One of the most unfortunate realities of driving is the possibility of being involved in or causing an auto accident. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, there were a total of 455 fatal automobile accidents in New Mexico in 2009, and car accidents took up 32.1% of that total. The victims of these accidents and their families need to seek the legal advice and representation of an experienced New Mexico personal injury attorney.
How an Attorney Can Help
In the aftermath of an auto accident, you may not be thinking clearly when police, paramedics, insurance adjusters, and fellow drivers attempt to discuss the circumstances of the accident with you. In these situations, it is best to contact an attorney before speaking with anyone else. Your lawyer can advise you of your rights as a victim, ensure your car accident injuries are taken care of, and gather the evidence, if needed, to fight for compensation.
While you focus on recovering from your car accident injuries, your New Mexico personal injury attorney can handle the filing of all necessary paperwork, investigating the circumstances of your accident, and defending your rights as a victim.
