The number of pedestrian fatalities is on the rise in New Mexico. Yet not every accident that involves a pedestrian results in death, so there are hundreds more who are left injured, sometimes permanently.

If you are the victim of a pedestrian accident, you have rights and may be entitled to compensation for your injuries and suffering. The attorneys at Roybal-Mack & Cordova, PC can help ensure you get the justice you deserve.

Pedestrian Accidents Result in Severe Injuries

Pedestrian accidents most commonly involve a pedestrian and a motor vehicle. Because a pedestrian has no protection, even low-speed impact can cause serious injuries, even permanent disability.

Some of the most common injuries pedestrians experience include:

  • Brain injuries, such as concussions and swelling
  • Spinal injuries, including permanent damage to the spinal cord
  • Bone fractures
  • Torn ligaments
  • Bruises and scrapes

In addition to physical injuries, pedestrians commonly suffer financially because of work missed for medical treatment and pain.

Why You Need a Personal Injury Attorney

In all personal injury cases, the injured party (claimant) must prove liability of the other party or parties involved in the accident. In light of recent pedestrian accident statistics in New Mexico, that can be challenging.

In a situation where you may be facing an unsympathetic judge, you need to be able to prove that a driver’s negligence or defective product caused your accident and resulted in your injuries.

The kind of critical thinking and investigation it takes to build such a case is why you need an experienced personal injury attorney on your side.
