Representing Clients Throughout New Mexico In A Variety Of Cases
There are a number of lawyers in New Mexico who will represent you if you or a family member has been seriously injured in an accident that was caused by somebody else.
At The Harvey & Foote Law Firm in Albuquerque, however, our experienced legal team approaches personal injury law from a more narrowly focused perspective. We represent victims who have suffered catastrophic injuries in accidents or from medical errors, as well as families who have lost a loved one and who are seeking compensation in wrongful death lawsuits.
A significant portion of our caseload also involves working with families whose loved ones have been victims of nursing home abuse or nursing home negligence. We work with clients throughout the state and have become one of the more active litigators of nursing home abuse cases in New Mexico.
Medical Malpractice Attorney In Santa Fe
Attorney Dusti Harvey has advocated for the victims of nursing home abuse for more than eight years. She began her efforts in that area following a successful stint as an attorney who worked on the same types of cases from the other side.
Prior to forming her own law firm in 2005, Ms. Harvey directed all aspects of litigation as in-house corporate counsel for Sun Healthcare Group, Inc., a national nursing home chain. For more than six years she led that company's alternative dispute resolution program, mediating more than 1,500 lawsuits across the U.S.
Her decision to represent families in cases of nursing home abuse and neglect came after her own grandmother entered a long-term care facility. That's when Harvey realized how little most family members know about their legal rights and how difficult it is for them to advocate for proper care for their loved ones.
An Empathetic Advocate Who Is A No-Nonsense Negotiator
Our law firm has helped a number of families hold New Mexico medical and nursing facilities accountable for negligence. We have recovered several multimillion-dollar settlements for our clients and produced important changes in some nursing homes' standard procedures in the process.
These cases can be emotionally and physically taxing. Our Albuquerque nursing home abuse lawyers are able to resolve the majority of cases without prolonged litigation, but we have established ourselves as trial attorneys who are always prepared to go to court if a fair agreement cannot be reached. That reputation for impeccable preparation allows us to negotiate from a position of strength.
