The worst can happen when a car accident occurs. In 2014 alone, there were nearly thirty thousand fatal collisions in the United States. Over thirty thousand people died in those accidents. No one wants to think about being involved in a fatal car accident, but they do happen and they happen very often. If you or a loved one has been involved in a fatal car accident, or you’ve lost a family member due to a collision, Hinkle Law Offices can help.
Why Are Some Accidents Fatal?
Collisions happen every single day, and not all of them are fatal. Often a car accident is a fender bender where two vehicles bump lightly without damage. However, the lack of seat belts, speed, road conditions and more can all contribute to a fatal result. One of the most common causes of fatal car accidents in New Mexico is the failure to keep in the proper lane. And half of all fatal car accidents occur at or below 50 miles per hour. Many New Mexico roads have a speed limit of 50 miles per hour or below.
If someone isn’t wearing their seatbelt, if the car veers out of control after the collision and impacts something like a concrete divider or a telephone pole or if the people in the car are elderly or children, there’s a high possibility of a fatal result.
