Mark Caruso is originally from the Los Angeles area where he attended undergraduate and law school at Pepperdine University. He is a licensed attorney in both New Mexico and California. Mark represented insurance companies until he grew tired of helping them cheat people involved in car accidents. He changed to start helping these same people in accidents.
In 1986 he moved to New Mexico and met his wife Judy Velarde and was married. Together they opened Caruso Law Offices in 1987. Mark served in the New Mexico Legislature from 1991 to 1995 and has been named by Republican and Democrat Governors to various Boards and Commissions.
Mark Caruso has received numerous awards and commendations for his work in vehicle accidents and personal injury. He is a member of state and national trial associations and the ATAA (Academy of Truck Accident Attorneys).
While the law firm continues to represent exclusively victims from car and truck accidents, Mark has become extremely focused on larger tractor-trailer and semi-truck collisions. Over the past few years he has had two jury trials in U. S. District Court in New Mexico with jury verdicts of $5.5 million and $7.8 million. Mark is often consulted by other attorneys on the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Regulations (FMCSR) and the application of these federal trucking regulations to New Mexico commercial motor vehicle crashes. In-state and out-of-state attorneys routinely refer their tractor-trailer and 18-wheeler cases to Mark Caruso.

Pamela, M. Albuquerque
“I want to thank Caruso Law for helping to resolve our hit and run case. The driver’s insurance refused to even cover the cost of damage to our car. Once we went to Caruso they paid for the car. Caruso referred both myself and my injured fiancé to 1st Health where we both received medical care for back and neck injuries. They made the process simple, painless and no money came out of our pockets. To the people at Caruso, thanks for your help and service.”

Do Not Speak To The Insurance Companies Before You Speak To Us
The best answer after a car accident is to have absolutely no dealings with the insurance company or companies representing the person you are claiming damages from. Let us handle this for you. We know exactly what we’re doing and assure you that if your case is sound, you will always get back significantly more using our services than if you went alone.
Get Proper Medical Care
The first priority is to make sure that you get good medical treatment. You may find that you are taken to hospital immediately if your injuries are severe. It is important that you get your doctors and anybody else who treats you to give you copies of the medical records so that these can be used to document the extent of your personal injuries later on when the claim is being processed.
Steps To Take After An Accident
Collect evidence at the scene of the accident as soon as possible, if you are physically able to safely do so. Do not delay medical treatment to gather evidence. Things to consider, if you are able, include gathering contact information from any witnesses at the scene. You may use your cellphone to take pictures of the scene. If you have passengers, make sure to check their well-being before taking any other action. Cooperate with law enforcement, but do not admit fault for the accident.
Please fill out this form and send it and we will quickly reach back out to you with answers.
