Though driving on the road is a daily part of life for most of us, if you have been in a car accident, then you know just how dangerous driving can turn out to be.

YOU MAY BE ENTITLED TO COMPENSATION
If you were in an accident caused due to the negligent actions of another driver, you may be able to seek compensation for your injuries. For example, if you were sitting at a red light and were rear-ended, or if another driver merged into your lane without checking to see if the coast was clear, it is likely that the other driver will be at fault, and may be liable for your injuries. Even if you were partially at fault for the accident, you still might be able to seek compensation.
The amount of compensation that you might be entitled to will depend on a few factors. First, the severity of your injuries. 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.
Next, your compensation will depend on the amount of fault assigned to each party involved. New Mexico is a pure comparative negligence state, which means that fault may be assigned to each party, and the compensation you may be able to seek 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 may be reduced by 10%.

I did not know what to do. I had never been hurt in a wreck before and this was a major accident that was not my fault. I reached out to Zinda Law Group and they were fantastic, answered all my questions, got me help immediately, and took care of everything!!
There comes a time when you need someone in your corner that you can trust. Our time came when we knew we needed the advice and counsel of an attorney. The day we walked into Zinda Law Group we knew we were covered.
There is a reason why this law firm has a 5 star rating. My experience with personal injury attorney Joe Caputo and all of the staff at Zinda Law Group has been excellent... I would definitely recommend Zinda Law Group.
Maria Ciara-Former Client
This is a really great firm! They settled my personal injury case in a year. Throughout the whole process, they were keeping in touch with me and helping me get the best treatment possible. They honestly know what they are doing. It was a pleasure working with these guys.
Everyone was so professional and was very interested in helping me with my issues. They were very upfront and honest about what I could expect.
I contacted Zinda Law Group after getting nowhere on my own with a personal injury case. I am so thankful I did. They took it off my plate and handled everything from appointments, to phone calls, and emails.

HOW TO FILE A CLAIM FOR A CAR ACCIDENT
After an accident, you may be at a bit of a loss as to how to go about seeking compensation for your injuries. The following list includes some of the basic steps that anyone who has been injured in an accident should take.
1. Speak with an Attorney
Whatever your potential path to compensation ends up looking like, it should begin with speaking to an attorney. An experienced New Mexico car accident attorney may be able to advise you on the value of your case, as well as crafting an effective strategy to seek maximum compensation.
Once you have chosen an attorney to work with, they may be able to begin the process of researching and investigating the particular facts of your case. This will include things like analyzing any photo or video evidence that might be available, obtaining police reports, and speaking with any witnesses who were present at the scene.
3. Negotiate a Settlement
The vast majority of claims will settle far before they make it to the courtroom, which is why this step is extremely important. At this stage, your attorney may be able to frame your claim in the best light possible—minimizing any potential weak points while emphasizing the stronger aspects of your situation.
