Reasons to Contact an Attorney After a New Mexico Car Accident

After a car accident, many people may feel too embarrassed to contact an attorney.  They may feel that they are not injured enough to speak with a lawyer.  Or they may feel the car accident was partially their fault.  But by not contacting an experienced car accident attorney after a car accident, you may be losing rights that you may have to compensation for your injuries, medical bills, property damage, lost wages, and lost earnings.

When in doubt, always contact an attorney to discuss your case.  Here at the Mark Caruso, our compassionate New Mexico car accident attorneys have handled many cases of varying severity and varying fault.  We treat every client with the respect and dignity they deserve because we are here to help protect the rights of those injured in motor vehicle accidents.  We will listen to the facts of your case and advise you of your rights and how to proceed.  If you are unsure whether you have a case, call us today for a FREE case evaluation by dialing (505) 308-1556.

When To Contact and Attorney After a New Mexico Car Accident

Generally, every car accident in which you sustain personal injuries should be investigated by an attorney.  This includes even minor injuries, such as a broken finger or toe, backache, or scars.  However, there are some guidelines when to contact an attorney such as the following:

  • Types of Injuries– if you have broken bones, damaged organs, or require surgeries, you should always contact a car accident attorney.  These are some of the more severe injuries that can be sustained in a car accident and will almost always result in compensation.
  • High Medical Bills – another good gauge of when to contact an attorney is when you have accumulated high medical bills.  If you find that you are spending a large percentage of your income on medical bills, or if you find you cannot pay for all of the medical bills as they occur, you should contact an attorney to determine whether someone else is legally responsible for your bills.
  • Recovery time – the longer the time it takes you to recover from your injuries, the more likely you should consult with a car accident attorney.  This is because the longer period of time to recovery means you likely have a more severe injury than you may believe and you may be accumulating high medical bills.
  • Time out of Work – if you have been unable to go to work for an extended period of time due to your injuries from a car accident, you should consult with an attorney to determine whether you can receive compensation for your lost wages.
