New Mexico Auto Accidents

Albuquerque, NM - Car Wreck on 8th St Results in Serious InjuriesYou are never completely safe when you are riding in a motor vehicle or even while traveling along the road. Recent statistics have found that 2021 was the deadliest year ever recorded on New Mexico roadways. There were 470 traffic fatalities reported in the state that year. This is a significant increase from 425 deaths in 2019. 

When you are injured by the actions of a reckless driver, the moments that immediately follow can seem like a whirlwind. You will likely be in a daze as you try to understand what just happened. Many crash victims do not immediately think they were seriously injured. This is largely due to the adrenaline coursing through your body. This can lead them to not seek medical treatment, but this is always a mistake. It is always recommended that you go to a doctor to get checked out immediately after being involved in a crash. Certain serious conditions may only become apparent after a lot of time has passed. 

You do not want to let too much time pass after your crash. If you wait too long to file a claim, you are at risk of letting the statute of limitations lapse. In New Mexico, you have three years after the date of your accident to pursue legal action against the at-fault party. If you miss this deadline, you may be unable to seek any compensation for your damages. While there are certain conditions that may change this, in most cases, you only have the set time period of three years. You should always consult an attorney in order to prevent missing this and other key deadlines.
