We have all seen the commercials on TV, advising us that if we were hurt in an accident in New Mexico, we should call a personal injury attorney. While they may seem corny, the advice is right on target. Any time you are a victim of someone else’s negligence, it is always a good idea to consult with a personal injury lawyer. Even if you are unsure you want to sue, a personal injury lawyer can help protect your rights. None of us is immune from making poor choices in life. When those decisions lead to the pain and suffering of others, we need to be held accountable. A personal injury lawyer can help.
Several kinds of personal injuries may require the representation of a skilled personal injury attorney in New Mexico.
New Mexico has strict timelines for personal injury claims known as a statute of limitations. Victims have three years from the date the injury occurred to file a personal injury lawsuit. That time frame is reduced to two years if the negligent party is a government entity. If you are the surviving family member of a victim, you have three years from the date of the person’s death to file a wrongful death lawsuit. For accidents that caused property damage, victims have four years from the date of the accident to file their claim.
These strict timelines are why it is important to consult with a personal injury attorney the minute you are injured due to someone else’s carelessness. Even if you are unsure you will file a lawsuit, it is a good idea to have a personal injury attorney. You can be certain the negligent party – especially businesses and large corporations – will have an entire legal team behind them. We can make sure you are not pressured into accepting a settlement for your injuries. We also can gather supporting evidence should future legal action be needed.
