Albuquerque Car Accident Lawyer
Personal Injury Attorney in Albuquerque, NM
No one expects to be involved in a car accident, which is why it is so important to be prepared. When an accident does happen, you could be facing serious injuries and have many questions regarding your future.
I am Albuquerque injury attorney Brady Pofahl. At my law office, I help car accident victims from across New Mexico get the answers they need after a catastrophic injury. Using my insight and experience as a former insurance defense lawyer, I protect them from unfair insurance company practices and work hard to maximize the financial compensation they receive.
Get a Former Insurance Attorney on Your Side
People want to be helpful and work cooperatively with their insurance company after an accident; however, there are two important things to know if you have been involved in a crash:
- Insurance companies will use any recorded statements you make against you so talk to a lawyer first, before you may any statements!
- Obtain medical care as soon as possible, ideally with your primary care physician. If you do not have health insurance, contact at attorney right away to learn about ways you can get assistance and receive treatment from a medical doctor. The longer you wait to get treatment, the more likely it is that you will aggravate your injuries. Waiting makes it easier for the insurance company to argue that your injuries were not caused by the accident.
Insurance adjusters are specifically trained to deal with people who are not represented by a lawyer. In fact, they often try to steer victims away from contacting a lawyer by convincing them that the insurance companies will act in their best interest or they will get more money if they do not hire a lawyer.
Just remember - it is the claim adjuster's job to reduce the amount that the insurance company has to pay after a car accident, not to maximize what you get on your injury claim. As your personal injury attorney, I have your best interests at heart and your future in mind. I will advise you on your rights, protect your interests and make sure you get what you are entitled to under the law.
