Car and Truck Accidents in New Mexico – what to expect:

If you are injured or someone you know is hurt or killed in a car accident or truck accident in New Mexico, there are specific actions you should do. 

  • If you are hurt at the scene, get in the ambulance and go to the hospital. Don’t “be a hero” and try and tough out the pain—the insurance company will say later that you weren’t hurt even though the pain from a car or truck accident can emerge days later. Play it safe and get checked out.
  • As soon as you a able to do so, take pictures of your vehicle AND the at fault drivers vehicle. You can use your cellphone to do this. If you don’t get pictures of the car or truck that is in the New Mexico accident, the insurance company will call your crash “low impact” or a “fender bender” when this is not the case. The insurance can try to pay you less.
  • Take pictures of your injuries. 
  • Get a copy of your New Mexico crash report and review it carefully. For more information on how to obtain a crash report click here: https://myaccident.org/new-mexico-accident-reports. There will be witnesses listed on the report that are important for the case. Sometimes our office finds that the information on report is wrong. Although the report isn’t admissible in a New Mexico car accident, the insurance company uses this report to determine who was at fault in the accident. If the report is inaccurate our office will need to help you take the steps to help correct it or locate and interview the witnesses soon after the accident happened. 
  • Should I give the insurance company a recorded statement? It is imperative that you seek legal advice before making any statements, including recorded statements about your personal injury in New Mexico. 
  • Call a New Mexico personal injury lawyer. It is important to research whether or not the Albuquerque car accident attorney you are calling is local. This makes a difference because only New Mexico car accident attorneys know the lay of the land. The other firms that advertise a lot on television have very little interest in our community and even less interest in getting you the results that you deserve.
