Severe accidents often result in serious personal injuries that may result in death, disfigurement, loss of bodily functions and similarly catastrophic consequences. Injuries of this magnitude can require years of care or may even permanently alter the trajectory of a victim’s life. New Mexico families grappling with the potential ramifications of a serious accident need the help of Albuquerque’s best serious injury attorney.
Here are three ways the best serious injury attorney for your Albuquerque accident will help your case and legal claim.
The Best Serious Injury Attorney Knows the Value of Your Legal Claim
The nature of an insurance company’s business model is to limit payouts to victims. If you or a loved one has been in a serious accident, know that the insurance company does not want to compensate your family in a way that ensures your loved one will have the medical care and treatment needed for the possibility of a lifetime of medical care.
As a former insurance attorney, I have seen firsthand the ways in which an insurance company may try to undermine the value of a legal claim. Do not agree to a settlement offer without contacting me first. I will use my knowledge as a former insurance lawyer to make sure you have the legal representation needed to receive the full compensation and benefits your serious injuries deserve.
One way I help maximize the value of a serious injury claim is by pursuing pain and suffering compensation for my clients.
Serious Injuries Often Warrant Pain and Suffering Compensation
Thanks to a study conducted by Northwestern University’s Law Review, the legal world has a basic understanding that an estimated 50 percent of damages awarded in personal injury cases are for “pain and suffering”. It is important to note that pain and suffering damages are not based on an easy to assess economic loss that an injured victim has suffered. For example, an economic assessment for medical bills of $30,000 provides a clear economic figure for determining an accident victim’s compensation.
By contrast, pain and suffering damages are meant to provide monetary compensation for the present and future pain and suffering victim experiences because of their serious accident injuries. Unlike compensation for medical bills and expenses, pain and suffering compensation is less concrete as there is not a clear economic dollar amount that adequately compensates for pain and suffering harm. For this reason, pain and suffering are viewed as non-economic damages.
The reality of non-economic damages in New Mexico is that the state generally does not place a limit on how much compensation can be pursued or obtained for pain and suffering. The primary exception to this general principle is medical malpractice, which caps non-economic damages like pain and suffering to a $600,000 maximum for healthcare providers that are qualified under the New Mexico Medical Malpractice Act https://law.justia.com/codes/new-mexico/2006/nmrc/jd_ch41art5-ee0d.html
As such, the best serious injury attorney is uniquely capable of increasing a victim’s compensation for pain and suffering damages by building a strong case that shows a significant amount of pain and suffering compensation is deserved for the accident victim.
