New Mexico Speeding-Related Accidents

Albuquerque, NM - Collision on I-25 at Ave Cesar Chavez Results in InjuriesThousands of people are hurt by speeding drivers in the United States each year, and in the past twenty years, speeding has been a factor in roughly one-third of reported traffic fatalities nationwide. New Mexico drivers are some of the worst in the country, and many are known to exceed the posted speed limit. This can greatly increase the risk of a crash for many reasons. Drivers who speed have less reaction time to avoid risks on the road, and many key safety mechanisms on motor vehicles do not work properly when a crash takes place at high rates of speed. 

You need to make sure you understand the true value of your claim when pursuing a personal injury lawsuit. The insurance provider will likely attempt to offer you an initial settlement that is much lower than what you really need. If you do not know the value of your case, it may seem like a good deal. However, our lawyers know that insurance companies are looking out for their bottom line, and that means they will try to offer you the least amount of money possible in your case. Only a trained personal injury lawyer can accurately determine how much your case is worth so that you are not left shortchanged after a serious car accident. 

You need to make sure you get to work as soon as possible after being hurt by a reckless driver. If you wait too long, you may not be able to pursue a claim at all. There is a statute of limitations in place in New Mexico that determines how long you have to file a claim. You essentially have three years after the date of the accident to initiate your case. If this deadline passes, you could be barred from getting any compensation for your injuries. You need to get to work with a trusted lawyer right away to make sure you do not unknowingly give up your ability to pursue a lawsuit.
