New Mexico Distracted Driving Crashes

Albuquerque, NM - Car Accident with Injuries at Oak St & Lomas BlvdDriver distraction has become a serious issue across the country, and the percentage of fatal accidents involving a distracted driver in New Mexico is 40.75 percent. This figure is more than five times higher than the United States average of 8.12%. According to a recent study, New Mexico has the nation's highest number of fatal crashes involving distracted drivers. 

A settlement is an agreement between the party that caused the accident or their insurance provider and the injured party, and it provides compensation for the injured person or the surviving family members of a person who died in an accident that they did not cause. A settlement can happen at any time, either before or during a trial. While negotiations are underway, one party could demand payment from the other. Settlements are typically preferable to going to court and can work in the favor of both parties. If you cannot reach an agreement, your case may have to go to court. 

The time frame for filing a lawsuit following a car accident varies by state. This time period is commonly referred to as the statute of limitations. In New Mexico, the injured party has a maximum of two years after the time of a car accident to file a lawsuit and appear in court. You need to make sure you do not miss the statute of limitations, or you could be completely barred from pursuing a claim entirely.
