How Can a Farmington Car Accident Lawyer Help You Recover After Injury?
Filing a car accident claim can be a much more difficult and involved process than many people realize. Even with our decades of training and experience in car accident law, the road to successfully obtaining the compensation you deserve is never an easy one.
Insurance companies are rarely willing to offer a full and fair settlement amount unless pressed to do so. A for-profit business like an auto insurance company has its own priorities—and those priorities do not include your accident injuries.
But as your Farmington car accident lawyer, your recovery is the thing we care about most. Serving as your legal representative, we will work hard to make sure you get what you are entitled to under the law. To help you recover, we will:
- Handle insurance company communications for you
- File your Farmington car accident claim within state deadlines
- Gather evidence needed to support your right to maximum compensation
- Calculate the full value of all losses you suffered
- Negotiate a fair settlement
- Be fully prepared to take your case to court if necessary
- Take care of legal matters so you can heal and recover in peace
What Are the Top Causes of Car Accidents in Farmington, NM?
In Farmington, NM, as in the rest of Unites States, driver error continues to be the leading cause of car accident injuries and fatalities. The vast majority of the motor vehicle collisions that happen on our roadways are entirely preventable. That’s why we, as car accident attorneys, fight persistently to get justice for people whose lives were devastated by a crash that never should have happened in the first place.
Some of the most common causes of car accidents in San Juan County include:
- Driver inattention or distracted driving
- Failure to yield right of way
- Speeding or driving too fast for conditions
- Violating traffic laws and regulations
- Running a red light or failing to stop at a stop sign
- Drunk driving
- Vehicle defects and mechanical malfunctions
- Reckless driving
- Aggressive driving
- Failure to look before merging, turning, or changing lanes
- Driving under the influence of illegal or prescription drugs (including marijuana)
What Are the Most Common Car Accident Injuries?
The severity of your crash injuries will depend on several factors—primarily, the speed of the vehicles at the time of impact, the sizes of the vehicles, the angle of collision, and whether you were wearing a seatbelt.
In our experience, people most often seek the help of car accident lawyers when they have sustained serious injuries, or catastrophic injuries that prevent them from leading the life they used to lead. But even if you suffer minor injuries in an auto crash, the healing process can be lengthy and expensive. When that cost is compounded by rental vehicle and car repair costs, time taken off work, and other factors, the bills accumulate quickly.
Here are just a few of the injuries the Farmington car accident attorneys at our law firm help victims recover compensation for:
- Cuts, lacerations, and abrasions
- Severe contusions
- Soft tissue injuries
- Emotional trauma like PTSD
- Traumatic brain injuries (TBIs)
- Broken bones
- Spinal cord injuries and paralysis
- Puncture wounds
- Internal organ damage
- Whiplash, concussions, and other head and neck injuries
