Just about anything can happen on a New Mexico roadway! We have seen and heard it all. Our firm has handled hundreds of cases involving automobile, truck, bus, motorcycle and bicycle accidents. We have private investigators and accident reconstruction experts available to assist us in determining what happened and who was at fault in the accident. Our experience and network of experts permit us to aggressively represent you once we have determined that you have a case.
What to do if you are involved in an automobile accident:
Seek medical attention if you have been injured even if days have passed since the accident.
Report the accident to police. If the police were at your accident site and made a report, obtain a copy of the report.
Make a record of the accident by taking photographs of the accident site, photographs of the vehicle involved and even photographs of your injuries. While this may seem a bit awkward at the time you are doing it, you will not regret it months or even years later when your case comes to trial and you have good evidence documenting what happened in your accident.
If you think you need an attorney, seek one out sooner rather than later. You should know that for serious accidents, immediately after an accident, insurance companies send out investigators, accident reconstruction experts and other professionals to start to defend the case you will bring against their insured driver. By the time you get out of the hospital or bury your loved one, the insurance company has already spent considerable time and money preparing its case. The sooner you have your claim evaluated to determine whether you have a case, the sooner you can get to work on building your lawsuit against the other driver.
Let us put our fifty-plus years of experience to work for you. If you have been injured or someone you love has been killed in an automobile accident, contact us for a consultation at (505) 242 - 6300 or e-mail us at firstname.lastname@example.org..
Consultations with our law firm are free and we take cases on a contingency fee basis. This means that we collect an attorney fee only if you recover a settlement or judgment in your lawsuit.
