WHAT SHOULD I DO AFTER A CAR ACCIDENT?
YOU MAY BE ENTITLED TO COMPENSATION
If you were in a car accident caused by another driver, you may be entitled to seek compensation for your injuries. For example, if you were sitting at a red light and were rear-ended, the other driver may be at fault. Of course, the amount of compensation you can receive depends on two main factors: the severity of your injuries and the fault of each person involved.
For instance, if you only suffered minor injuries that did not require any hospitalization, then the amount of compensation you seek may be less than if you suffered very severe injuries. Importantly, New Mexico is a pure comparative negligence state. This means that each party may be assigned a percentage of fault, and the compensation you pursue is reduced according to this percentage. For example, if an accident is determined to be 10% your fault, then the maximum compensation you may be able to seek could be reduced by 10%.

One of the first questions clients ask us is, “How long does it take to resolve a claim after a car accident in New Mexico?” The short answer is -- it depends. The length of time from the car accident to resolution hinges on the severity of the accident and injuries, the extent to which parties are covered by insurance, the victim’s degree of fault (if any), and further negotiations. We understand that this is a trying time for you, and we will work to resolve your case as soon as possible.

Once you’ve sought medical treatment and have hired an attorney, your car accident case has only just begun. Next, it’s important to investigate your case quickly for several reasons. For starters, it’s easy to lose evidence, such as memory of the crash or details of specific injuries. Additionally, it’s important to preserve evidence of damage and dangerous conditions that could have contributed to your car accident.
