Skillful attorney represents victims of motor vehicle crashes
Motor vehicle accidents, including vehicle rollovers, T-bone crashes and other frightening incidents, are some of the most common reasons that personal injury lawsuits are filed. These accidents are often caused by distracted, intoxicated or simply careless drivers. Poor road conditions and malfunctions of vehicle parts are also sometimes responsible. If you have been injured in an auto accident, motorcycle crash, as a pedestrian or were in another type of vehicle crash, I will examine the evidence involved to determine who was at fault for the accident and bring all my firm’s resources toward holding them accountable.
Accomplished lawyer aids individuals hurt in falls on another party’s property
Slip and falls are accidents that happen on another person’s property. They are generally due to dangerous conditions that the property owner should have corrected but did not. Poor lighting, wet floors, cracked sidewalks and a variety of other property conditions can cause slip and fall accidents. However, proving fault in these premises liability cases can be very difficult. Plaintiffs must prove that the condition was dangerous, the property owner knew of the dangers and did nothing to correct it. I have extensive experience proving fault in these cases that I will put to work on your case.
Effective counselor takes on cases involving dog bite injuries
To prove liability in a dog bite case, it must be shown that the owner knew the dog was potentially dangerous but didn’t adequately control the dog. If the dog has previously bitten someone else, called the “one-bite” rule, or has shown other signs of aggression toward people, this evidence may be used to prove the dog was aggressive. I have an in-depth understanding of common defenses that dog owners use in bite cases, including claiming they had no idea that their dog was aggressive. I will bring this knowledge when aiming to prove liability in your case.
New Mexico statute of limitations for filing personal injury claims
New Mexico has a three-year statute of limitations for filing personal injury claims. The clock typically begins running on the date the injury is sustained or the date the injury is discovered. There are some situations, though, when the time limit may be different. I will look at the facts of your accident and advise you about the filing deadline in your unique case.
