Battling Insurance Companies
In most personal injury cases, suing an individual translates into suing their insurance company. When going up against an insurance company, victims should always be wary of their intentions or their perceived concern. Attorneys for the insurance company prioritize the agency’s bottom line and often attempt to take advantage of an uninformed plaintiff.
Without a seasoned personal injury by your side, you can end up being cheated by insurance companies, especially when you discover later that you still need medical attention. We know their techniques and how to win the best possible outcome for our clients.
Car and Motorcycle Accidents
Many personal injury lawsuits in Albuquerque NM come as a result of accidents connected to either a car or motorcycle. When it comes to car accidents, you don’t even have to be inside a vehicle to suffer injuries or death. That’s because pedestrians and cyclists are often at danger from drivers who run red lights, sharply cut corners or simply go high above the posted speed limit.
Personal injury victims can also be passengers inside a car that’s being driven in an irresponsible manner, a harrowing prospect that can also lead to severe injuries and even death.
Car accidents in the state of New Mexico remain an ever-present danger, with an average of more than one death per day from such mishaps being a stark reality. That demonstrates the wisdom in having a passionate voice within the legal system who can advocate on your behalf in these types of scenarios.
For those who enjoy riding the open road in their motorcycle, such happiness can be abruptly shattered. The cause comes from drivers who fail to take into account that paying extra attention to bikers and cyclists can help keep them safe. Looking twice is a standard driver safety tip with regard to cyclists, yet it’s a philosophy that’s routinely ignored.
Motorcycle accidents can be especially deadly as riders have limited protections, other than a helmet. Even that may not be enough, with a wide spectrum of painful and potentially lethal injuries the end result. Recovering from such injuries can take years or even a lifetime, a prospect that deserves compensation for the victims.
