Motor Vehicle Accidents

New Mexico’s drivers are among the nation’s most dangerous. According to statistics released by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, we have an unusually high incidence of driving-related deaths, speeding drivers, drunk drivers and careless drivers. A recent article in the Albuquerque Journal* states that our drivers are “second-worst” in the entire country.

Not surprisingly, our state is the site of a disproportionate number of serious accidents. And victims often find their lives dramatically changed. Their injuries may prevent them from returning to their jobs or day-to-day routines. Moreover, the recovery process entails a great deal of medical bills, which many individuals struggle to afford.
