Drunk driving kills hundreds of people each year in New Mexico. People who drive under the influence of alcohol are not only breaking the law. They are putting others in danger of being seriously hurt or killed in a car accident.

That’s why you need an attorney on your side dedicated to helping injured drivers seek justice.

He can put his years of experience and vast legal knowledge to work by gathering the facts you need to build a strong claim. Contact attorney Szantho today and find out what he can do for you.

Damage and suffering caused by drunk drivers

The effects of alcohol can cause delays in judgment and reaction time. This can result in devastating crashes such as:

  • Rear-end accidents
  • Head-on collisions
  • T-bone accidents
  • Lane departure accidents
  • Single-vehicle accidents

The injuries sustained in accidents caused by drunk drivers can often take months, and even years, to recover from. That’s because drunk drivers often fail to take evasive measure to avoid a crash, resulting in high-speed collisions. Crash victims can suffer from:

  • Spinal injuries
  • Broken bones
  • Head injuries
  • Cuts, bruises and contusions
  • Paralysis
  • Death

Take your claim seriously from the start

If you have been injured in an auto accident caused by a drunk driver in New Mexico, there should be no question as to who was at fault. If the negligent driver was found to have alcohol in his or her system at the time of the crash, the evidence is obvious. But even then, don’t count on the other driver’s insurance company to help cover the cost of your recovery. They only care about reducing their costs, and they’ll often stop at nothing to do that.

Don’t fall for the insurance company’s tricks. Don’t let them take advantage of you. Let an experienced Santa Fe auto accident attorney handle your case so you can focus on your recovery. If the actions of a drunk driver caused the loss of a loved one, you may be eligible for a wrongful death claim. This means you would be entitled to compensation on behalf of the deceased crash victim.
