Rio Rancho Drunk Driver Accident Attorney
Were You Injured by a Drunk Driver in New Mexico?
Accidents caused by drunk drivers are all too common across the nation
as well as in the state of New Mexico. In 2009, more than 10,000 deaths
in nationwide auto accidents were associated with drivers who registered
.08 or higher in blood alcohol content. The percentage of motor vehicle
accidents caused by such drivers totaled 32 percent. Despite tough laws
on drunk driving, these accidents continue to occur, causing injuries
ranging from minor to catastrophic. Additionally, countless number of
lives are lost to drunk driving.
Drunk driving is not only a civil wrong but it is a form of criminal negligence.
Because of this, those injured in accidents by drunk drivers may have
more than one source of insurance compensation available to them.
Available damages may include economic damages such as:
- Medical expenses
- Lost wages
- Pain and suffering
