Hit-&-Run Accidents in New Mexico

Albuquerque, NM - Pedestrian Critically Hurt in Hit-&-Run at Quail Rd & Bright Star DrMany people are not aware of how frequently hit-and-run collisions take place in the United States. According to the AAA Foundation for Traffic Safety, hit-and-run accidents accounted for 11.7% of all traffic collisions in recent years, resulting in 138,500 injuries and 2,049 fatalities. Hit-and-run accidents frequently lead to serious injuries as well as great emotional and financial suffering, and injured parties should turn to an attorney for their recovery. 

Any driver involved in an accident is required to stay at the scene unless they need to be transported by EMTs to the hospital. If they fail to do so, they are in breach of their moral and legal obligations to the other parties involved. The victim may face challenges in obtaining fair compensation they need and deserve if the at-fault driver flees the scene. Even if the collision was not their fault, they might be left with no choice but to pay out of pocket for any injuries or vehicle damage.
