New Mexico Car Accidents on New Year’s Eve: Serious Personal Injuries in Negligent Accidents

New Year’s Eve is a Time for Celebration, but it can Result in Serious New Mexico Car Accidents Causing Catastrophic Personal Injuries and Even Death

As another year comes to a close, many people will visit family and friends or got out to ring in the New Year.  It is customary to have a glass of champagne to toast to the end of one year and the introduction of another.  But some people have more than just a toast of champagne and overdo it.  This puts drunk drivers on the road.  Since most people wait until after midnight to depart for home, sometimes the roads can be icy, slippery, or slick late at night.  This combination of drunk drivers and slick roads can be a recipe for serious New Mexico car accidents on New Year’s Eve.
