Hinkle Law Offices knows how property damage law in New Mexico works and we’re ready to help you.
If You’ve Been in an Accident…
Once the initial aftermath is over, in conjunction with your injury, the question of your property damage comes up. Do you have your insurance pay for it? Do you ask the other driver to have their insurance company cover it? What if you weren’t able to get them to initially? Can you file for damages even a year later?
New Mexico’s statute of limitations—the state law that sets a deadline for filing a civil lawsuit after you, the plaintiff, has suffered any type of harm—in regards to property damage is three years. If it’s taken you time to collect evidence and decide that you deserve compensation for what you’ve had to pay for, you can still pursue justice.
