Reckless Driving Accidents in New Mexico

Albuquerque, NM - Injury-Causing Collision Reported on Trumbull AveYou can never completely control the actions of another driver, and New Mexico motorists have been found to be some of the worst in the country. Driver distraction was the main contributor to car crashes in the state in 2018. That year, around 21.5 percent of injury collisions, 20.3 percent of property damage accidents, and 8.3 percent of fatal crashes involved some form of driver distraction. 

When you accept a settlement from the insurance provider, you are giving up your right to pursue further compensation in a personal injury claim. A settlement can be reached at any time during your case, including before or during a court trial. In most cases, a settlement is better for everyone involved. It saves the need to spend money to battle your case out in court. The insurance provider knows this. If you push back against an unfair settlement with the help of a lawyer, there is a chance you can obtain compensation that is more in line with your needs. However, if a settlement cannot be reached by the parties involved, the case will continue to trial. 

Every state has a statute of limitations that determines how long you have to pursue a claim after a car crash. In New Mexico, that timeframe is set at three years. Insurance policies also have their own timeframes that must be adhered to. These deadlines can become confusing very quickly, and you need to make sure that your case is being managed by an experienced Albuquerque car crash lawyer who knows how to prioritize your health and well-being. 

You should never go up against a large insurance provider on your own. You may think that you have everything needed to handle your case alone, but this is usually not the case. You need to make sure you have a trained attorney working hard to protect your legal rights.
