Trucking Accident
Caruso Law Offices only handles personal injury claims and wrongful death claims. This lets us focus on just one specific area of the law--personal injury. I am a former insurance company attorney who now represents the victims. (505) 883-5000
I help those people who have suffered from an accident in Albuquerque statewide New Mexico. Personal injuries are not just physical cuts and bruises, strains, broken bones, neck and back injuries. They include emotional and psychological suffering, which some people forget can always accompany an accident.

It is my experience that somebody who has been genuinely injured as a result of an accident is always under a lot of stress trying to recover from their injuries and worry about how the accident is going to affect their family life, their jobs and, ultimately, their bank balance. Personal injuries can prove to be very expensive to those who have suffered from them.

I handle personal injuries from the following sorts of accidents:
Car accidents
Truck accidents (including semi-trucks and 18 wheelers)
Pedestrian accidents
Motorcycle accidents
Pedestrian accidents
Wrongful death claims

I evaluate a case as follows:

Can we prove that the other person was at fault, i.e. prove that they behaved negligently.

Can we prove a link between the actions of the third party and your injuries i.e. their negligence actually caused you harm.

What are the past, present and future injuries and damages which have resulted or may result from your accident. These loss of income, medical expenses, pain and suffering, permanent injuries and possibly punitive damages.

I can assure you that I will not leave a stone upturned if it means I have to look for evidence that will back up your claim.

Trusted Expertise in Personal Injury Cases

Because of my long experience as an attorney in California and New Mexico I have built an excellent relationship with a number of experts who can be called upon to offer their expertise on each potential claim. These include doctors and surgeons, engineers and crash researchers.

Any personal injury claim must reflect the full cost of recovery and for some injuries this can mean million dollar claims. Anybody who has had a serious spine or brain injury as a result of a car or motorcycle accident is going to be seriously handicapped for a very long time. In some cases these serious injuries can mean a lifetime of care and support.

This is why choosing the right attorney to represent you is so important. Because I have concentrated exclusively personal injury cases, I have developed an excellent success rate in the cases I take on. You must be very wary of selecting any attorney as you could very well end up with a lot less damages payment than you rightfully deserve.

Beware of Contact with Insurance Companies

I worked as an attorney for insurance companies for several years and know exactly what their attitude is when they have to deal with an insurance claim as a result of a personal injury case. These insurance companies are not interested in your injuries or what their own client did or did not do. All they are interested in doing is trying to wriggle out of paying a cent. If they have to pay anything at all they will try to pay as little as possible. If the fault is an open and shut case, then somebody may even try to contact you as soon after the accident as possible and offer a ridiculously low offer just to persuade you not to make a claim.

The best advice I have if you have had an accident is to avoid any contact with the insurance company. Let me give you a personal and free consultation, and I will give you honest answers and recommendations. This is your best guarantee that you will eventually get to keep what you truly deserve to compensate you for all the injuries which you have experienced which were somebody fault.

Call me at (505) for your free consultation with me personally. If you permit me to help you, I will not charge you anything unless your claim is won. If the claim is successful and can be negotiated without having to go to trial, then I offer a discount on the contingency fee, something which no other attorney in Albuquerque will do,

If you or a loved one has had an accident that was not your fault and has suffered from a personal injury, then contact me at the Caruso Law Offices at (505) 883-5000 or visit my web site at www.carusolaw.com

How did your firm decide on the primary area of practice(s)?

After years of working for the insurance companies against the victims of another's negligence, I decided that I must quit and begin working to help victims. I now exclusively represent individuals with personal injury claims against some of these same insurance companies.

I know how insurance companies work, and I use this experience to help my clients get the most money possible. Call me at (505) 883-5000 for a free consultation.

What experience or education distinguishes your lawyers from others

As a former insurance company attorney I know the "ins-and-outs" of the insurance claims business. I used to be working against victims. Now I exclusively represent those with claims against insurance companies. I have 31 years experience working on personal injury and wrongful death claims.

I know the tricks of the insurance companies, and they don't work on me. That's why I can get the highest possible settlement or judgment against insurance companies and large corporations.

Call me at (505) 883-5000 for a free consultation.

What distinguishes your law firm from others?

We discount our contingency attorney fee to 29%.

Most other attorneys throughout NM charge a 33 1/3% fee. By reducing our fee, we put more money in the client's pocket. A discounted attorney fee does not mean that you get a lesser service or lose quality. Mark Caruso has 31 years experience handling personal injury claims and used to be a former insurance company attorney.

Because we don't advertise on television, radio, billboards or the sides of city buses, we have a much lower advertising expense. We would rather put more money in your pocket than spend the large amounts of money on advertising to get new clients. Because of our 29% discounted attorney fee we get referrals from previous clients, doctors, attorneys, auto body shop and even other insurance company agents who sell the insurance to their own clients.

Call us today at (505) 883-5000 for a free consultation and find out more about our law firm and how we can help you get the most money possible in your pocket.

How frequently does your firm use mediation, arbitration, or collaborative law to resolve cases?

Caruso Law Offices strongly believes in mediations and settlement conferences prior to incurring costs for litigation. If an insurance adjuster is local within Albuquerque or is willing to travel to Albuquerque, a mediation can help to immediately resolve the case. We have had tremendous success in mediations with some of Albuquerque's retired judges who we use on a regular basis. Call us at (505) 883-5000 to find out how we can use a mediation or settlement conference to speed up the resolution of your claim.

Does your firm provide pro bono legal services or otherwise participate in your community?

Our attorneys are involved in the Albuquerque community. Mark Caruso is on the attorney advisory committee of Mothers Against Drunk Driversh. He previously served in the New Mexico Legislature. He is active at Legacy Church.

How did your firm decide on the primary area of practice(s)

At Caruso Law Offices we only take on personal injury and wrongful death cases. We handle no other types of cases. Mark Caruso started representing insurance companies when her first practiced law. He found that he could no longer represent rich insurance companies who only cared about making money for their stockholders. In 1987 Mark Caruso opened his practice to exclusiveley represent victims against these same insurance companies and corporations. It provides rewarding job satisfaction when we help the "little guy" against the big corporation.
