New Mexico Distracted Driving Accidents

Albuquerque, NM - At Least One Injured After Collision at San Mateo Ln & McLeod RdA significant percentage of fatal automobile collisions in the United States are caused by distracted driving. A total of 3,142 people lost their lives in crashes involving distracted driving in 2020. An estimated 8% of fatal crashes, 14% of injury crashes, and 13% of all motor vehicle traffic crashes reported by police in 2020 were caused by distracted driving.

After a serious injury accident, the at-fault party's insurance company will probably get in touch with you right away. If they do, you should politely avoid speaking with them until you have legal counsel. The insurance provider will try to pay you the least amount of money possible, or even nothing at all. The insurer may record your conversation and use anything you say against your case. Your statements could be taken out of context and distorted to make it seem like you were at fault. 

Another common strategy used by insurers is to offer a lump-sum settlement to quickly resolve your case. This sum may seem to be enough to cover your damages and make you whole again, but the initial settlement offer is probably a lowball offer that falls far short of what you are actually entitled to. Only an attorney can help you determine if the settlement is fair and will fully cover any damages resulting from your accident.
