New Mexico Traffic Collisions

Albuquerque, NM - Victims Injured in Collision on Menaul Blvd near San Mateo BlvdTraffic accidents happen in New Mexico regularly. Each year, these wrecks happen over 50,000 times on average. The number of people who sustain injuries in these collisions continues to rise. Tens of thousands of individuals suffer injuries in New Mexico car wrecks per year. Sadly, hundreds end up losing their lives in New Mexico car crashes annually. Driver negligence is the main cause of American car wrecks, causing over 92% of them each year. 

Negligence can be displayed by drivers in several different ways. Distraction, fatigue, speeding, and intoxication are the main types seen on American roadways today. For example, over 30% of the national accident fatality rate is caused by drivers who allow themselves to become intoxicated before they get behind the wheel. Intoxicated driving is dangerous in that it reduces our ability to react in a timely manner, hinders our motor skills, and impairs our judgment. Drunk/high driving often results in accidents that end in injuries or death for those involved. 

If you or a member of your family has been hurt by a negligent driver, you deserve to be able to recover without worrying about money. You may be facing several different problems in the aftermath of your crash, including financial difficulties, physical injuries that are painful and debilitating, and emotional turmoil and stress that is keeping you from living your life the way you are used to. 

A car crash attorney in Albuquerque can help you file a personal injury claim for compensation after you were injured by a negligent driver. Even if you believe that you were partially at fault for your accident, you may still be eligible for financial compensation that can help you recover.
