Speeding-Related Crashes in New Mexico

Albuquerque, NM - Victims Hurt After Collision at I-40 & Coors Blvd

Speeding is one of the most often reported causes of car accidents in New Mexico and around the nation. According to the National Highway Traffic and Safety Administration, drivers who go over the speed limit are responsible for nearly one-third of all fatalities on American roads. In 2019, speeding resulted in more than 9,500 fatalities and hundreds of serious injuries. The speed limits in New Mexico protect all motorists. If you have injuries as a result of a speeding driver, you may be entitled to compensation.

The majority of avoidable car accidents are brought on by other drivers’ negligent behavior.  You must establish the defendant’s liability in a lawsuit involving injuries sustained in a car accident in order to receive compensation from their insurance company. When it comes to cases involving traffic accidents, the court system in New Mexico is more traditional and fault-based. This suggests that if you do not diligently adhere to the proper legal procedure, it may be challenging to determine who is at fault for a vehicle collision. You must be able to demonstrate specific legal requirements, such as the fact that the negligent party owed you a duty of care and disregarded that responsibility, in order to succeed in a personal injury case.

It can be difficult to navigate the claims process, especially if you are still healing from a serious auto accident. You might be concerned about how you will pay your bills while you take time off to recover if a negligent motorist caused an accident that wounded you or a loved one. You need to get the money you require and be able to recover fully, so you should file a personal injury lawsuit claim against the careless driver’s insurance coverage. In New Mexico, you have three years from the accident to file a claim. You face the danger of losing your ability to obtain the payment you are entitled to for your damages if you miss that deadline.

Consult a lawyer as soon as you can if you were hurt in an auto accident to begin putting together your defense. If you were in a catastrophic accident and want to make sure that you are fairly reimbursed for your damages and that you do everything in your power to defend your claim, you need to have a lawyer on your side. You can more accurately determine your losses and the collision’s harmful effects with the help of an attorney.
