Hurt in a Car Wreck? Call Our Belen Car Accident Lawyer for Help

You may not realize it when you get into your vehicle every day for personal or work reasons, but the risk of serious car accidents affects all motorists. The New Mexico Department of Transportation (NMDOT) reports that there are more than 48,000 crashes every year, at a rate of one auto collision every 11 minutes. Plus, at more than 1,100 total auto collisions annually, Valencia County falls within the Top 10 most dangerous counties in the state. Victims suffer numerous losses that affect them physically, financially, and emotionally. If this happens to you or a loved one, call our Belen Car Accident Lawyer for help.

It may come as some comfort to know that you have legal remedies if your life was turned around by a car accident. New Mexico law allows you to seek compensation from the at-fault party, though the process can be complex. Instead of putting your rights at risk, trust our team at Caruso Law Offices, P.C. Please contact our firm to set up a free consultation with a Belen car accident lawyer, and check out a helpful overview.

The causes and underlying circumstances surrounding a traffic crash may vary, but they do share a common element: Motor vehicle accidents occur because a driver was negligent. To recover monetary damages for your losses, you must prove that the collision happened because the other motorist failed to exercise reasonable care when driving. Some examples of driver negligence include:

  • Speeding;
  • Driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs;
  • Unlawful passing or turns;
  • Failure to yield right of way;
  • Texting, talking on the phone, and related cell phone use; and
  • Other forms of distracted driving, such as eating or adjusting the radio.

If you have sufficient evidence of negligence, you may qualify to obtain compensation for your medical bills, lost income, pain and suffering, and other losses.

How a Lawyer Can Help with the Legal Process

Even when you know what you need to prove, it is still critical to get help from a Belen car accident attorney. The legal process starts with filing an insurance claim, which is more complicated than filling out a few forms. Insurers will scrutinize your claim to find reasons to deny it or make a lowball counteroffer. If the company refuses to pay sufficient compensation, the next step is going to court.

To ensure you receive fair damages, Caruso Law Offices, P.C. is prepared to handle such essential tasks as:

  • Conducting an investigation and gathering evidence;
  • Completing claims forms with all documents to support your claim;
  • Negotiating a settlement agreement with the insurer;
  • Preparing paperwork to file a lawsuit in court; and
  • Handling all litigation matters, including motions, depositions, discovery, and trial.
