High-Speed Crashes in Albuquerque
The frustrations of modern life cause many drivers to choose to speed. This seemingly harmless action is far from safe. In fact, speeding was responsible for 26% of deadly collisions reported in 2018. That year, 9,378 people were injured in high-speed crashes across the country, an average of 25 people being killed daily. Thousands of more speeding-related crashes resulted in serious injuries that year.
In the state of New Mexico, plaintiffs injured in a vehicle collision have a right to be fully compensated for injuries resulting from the actions of a negligent party. When calculating the extent of a victim’s damages, many different factors are taken into consideration, including the suffering endured by the victim and the extent of their financial damages resulting from a New Mexico car accident.
