Post-accident Next Steps

No one has the right to dictate what you do next, after you have been in an accident. People will be skeptical of your story or not care enough to give you the compensation you deserve. The insurer or the perpetrator will do everything they can to give you as less money as possible. We offer legal protection and best-in-class options in situations like these.

In order to take care of yourself you must evaluate the cost of damages to gauge the amount of compensation that is owed to you. To do this, acquire as much knowledge about the specifics of the accident. We make the legal processes easier, with the help of one of our lawyers, as you file a personal injury claim. Do not hesitate to ask for assistance. We are able to assist at any point in time in the legal process.

Understanding Negligence and Personal Injury Law

Negligence is usually the cause of most personal injury cases. Negligence is defined as an action or lack thereof, in context to a set of standards to be followed, which resulted in significant injury or damage to others. You, your personal injury lawyer, or your personal injury may have to prove negligence to obtain compensation for you. The following are examples of negligence:

Types of Personal Injury Cases

Our lawyers can take on several types of personal injury cases. The following list includes some of the most common:

If your accident or injury was caused by the negligence of the other party involved, our personal injury lawyers will explain all the legal options you have to attain the most compensation.

Most Common Personal Injury Cases

There is not just one type of personal injury, and the type of injury may change depending on the personal situation of the victim. Accidents, such as automobile accidents, heavy machinery malfunctions, medical malpractice, and more, are all under the category of personal injury cases. These types of accidents are unique to each victim, as stated before. However, even the simplest of accidents, such as a slip and fall accident on a wet bathroom floor, can cause just as much damage as an automobile accident, under the right circumstances.

Common injuries in personal injury cases include:

In order to file a personal injury claim, the perpetrator does not have to be involved directly or physically. An accident can be caused indirectly by a catalyst or action that set off a motion of events that caused your injury

Determining the cause of events, in relation to the other party involved, may take research and time. It is the pleasure of our Albuquerque personal injury lawyers at Law Offices of Erika E. Anderson to assist with these rigorous tasks. Over the course of our legal career, our lawyers have helped clients who have suffered virtually every injury possible. We empathize with you and know how to deal with unhelpful insurance companies.

We will do everything in our power to find the necessary evidence to reveal the truth, which includes obtaining medical documents, speaking to eyewitnesses, bringing in experts to recreate the accident scene, having forensic evidence examined, and more.

Damages That Qualify For Settlements

Regardless of the nature of the accident or who was responsible, our team of attorneys will work to reveal the truth in a court of law. The compensation awarded in these cases can be for many types of loss, pain, suffering, and inconvenience. These cases are including, but not limited to, the following:

Calculating the cost of damages is highly important. Once you settle with an insurer for an amount that might not have been sufficient, further compensation can be extremely difficult to attain.

This is why we recommend you contact one of our experienced lawyers. We can calculate all of the damages you sustained and ensure all of them are factored into your settlement, in order to avoid a situation like this.

Hire A Lawyer Before You Settle

Insurance companies will often try to convince you that the injuries and damages you suffered are not worth a large amount of compensation. They may also tell you that hiring a lawyer is not worth your time or energy and that you should settle with them per their terms and requirements. While insurance companies may seem like they have your best interests at heart, the truth is that they do not.
There is no accurate way to assess the worth of your settlement, without first reviewing the details of your case. Most insurance companies can severely undervalue how much your worth should actually be. Never settle for less and always fight to receive a fair settlement that covers your damages properly.

Statute of Limitations for Personal Injury Claims

Referencing the Official Code of New Mexico NMSA-37-1-8, a three years statute of limitations exists on personal injury cases that do not involve a government organization, starting the moment your accident occurs. For cases involving a government organization, the statute of limitation is two years. While no personal injury cases are guaranteed to pay out, a lawyer can give you peace of mind knowing that somebody is on your team moving forward.
