An injury is a devastating experience that’s sure to cause serious hardships in your life. You don’t deserve to struggle on any disability because of someone else’s negligence. The New Mexico personal injury attorneys at Will Ferguson & Associates can help.

Whether you slipped and fell at Coronado Center or were seriously injured in a vehicle collision on the Big I, if you weren’t the person responsible for your accident, you shouldn’t be the one to pay for it.

It doesn’t matter what type of accident you were hurt in—if another party caused it, you may be able to obtain compensation for your losses.

Filing a personal injury claim against a negligent party serves multiple purposes. It allows you to hold the person who caused your injuries accountable. It allows you to recover monetary compensation for the damages your injuries have caused. And it can actually keep others safe by showing that negligent parties will be held responsible for their actions.

Winning a personal injury lawsuit isn’t easy, though. Your accident must be investigated to determine what caused it and who’s responsible. Evidence must be obtained and your settlement negotiated. Fortunately, you can contact us and secure legal help with your claim by calling a personal injury lawyer in New Mexico at Will Ferguson & Associates law firms.

Negligence in Personal Injury Cases in New Mexico

When you’ve been hurt in an accident, the laws surrounding recklessness allow you to file a personal injury claim. Negligence is when someone else’s careless, reckless, or willful actions cause your injuries. Because of that, the at-fault party is liable for your injuries. You can sue the negligent party for compensation for your damages.

To win your lawsuit, you will need to figure out what caused your accident and who was responsible for it. Once that’s determined, victims will need to prove that the other party’s neglectfulness using evidence. Evidence can include car accident scene footage, photos of an accident location, or witness statements that show careless or negligent behavior.

The proof your attorney gathers for you will help ensure that your side of the story is heard and understood as also help you ensure that you’ll win and receive the compensation you need.

The victims’ end goal is likely to receive monetary compensation, which is a form of justice for their devastating experience. Compensation can pay for your financial losses, such as medical expenses pertaining to your injuries, and it can make things right by paying you back for the suffering you’ve endured.

Frequently Asked Injury Questions


Find Your Answers

The attorneys at our New Mexico law firms are ready to discuss your case with you during a free consultation at any time. In the meantime, if you’d like to see the answers to some of the questions the lawyer often receives, see below.

What’s the difference between economic and non-economic damages?

When you’ve been hurt in an accident, you suffer losses and hardships. These are called damages. Economic damages are the financial ways your accident has impacted you, such as medical treatment, property damage, and lost wages. Non-economic damages refer to pain, suffering, and trauma you endured because of the accident.

What if I can’t afford to pay an injury lawyer in ABQ NM?

Many people don’t think they can afford an attorney, so they fail to secure one for their claim. This can limit the amount of compensation they ultimately receive, and it hurts their chances of winning their claim. The attorneys at our firm work on a contingency-fee basis for personal injury cases. That means victims don’t pay us unless our personal injury attorney wins.

What happens if I share some fault for the accident?

New Mexico fault laws allow you to seek damages for an accident even if you were partially to blame for the accident that harmed you. If someone else was, say, 70 percent responsible for your injuries and you were 30 percent at fault, you could only sue the other party for 70 percent of the damages.

Does the severity of my injury affect the amount of compensation I can receive?

Yes, it does. If you suffer only a minor personal injury, you can expect only a small amount of compensation. If your personal injury is life-changing, though, you will likely be eligible to receive a higher amount of compensation. You will likely have greater medical bills and emotional trauma, and you may be unable to work again.

Will I have to go to court for my injury claim in New Mexico?

Probably not, but it is possible. Most cases can be settled outside of the courtroom, but if the other side isn’t willing to pay you the amount of compensation your injuries demand, your attorney will be ready to take your claim to the courtroom. Don’t let the thought of court worry you—your attorney will fully prepare you.
