Understanding Your New Mexico Accident Report
One of the most important pieces of evidence in legal cases involving car accidents in New Mexico is the accident report filled out by the investigating police officer or trooper from the New Mexico State Police. Officially known as the State of New Mexico Uniform Crash Report, this two-page-long document contains a wealth of information about your motor vehicle crash.
That’s why it’s critical that you carefully review your official accident report. If there are minor mistakes or significant factual errors, your car accident claim might be denied – even if the other driver clearly caused your crash. New Mexico has an at-fault car insurance system. That means the at-fault party – and their insurance company – is responsible for paying for your accident-related expenses. And you can bet that insurance company adjusters will review your accident report in search of anything they can use to deny your claim.
