Personal Injury

Personal Injury Law

Personal Injury Lawyer In Carlsbad New MexicoPeople who are injured or killed as the result of an act of negligence have the right, under law, to pursue compensation for damages from the party who committed the act. Negligence is essentially an action (or inaction) in which another party failed to take reasonable care to protect the health, safety and life of another person.

An injury, whether caused by a car accident, an act of medical negligence, or due to the use of a commercial product, will allow the victim to file a claim or lawsuit against the party(ies) responsible. Each case is different, and some larger cases involving many victims become class actions, such as cases of dangerous drugs that caused injury, illness or death. Others may involve a commercial insurance company, such as cases of trucking accidents, while others could involve the manufacturer or retailer of a product that once purchased, led to serious injuries.
