According to National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) data, about one-third of all fatal traffic crashes in New Mexico involved alcohol in 2015. Despite the fact that the total number of fatal traffic accidents decreased between 2014 and 2015, the percentage of fatal traffic crashes involving alcohol actually increased. The data is clear: drunk drivers remain a significant threat to anyone traveling on the roads in New Mexico.
If you or someone you love suffered injuries as a result of a motor vehicle crash caused by a drunk driver, you are entitled to compensation. The law firm of Will Ferguson & Associates has extensive experience handling all types of motor vehicle crash cases, including those caused by drivers who were under the influence. Contact our firm to schedule a free consultation and have one of our experienced DUI crash attorneys review your case.
Why do you need an attorney?
The undisputed truth is that personal injury victims represented by attorneys are more successful than those who choose to remain unrepresented. DUI cases, in particular, can involve a variety of legal complications that can make success difficult, if not impossible, without the aid of a skilled attorney.
Find Your Attorney Early
The age-old adage “the early bird gets the worm,” is certainly applicable when it comes to finding an attorney. Consulting with an attorney at the earliest opportunity after a DUI crash is the first, easiest, and best step you can take to make sure you get the fair and just compensation to which you are entitled.
Along with helping to ensure compliance with critical filing and notice deadlines that may be applicable to your case, finding an attorney early will allow you to begin the evidence gathering process before it is too late.
Attorney assistance can also be a vital asset when filing insurance claims or deciding to accept a settlement offer from an insurance company. Allegations of drunk or influenced driving introduce new complications to the insurance claim process. An experienced attorney will make sure that your rights are protected and that you are not unfairly taken advantage of.
