Car Crashes in New Mexico

Albuquerque, NM - Injuries Reported in Collision at Lead Ave & High StThe risk of a serious car accident is present almost any time you are on the road, and vehicle collisions continue to be the leading contributor to death and serious injury for New Mexico state residents. There were 36,555 car crashes reported in the state in 2020 alone. Statistics show that these collisions involved 85,742 people in all, and someone was hurt in a crash somewhere in the state every 34 minutes on average. It may be surprising to know that around 18 percent of New Mexico collisions involve drivers who flee the scene of an accident. 

You likely do not have much experience handling personal injury claims, and you probably do not know if your case even qualifies for compensation. Crash victims should always contact a trained personal injury attorney as soon as they can so they can make sure they get the right information to strengthen their claim for recovery. You need to get started right away, because you may later find that key evidence from the scene of the crash is no longer available in the days, weeks, and months that follow your accident. 

In New Mexico, there is a statute of limitations that limits how much time you have to pursue a claim for compensation after an accident. You have three years after the time of the crash to seek legal action against the at-fault party. If this timeframe lapses, you may be unable to pursue compensation entirely. Always check with a trained attorney to make sure you meet these and other key deadlines in order to protect your right to compensation.
