An Overview of the Right-of-Way Laws in New Mexico

One of the most common reasons why motor vehicle accidents occur in New Mexico is because a driver fails to yield the right-of-way to another party. The right-of-way is a legal concept that determines who has the right to a particular lane or position on the road. Here are three basic things you should know about the right-of-way laws in New Mexico: 

  1. Drivers should always be ready to yield to pedestrians—even when the pedestrian is behaving in an irresponsible manner.  
  2. When two cars reach an intersection at the same time, the vehicle on the right should go first. When in doubt, motorists should take an extra second and yield to the other driver. 
  3. A car entering a new lane—whether passing, merging, or turning—should always yield to vehicles that are going straight and maintaining their lane. 

How to Prove Liability for a Failure to Yield Collision 

All failure to yield accidents should be comprehensively investigated by an experienced attorney. As New Mexico is a ‘fault-based’ car accident jurisdiction, you must prove that another driver acted in a negligent manner to hold them legally liable for your accident. Many different types of evidence can be used to prove negligence in a failure to yield accident claim, including:

  • Police report;
  • Photographs of vehicle damage;
  • Roadway skidmarks;
  • Witness statements; and
  • Expert analysis. 

Recover Full Financial Compensation for Your Injuries

Following a failure to yield accident, you have a right to seek compensation for your economic and non economic losses. Unfortunately, the large insurance companies will work hard to resolve your claim for as little as possible. Do not accept less than you deserve. At Caruso Law Offices, P.C., our Albuquerque failure to yield accident lawyer knows how to help clients maximize their recovery. You may be eligible to recover financial compensation for: 

  • Emergency medical treatment;
  • Medical bills and related costs;
  • Physical therapy and psychological counseling;  
  • Lost of current and future wages;
  • Pain and suffering;
  • Disfigurement/scarring; and
  • Wrongful death damages.
