Accidents remain one of the leading causes of death and disability in America, and data compiled by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) is proof. Every year, almost 40 million people seek medical care from a physician for unintentional injuries, while more than 173,000 are killed in accidents. The losses for victims and their families are devastating, so it is reassuring to know that New Mexico law provides you with rights if you were hurt or lost a loved one.
