NEW MEXICO PERSONAL INJURY ATTORNEYS
The Fine Law Firm handles serious personal injury, car, truck, and motorcycle accidents, medical malpractice, product liability and wrongful death cases. Our Albuquerque personal injury lawyers have a combined experience of more than 100 years practicing injury law. While most of our New Mexico personal injury cases resolve before trial, we are trial attorneys and recognize the benefit of aggressively preparing all cases. We handle personal injury cases in all areas of New Mexico, in both state and federal court. We also handle a select number of out-of-state personal injury cases in which, if necessary, we will associate with out-of-state counsel.
The highest percentage of the Fine Law Firm’s New Mexico personal injury cases are car accident cases. For years we have helped our client’s navigate typical car accident issues such as how to pay for medical care, recovering lost wages, and getting compensated for pain and suffering related to their car accident injures.
New Mexico truck accidents are a specialized area of law. Often times these semi truck accidents occur not just because a truck driver made a mistake, but because the semi truck company the truck driver works for did not properly train their driver, did not properly supervise their driver, or did not properly maintain the equipment used by their driver. Because there are volumes of trucking regulations that drivers and the companies they work for must follow, the New Mexico semi truck accident lawyers at the Fine Law Firm begin each case with a thorough investigation of not just the accident but all of the decisions, mistakes, and oversights that occurred well beforehand.
New Mexico motorcycle drivers are some of the most misunderstood drivers on our roads. Most motorists believe that motorcycle drivers are reckless dangerous risk takers. Many times, our motorcycle accident lawyers have seen the exact opposite. The reality is that many New Mexico motorcycle accidents occur because other drivers do not pay proper attention to the road, do not give motorcycles sufficient following distance, and simply fail to look carefully before making decisions such as changing lanes or pulling forward from an intersection.
Countless New Mexicans are injuries while on the clock at work. Under New Mexico law victims of a workplace accidents may be forced to pursue their case under workers compensation laws where their ability to recovery faces numerous limitations. However, our New Mexico workplace lawyers are trained to evaluate how an injury occurred including whether it was caused by someone other than a co-employee or employer (such as a worker for another company or subcontractor or a defective product). In such situations, an injured worker may be able to pursue the case without the same limitations as workers compensation law and be able to increase the total recovery.
Few individuals are more vulnerable to neglect and mistreatment than residents of nursing homes. Whether injured from improper medication, care, supervision, or neglect our New Mexico nursing home lawyers stay updated on the various rules are regulations that apply to nursing homes included staff to patient ratios, charting requirements and treatment plans to determine if a particular harm or injury suffered by a patient is actionable under New Mexico law.
The Fine Law Firm is one of the limited number of firms that handle medical malpractice cases. These cases can range from emergency room errors, surgical mistakes and delayed or failed diagnoses. Because a special set of laws apply to medical malpractice cases, our lawyers have been trained to carefully analyze these cases, determine what type of expert witnesses may be necessary, and to purse the cases both aggressively and thoughtfully.
