New Mexico Speeding-Related Crashes

Albuquerque, NM - Collision with Injuries at Golf Course Rd & Irving BlvdThe rate of speed involved in a crash can have a significant impact on any resulting injuries. When you speed, you are more likely to lose control of your vehicle, and the force of impact in the event of a crash is multiplied. This means a much greater chance of suffering from life-threatening injuries. Nearly 29 percent of reported traffic fatalities nationwide involve speeding motorists, and tens of thousands are killed annually in high-speed collisions in the United States. In 2021, there were 12,330 deaths caused by speeding drivers. These accidents cost the American public tens of billions per year in damages. 

Navigating the claims process can be extremely complicated if you were involved in a serious collision. Going up against the insurance provider is no easy task, and you need to make sure that you are able to start your case on a strong footing. You may not even know the true value of your claim, and that can make negotiating with the insurance provider that much harder. You should always consult with a skilled attorney to make sure you are able to understand how much compensation you are owed. 

If you accept a low settlement offer from the insurer to only later find out you were more seriously hurt than you thought, you will be in a difficult situation. You need to go to the doctor immediately after an accident to make sure you understand the extent of your condition. If you accept a subpar offer, the insurer will use this as a reason to deny any future claims for additional compensation later on. This is one of the many reasons you should hold off on talking with the insurer before you meet with an attorney to discuss your situation.
