New Mexico Pedestrian Accidents

Albuquerque, NM - Man Ran Over by Driver in Parking Lot on Juan Tabo BlvdIn New Mexico, you would think it is pretty safe to travel on foot. Unfortunately, statistics show that this is not quite the case. The state has the highest national rate of pedestrian fatalities in the nation, with a pedestrian fatality rate of four fatalities per 100,000 people. Pedestrians are often unsure of what to do to make a complete recovery after being injured in an accident, and we are here to help. 

Walking is a great form of exercise, good for the environment, and a great way to take in New Mexico's scenery and weather. Despite all the advantages of walking, pedestrians are most vulnerable to suffering serious injury when a crash does happen. A New Mexico pedestrian accident lawyer can help you in obtaining financial compensation for your injuries if you were injured while walking down the street or crossing a crosswalk and were hit by a car, truck, motorcycle, or van in the Land of Enchantment. 

It is an unfortunate reality that pedestrians are at a tremendous disadvantage when they are involved in a collision with a large passenger car. Car manufacturers have worked hard in recent years to create seat belts, safer airbags, and accident avoidance systems to enhance the safety features of their automobiles. A pedestrian, however, is unprotected and exposed in the event of a collision with a car or another motor vehicle. As a result, when a car and a pedestrian collide, the person traveling on foot frequently suffers much more serious injuries.
