Anyone who lives or works in Albuquerque is well aware that car accidents happen daily. Unfortunately, millions of people are involved in car accidents each year and auto accidents are one of the leading causes of injury and death in New Mexico.
The experience of an auto accident is scary enough on its own, but then there’s the aftermath, which can easily add negative physical, financial and emotional impacts to the mix. A qualified Albuquerque car accident attorney can answer your questions, inform you of your legal rights, and recover fair compensation for your injuries and losses—and that’s what we do at Baskerville Law.
As a contingency-fee law firm, our clients never pay us directly, and never pay us a cent out of pocket. In fact, unless you get compensation, we don’t get paid. Our No-Fee Guarantee is just one small part of the Baskerville Law Advantage.
Car Insurance Companies & Auto Insurance Claims
After a car accident, you may find yourself inundated with calls, letters, and other correspondence from auto insurance companies. Commonly, auto insurance adjusters attempt to contact injured victims to discuss the facts of the accident very soon after the collision.
Before settling with the insurance company, we strongly advise that you speak to an experienced attorney before speaking to a representative from an insurance company. This is very important because the insurance company is looking out for the best interests of their company—not you. A personal injury lawyer who focuses on car accident cases can be your advocate against the insurance company and help to reach a settlement that is fair for you.
Here’s the bottom line:
Insurance companies are businesses that are committed to profit and they often attempt to pay out the least amount possible. Many insurance companies employ several tactics to either minimize or fully deny claim settlements.
Please, don’t allow the insurance company to convince you that they will resolve your claim for its full value without serious legal representation by a personal injury lawyer. Auto insurance companies employ their own lawyers... but who is looking out for you?
We know that insurance company representatives are not friends of injured car accident victims. Let Baskerville Law stand up to the auto insurance companies so that you can focus on healing and rebuilding. Our Albuquerque-based law firm has gone up against many auto insurance companies, defending the rights of car accident victims throughout New Mexico.
Physical & Financial Recovery After a Car Accident
A car accident can lead to chronic pain and long-term recovery from whiplash, broken bones, torn tissues, brain injuries, burn injuries, and other serious injuries.
Beyond the devastating physical and emotional harm, victims of auto accidents may be left to wonder how they are going to pay for their medical bills. Due to the severity of some injuries, those affected may not be able to work for a period of time. Lost income and high medical bills can leave anyone feeling a host of emotions.
Injured victims of auto accidents are entitled to recover financial compensation for their injuries and the associated consequences, commonly referred to as “damages”. At Baskerville Law, our top-rated personal injury lawyer can help you to pursue fair monetary compensation for damages after a car accident, including:
- Past and future medical expenses, such as emergency room care, diagnostic tests, hospitalization, surgery, physical therapy, and other reasonably related medical expenses
- Property damage/loss
- Lost wages, including loss of earning capacity
- Pain and suffering
- Loss of enjoyment of life
- Psychological and emotional harms
- Wrongful death
