Cases We Handle

Improper lane use/lane change

Many car accidents are the result of an improper lane change. Drivers may change lanes only when it is safe to do so.


When a driver speeds, they don’t have as much time to react to dangerous conditions on the roads. Not only can it make a crash more likely to occur, but it can make a crash more severe.

Running a red light or stop sign

Drivers must obey right of way laws. Running a red light or stop sign can result in a serious, side-impact crash.

Following too closely

Tailgating, or following too closely to the vehicle in front, can result in a rear-end accident. A victim may suffer broken bones, traumatic brain injury, whiplash and other injuries.

Unsecured load/debris

Items that fall from a vehicle, or trailer sway from an uneven load, can create danger. Commercial drivers and individuals alike must make sure that the load they are transporting is secure.

Texting, distracted driving

Distracted driving reduces awareness. Even a small moment of distraction can result in serious harm.

Single, two-vehicle and pile-up accidents

Many car accidents occur when two vehicles collide. However, single vehicle and pile-up accidents also occur. Whatever the situation, we can investigate and represent your interests.

Vehicle defects and malfunctions

A poor vehicle design can cause an accident. It can also make an accident more severe or a vehicle fire more likely to occur. Let our team investigate and build your case for compensation.

Airbag injuries

Airbags save lives. Unfortunately, they can also be defective, and they can cause injury. Our team can help you investigate and determine your right to compensation.

Commercial motor vehicles, trucks

Commercial motor vehicle drivers, including trucks, must comply with federal regulations and state laws. Our legal team knows these regulations, and we can investigate the actions of the company leading up to the crash.

Motorcycle accidents

Motorcycle accident victims often suffer serious injury including brain trauma and road rash. Our lawyers make sure that your financial losses and pain and suffering are included in your claim.

Drunk driving, driving under the influence of drugs

When drunk driving causes an accident, you deserve justice. See how you may receive fair compensation and hold the offender accountable when you are harmed by a drunk driver.

Pedestrians and bicyclists

If you are hit by a motor vehicle as a pedestrian or bicyclist, you may have a car accident claim. Injuries are often serious, and you deserve qualified legal representation.

Car Accident Claims

The basis of a car accident claim is that you are hurt in a car accident, and it is someone else’s fault. When you’re hurt, and someone else caused the accident because of negligence or other conduct, the party is legally responsible for damages. Damages are the ways that you are impacted by the car accident, both financial and personally.

A claim is a civil action. The victim initiates it. Some claims are handled directly through insurance negotiations. Other claims go to court. In either situation, you may benefit from having an auto accident attorney from Callender Bowlin represent you. Our professionals are trained to get results for our clients. If you have been harmed, we want to assist you.

To start your case, contact us. Tell us your story. We’ll answer your questions and introduce our legal team. We can begin representing you right away.

Helping Victims Get Compensated

At Callender Bowlin, our car crash lawyers represent our clients in the claims process following a car accident. If you deserve compensation, you should receive it. You should receive the full amount that you may claim under the law.

Getting the compensation that you deserve should be a simple process. Unfortunately, the insurance companies can make it difficult. Remember, the insurance company doesn’t work for you. They profit when they collect premiums and minimize their payments.

It can be hard to know the true value of your case. You may not know what to do to receive your payment. Our car crash attorneys represent victims and their families. We want to:

  • Claim your compensation
  • Maximize the amount you deserve under the law
  • Make the claims process manageable
  • Avoid mistakes that can prevent you from achieving the result you deserve

As a litigation boutique law firm, we handle a wide variety of car accident claims. To see how we can help you, contact us now for your case review.

The litigation

If necessary, we file your claim in court. Our team uses legal procedures to build the evidence and narrow the issues in dispute. We continue to negotiate, which may include mediation. We represent you in all court hearings.

Some cases go to trial. We present your case and make arguments. We are trial lawyers, and we are ready to take your case to court if necessary.

The compensation

Ultimately, it’s our goal for you to get justice and the compensation that you deserve. Each case is personalized to the client. Our team will know your case in detail and understand your situation so that we can represent you fully.

New Mexico Car Accident Laws

New Mexico car accident laws come primarily from New Mexico laws that apply statewide. There are rules of the road. All drivers must follow them, obeying traffic laws and driving carefully.

Most car accidents can be traced to negligence. Negligence occurs when someone does something – or fails to do something – that creates an unreasonable risk of an accident. For example, a reasonable person doesn’t speed. They don’t run red lights. They only change lanes when it is safe to do so.

There are just some examples of negligence. Negligence covers a wide variety of actions. A traffic violation is strong evidence of fault, but there may be other things that make a party liable for causing an accident. The responsible party doesn’t have to act on purpose to cause the accident. All that is required is that they acted negligently, and their negligence caused your injuries.

Is New Mexico no-fault for car accidents?

New Mexico is a fault state for car accidents. The state does not have no-fault laws. A car accident claim begins with determining fault for the accident.

The insurance company says I was at fault! Can I still get compensation?

Remember that the insurance company doesn’t want to pay compensation. They’re not going to volunteer that their insured party is at fault. They’re hoping that you’ll believe them and give up on your claim.

We invite you to talk to our car accident lawyers about your case. We can give you an honest assessment. We understand legal fault. We can evaluate how it may apply in your situation.

If the insured party was at fault, and the insurance company won’t pay, we can take legal action on your behalf. In addition, having a lawyer lets the insurance company know that you’re determined to receive your compensation. We can negotiate on your behalf.

Even if you were partially at fault for an accident, remember that car accident claims can be complicated. New Mexico uses a comparative negligence system. The system applies in Albuquerque, too. Your compensation may be reduced by the percentage that you were at fault, but you may still receive compensation.

It’s not the insurance company that has the final say about fault. You may take your case to court.

If the insurance company says that you were at fault for the car accident, please contact us. We can take it from there.

What is my case worth?

When we meet with new clients, they are often shocked to learn how much their case may be worth. You may receive payment for medical bills, lost income, vehicle damage and other financial losses. However, your true suffering from a car accident goes far beyond direct financial losses. You also deserve recognition for your pain and suffering, emotional anguish and disfigurement. You deserve compensation for the way injuries have changed your life.

Let us personally review what your case is worth. We can explain what’s necessary to receive your compensation and how we can help.
