Car accidents are some of the most common occurrences each day throughout the United States and in New Mexico, thousands occur every single year. From rear-end accidents to T-bone collisions, victims often suffer immensely and find themselves faced with costly medical bills and vehicle repairs.

New Mexico requires most accident victims to file a personal injury claim within three years of the date of the accident. This is referred to as the 'statute of limitations' and should be adhered to closely. The state is also a pure comparative negligence state, which means that you may recover compensation even if you are partially at fault for the accident.
Compensation may be awarded for any of the following:
Supporting evidence is crucial to a strong personal injury claim. Reports of your medical treatment, photos of your injuries and property damage, records of loss of wages or time away from work, and even witness accounts can all further the success of your claim. Insurance companies can be ruthless and aggressive, so the more detailed your claim, the better.
We understand the challenges you may be facing at this time. Trust our Santa Fe personal injury lawyers to handle the heavy lifting, allowing you to focus on recovery.
