Your New Mexico Car Accident Attorneys

Many drivers have a false sense of security behind the wheel. This can lead to careless behaviors that endanger every person sharing the road. A single careless driver can change someone’s life in an instant.

You can’t always avoid negligent motorists and the accidents they cause. However, you can take the right steps in the aftermath of an accident. Martinez, Hart, Thompson & Sanchez, P.C. is here to help Albuquerque drivers hold negligent parties accountable for the harms they caused.

Causes of Car Accidents

Car accidents happen for all types of reasons, from poor driving conditions to problems with the road. However, many car accidents are directly attributed to driver error, such as the following:

  • Texting while driving
  • Driving while drunk or intoxicated
  • Distracted driving
  • Racing and sleeping behind the wheel
  • Speeding
  • Tailgating
  • Not obeying traffic signs
  • Not slowing down in inclement weather

Serious Injuries Caused by Car Accidents

When the head, neck, and back are injured, you could be faced with an extensive recovery period. Spinal cord injuries are particularly serious, as they can limit your mobility depending on the extent of the damage. Other types of injuries can cause chronic back or neck pain. .

Head injuries can also result in effects on mental and emotional states. A person might experience problems remembering or retaining new information or develop a depressive or anxiety disorder. Some head injuries can also cause brain damage, which may impact a person’s ability to speak or move. Broken bones, burns, cuts, bruises, and nerve damage can also be caused by a car accident.
