Personal Injury and Wrongful Death Cases

In New Mexico, Personal Injury and Wrongful Death litigation means lawsuits or claims made by lawyers on behalf of people (or their families) who have been hurt or killed because of the wrongdoing of others.

Types of personal injury or wrongful death cases include:

  • Car or motorcycle accidents
  • Truck (semi truck or “big rig”) accidents
  • Medical Malpractice (where a doctor or other healthcare professional hurts or kills someone while performing a medical procedure or providing care)
  • Nursing home abuse and neglect
  • Slip and falls (either at someone’s home or at a business or apartment)
  • Dog Bites and other animal attacks
  • Prescription drug overdoses or reactions
  • Dangerous products or drugs
  • Intentional violence (like drive-by shootings or other attacks)

How do I know if I have a claim for personal injury or wrongful death?

If you or someone you know or love got hurt because of the wrongdoing of someone else, you might have a claim.  But it’s hard to know unless you have a lawyer evaluate your case and investigate.  That’s why getting a lawyer on your side as soon as possible is very important.  A good personal injury and wrongful death lawyer will help you investigate your case and find out what, exactly, happened.  And if someone did something wrong, a good lawyer will advise you of what was done and whether a lawsuit or claim settlement is appropriate.  Ideally, a good personal injury and wrongful death lawyer will take steps in the lawsuit to make sure something like what happened to you or your loved one doesn’t happen to someone else in the future.

Why Should I hire a Lawyer for a Personal Injury or Wrongful Death Claim?

Insurance companies have teams of adjusters who use computer programs to try to figure out how to pay as little on a wrongful death or personal injury claim as possible. And insurance companies have their own lawyers. That means that you will have a very difficult time fighting them on your own. And if you or someone you know has a wrongful death or injury claim, the last thing you need to be worrying about is fighting with the insurance companies. Let the experienced, compassionate attorney at Holmes Law Firm help. We will take care of you and your loved ones and make sure that you can concentrate on the long road to recovery while we focus on justice for you.
