The negligence of another can cause severe harm and devastation to a personal injury victim. When personal injuries cause serious or catastrophic injury, choosing the best serious injury attorney in Albuquerque is increasingly important.
Here are three reasons why it is especially important to choose the best serious injury attorney after a catastrophic injury.
Serious Injuries Often Require Long-Term Medical Treatment
When injuries are relatively minor in nature, victims still deserve legal compensation when another’s negligence caused the accident. That said, it is even more critical to receive compensation for serious injuries that may require years or even decades of medical treatment and care.
Severe, catastrophic injuries will require therapy, rehabilitation and perhaps disability accommodations and long-term personal care attendants. Even the wealthiest families could buckle under the strain of such costs, which is why serious injury victims who are wronged by another’s negligence are entitled to much-needed compensation. However, it is necessary for the injured person to carefully make sure that their health insurance is paying for their medical bills and that they are getting all of the follow-up treatment that has been recommended by their medical doctors. With serious injuries, this process takes time and careful preparation with an experienced personal injury attorney like myself. I have close to two decades of experience in handling serious personal injury cases in New Mexico.
Examples of serious or catastrophic injuries include:
- Traumatic brain injuries
- Organ failure
- Organ and nerve damage
- Spinal cord injuries
The Best Albuquerque Serious Injury Attorney Fights for Your Right to Maximum Compensation
Without the help of a trusted serious injury attorney who fights for accident victims, the victims and their families must deal with insurance companies and adjusters who prioritize profit over injured victims that are counting on the insurance company to fairly and adequately pay for all of their injuries and damages when the adjuster’s goal is to reduce the amount of money or damages that the insurance company pays out and many insurance companies base their adjuster’s compensation plans to how much they are meeting the insurance company’s goal of reducing payments to personal injury victims.
I started my career as an insurance lawyer who gained firsthand knowledge of the legal strategies insurance companies utilizes to minimize payouts made to accident victims. I use this knowledge and New Mexico law to seek the full extent of my client’s injuries and damages which often far exceeds what an insurance company will offer without legal representation standing by their side during the settlement process and on to a lawsuit if the insurance company does not offer a fair or reasonable settlement to which my client agrees.
Don’t accept a lowball offer from the insurance company without talking to me first. Depending on the severity of your serious injury, you may be entitled to compensation that includes the following:
- Physical pain and suffering
- Emotional suffering
- Current and future lost wages
- Medical and rehabilitation costs
- Home care and retrofitted modifications
- Funds for quality of life adjustments
Serious Injury Victims Get One Chance at Getting the Justice and Compensation They Need
I understand all too well that the lawyer serious injury victims choose is their one shot at receiving compensation for devastating injuries. In some cases, the compensation victims receive may need to last them for the duration of their life.
Serious injury victims deserve the very best Albuquerque serious injury attorney who has the proven track record to get the results families depend upon to be made whole.
I guarantee that I will get a higher offer than what you have received from an insurance company, or I will not charge an attorney fee. I also guarantee that no matter how high your medical bills are in the aftermath of a serious injury, you will get money in your pocket regardless of the insurance policy limit or I won’t charge a fee. Last, I also guarantee that you won’t be asked to sign an escalating fee agreement with the attorney contingency fee increasing in percentage based on the stage of the case and whether a lawsuit has been filed. I want my clients to feel confident in my legal advice. As is often the case with insurance companies today, filing suit is often necessary before any real settlement offers are made. The reason my attorney fee does not increase if I file a lawsuit is that I want my clients to feel confident that the legal advice they are receiving from me- such as filing suit in response to a settlement offer that is too low- is correct and what is best for them. I don’t want my clients asking themselves if the reason I am saying that it was not a fair settlement offer was so that I could file a lawsuit and charge a higher fee.
This means zero surprises regardless of whether your case is settled or goes to trial.
I offer these three guarantees to let my clients know that, while their lives may be forever changed by a serious injury, they have a lawyer who will stand up for them and make sure they aren’t rushed to settle their case to allow the injured person to receive the critical care that is needed and the compensation that is deserved.
