Fatal Car Accidents in New Mexico
In New Mexico, a little more than 21,890 out of 62,787 traffic collisions were found to be the result of distracted driving in 2015, alone. This translates to around one-third of all New Mexico car accidents being the direct result of a negligent driver, which makes the case for injury compensation much more probable. This is especially significant following those accidents that tragically claimed the life of a loved one.
