How a Spinal Cord Injury Attorney Helps Injured Victims

A severe spinal cord injury is a life-changing event. We’ve handled numerous complex spinal cord injury cases in Bernalillo County—enough to know how important the outcome of a personal injury claim is to the spinal cord injury survivor.

When you work with a spinal cord injury attorney to file a civil lawsuit against the at-fault party, you are requesting that the person (or other entity) who caused your accident repay you for the damages you suffered because of their negligence. It is typically the insurance company of the at-fault party that will provide you with financial compensation.

This financial award goes to cover losses like medical expenses, pain and suffering, lost wages, reduced earning capacity, and more. A spinal cord injury claim not only ensures the liable party takes financial responsibility for the damages. It also holds the negligent party legally accountable under New Mexico law, and can prevent future instances of similar harm from occurring.

A spinal cord injury lawyer helps clients through this legal process of seeking justice.
