What a Rio Rancho Personal Injury Attorney Can Do for You

Experienced personal injury attorneys, like those at The Fine Law Firm, can ensure you recover compensation for losses. We use our knowledge of personal injury laws, our considerable resources, and our legal skills, to build your injury claim as well as do the following:

  • Personally handle your case and address all of your questions
  • Calculate and document all of your financial, medical, and property losses
  • File all court documents, insurance claims, and other paperwork correctly
  • Gather any needed evidence
  • Interview necessary witnesses
  • Represent you during negotiations with insurance companies
  • If required, take your case to trial before a judge or jury

Insurance companies are businesses; therefore, their priority is in lowering their costs and increasing their profits. Never accept a settlement from an insurance company without speaking with an experienced personal injury attorney. You may be signing away your right to further compensation.

What is a Personal Injury Claim?

A personal injury claim is a civil legal claim that occurs when one person suffers an injury due to the negligence or recklessness of another. Generally, the at-fault person’s insurance company pays compensation to the injured person for the following:

  • Medical expenses
  • Costs of future medical expenses
  • Property damage
  • Lost wages
  • Loss of future earning capacity
  • Pain and suffering
  • Mental and emotional trauma

Most personal injury claims resolve during an informal settlement proceeding. When settlement talks fail, a personal injury attorney files a formal lawsuit in civil court. In New Mexico, there is a time period, or statute of limitations, to file a personal injury lawsuit of three years.

Types of Personal Injury Claims

Personal injury claims involve a wide variety of circumstances. Some of the more common accidents that result in personal injury claims include, but are not limited to, the following:

  • Car accidents
  • Truck accidents
  • Medical malpractice
  • Premises liability
  • Workplace accidents
