Car Accidents in New Mexico

Albuquerque, NM - Serious Car Wreck on NM 528 near Ellison RdMajor accidents in New Mexico are usually the result of several different types of driver negligence. Drivers who travel while speeding and intoxicated are two of the most common types of negligent drivers seen across the nation. In 2020, in New Mexico, about 25% of reported traffic collisions were caused by drivers who travel at unsafe speeds. Crashes caused by speeding may also result in debilitating or even deadly injuries. Additionally, driver negligence/error is the main reason car wrecks happen in New Mexico.

Driver intoxication is one of the most dangerous types of negligent driving. About 25% of car crash fatalities in the United States were caused by drunk drivers in 2020. Approximately 75% of the deceased victims had been driving drunk at the time of their passing. Two side effects that occur when we drink, including blurred vision and impaired judgment, are extremely dangerous when mixed with driving. When car accidents are caused by intoxicated drivers, they are usually more severe and catastrophic. 

If you or someone you love were hurt in an accident caused by intoxication, speeding, or another form of driver negligence, you may qualify for financial compensation.
