It is hard for most New Mexico drivers to fathom making a choice that could put themselves or other drivers on the road in danger. However, this is the choice that hundreds of Americans make everyday when they choose to get behind the wheel intoxicated. A recent Albuquerque car crash brought this very scary scenario to life when a multi-car accident caused serious injuries and a fatality. The driver who caused the crash is also accused of impaired driving, among other charges.
While most drivers get behind the wheel with the best intentions, sometimes something can go wrong that causes a car crash. A recent crash in Albuquerque does not fit that description because one of the drivers is under suspicion of DUI after his involvement in the fatal car crash. Accidents caused by, or related to, drunk driving or intoxicated driving are often entirely preventable.
Sometimes, there are no words after a catastrophic auto accident leaves one seriously injured. The fact that this could even happen is often mind-boggling. When life gets turned on its head, there is only one thing to do: seek justice. Through a lawsuit, accident victims may seek justice against any person or third party that contributed to an accident that caused serious injury and the compounding issues that follow.

Many New Mexico residents who pay attention to the news may become aware of the frequency in which car accidents occur. Sometimes it can seem like every day there is a serious accident reported.

Sometimes, too, accidents involve a motor vehicle and a pedestrian, in which case the pedestrian is put in great danger.
