Albuquerque & Texas Car Accident Lawyers



More than 3,500,000 people in the United States have died in accidents involving motor vehicles since 1899. Although the number of motor vehicle-related fatalities in the US has decreased in recent years, statistics remain troubling. According to the Texas Department of Transportation, 3,377 individuals died in motor vehicle crashes in the State of Texas in 2013 alone. Hundreds more die in car crashes annually in the State of New Mexico.

These numbers, of course, don’t include the thousands of individuals who survive such accidents but sustain catastrophic injuries in the process. If you or a member of your family has been catastrophically injured in a car crash, or if you have a lost a loved one due to a motor vehicle accident, contact us today to schedule a free initial consultation about your legal options. We can help you determine who may be responsible for ab accident and assist you in filing a lawsuit so that you and your family can get the financial compensation you deserve.


By definition, a catastrophic injury is one that occurs suddenly and has long-lasting or permanent consequences for the victim. Often catastrophic injuries involve some component of the central nervous system, such as the spinal cord or brain, but others involve amputation, dismemberment, bone fractures, severe burns, or head trauma. Catastrophic injuries are not unique to car crashes, either. Acts of medical malpractice, oil field accidents, and other tragedies can all cause catastrophic injuries as well.

Naturally, the economic costs of a catastrophic injury can be staggering. Many of those persons so injured can never go back to work and require expensive medical care for the rest of their lives. For most victims and their families, this financial burden is too high to take on alone. That’s why it’s so important to make sure you’re doing everything you can to get the maximum financial compensation that the law allows if you or a family member has suffered a catastrophic injury in an accident in Albuquerque or the greater Midland-Odessa area.


When you partner with a good auto accident attorney, you should expect that they will guide you through the process of a filing your insurance claim and be willing to go to court on your behalf if needed. Most insurance claims, of course, never reach the trial phase, but if you end up having to litigate your claim, it’s important for you to be working with a car accident lawyer who has a track record of success when it comes to getting compensation for their clients in civil court. What’s more, when an insurance company makes an offer during negotiations, it is in your interest to consult an attorney before you decide to accept it or not. Some insurance companies are willing to play fair and offer an accident victim a fair settlement right at the beginning of negotiating a claim, but the only way to know for sure that you’re getting the compensation you deserve is to ask an experienced auto accident attorney as soon as possible.


The road to recovery after a catastrophic injury can seem impossibly long. In some cases, accident victims have to come to terms with the fact that their lives will never be the same. No amount of financial compensation or legal expertise can change that, but by taking action sooner rather than later when it comes to your personal injury claim, you’ll be able to let yourself and your family concentrate on your emotional and physical healing rather than worrying about unpaid bills, lost wages, and hostile claims examiners.
