How Much Will It Cost Me to Get a Personal Injury Lawyer in Artesia?
Most personal injury law firms, including Fadduol, Cluff, Hardy & Conaway, P.C., accept cases on a contingency fee basis. This means that you do not pay any legal fees up-front or out-of-pocket. We do not collect legal fees until and unless we recover compensation for your injuries. Whether we negotiate a settlement with the insurance company or win your case in civil court, we take all of our legal fees from the settlement.
Your consultation and case analysis are also free. This lets us answer your questions and provide the information you need to get started with the legal process.
How Long Do I Have to File a Personal Injury Claim?
In most cases, the New Mexico personal injury statute of limitations requires you to take legal action within three years of the date of your injury. If a government entity was at fault for your injuries, you have only two years to take action and you may have to file notice of your claim in as little as 90 days after you sustained an injury. For a wrongful death claim, you must file a lawsuit within three years from the date of the victim’s death.
Because failing to file your claim by the statute of limitations can prevent you from ever making the claim, it is important that you contact an attorney as soon as possible to begin the claims process and ensure the statute of limitations is met.
How Much Is My Artesia Personal Injury Claim Worth?
The value of your case will depend on several factors. Because every client is unique, attorneys cannot reasonably estimate any average Artesia personal injury settlement value. The best way to determine the potential value of your claim is to discuss the details of your case with an attorney.
You could be eligible to recover compensation for some or all of the following.
- Emergency medical transport,
- Emergency room treatment,
- Hospital stays,
- Physical therapy,
- Medications and medical devices,
- Lost income,
- Lost benefits and opportunities,
- Emotional trauma, and
- Pain and suffering.
Depending on how your injuries will affect your future and your ability to return to your job, you might have the legal right to pursue compensation for future lost income and lost earning capacity. If you suffered any permanent injuries, disability, or disfigurement, you might also have a claim for diminished quality of life.
If you lost a loved one, we can assist you with a wrongful death claim. You could be entitled to compensation for your loved one’s funeral expenses as well as your emotional and financial losses, including pain and suffering.
