Personal injury law is generally defined as the area of the law which provides protections and compensation to victims or survivors for death, harm or damage to a person. The damage or harm may be physical, emotional, or both.
A personal injury lawyer is an attorney specializing in handling cases and seeking compensation for harms and losses suffered by their clients.
A personal injury claim arises when someone breaks a rule, whether it's a rule of the road, a rule of law, or a safety rule, and causes harm or loss to someone else.
Not every personal injury claim will result in a lawsuit. If a tortfeasor, the person responsible for injuring you, accepts responsibility and seeks to fairly resolve the damages or harms caused, then we will most likely not have to file a formal lawsuit. However, if the tortfeasor is not fully accepting of liability, attempts to avoid paying for the full amount of harms and losses they have caused, or does not seek to fairly resolve the claim, then formal litigation may be required. We may have to file a lawsuit and put the matter before a judge or jury to force the tortfeasor to accept responsibility and accountability.

The State of New Mexico, officers of the Albuquerque Police Department, Santa Fe Police Department, Deputies with the Bernalillo County Sheriff's Office, to name a few, have an awesome power; a power to potentially right wrongs, but also a power to potentially destroy lives - the power to formally accuse; the power to charge someone with a crime. The power to mark your name and reputation for a lifetime. Like any other power, it can be mishandled or abused. But just as bad, well-intended police officers and deputies can be misinformed or mislead by witnesses or people with an axe to grind. Officers can be poorly trained or ill-equipped to fully and properly investigate alleged crimes. They can make mistakes too. They can fail to follow the rules, standard operating procedures, or the law in the manner and method of their investigation. You need a strong criminal defense attorney to stand between you and the juggernaut of the State of New Mexico.Your name, your reputation, your freedom is one the line.
