They can also help you better understand how much compensation you are owed for your damages. There is a strong chance that you were seriously injured if you were hit by a car, and you need to do whatever you can to make sure your case is successful.
