Albuquerque Serious Injury Attorney
Albuquerque personal injury claims and lawsuits arise when people are injured by careless or intentional acts of others, or injured by products that are defective in some way. When someone is determined to be legally responsible for injuring another, under New Mexico law, they are liable for the injury and obligated to pay the injured person compensatory damages. Just as there can be many types of claims, each such personal injury case can result in entirely different types of damages.
Compensatory damages attempt to put an injured person back in the position he or she occupied before being injured. In some cases, punitive damages are also awarded in injury lawsuits. Punitive damages are intended to punish wrongdoers and to prevent those in a similar position from harming others.
There is no specific source to learn all about New Mexico injury law, but it is our sincere desire to have this website serve as a place to get people started in understanding their New Mexico personal injury rights and requirements in bringing a claim. Depending on the facts of each case, injury victims may have as little as 90 days to take action, or as long as 6 years and in some situations even longer. However, regardless of how long the law may allow for action to be taken in a personal injury case, our injury lawyers believe that immediate and aggressive action often results in the highest possible recovery.
