New Mexico Car Crashes
It may not be surprising, but nearly 94 percent of all car crashes are due to human error. This can include drunk driving, texting behind the wheel, and even speeding. These behaviors can make a crash much more likely.
A majority of crashes in New Mexico happen in three cities: Albuquerque, Santa Fe, and Las Cruces. Car accidents are the leading cause of death for the state’s residents. Injured victims should consult with a qualified Albuquerque personal injury lawyer immediately after an accident.
