Las Cruces Personal Injury Attorney

Las Cruces Personal Injury Lawyer

We head to work or go out to eat with our family, and we don’t expect anything to go wrong. We assume other drivers are operating their vehicles with the same duty of care we are and that restaurant staff and management have provided a safe and hazard-free environment. But when these people, or others, are negligent in their duties, it can cause unnecessary accidents and often serious injuries to unsuspecting individuals just like you.

When another person’s negligence, carelessness, or recklessness causes you or a loved one injury, you have the right to file a lawsuit against those responsible. We understand that the claims process can be confusing, but a qualified Las Cruces personal injury lawyer can assist you.

Types of Cases We Handle

Personal injury accidents happen every day here in Doña Ana County, and they can range from a simple fender bender to something more serious, like a healthcare provider making a mistake with your medical care.

Our office handles a variety of these types of cases, including:

If you or someone you know has been affected by any of these incidents, you have legal recourse available to you. Our team at Barrera Law Group LLC takes cases just like yours every day, and we treat every case and every client with compassion and a desire for justice.

What You Should Do After an Injury Accident

If you’ve been injured due to someone else’s negligent actions, whether in a vehicle or at a store or other establishment, here are some good tips to follow to help your case:

  • Gather evidence: Get contact information from all those involved with the incident, including witness statements if available. If you’re in a vehicle collision, make sure to get the other driver’s insurance and driver’s license information.
  • Photograph the scene: Take as many pictures and videos as possible of the scene of the incident, your injuries, the injuries of any others involved, as well as all damage that occurred to vehicles or any other property.
  • Contact the police. If the situation warrants police involvement, such as a vehicle accident, or if it’s required by local law, make sure you call the necessary authorities and find out how you can get a copy of any police report that is filed.
  • Seek medical attention: Even if you think your injuries are minor, it’s best to see a doctor to make sure that there is nothing serious that you can’t see, as well as having official documentation of your injuries.
  • Contact an injury lawyer at Barrera Law Group LLC.

A good rule of thumb with any type of accident is to never admit fault of any kind. Follow the steps above to the best of your ability, and don’t hesitate to call our office today.

Benefits of Hiring an Attorney

If you’re thinking of reaching out to a lawyer for assistance with your claim, you may wonder what the process looks like, how long everything will take, and what your attorney will do that you can’t do yourself.

Here’s what you can expect when you have one of our qualified lawyers on your side.

Typical Process of an Injury Case

Although each case is unique, the overall case process usually looks like this:

  • Intake: You reach out to our team for a free consultation where we determine if your case would be a good fit for our law firm
  • Investigation: Your lawyer builds your case, gathers evidence, interviews witnesses, calculates the damages you’ve incurred, etc.
  • Negotiation: Your lawyer sends a demand letter to the responsible party or files a claim with the local court in an attempt to secure a settlement for compensation owed to you
  • Litigation: Your lawyer will take your case to trial if the responsible party refuses to admit fault or agree to a settlement. This usually doesn’t happen, but we’re prepared if it does.

Remember that you’re not alone during the legal process. Your lawyer will be by your side every step of the way, ready to explain everything and fight for justice for your injuries.

Holding Accountable Those Responsible

Depending on the location and nature of the incident that caused your injury, there could be multiple individuals or companies who could be at fault. For example, if you slipped and fell at a restaurant, the manager of the establishment and the building owner may both be responsible. Or, if you were in a motor vehicle accident and the at-fault driver was operating a work vehicle, you could pursue legal action not only against the driver but the company they work for as well.

This is why it is vital to your injury case that you involve a lawyer. They will know how to look for every tiny detail and piece of evidence to hold everyone involved accountable and to file your claim within the standard three-year time period offered by New Mexico’s statute of limitations.

Monetary Compensation for Your Injuries

Your lawyer will take all the evidence they’ve gathered, including medical bills, doctor’s notes, pay stubs, etc., to determine the severity of your injuries, as well as any property damage that may have occurred, how many days of work you’ve missed plus how many more you’re likely to miss and compile it to present to the responsible party and their lawyer.

Most victims of incidents like yours receive compensation for:

  • Medical bills (including continued doctor visits, medical devices, and prescription medications)
  • Therapy or rehabilitation
  • Lost income (current and future)
  • Loss of quality of life
  • Property damage (such as car repairs)
  • Pain and suffering
  • Mental anguish or emotional trauma

You shouldn’t have to suffer because of the negligent actions of another person.

Here at Barrera Law Group LLC, we understand how devastating it can be to suddenly be faced with bills, injuries, and other damages and not know what to do. Remember that our office is ready to help you with your case.
