You should immediately contact attorneys in your home county. It may take time, but you should find someone who can take your case. However, if you have spoken to 5 or 6 law firms and no one is interested, then perhaps there really is no negligence to speak of. Most lawyers won't take a case on a contingency fee that they don't have some expectation of winning.
Sorry to hear about your injury. New Mexico has a strict tort claims notice requirement. A written claim must be filed with the proper party within 90 days of the incident. Please let us know which law enforcement agency you intend to bring the claim against, as each agency will have a different person to whom you must give notice.

You should immediately contact your insurance company. Our law firm sees quite a few types of these kinds of situations.

You've been in a wreck. You're injured. You need medical care. The doctor's office says they won't accept your health insurance, and the auto insurance company for the at-fault driver won't pay your medical bills (or maybe they won't even return your calls). What do you do?
Auto liability insurance does not work like health insurance. They are not going to pay your medical bills as you go along. The auto insurance company expects you to go out and get all the medical care you...
You need to speak with your insurance company and a personal injury attorney immediately. Make sure that you get an attorney who only handles personal injury claims. Too many attorneys try to handle too many types of cases. Stick with someone who specializes in personal injury.
You need to also find an attorney who offers you a discounted attorney fee if the attorney can settle the case without having to file a lawsuit. As an example, our firm charges a 29% fee for cases that don't...
You probably won't have to worry about state coming after you for no insurance, but you do need to worry about a civil action against you for the other person's property damage and injuries. You need to talk with an attorney now, and be extremely careful in discussing the case with the other person, their attorney or their insurance company.
