Caring and Competent Representation Across New Mexico

New Mexico Attorney for Car Accidents Involving Uninsured and Underinsured Drivers

By law, all drivers in New Mexico must carry auto insurance. Unfortunately, many people fail to keep up with this requirement. It may not become an issue until the driver is involved in an accident. By that time, however, it is too late. If the driver that hit you is uninsured, the benefits provided by insurance coverage are not available at the critical time when they are needed the most. That said, your own insurance will cover you for uninsured motorist claims unless you have rejected such coverage.

Even if they do have auto insurance, some at-fault drivers may not have enough insurance to fairly compensate you or your loved ones for injuries they caused. In those circumstances, you may have a claim for underinsured motorist benefits from your own insurance policy.

If you were involved in a motor vehicle accident with an uninsured or underinsured driver, do not panic. You should not suffer the consequences of the other driver’s failure to abide by the law. Fortunately, you will not be left with nothing, but it is important to seek legal counsel to navigate complicated insurance issues.

What Do You Do Now?

Perhaps you were just involved in an accident and you’ve learned that the other driver has no insurance or not enough insurance. They have little income and no assets. How can you obtain coverage for your medical bills, vehicle damage, lost wages, and pain and suffering?

Generally, your own insurance policy must step in to provide coverage for these losses. However, it can be difficult to get the insurance company to step forward and fulfill its obligation. Much legal wrangling is often necessary to obtain the full coverage you are entitled to. Ms. Youngers can walk you through each step of the process, including navigating any insurance claims disputes that may arise.
