New Mexico Law: Stop Your Vehicle, Remain at the Scene of a Collision
Under New Mexico law, drivers are required to stop their vehicle, exchange information, and remain at the scene of an accident. The only exception to the law is if emergency medical assistance is needed. A driver who flees the scene of a crash can be charged with a crime.
Unfortunately, despite strong laws, far too many drivers fail to live up to their basic responsibilities. In fact, AAA estimates that nearly 675,000 hit and run collisions are reported in the United States each year—with New Mexico having one of the highest rates of hit & runs in the entire country.
Your Options If You Were Injured By a Hit-and-Run Driver
At the scene of a hit & run collision, you should try your best to document as much information as possible about the wreck. Take photographs of the vehicle damage and get contact information for witnesses. If you can remember any details about the other vehicle—from the make or model of their car to a partial license—write it down. A hit and run accident should be comprehensively investigated by both law enforcement officers and by your Albuquerque hit & run accident attorney.
The responsible driver may still be located. In some cases, hit & run motorists eventually come forward on their own after feeling guilty. In other cases, an investigation reveals their identity. Even if the driver cannot be located, our experienced New Mexico car accident lawyer is ready to help you explore every avenue to compensation, including considering additional defendants and bringing a claim through your own insurance policy.
You Deserve Full Financial Compensation for Your Injuries
In New Mexico, hit & run accident victims can seek compensation for the full extent of their injuries. At Caruso Law Offices, P.C, our Albuquerque car accident attorney is focused on helping clients recover every penny that they deserve. Depending on the nature of your collision, you may be eligible to get compensation for:
- Automobile repairs;
- Ambulance fees and emergency care;
- Medical expenses;
- Loss of current and future wages;
- Pain and suffering;
- Permanent impairment; and
- Wrongful death.
