Maybe you were riding with a friend who isn’t the best driver. Maybe you were in an Uber that ran a red light. Maybe your bus got T-boned in an intersection. Whatever happened, being injured as a passenger is entirely outside your control, but you still have to deal with the fallout. Passenger injuries in a car crash in New Mexico can be a serious and important claim for a victim and his or her family.
At Caruso Law Offices, P.C., we understand the complexities of these situations. We will help identify which driver is responsible and determine your best chance for compensation. We can also help you find medical care. Because a passenger’s injuries are often more serious than the driver’s, you may require a significant amount to cover medical bills and lost wages. We have helped injured passengers in New Mexico for years. We can help you too.
When passengers are injured in an accident, many insurance policies come into play. This includes the insurance policies of both drivers and your own insurance as a passenger. Our attorneys will do a full investigation to determine exactly which policies apply, what their limits are and how we can get the full amount that you need to be healthy and stable.
New Mexico is a comparative negligence state, which means that both drivers in an accident can be partly responsible. If this is the case in your situation, you may be able to file a claim against both drivers’ insurance policies.
Sometimes people don’t have enough coverage to pay for the full extent of their injuries. If that is your situation, don’t worry. We have a list of physicians who we work with and who will give you an interest-free delay of payment until your settlement comes through.
To get the maximum settlement, it is important to work with a passenger injuries lawyer as soon as possible. The sooner you contact us, the sooner we can help you.
