I Was Not Wearing my Seatbelt in a NM Big Rig Crash: Do I Still Have a Claim?

No Seatbelt in a New Mexico Big Rig Crash: Albuquerque Trucking Accident Lawyer Explains the "Seatbelt Defense"

If it is one thing about insurance companies that is nearly always true, they will try to blame the victim for the crash and the injuries. This is particularly true in a New Mexico big rig crash causing serious personal injuries. A truck driver, trucking company, and the truck's insurance carrier will attempt to blame the victim in an effort to mitigate the injuries, including claiming that the victim did not wear an available seatbelt. This argument may even seem logical and persuasive, because New Mexico law even requires all occupants to wear a seatbelt under NM Stat. 66-7-372. However, the "seatbelt defense" does not apply in New Mexico and this is why you need to speak with an Albuquerque trucking accident lawyer.
