What Are the Qualities of a Dependable Personal Injury Attorney?
After an accident where you sustained injuries and other damages, you may wonder if you’re going to need a personal injury lawyer. Having legal representation is the best way to protect your interests and to get the compensation you deserve. Your personal injury lawyer will build a strong claim on your behalf so you’re able to recover the damages you’ve lost.
While seeking out an attorney may feel like a daunting task, there are characteristics that they should exhibit that indicate they’re going to work hard and fight for you. They include:
- Experience. There are many specific areas of personal injury law. You want your lawyer to have experience in fighting cases like yours. They should be familiar with handling personal injury claims and seeking maximum compensation for their clients.
- Organization. Keeping an organized office and a reliable organization method means they’ll keep the important paperwork regarding your case safe. They will not lose vital documents or misplace anything of value. If you do notice disorganization, it may be time to look elsewhere for representation.
- Communication. Showing up on time for appointments, answering the phone, and returning emails all keep clients in the loop and there’s an open line of communication between the lawyer and their client. This way they can be on the same page of what’s happening and what’s coming up. You can rely on a lawyer who is prompt and respectful to show up for meetings, possible court dates, and to keep you informed.

The Benefits of Having New Mexico Personal Injury Lawyers
When you have an attorney from our law firm advocating for your rights, you can rest assured that we’re going to do everything we can to maximize your compensation. Typically, compensation can be split into economic and noneconomic damages.
Your financial losses are considered economic. If your injuries were severe enough that you had to stay in the hospital or undergo surgery, the bill for the medical treatment would fall under this category. When our New Mexico personal injury lawyers investigate your case, we’ll see how much you lost in financial costs. This includes what your injuries will continue to cost you in the future.
Noneconomic damages are a bit different as they do not correspond to a monetary loss. They’re still consequences from the accident. Living with painful injuries, feeling emotionally distressed from what happened, and dealing with how the injuries have impacted and will continue to impact your life are examples of noneconomic damages that your lawyer will fight for you to recover.
In some circumstances, punitive damages may apply to your case. These damages are not from what you’ve lost. They exist to punish the negligent party. However, there are specific qualifications that have to be met for you to recover punitive damages. In New Mexico, if the other party was malicious, willful, wanton, fraudulent, or acted in bad faith, then it may be possible for your lawyer to fight for these damages.
Seeking damages for a personal injury claim does have a time limit, called a statute of limitations. This amount of time may vary depending on your case. Your lawyer will be able to determine when this time started and how long you have to come forward.
