New Mexico Pedestrians typically experience more severe and catastrophic injuries when involved in accidents simply because they have almost no protection against physical trauma from the force of the impact. To make matters worse, many pedestrians have the unpleasant experience of the New Mexico insurance company blaming them for their own injuries. In fact, due to the severity of these injuries, it is common practice for New Mexico insurance carriers to aggressively defend these claims in an attempt to minimize their payouts on these injuries. In other words, the more they can apportion some of the blame for the accident to the pedestrian, the less they will ultimately have to pay for that person’s injuries.
New Mexico had the highest rate of pedestrian deaths in the United States in 2014, according to a new federal report. New Mexico suffered 74 pedestrian deaths in 2014, a rate of 3.55 per 100,000 residents, according to a report issued by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. That was more than twice the U.S. rate of 1.53 per 100,000.
State data shows 57 percent of New Mexico pedestrians killed – 42 of 74 – died in alcohol-related crashes in which either the driver or the pedestrian was intoxicated.
