Types Of Personal Injury Cases We Handle
Our Albuquerque practice has seen many personal injury cases and situations. We are familiar with the laws that surround an individual injury case in New Mexico and can help our clients through each step of their case.
We can help you with a variety of personal injury cases and accident types, including:
- Nursing home abuse and negligence
- Car accidents
- Truck accidents
- Motorcycle crashes
- Pedestrian and bicycle accidents
- Wrongful death
These accidents and events can cause different injuries, ranging in severity. We have seen many vehicle crash injuries, including severe injuries such as back and spinal cord injuries, traumatic brain injuries, neck injuries, severe burns and broken bones. We also see slip-and-fall cases that may result in traumatic injuries, such as brain injuries.
With nursing home abuse or neglect, the injuries can often be more subtle, including cuts and bruises, bed sores, infections and broken bones. Having seen personal injury victims suffer from these injuries firsthand, we are familiar with the typical treatment plans and options that you may face.
We know that your injury or loss won’t disappear at the end of our case, but we can help you take the next step in your recovery by holding those at fault responsible and seeking compensation for your pain. Whether you are facing years of medical treatment due to a catastrophic injury or have lost a loved one, our personal injury law firm in Albuquerque is prepared to assist you in seeking compensation.
What Does A Personal Injury Lawyer Do?
You may be wondering why you need to hire an attorney for your personal injury claims. While you can settle the case on your own, we recommend speaking with an experienced attorney to maximize your potential of obtaining the compensation you deserve. If you are an injured party, the last thing you want to do is fight with insurance companies. Experienced personal injury and accident attorneys can help ease that burden and take over the negotiations.
What Are The Benefits Of Hiring A Personal Injury Lawyer?
Personal injury lawyers can provide legal support while you recover from your injuries or grieve the loss of a loved one. With an attorney taking over the filings, negotiations and paperwork, you can focus on your recovery. Personal injury attorneys also have unique experience negotiating with insurance adjusters and know how to prevent an insurance company from taking advantage of a victim.
On your own, it can be difficult to estimate how much your claim is worth. There are a lot of factors and bills that go into that final number. A personal injury lawyer can help you calculate the value of your claim based on your economic and noneconomic damages.
How Much Does A Personal Injury Lawyer Cost?
Personal injury firms typically charge clients on a contingency-fee-basis, meaning a fee percentage is taken out of the settlement check won at the end of your case. This prevents you from paying upfront when you are already struggling to keep up with mounting medical bills and property damage.
How Long Does A Personal Injury Lawsuit Last?
The length of a personal injury lawsuit can be anywhere from a few months to a few years, depending on the complexity of the case and how willing the other parties are to work together. It also can depend on the severity of the injuries sustained.
