Albuquerque Auto Accident Attorney Helps Victims Get Compensation for Their Injuries

November 15, 2019 - /PressAdvantage/ - Will Ferguson & Associates Albuquerque, a law firm in Albuquerque, New Mexico, has announced that the can help auto accident victims get compensation for their injuries. Filing a claim for compensation and winning can allow the victim to regain the financial losses suffered as a result of the car accident that was caused by the negligence of somebody else. However, a successful claim is not easy. That is why it is a good idea to enlist the services of an Albuquerque auto accident attorney.

Will Ferguson from Will Ferguson & Associates Albuquerque explains, “The principle that allows you to sue someone for an auto accident is negligence. If someone’s actions cause you to be hurt, then they can be considered legally responsible for your injuries. With help from the right car accident lawyer in Albuquerque, they can be made to compensate you in order to make things right.”

He continues, “Comparative negligence refers to the assessment of fault on both sides of a vehicle crash. Sometimes, you can be in an accident where both parties hold some blame. That doesn’t preclude you from going after the other party for the role they played in the collision. You can still sue the other party because of New Mexico's law of comparative negligence.”

Will Ferguson wants to point out that unlike in some other states, people in New Mexico can still file for an injury claim for the role the other party had in the auto accident even if they are more than 50 percent liable for the accident. For instance, a driver may be texting while driving, but the other driver ran a red light and crashed against the former. The former would be awarded damages based on the amount of fault committed by the driver who ran the red light.

When filing an injury claim for a car accident, this is usually done first with the insurance company of the at-fault party. The concept is simple in that the victim presents all the evidence to the insurance company that their policyholder was at fault, causing the injuries. If the evidence is convincing enough to the insurance company, they will provide a settlement.

Unfortunately, insurance companies will try to avoid paying out for car accidents and will do everything they can to minimize the claim’s value, or they will try to get out of the responsibility of paying the claimant altogether. They have many tactics that they can use and they have a lot of experience. That is why it is important to get the services of a car accident lawyer in Albuquerque NM.

Car accidents claims are surprisingly complex. For those who are unfamiliar with the legal system and handle the auto accident claim themselves, they will usually end up with much less compensation than they really deserve. They could receive an amount that may not even be able to offset their medical bills. This why it is essential to get the services of a law firm with decades of experience in handling such claims.

For the situation where the accident was caused by the other driver who has no insurance, the victim may end up making a claim with his or her insurance company. The result is the victim will be adverse to his or her own insurance company. An experienced auto accident attorney can help with the claim.

Car accident victims need to consider three things when determining whether they have a case. The first one is whether there were significant damages. Attorneys will not likely be interested if the damages are less than a few thousand dollars and the victim will only be seeking to get compensation for those damages. Second, if the defendant does not have resources and is not insured, it would be difficult to seek a claim. And third, there must be sufficient evidence to prove the liability of the defendant.

Dec 10, 2019

MILAN — European producers of premium specialty agricultural products like French wine, Italian Parmesan and Spanish olives are facing a U.S. tariff hike due Friday with a mix of trepidation and indignation at being dragged into a trade war they feel they have little to do with. The tariffs on $7.5 billion on a range of European goods were approved by the World Trade Organization as compensation for illegal EU subsidies to plane maker Airbus. The U.S. has some leeway in deciding what goods it puts tariffs on. So while it is taxing European aircraft goods an extra 10%, it...

WASHINGTON — Impeachment may have leapfrogged to the top of the national agenda, but members of Congress still have their day jobs as legislators, and they're returning to work this week with mixed hopes of success. It's a difficult-to-predict time when it comes to possible deals between President Donald Trump and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, who's kicked off the impeachment inquiry.

PRISTINA, Kosovo — A left-wing party leader poised to become Kosovo's next prime minister said Tuesday he isn't in any rush to restart formal talks intended to normalize relations with Serbia and won't lift the previous government's 100% tariff on Serb imports. In a general election held Sunday, Albin Kurti's Movement for Self-the Determination, or Vetevendosje, defeated center-right political groupings formed by former Kosovo Liberation Army fighters who had governed since 2007. Kosovo, a former Serbian province, declared independence in 2008, a decade after an insurrection by KLA fighters and Serbian strongman Slobodan Milosevic's bloody crackdown launched a 1998-99 war....
