New Mexico Serious Car Accident Lawyers

Advocating for Serious & Fatal Crash Victims

Driving can be dangerous, which is why the rules of the road must be followed. When people or companies choose not to follow the rules of the road and cause serious injuries, they must be held accountable. Anyone from a fellow driver to a company or government charged with maintaining a roadway,, to construction crew, and others, can be held liable when their conduct causes injuries on the road.

Auto accidents can cause serious injuries or fatalities that disrupt victims’ lives and change their futures. At McGinn, Montoya, Love & Curry, we are experienced in holding various parties accountable when their conduct catastrophically injures or kills others on the road. If you or a loved one has been seriously injured or wrongfully killed on the roadway, we can help.

Reckless individuals and/or larger systemic issues are often behind car accidents. Our team’s counsel is experienced in these cases in identifying all parties who caused or contributed to cause serious crashes.

Who Is Liable when Accidents Result in Fatal or Serious Injury?

The severity of an injury will not change who can be held liable. A negligent party should be held liable for any injury they cause.

Knowing who is at fault for a car accident matters, but not only because the at-fault party is liable for damages, but also because if an insurance provider can shift blame onto an accident victim like you, it can reduce the amount it owes..

At McGinn, Montoya, Love & Curry, we are passionate about helping car crash victims who have suffered life-changing injuries. We are also committed to advocating for those who have lost their loved ones in a crash. If your life has been forever changed by an auto accident, don’t hesitate to contact our firm.

Having our legal team on your side to investigate the scene of an accident as soon as possible after a crash occurs ensures that evidence is preserved and we can also take care of all insurer discussions and negotiations, being mindful of the way adjusters try to induce statements they can later use against you in court.

Please keep in mind that not all accidents are as simple as they originally seem. A third party—like another driver, an automaker that used faulty parts, or an official who poorly maintained a road—may have contributed to your accident. If you do not have a lawyer who considers third-party involvement, you may not be able to bring all wrongdoers involved to justice. This means you will also miss potential sources of compensation whose help could be vital. Ask our team what we can do to identify liable parties after an accident.

How We Have Made a Difference

Hiring Restrictions for Former DUI Offenders

Pfeifer v. United States, U.S. Federal District Court for The District Of New Mexico, CV 0201368

Bud and Alice Ramaekers were killed when their car was hit head-on by a drunk, on-the-job federal government worker. Already devastated, the Ramaekers’ 9 children and 28 grandchildren learned the Bureau of Indian Affairs (BIA) had, in despite of the at-fault employee’s 9 previous drunk driving arrests, helped him keep his driver’s license and given him a government vehicle to drive. The Ramaekers filed suit, and we argued their case in a public trial to make citizens aware the government was enabling drunk drivers.

The family won their case, and the BIA has now changed its motor vehicle policy to make highways safer. Not only did this family’s courage to fight the federal government result in safer procedures, but it also helped spread the word to private and public employers alike that employers cannot ignore or enable workers who struggle with alcohol use disorders.

Requiring Back-Up Warning Devices on School Buses

H.C., as personal representative of the Estate of A.C. (a deceased minor) v. Bus Company

A local school district and a bus company put an untrained passenger assistant in the driver’s seat of a school bus, and the predictable happened. The inexperienced driver violated the rule to never back up a bus at a school loading zone. Two children were killed. The bus was not equipped with safety warning devices (back-up lights and beepers), which were, at this time, standard on all school buses around the country.

The case settled for a confidential sum. The resolution also included a request that a back-up warning be mandatory on all school buses. The school district made this change, and all bus contractors are now required to use school buses equipped with back-up warning alarms.
