    Hopefully you only have property damage and no personal injuries. Then you should just file a lawsuit in small claims court and let a judge decide against the insurance company. It appears like you have all the evidence you need to prove the judge that you have a valid claim.

    So often I am asked this question..."What medical expenses can I get from the insurance company now that we know the collision wasn't my fault?" This is really an easy question to answer, because state law dictates what you are entitled to. However, just because you might be claiming a medical expense doesn't mean that you automatically get the money for those medical expenses. It is still up to you and your attorney to provide the insurance company with the facts and evidence to prove the...

    You need to review the court's notice of class action and determine the deadlines to oppose the approval of the settlement agreement. You may still have time to object. Most judges will limit the amount of attorneys fees to a certain percentage. The amount claimed by the attorneys for their fees and costs may be reasonable given the amount of time taken to get a settlement.

    FIRST, report to your insurance company immediately. SECOND, go to the police department and do a supplemental report to clarify what really happened. This is extremely important. THIRD, determine whether you want to hire your own attorney to bring your own claim for your property damage and your injuries. Good Luck!

    Did you have uninsured motorist coverage on your vehicle that was damaged in the collision? NM law requires your own insurance company to give you uninsured motorist unless you waive the coverage in writing and are specifically told the actual cost of the uninsured motorist coverage you are rejecting. Most insurance companies don't mention that you even have the right to waive uninsured motorist coverage, but you many not know that you have it. Other insurance companies selling insurance in...

    As a New Mexico personal injury and medical malpractice attorney, I need to urgently notify you that the statute of limitations in our state of New Mexico is 3 years from the date of discovery of the malpractice. Sometimes it is not reasonably possible for a person to discover the cause of an injury, or even to know that an injury has occurred, until considerably after the act which causes the injury. When it applies, the "discovery rule" permits a suit to be filed within three years after the...

    The warrant is not going to magically go away, so he should contact a local Albuquerque criminal defense attorney and prepare to turn himself in. He should also make arrangements with a bonding agent so that he can be released shortly after surrender.
