Albuquerque Pedestrian Accident Lawyer

 

Most pedestrian accidents in New Mexico happen because the car or truck driver was paying more attention to the vehicles and not enough attention to everyone else on the road — especially pedestrians and bicyclists. It is common for a vehicle driver to act like they have the “right-of-way” and assume pedestrians will step back or dodge, which often lead to pedestrian accidents, in which case you should immediately hire an Albuquerque pedestrian accident lawyer. It is important to know that pedestrians always have the right-of-way,especially in a crosswalk or parking lot.

Drivers take huge risks when they fail to look both ways at an intersection. I have also represented pedestrian accident clients that were hit after a driver relied on their car’s backup sensors instead of actually looking to see if there was anyone behind them. I am always amazed when drivers enter a crosswalk expecting pedestrians to move out of the way. Unfortunately, the injuries from a vehicle vs. person collision are usually severe or can result in wrongful death. Therefore, it is important that you speak with an experienced pedestrian accident lawyer and your legal options for monetary recovery following a serious accident.

Don’t Fall Victim To The Games Insurance Companies Play!

As a former insurance defense lawyer, I understand the tactics insurers use at a time when people that are injured need the most help and are counting on the insurance company to treat them fairly. In order to reduce the value of your claim as much as possible, insurance companies often claim that the pedestrian was at fault: What were you wearing? Were you talking on the phone? Did you signal to the driver that you were going to walk into the crosswalk? If you were legally in a crosswalk and got hit, these questions don’t matter and should not be used to reduce what is owed to you for your injuries and pain and suffering.

I work hard to make sure you are not the victim of an unfair insurance company. Many people do not know that their own automobile insurance policies cover them in any kind of vehicular injury situation. If you were in a pedestrian accident and were struck in a crosswalk by an uninsured driver, or injured by a hit-and-run driver, your own uninsured and underinsured motorist coverage should protect you. Make an appointment with me and let me educate you on your rights under New Mexico law.
