Pedestrian Accidents in New Mexico

Albuquerque, NM - Pedestrian Hit, Injured at Central Ave & Dallas StPedestrians do not have much protection on New Mexico roadways. In 2022, there were 40 fatal car accidents in unincorporated areas of Bernalillo County and Albuquerque. New Mexico has one of the highest pedestrian death rates in the nation, according to data from the Governors Highway Safety Association. Serious injuries sustained in a pedestrian collision may be covered by insurance, but sometimes this is not enough to cover the full extent of your damages. 

A pedestrian or their family may have grounds to file a lawsuit if they were injured in a New Mexico accident. Both pedestrians and drivers have to follow the laws of the state, and a reckless motorist who hits a pedestrian may be held liable for the victim's losses. Pedestrians almost always suffer more severe injuries in the event of a crash, and the at-fault party should be held responsible for their role in a serious accident. 

If you were a pedestrian who was hit by a reckless driver, your injuries could have been severe or even life-changing. Broken bones, back or neck injuries, damage to internal organs, spinal cord injuries, and traumatic brain injuries are common. Pedestrian injuries can be very severe and often require time and money to heal. Hiring a New Mexico pedestrian accident attorney to represent your interests will improve your prospects of obtaining a fair financial recovery from the negligent driver or a third party.
