Who is At Fault in an Albuquerque Auto Accident?

Proving who is at fault in your automobile accident is key to getting a fair settlement in your accident claim or winning in court. In New Mexico, the law requires that a person contributes some fault to be held liable for damages.

In auto accident cases, a determination of fault is based on negligence. Negligence is defined as carelessness or failure to act with reasonable care.

The driver who acted most negligently in the accident can be held liable for compensatory damages. Depending on the circumstances, more than one party can be found liable.
