Multi-vehicle accidents have the potential to cause devastating amounts of damage and pain. Often, they also have the potential to confuse liability. If you have suffered injuries in a multi-vehicle accident, you may need the experienced personal injury team at Roybal-Mack & Cordova, PC to help you get the compensation you deserve for full financial recovery.
New Mexico law allows parties who have suffered physically, mentally and emotionally to seek financial compensation and restitution for their injuries from the at-fault party or parties. However, in order to be awarded that compensation, the injured person (or their survivors in a wrongful death suit) must prove liability. In multi-vehicle accidents, liability can be tricky.
Often when law enforcement responding to an accident see that an accident involved more than one vehicle, especially if both vehicles were moving at the time of impact, they conclude that parties shared liability. Any claim for damages resulting from the multi-vehicle accident are reduced by the extent to that you were found liable for the accident.
It may take a certified accident investigator to properly determine that you were not at-fault for the multi-vehicle accident. Sometimes, it may require legal action to get an accident reconstruction expert involved.
The process to get an accident reconstruction expert involved is not well-known. And not every attorney has the skill required to interpret the expert’s report and translate that into an effective case for your personal injury claim.

We make sure that your recovery includes the easily calculable damages, like medical expenses and lost wages, but also intangible damages, including pain and suffering and temporary or permanent loss of capabilities resulting from your injuries.
New Mexico has a statute of limitations for filing a personal injury claim. But, if you are pursuing compensation for a multi-vehicle accident, you may need to act faster.
