Albuquerque Truck Accident FAQ
Questions are common when a person is contemplating filing an injury claim in Albuquerque. An ABQ tractor-trailer attorney at Will Ferguson & Associates is happy to answer yours during a free case assessment. Meanwhile, here are some general questions and answers to help get you started.
Will I have to go to court to receive compensation for my ABQ truck crash?
In most cases you will not need to attend court to win the fair compensation you’re after. Your truck accident lawyer can work with the at-fault party’s insurer to see that they pay you a full settlement. Should they fail to offer full compensation, only then would your attorney need to take them to court.
Can more than one party be liable for the semi-truck crash that injured me?
Yes, more than one party could be held financially responsible for your crash-related injuries and losses. For instance, the trucking company might be found partially responsible for the crash that injured you, in addition the trucker.
What types of damages can I receive if I win my ABQ big rig claim?
You can receive payment for financial and nonfinancial damages if you win your case. You can be paid for your pain, mental trauma, emotional suffering, lost wages, medical care costs, lost life enjoyment, property damage, and more.
How long do I have to file a trucking collision claim in New Mexico?
In New Mexico, the law allows you to file a case against a negligent party up to three years following your accident. It’s best not to wait too long to file your claim, as important evidence needed to win your case can be lost over time.
Should I talk to the at-fault party’s insurance company?
It’s usually best to let your attorney negotiate with the insurance company on your behalf. They might record your phone conversations to use against you later. Insurers have been known to try to take advantage of truck crash victims, and your ABQ attorney can see that your rights are protected.
