Personal Injury FAQs
What Can I Recover in a Personal Injury Claim?
Our attorneys can determine what damages you have in order to pursue the full amount of financial compensation you need. Medical bills comprise a significant amount of these costs and include expenses like surgeries, hospital stays, medications, ambulance rides, and more, as well as additional costs if injuries require long-term care. Compensation can also cover your lost wages if you’ve had to miss work, as well as property damage and pain and suffering.
What is Comparative Negligence?
New Mexico follows what is known as a comparative negligence statute, which means that individuals who are found to be partly at fault for their own damages in an accident may not be able to recover the full amount of compensation. For instance, if a victim is 30% at fault for an accident in which they’re seeking $100,000, they may only be able to recover $70,000. It’s important to hire a local law firm that is knowledgeable on New Mexico statutes and can protect your rights.
How Long Do I Have to File a Claim in New Mexico?
Each state has its own deadlines for filing personal injury claims. New Mexico’s statute of limitations is three years, meaning individuals have three years from the date of injury to file a claim and have an opportunity to collect financial rewards. This also means that if you file your claim one day after the deadline, you will be unable to be compensated. It’s crucial that you get started on your case immediately after your accident to ensure you don’t miss your chance at making a swift recovery.
