New Mexico Distracted Driving Crashes

Albuquerque, NM - At Least One Hurt in Collision at San Mateo Blvd & Cutler AveOne of the main factors contributing to car accidents in New Mexico is driver distraction. According to statistics, distracted driving is a factor in roughly 22 percent of crashes in the state. Recent studies have even confirmed that driving while distracted may be just as dangerous as driving while intoxicated. Unfortunately, drivers in New Mexico struggle with both of these issues. If a distracted or intoxicated driver left you seriously injured in a car accident, you may be eligible to file a claim for compensation by working with a trained attorney. 

Speaking with a lawyer after an auto accident is a smart decision, even if you do not think you were seriously hurt. Car accident attorneys may help you with filing the required paperwork and documents that can be used as your defense should the at-fault party decide to sue. Your attorney can also help in dealing with insurance companies that will not pay you what you are owed if you choose to pursue a claim for your damages. These are just some of the many ways having a lawyer on your side can greatly increase your chances of making a complete recovery. 

You may not know what you should do immediately after being involved in a car crash. After the accident, it is smart to call authorities to the scene. The police will report the collision, acting as an official document, and can even provide first aid and other forms of practical assistance. The police record contains both the identifying information and a description of the collision, in case you choose to file a lawsuit later on. In some cases, the law may even require that you report the crash.

If someone else's negligence resulted in you being seriously injured, you need someone on your side to fight for your legal rights. The attorneys at Will Ferguson & Associates are prepared to uphold your legal rights and guarantee that you receive the largest settlement possible for your damages. Our lawyers will do everything possible to ensure that your case is treated with the respect it deserves and that the at-fault party is brought to justice for their role in the accident.
