Personal Injury Attorneys Serving You in New Mexico
Have you been injured in a serious accident and sustained severe injuries? You don’t want to handle your injury case on your own, especially when you are recovering from serious injuries that have left a lasting impact. The problem is, every year, people attempt to handle their injury case on their own. You should always have an injury attorney on your side no matter what, to handle the difficult matters you can’t handle on your own.
Why You Should Have an Accident Attorney on Your Side
If you have been injured in an accident and suffered only minor injuries, you may stop abruptly in your tracks and attempt to handle your case on your own. Many people do this every year, especially since many of these cases end in a negotiation and settlement that they can agree with. However, when your accident case ends in severe injuries and many elements are involved, having an accident attorney on your side can help you go up against the big insurance companies and teams of lawyers who may try to build a case against you. Are you facing extensive medical bills, lost out on significant wages because you can’t return to work, or have a financial strain in other areas of your life? An attorney can help you negotiate or litigate these matters and get the compensation a liable party owes you.
If you have been injured in a New Mexico personal injury accident, you may want to consider pursuing a claim. This is especially important if you have been involved in an accident with a long-term or permanent disability. If you are not expected to immediately recover from your injuries, you will need compensation for all that you have lost on a financial level. Many insurance companies will deny you a fair settlement offer, which means that you need the help of an attorney to work through the red tape of these companies and get you compensation in a timely manner.
Cases We Handle
Perhaps you have been injured in a motor vehicle accident, or one involving a common carrier or drunk driver. We can help you gain compensation in a variety of cases for your serious injuries. Here is a quick overview of some of the cases we handle in New Mexico when you have been injured due to a negligent party.
Auto Accidents: Thousands of accidents involving serious injuries take place in New Mexico every single year. Unfortunately, after a car accident causes chaos in your life and leaves you with severe injuries, you may be unaware of what you should do aside from seeking medical treatment and trying to move forward. You may be left wondering how to compensate for economic and non-economic damages, like medical expenses, past and future lost wages, pain, and suffering, and emotional distress. So why should you have an experienced attorney on your side if you have been injured in an auto accident? To help you prove the 4 elements of your case: from duty, breach of duty, causation, and harm caused by a negligent defendant. You may be liable for damages from the other party, so call us today.
Motorcycle Accidents: Those who ride motorcycles may find that they have minimal protection on their vehicles compared to that of motor vehicle drivers and truck drivers. This can lead to unexpected, catastrophic injuries, especially when a rider is thrown from their bike. Drivers tend to fail to look out for motorcycle riders in some cases, speeding around them, using drugs and alcohol while driving, and failing to check blind spots as well as failing to yield for motorcyclists. All of these actions can lead to devastating results like permanent disability and even death. An attorney will be able to help you show that a driver acted negligently in your case and help you receive the compensation that is owed to you.
Pedestrian Accidents: Like many other vulnerable figures on the roadways, pedestrians are owed a special duty of care by drivers who share the roads with them. Negligence occurs in these cases for many reasons, like improper lane use, unmarked crosswalks at intersections, left-hand turn accidents, distracted driving from cell phone use and more, and many other types of negligence that occur on a daily basis in New Mexico. If a driver violated their duty of care against you or broke the law in some way and you were injured, you should retain your rights and speak to an attorney as soon as possible.
Commercial Vehicle Accidents: With many businesses thriving and alive in New Mexico, you will find many commercial vehicles on the road as well. As a result, there is a higher chance for accidents related to commercial vehicles. These include accidents that occur with passenger cars, vans, box trucks, delivery vehicles, hearses, and so many more. These cases are unique because both drivers and companies could be liable for your injuries and owe you compensation for a variety of aspects like medical expenses, pain and suffering, and more.
Truck Accidents: Truck accidents tend to not be as prevalent as motor vehicle accidents, but they still happen every day across the U.S. Injuries stemming from these accidents are almost always serious or catastrophic in nature. Most often, they happen due to equipment failure, driving errors, avoiding regulations that govern trucks, and more. In truck accidents, you could also see many parties liable for your injuries, from the driver to the company or the person who loaded cargo on the vehicle. If regulations have been ignored, a trucking company or driver could be liable for your injuries.
Wrongful Death: Nobody expects to be involved in an accident that claims their life. If your loved one has lost their life due to an accident, you may be able to bring a claim on their behalf. Families can suffer on a financial and emotional level when an accident has taken a life. You may be able to compensate for lost wages, loss of companionship, and more. But act quickly, because there is a statute of limitations to abide by and many requirements to be met in these cases!
We handle many other types of cases in New Mexico, from those involving buses, bicycles, and Uber or ridesharing companies, to those caused by drunk drivers. Your case is important to you, which means you should have an attorney on your side through every step of the personal injury claim process. Handling a case on your own means going up against the big name insurance companies and other attorneys on your own.
