New Mexico Speeding-Related Crashes

Albuquerque, NM - Two Injured in Car Crash on Copper AveWhen you drive faster than the posted speed limit, you are actively endangering both yourself and other people on the road. This is due to the fact that speeding essentially increases the force of an impact and also causes more severe injuries. Speeding drivers cause tens of thousands of fatalities annually across the United States. Nearly one-third of all traffic fatalities reported nationwide in the past twenty years were caused by speeding drivers. Excessive speeds account for nearly 40% of fatal collisions in New Mexico, and drivers who engage in these kinds of careless behavior behind the wheel may be held accountable for any damages that result from a serious auto accident.

There is always a chance of being involved in a serious car accident, and when you share the road with reckless drivers, it is even more likely that you will be seriously injured. The aftermath of a car accident can be just as bad as the crash itself, and many accident victims are unprepared to pursue full and fair compensation to cover their damages. In a matter of seconds, a car accident could have changed your entire life, and our legal team believes that victims should not be held financially responsible for the reckless actions of other drivers. 

You need to make sure that you seek medical treatment immediately after a car accident. This is the recommended step even if you think you were not seriously hurt in a car accident. When you see a trusted doctor or physician, it can help establish a link between your injuries and the crash. If you do not seek medical treatment, the insurance company may use that as an excuse to lower your settlement or even deny your claim entirely. You need to work with a qualified personal injury attorney to make sure that you are able to recover the full value of your case.
