Automobile Accidents

The National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) estimates a car accident occurs every few seconds in the United States, resulting in millions of tragic injuries and wrongful deaths. For this reason, accidents caused by another driver's negligence are the most common personal injury cases.

Negligent activities involve speeding, failing to use or observe traffic signals, driving unsafely in poor weather conditions, and inattentiveness. Other main causes of vehicle accidents are defective products, driver's intentional or reckless behavior, and drunk driving.

Although car accidents are frequent, these cases are often complex and require diligent legal counsel. Situations in which the driver at fault has no insurance coverage are even more difficult to successfully bring to court on your own. An experienced personal injury attorney is  vital in these  cases.

Wrongful Death

Economic & Non-Economic Losses

The amount of damages you are eligible to recover depends on the facts of your specific case. New Mexico law generally allows recovery of both economic and non-economic losses. Economic losses include past and future medical expenses, past and future lost wages, and any other incidental expenses incurred as a result of the injury. Non-economic damages include pain and suffering, emotional distress, loss of companionship, and loss of enjoyment of life.
