If you have been injured in a New Mexico auto accident, one of the first questions you may ask is how can you pay for medical bills and lost times from work. Indeed, not only will your medical expenses pile up quickly, but you will be out of work and possibly earning less money. This combination of higher expenses with less income can cause additional financial stresses and burdens on an individual involved in an auto accident.
