Common Causes of Fender Benders in New Mexico
The term fender bender is generally defined as a relatively minor vehicle collision. Of course, even minor crashes can still require costly vehicle repairs. Beyond that, a fender bender can result in serious injuries. You cannot always tell how bad an accident is by simply glancing at the vehicle damage. In some cases, a seemingly minor fender bender can cause a person severe, long-term physical trauma. Fender benders happen for many different reasons, with some of the most common causes being:
- Running stop signs;
- Running red lights;
- Failure to yield;
- Distracted driving; and
- Intoxicated driving.
Do I Need a Car Accident Attorney for a Fender Bender?
One of the most common questions that people have after a fender bender collision is: Do I actually need to hire a car accident lawyer? The answer depends entirely on the specific circumstances at hand. Many minor fender benders can be handled without professional legal representation. As an example, if your vehicle sustained minor damage, you were not hurt in the crash, and your insurer is cooperating, you will not need to hire a lawyer. On the other hand, you should consult with an attorney if:
- You were seriously injured in the crash;
- You had to take time off from work to recover from the accident; or
- You are in a dispute with the insurance company.
During a free, no obligation initial consultation, our New Mexico auto accident lawyer will review your case and let you know if you can benefit from hiring an attorney at all. If your case can be effectively resolved without a lawyer, we will tell you.
