Driver Behaviors that Contribute to Car Accidents
New Mexico traffic laws aim to reduce risky behavior of those behind the wheel, but drivers do not always obey the laws. Driver behaviors that increase the risk of car accidents include:
- Running a red light
- Distracted driving
- Drunk driving
- Aggressive driving
Sometimes, a driver’s age contributes to car accident risk. Elderly drivers and teen drivers are statistically more likely to be involved in auto accident.
Single- and Multiple-Vehicle Auto Accidents
Most car accidents involve one or more vehicles. Single-vehicle accidents may involve:
- Road hazards (common around construction sites)
- Pedestrians (i.e. hit and run)
Multiple-vehicle car accidents include:
- Rear end collisions
- Head on collisions
- Collisions at intersection (i.e. T-bone collision)
- Chain reaction collisions
Any type of auto accident has the potential to cause serious injury or fatality. To financially recover, you need the help of an attorney who understands personal injury and property damage laws in New Mexico as well as the nuances of insurance coverage policies and claims procedures.
