High-Speed Collisions in New Mexico

Albuquerque, NM - At Least One Person Hurt in Crash at Louisiana Blvd & Mountain RdA shocking 37 percent of deadly car accidents in New Mexico involve a speeding driver. In fact, the state has one of the highest rates of speeding-related fatalities in the country. There are an estimated 115 speeding-relating deaths for every 100 fatal collisions in the state. Tens of thousands are killed each year by speeding drivers in the United States, and recent statistics have found that speeding has been a factor in roughly one-third of reported traffic fatalities in the past thirty years. Drivers who exceed the speed limit or drive faster than permitted by roadway conditions can potentially be held liable for damages resulting from a serious car crash. 

You are likely dealing with a lot of emotions after a car accident. Victims often feel vulnerable after suffering serious injuries, and this leaves them at risk of being taken advantage of. The insurance company will likely send a claims adjuster to contact you after your accident. The adjuster will act like they are on your side and just trying to make sure you get better. However, in most cases, the adjuster is really just trying to get you to accept a subpar settlement for your damages. Insurance companies are businesses, and that means they operate on profit motives. They want you to accept the smallest settlement possible so they can save a few dollars. 

That is why you need an experienced Albuquerque car crash lawyer to represent your case. He or she will know how to negotiate with the insurer and make sure your compensation is secured. If settlement talks do not go in your favor, your lawyer should also be prepared to take your case to court. This is not common in personal injury claims, but you need to know your legal representative is capable of protecting your rights under any circumstances.
