Do I Need an Attorney for a Car Accident Case? 


No law requires hiring a personal injury attorney after a car accident. However, many car accident victims find that the process of filing an insurance claim and seeking the compensation they are due can be overwhelming when they are already suffering serious injuries. Very few people regret hiring a car accident lawyer, but many regret not hiring one.

Our Albuquerque car wreck lawyers in New Mexico can explain how a lawyer can help and guide you through the claims process. We can discuss our services more during a free case review.

What a Personal Injury Lawyer Does

To determine whether you need a lawyer after a car accident, it’s crucial that you understand what a personal injury lawyer does. Caruso Law Offices helps car accident victims by:

  • Explaining your legal rights and options – We offer a free case review to discuss how the accident happened, who is legally at fault, and your options for recovering fair compensation. You can then decide how you want to proceed with your case.
  • Conducting an investigation – Our experienced car accident lawyers understand the value of strong evidence in proving liability. We can conduct a thorough investigation into the accident, review the accident report, interview witnesses, and obtain evidence such as cell phone records, data stored electronically in the vehicle, or toxicology reports through discovery or other investigative means. This powerful evidence allows us to negotiate from a position of power.
  • Compiling evidence on damages – Car accident victims have the right to be fairly compensated for the damages they sustain because of someone else’s negligence. Our team can collect medical records, employment letters, receipts, invoices, estimates, and expert witness reports to calculate the full extent of your losses.
  • Handling your claim – Our team can handle communications with the insurance company, file your claim paperwork, and monitor the status of your claim so you can focus on your recovery.
  • Negotiating for maximum compensation – We can send a demand letter that specifies how the accident occurred, why the other driver is at fault, and the amount of compensation you agree to resolve your claim for. If the insurance company refuses to offer a fair settlement, we can discuss pursuing other options, such as filing a personal injury lawsuit against the negligent defendant.

With an experienced New Mexico car accident lawyer from Caruso Law Offices on your side, you will always know there is an advocate in your corner.

Signs You Need a Car Accident Lawyer

While you reserve the right to hire a car accident lawyer at any point, some times when it is evident you need a lawyer include:

  • You suffered a serious injury.
  • The insurance company is contesting liability.
  • Multiple parties may be at fault for the accident.
  • The insurance company has denied your claim.
  • The insurance company is attempting to lowball your claim.

You deserve to be treated fairly after someone else’s negligence harms you. Our team can demand that you are.
