New Mexico Personal Injury Statute of Limitations 

The statute of limitations is a critical factor in filing a personal injury lawsuit for compensation after a truck accident. Being aware of New Mexico’s statute of limitations is important as it varies in length in each state. If you don't initiate your case within the designated time, you forfeit your right to sue. 

The statute of limitations in New Mexico are as follows:

  • Three years from the date of the accident to file a lawsuit
  • Three years to seek payment for property damages
  • Three years from the date of a loved one’s passing to file a wrongful death action if their death was the result of the accident

Working with a lawyer as soon as possible is critical for ensuring your rights are protected. Although you may think three years is a significant amount of time to file your case, filing promptly can help you to avoid losing any important documentation and provide more opportunities to build a strong case.
