Unique State Law Protection For Motorists
Uninsured motorist laws in New Mexico are significantly different from those in neighboring states such as Texas and afford protection to drivers even in situations where no contact was made with another vehicle.
A common example where this law applies is the situation where one driver cuts off another car and — intentionally or unintentionally — causes the car to go off the road. If this leads to a crash, the driver of the car that was forced off the road can seek coverage under an uninsured/underinsured motorist policy for his or her medical bills, vehicle repair and other damages. This varies significantly from the approach that Texas and other states take, as those jurisdictions require contact between two vehicles before allowing an uninsured motorist claim to be filed.
