New Mexico Pedestrian Crashes

Albuquerque, NM - Woman Hurt in Pedestrian Crash on Sunbear DrIf you walk on the street, your chances of sustaining serious injuries in a traffic accident will be much greater. Pedestrians in New Mexico were involved in 1.42 percent of all reported car crashes. Amazingly, 88.22% of these pedestrian encounters had injuries, and 11.78% of them led to fatalities. In New Mexico, nearly 1700 pedestrians suffered injuries in accidents in 2019. If you or a loved one was hurt in a pedestrian accident, contact a lawyer as soon as possible. 

Every time you travel as a pedestrian, you run the risk of being struck by careless or reckless automobiles. Nonetheless, there are more pedestrian accidents on some highways and at some crossings than in other places. Walking on Central Avenue through Nob Hill, Old Town, and close to the University of New Mexico puts pedestrians in Albuquerque at a significantly higher risk of getting into a collision.

Compared to insurance claims for car accidents, pedestrian injury claims typically include far more serious injuries. The same essential safety features that car passengers enjoy, including seat belts and airbags, are not available to pedestrians. We advise injured pedestrians to contact an Albuquerque pedestrian accident attorney as soon as possible following their collision. Even though you might not be thinking about filing a lawsuit right now, the insurance provider for the person who was at fault will take advantage of this.
