A car accident can be a life-changing event. Not only can it leave you with significant property damage because of the harm caused to your vehicle, but you may also be left with serious injuries that are painful, stressful and overwhelming. Although your physical pain may be front and center in your mind in the aftermath of a car crash, there are other damages that can significantly affect your well-being.
Financial damages, including medical expenses, rehabilitation costs and lost wages, can leave you ruined if you don't take appropriate action. Once one's insurance resources are used up, it is often difficult if not impossible to ensure that medical bills are paid. At a time when these expenses are being imposed, car accident victims like you may lose out on their expected wages. The combination of these damages can leave you struggling to not only cover medical debt, but also everyday expenses such as rent, a mortgage, utilities and groceries.
For many New Mexico residents injured in a car wreck, the only way to recover compensation is by filing a personal injury lawsuit against the driver who caused the accident. Before money can be awarded, though, liability must be imposed. The legal team at Martinez, Hart, Thompson & Sanchez are adept at building legal cases to increase the chances of holding a negligent driver accountable for the harm he or she has caused.
