Factors to Consider When Hiring a New Mexico Truck Accident Lawyer for Your Case


Choose the Right Truck Accident Lawyer for You

You’ve just survived a truck accident and may be facing accumulating medical bills and a long recovery. Or maybe you lost a loved one in a devastating truck crash and are unsure what to do next.  It’s time to call for legal assistance. But how do you choose the right truck accident lawyer? This isn’t just any decision – it’s about ensuring your future and peace of mind. We explain what traits and qualifications to look for in a New Mexico truck accident lawyer so you can be confident in your decision.

Factors to Consider When Hiring a Truck Accident Lawyer

Finding the right lawyer for your New Mexico truck accident case can feel overwhelming, but it is also crucial. 

Start your search by reaching out to those you trust. Ask friends and family members who have been through similar experiences for their recommendations, or consult a lawyer you've worked with before. Make sure the lawyer you choose has a strong track record in handling truck accident claims and a deep understanding of New Mexico's specific laws and the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration’s regulations. 

Check Client Testimonials and Reviews

You can also use online resources to aid your search. Look up truck accident attorneys in your area and read through testimonials and case results on their websites. These can offer valuable insights into a lawyer’s capabilities and the quality of their service. While no lawyer can guarantee a specific outcome, consistently positive feedback from past clients can give you confidence in your choice.

What You Learn During an Initial Consultation

Many truck accident lawyers offer a free initial consultation. Use this opportunity to ask questions, assess the lawyer’s skills, and determine if they are the right fit for you. Prepare a list of questions about their experience, approach to handling truck accident cases, and what you can expect from the legal process. This meeting will also give you a sense of the lawyer’s personality and whether you feel comfortable working with them.

Truck accident cases often require extensive investigation and access to various resources, such as accident reconstruction experts, medical professionals, and more. A well-established lawyer will have a network of professionals they can rely on to build a strong case on your behalf. Ask potential lawyers about their available resources and whether they can handle and support a case like yours.

Cost Considerations

Cost may also be a factor when hiring a lawyer. Many lawyers work on a contingency fee basis, meaning there are no upfront costs unless they win your case. The fee owed is a percentage of the final settlement. Be sure to understand the payment arrangement before signing any contracts.

At Keller & Keller, we offer a Zero-Fee Guarantee. You pay us nothing until a recovery is made on your behalf.   

What a Keller & Keller Truck Accident Lawyer Can Do For You

If you hire one of our truck accident lawyers, we will work to protect your legal rights and fair compensation for your injuries and damages. Your Albuquerque truck accident lawyer can provide advice and guide you throughout the legal process so you understand your rights and options.

Additionally, we will thoroughly investigate the accident to determine who was at fault. We will gather evidence such as witness testimony, photographs, medical and police reports, and more to build a strong case.

Your lawyer will negotiate with the insurance companies on your behalf to ensure you receive a fair settlement. If your case is not settled with the insurance company and goes to court, your lawyer can represent you and fight for the compensation you deserve.

At Keller & Keller, we have over 75 years of experience and results. We go above and beyond for each of our clients. We understand that each client and case is unique and will give you the personalized attention you deserve. 

Our client Amber was almost killed in a New Mexico truck accident. She was unsatisfied with another law firm and said, “I contacted Keller and Keller, laid out my claim and what happened with the other firm. They took my case. The difference was night and day. They stayed in contact with me every month as they finished the job my other law firm failed to complete. They explained everything along the way. When negotiations started, they explained more. I ended up with double the amount the other firm told me to take it or leave it.”

Additionally, our results speak for themselves. We secured a $1 million settlement for a family of five who were seriously injured in a semi-truck accident in New Mexico and $48.5 million for a family whose father/husband was killed in a New Mexico accident when hit head-on by a truck on his way to work.
