Personal Injury

Garcia Legal

meet with an Experienced Personal Injury lawyer

During this difficult time, it’s important to have a trusted attorney on your side to aggressively fight for your rights.

We are prepared to fight for you.

Personal injury victims can recover anything from lost wages to the cost of in-home care. However, under New Mexico’s comparative negligence system, the final amount that you receive is impacted by the amount of fault you are assigned for the accident. There are also damages caps, which limit the amount of damages for pain and suffering — known as noneconomic damages — you can receive in certain cases. On the other hand, economic damages, such as medical care, property damage and loss of wages, are fully compensable.

Accidents

Including collisions, drunk driving accidents, and trucking accidents. 

Product & Premises Liability

Injury resulting from unsafe products, commercial or residential properties such as slip and falls, dog bites, and more.

Recovering Damages

 

Under New Mexico’s comparative negligence system, the final amount that you receive is impacted by the amount of fault you are assigned for the accident. There are also damages caps, which limit the amount of damages for pain and suffering — known as noneconomic damages — you can receive in certain cases.

 

On the other hand, economic damages, such as medical care, property damage and loss of wages, are fully compensable.

We work hard every day to win just compensation for the clients we serve. Whether you are located in Los Lunas, Albuquerque or anywhere else in New Mexico, we are prepared to fight for you.

  • Drunk Driving

  • Trucking Accidents

  • Reckless Driving

  • Speeding

  • Distracted Driving

  • Weather Conditions

trucking accidents

Because trucks are heavier and larger than cars...

Accidents involving trucks tend to cause more severe injuries and have a higher fatality rate. Many trucking accidents can be avoided if truck drivers and responsible companies act with a minimum standard of care. When they do not, we help you prove those companies’ and individuals’ negligence and liability in cases involving:

  • Driver fatigue

  • Aggressive driving behavior

  • DUI/DWI

  • Unsafe road conditions, such as snow, ice, rain or fog

  • Unlicensed or untrained drivers

  • Truck rollovers

  • Oversized trucks

  • Overloaded trucks

  • Tire blowouts

  • Brake failure

  • Poor truck maintenance

  • Mechanical defects

  • Tractor-trailers and 18-wheelers

Serious about Holding

Drunk Drivers Accountable

It is illegal and extremely dangerous to operate a vehicle while under the influence, and the aftermath can be devastating. To ensure timely investigation of your claim, we schedule appointments on weekends or evenings, and visit your home or hospital bed if you're unable to come to our office.

Drunk driving accidents can be costly in many ways.

The law against intoxicated driving applies to cars, trucks, motorcycles, commercial vehicles, and boats. If you were injured in a drunk driving accident, focus on the immediate issue of regaining your health, and let us take care of the rest. 

traumatic brain injury

Do not ignore the symptoms of

traumatic brain injury (t.b.i.)

Which may include the following
  • Severe headache

  • Confusion and difficulty remembering events

  • Lightheadedness and dizziness

  • Blurred vision or tired eyes

  • Numbness or weakness on one side of the body

  • Ringing in the ears

  • Bad taste in the mouth

  • Unusual tiredness

After any impact to the head, it is important to seek medical attention. Even an injury with minor symptoms could potentially have serious consequences if left untreated.

Because these injuries can result in serious and long-lasting damage that affects your ability to perform every day activities, it is crucial to retain an experienced traumatic brain injury attorney to represent and protect your interests.

Those who have sustained a TBI may struggle with disabilities, including...
  • Speech and language deficits such as difficulty speaking, reading or writing

  • Memory loss

  • Partial or total vision loss

  • Loss of the sense of touch, smell, or taste

Brain Injuries can cause many complications.

Even when the victim appears outwardly healthy.

Take head injuries seriously and consult with an experienced attorney as soon as a head injury occurs.

 

Commercial and residential property owners and managers have a responsibility to keep their homes, stores and general grounds in good repair — or to give advance warning to visitors if there are known hazards to be avoided. When they fail to do so and you suffer harm as a result, you have the right to seek compensation.

Understanding the Statute of Limitations

Consult an attorney as soon as possible after being injured.

By immediately investigating your claim and preserving crucial evidence while it is still fresh, your attorney can gain valuable advantage when it comes to proving your case.

 

Additionally, New Mexico law stipulates that you must file your claim within set period of time after the injury. By missing this window of opportunity, known as the statutory deadline, you lose your right to recover compensation for your injuries.
