    It's awfully scary to be confronted in such a situation with a tractor trailer! Fortunately it doesn't sound like you were injured. Under NM law the trucking company will pay for all damage to your vehicle and pay for either a rental car or loss of use (usually $30 per day in NM for all days that your vehicle is inoperable or in the body shop for repairs. If you are injured, then you may require an attorney to assist you. But if you only have a property damage and rental car/loss of use claim, you shouldn't have any problems.

    You need to immediately determine the identity of the contractor hired by the government entity contracting for the road repairs. You are required to give a written NM Tort Claims Notice to the government entity or you will be barred from recovering any money for your repairs.

  • I got hit by a car while driving my kids to school I have insurance but no license what should i do

    Mark’s Answer

    While you are required to operate a vehicle in NM with a license, your lack of license did not cause the accident. If you were safely operating the vehicle, then it should still be 100% the other person's fault. You and the passengers in your vehicle should then be permitted to recover money for medical bills, pain and suffering, lost earnings and permanent impairment. You would also be permitted to recover money for the property damage to your vehicle and loss of use or rental car. You should immediately contact a personal injury attorney in NM for a free consultation.

    You should consult with an attorney from Missouri, because that's where the lawsuit must be filed. Also, Missouri law applies to the facts and cause of the action. You need to immediately check on the statute of limitations in Missouri as well. I suggest that you find an AVVO Personal Injury Attorney who practices in Missouri asap. Good luck!

  • Do I need an attorney for a fall on my landlord's property?

    There is a hole big enough for my foot to fit on my second story porch where I rent. I was carrying in a shelf when my foot went into the hole and twisted my knee to the point of not being able to walk on it. This just happened about an hour ago. ...

    Mark’s Answer

    NM law requires the landlord to keep the property safe, but it also requires you to "look" where you are walking. If the hole was visible or you knew about it, you would have a difficult time against the landlord. If the hole was hidden and you didn't know about it, it would be much easier. Once you show its the landlords fault, you are entitled to money damages for medical bills, pain and suffering, lost earnings, etc.
