Car Crashes in New Mexico
Most of the auto collisions reported in Albuquerque happen due to some form of driver error/negligence. Throughout the United States, more than 90% of auto accidents that occur are the result of driver negligence. Drivers owe one another a duty of care while on the roadway, and when that duty is breached, severe injuries and even death may occur.

This is possible through injured victims filing a personal injury claim for financial compensation.
