Pedestrian Accidents Attorney in Albuquerque and Santa Fe
We’ll help you get back on your feet in New Mexico
Some of the most dangerous car accidents in New Mexico involve cars striking a pedestrian, jogger, skater or biker. Without a vehicle to absorb the force of the impact, people often suffer broken bones, internal bleeding and other injuries. Even though these accidents usually happen at low speeds, they often result in serious injury or even death. A New Mexico pedestrian accident attorney can help you recover financial compensation.
The problem is getting even worse in Albuquerque and throughout New Mexico, where the number of pedestrian fatalities has consistently climbed . Over 70 people die each year in pedestrian accidents in New Mexico, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA).
Such startling numbers explain why New Mexico consistently ranks among the top 10 most dangerous states for pedestrians nationwide. And many years, including several recent ones, New Mexico had the highest pedestrian fatality rate per capita of any state in the country, according to the Governors Highway Safety Association.
People using a crosswalk or walking along the side of the road have the right to walk safely.

While it’s exceptionally rare for a pedestrian to be found at fault for an accident, that doesn’t mean collecting from insurance companies is easy. Insurance companies may argue that your injuries were due to a pre-existing condition rather than a direct result of your accident. They may try to settle your claim for a “lowball” figure before you’re sure of the true cost of the accident. They may make unreasonable delays or deny your claim for unclear reasons.

If needed, we consult with accident reconstruction experts and other specialists. We know how to build a strong case that proves you were the victim of negligence.
When insurance companies see that attorney Szantho is prepared and ready to take them to court, they often agree to talk about a settlement.
