New Mexico Car Accidents

Albuquerque, NM - Injury Auto Accident on I-40 near Rio Grande RiverA car crash can completely change your life in a matter of seconds. New Mexico roads have continued to become more dangerous with each passing year, and statistics show that 2021 was the deadliest year for the state on record. In 2018, a collision is reported somewhere in the state every 11 minutes on average. There were 46,786 car accidents that took place in New Mexico that year, and these crashes contributed to 19,790 injuries and 392 fatalities. The majority of these accidents are the result of reckless actions or human error in some form. 

If you suffered serious injuries in your car accident, you need to contact a personal injury lawyer right away. This is important for many reasons. Insurance companies are known for taking advantage of crash victims because most people lack experience in the claims process. The insurance provider is responsible for paying for the damages resulting from a car accident under their policy. This means that any settlement you receive comes out of the company’s pockets directly. Insurance providers are businesses and want to limit their exposure while protecting their bottom line. If you do not have a lawyer on your side, you are at risk of accepting a settlement that is not enough to cover the full extent of your damages. 

You may not really know the value of your claim at this stage of the process. When talking with the insurance adjuster, you may innocently say something that could be used against you. If you accept a settlement that is not enough to cover your damages, you are effectively giving up your ability to pursue additional compensation. This is why you should always put off talking with the insurer until you have discussed your case with a qualified personal injury lawyer. This can help you ensure that your settlement is enough to cover the full extent of your damages.
