New Mexico Car Crashes

Albuquerque, NM - Victims Hurt in Car Accident at I-40 & Louisiana BlvdYou are never completely safe when traveling on New Mexico roadways, and statistics show that crashes in the state are becoming more deadly with time. The state’s Department of Transportation found that deadly collisions increased by nearly 20 percent from 2020 to 2021. There were 398 deadly car accidents reported in the state in 2020, compared to 481 in 2021. The most readily available statistics from 2022 reveal that there were 347 roadway deaths reported in New Mexico that year from January to September. 

 A personal injury lawyer can help you recover after a serious car accident. You should always consult an attorney as soon as you can after being hurt by a reckless driver. A lawyer can explain your legal rights and any avenues available to you to pursue lost compensation. Your attorney can also take over negotiations with the insurance provider. The insurer may try to act like it is your friend, however, this is far from the truth. The insurance adjuster is really just trying to get you to accept the smallest settlement possible. The initial settlement offer is usually not enough to cover the full extent of your injuries and other damages, despite what the insurance company tries to tell you. 

Even if you think you only sustained minor injuries in a crash, these injuries can still have a long-term effect on your life. Rising medical bills can be very costly, and you may not be prepared to foot the bill for these unexpected expenses. Crash victims often worry about how they will do routine tasks and go about their day-to-day activities. You need someone on your side to help you recover after a serious collision.
