Are you asking yourself, “Can I sue a government agency for an accident in New Mexico?” You should know that you do have that right.

Proving Fault in a Personal Injury Claim Involving the Government 

Like all personal injury claims, you will have to prove that the government was responsible for causing you harm because they were being negligent. How do you prove your case? 

First, you need to document your injuries and the accident in whatever ways you can. You can use police reports, statements from witnesses, photo and video evidence, or other types of evidence to prove that your injuries occurred because of the government’s negligence. 

For example, if you are injured in a car accident due to a government worker who was driving drunk, the government could be held liable for their employee’s actions. If you are injured because a worker didn’t clean up a spill in a government building, you could be able to sue the government. 

Investigation can bring up the evidence you need to prove a government liability claim.
