A major vehicle accident in New Mexico can easily lead to catastrophic injuries, including burn injuries. Serious injury from such an accident may unfortunately result in permanent damage that may keep you from being able to return to work. Your injuries might also prevent you from performing your normal activities of daily living.
Besides suffering a burn injury, it is not uncommon for accident victims to experience blindness or brain damage. They may also lose limbs or end up becoming paralyzed. If you have suffered a serious injury in an accident, an experienced attorney can help you address the problems you are bound to face, such as permanent disability, medical care and both future and past rehabilitation expenses.
Other challenges you may face due to your injuries include lost earning potential and lost wages as well as the loss of your work benefits. You might also suffer mental anguish along with physical pain and suffering. In addition to pursuing full compensation for these damages, you may seek the reimbursement of damages such as disfigurement, scarring and the loss of the enjoyment of life.
A qualified attorney will focus on pursuing an outcome that is in your best interests following an accident-related serious injury. This means not automatically seeking a quick settlement simply because it appears convenient. Rather, your attorney should review all aspects of your particular case and make sure that all appropriate parties are named in your suit in order to maximize your recovery of damages. Liability has to be established to the satisfaction of the civil court before claims for financial damages will be adjudicated in New Mexico.
