Caring and Competent Representation Across New Mexico

A Pedestrian Accident Lawyer Serving Santa Fe and All of New Mexico

Drivers have a responsibility to watch for pedestrians and give them the right of way. Far too often, they fail to heed safe driving practices that might prevent accidents. Injuries and fatalities frequently result from collisions between vehicles and pedestrians. According to the U.S. Department of Transportation, more than 70,000 pedestrian accidents occur every year across the nation, and nearly 5,000 of those are fatal.

New Mexico has had all too many of these cases, and Ms. Youngers has fought to not only get compensation for injured pedestrians, but to also remedy dangerous road conditions and signage to prevent future pedestrians from being run down on roadways, sidewalks and crosswalks.
