At Ring Jimenez we know all the laws in New Mexico that deal with car accidents. We will let you know what your rights are and when the deadlines are. The other important thing to remember in car accident cases is to seek medical treatment. Any gaps in medical treatment for your injuries sustained in the accident can jeopardize the validity of your case. If you feel like anything might be wrong after your accident be sure to get it checked out. Your medical records are the best evidence of the injuries you have from the accident.
In New Mexico a car accident victim is entitled to compensation for injuries sustained in the accident, and New Mexico law requires individuals to carry liability insurance on all vehicles registered in the state. Most automobile policies have separate property damage and injury portions of the policy, which means you can get your car fixed well before you complete treatment for your injuries. Even if the other party is not covered by insurance, you may still have an avenue to recover. At Ring Jimenez we are experienced with dealing with every aspect of car accident litigation. We will work diligently to get your car fixed quickly and get you the full compensation that you deserve.
