New Mexico Car Accidents

Car accidents are a common occurrence in the United States and throughout the state of New Mexico. In 2020, over 400 people lost their lives in fatal traffic collisions in the Land of Enchantment, and tens of thousands sustained injuries. Across the country, individuals are injured at an alarming rate due to auto collisions – about 7,500 per day are hurt in crashes. The most alarming fact related to these wrecks is that the majority of them are caused by driver negligence. 

Driver negligence comes in numerous forms. Right now, the leading type of driver negligence in the United States is driver distraction, which causes over 400,000 car wrecks per year. These collisions cause over 3,000 people to lose their lives and thousands more to become injured. Other common types of driver negligence include fatigue, intoxication, and speeding. Despite the type of negligence that causes an accident, oftentimes, people sustain severe or even fatal injuries in these types of crashes. 

When you or someone you love have sustained injuries in a crash caused by a negligent driver, you may be wondering how you can recover. A car crash lawyer in Albuquerque can help you get the financial compensation you need to pay for the damages related to your accident. You may be suffering from painful injuries that require medical care that is costly and extensive. Additionally, your vehicle may need to be repaired or replaced, which isn’t cheap. 

You may also be missing time at work which can be stressful and difficult to deal with. A car accident attorney can help you file a personal injury claim for financial compensation so you can get money for medical bills, vehicle repairs, lost wages, and even non-economic damages like pain, suffering, loss of life enjoyment, and more.
