Find Your Attorney Early
In New Mexico, victims of bus crashes must start any related personal injury lawsuit within three years of the date of the crash. This long statute of limitations is no excuse to delay, however. In addition to the statute of limitations, other laws may impose requirements that can serve as a barrier to recovery if not complied with. For example, bus accidents are particularly likely to involve government actors, like municipalities, that may require a notice of claim be filed within a very short time period after a bus crash in order for any lawsuit to proceed. Speaking to an attorney early can help make sure you don’t miss any deadlines before it is too late.
In addition, experienced attorneys know to take certain actions, like gathering and preserving evidence that you might not have thought of, so it is important to speak with an attorney before making any irrevocable mistakes.
