New Mexico Car Accidents

Albuquerque, NM - Vehicle Accident Ends in Injuries on 2nd St near Lead AveNew Mexico car accidents happen tens of thousands of times per year. In one recent year, 60,000 auto collisions were reported throughout the Land of Enchantment. About 20,000 people suffered injuries in these accidents and hundreds ended up losing their lives. Perhaps the most alarming fact related to these collisions is that the majority of them are caused by drivers who are intoxicated, speeding, or distracted.

Throughout the United States, auto accidents are the leading cause of death. Most often, these crashes happen because of negligent driving, as previously mentioned. When we consider these facts, it is obvious that negligent driving is the cause of the majority of injuries and deaths in the United States. About 3 million people are hurt in car crashes across the nation per year, and over 40,000 lose their lives. Overall, around 6 million accidents occur per year in the US. The National Highway Traffic Safety Association found that each year, the number of auto collisions reported throughout the country increases by around 11%. This upward trend is problematic and needs to be nationally addressed in order for fewer people to suffer injuries or the loss of loved ones in auto collisions.

Recently, the National Highway Traffic Safety Association found that the majority of American car accidents, approximately 93%, are caused by the actions of negligent drivers. When we consider that car accidents are the leading cause of death among American people, we find that driver negligence is actually behind the majority of the deaths in the nation.
