How Will an Attorney Help Your Claim?

Personal injury litigation can become incredibly complex and time-consuming. Unfortunately, most injury victims do not have the resources or legal experience to properly handle these claims on their own. A New Mexico personal injury lawyer can use their resources and legal expertise to handle every aspect of these claims. First and foremost, this includes gathering all evidence needed to prove liability including, but not limited to:

  • Any photo or video surveillance related to the incident
  • Statements from any eyewitnesses
  • Accident or police reports
  • Vehicle “black box” data
  • Mobile device data
  • Company safety records

No two personal injury cases are exactly alike, and the evidence needed for one type of claim will certainly look different than the evidence needed for another type. For example, the evidence needed to prove liability for a car accident will be different than the types of evidence we gather for a defective product claim.

Time is your most important resource, the sooner we can dive into your claim and begin interviews and research, the better chances we have of building a successful case.

Aside from gathering evidence, an attorney will work closely with medical and economic experts to properly calculate their client’s total losses. An attorney will negotiate with all parties involved to try and reach a fair out-of-court settlement while also fully preparing to take the case to trial.

How Long Do You Have to File a Personal Injury Lawsuit in New Mexico?

Personal injury victims in New Mexico need to be aware that they have a limited amount of time to file their claims. In this state, the personal injury statute of limitations is three years from the date an injury occurs. This gives victims a three-year window with which to file a lawsuit against the alleged negligent party in their case, or they will lose the ability to recover the compensation they need.

Types of Compensation Available

There may be various types of compensation available to personal injury victims in New Mexico. At Liles White, we are regularly able to help secure various types of economic and non-economic compensation for injury victims.

  • Economic compensation. This is also referred to as special damages, and focuses on the types of compensation that are calculable after an injury occurs. This can include the following:
    • Past, current, and future medical bills
    • Lost wages
    • Physical therapy or rehabilitation
    • Prescription medications
    • Medical devices
    • General household out-of-pocket costs
  • Non-economic compensation. This is also referred to as general damages and focuses on the types of compensation that are a bit harder to calculate after an injury occurs. That is because these types of damages do not come with bills or receipts. This is often referred to as “pain and suffering” damages and can include a victim’s:
    • Physical pain and suffering
    • Emotional distress
    • Scarring and disfigurement
    • Physical impairment
    • Loss of quality of life
    • Loss of sexual function

There is no set amount of money available to personal injury victims in New Mexico. Rather, there are various factors that can affect the total amount paid to victims through a settlement or successful jury verdict. These factors can include the severity of the initial injury, the length of the recovery time, the level of pain and suffering the victim endures, and whether or not there was any shared liability.
