What is a Personal Injury?
Personal injury law deals with the legal rights of victims injured by someone else’s wrongful conduct. The premise behind personal injury law is holding people and companies financially accountable for their wrongful actions. Personal injury law is wholly separate from criminal law, which aims to punish offenders through the justice system.
Negligence is the core concept of personal injury law. Negligence is the failure to exercise reasonable care and hurting someone as a result. The hurt caused may be physical, emotional, or both. Common personal injury claims include:
- Car accidents;
- Truck accidents;
- Medical malpractice;
- Premises liability;
- Workplace accidents.
Some of the most common injuries arising in personal injury claims are:
- Head injuries and traumatic brain injuries (TBI);
- Back and spine injuries, including paralysis;
- Broken bones and fractures;
- Internal injuries; and
- Severe burns.
Personal Injury Compensation
Personal injuries are often severe and costly. Victims are left wondering how to pay for property damages, medical expenses, and household expenses. Personal injury law’s purpose is to return the victim to the position they were in before the accident.
While it is nearly impossible to return a victim to their pre-injury status, compensation for their injuries and losses does help manage expenses and recovery. Compensation in personal injury claims generally includes the following:
- Medical bills and rehabilitation;
- Lost wages;
- Loss of future income;
- Property damage;
- Medical equipment;
- Pain and suffering;
- Emotional distress;
- Scarring and disfigurement;
- Long-term disability; and
- Loss of enjoyment of life.
Courts can award a rare type of damages called punitive damages. Punitive damages are to punish a negligent party for extremely immoral or reckless behavior. Speak with an experienced personal injury attorney, like those at The Fine Law Firm, to get an explanation of specific types of damages and a damage assessment of your injury claim.
The Fine Law Firm never charges upfront fees, and we only get paid when we recover compensation for you. There is a time limit to file a personal injury claim in New Mexico, so call us today!
