Albuquerque Emergency Departments Stay Busy Treating Accident Injuries
Injury accidents are more common than you may realize. Almost any type of incident that can occur because of someone else’s careless actions falls into this category. Falls, car accidents, motorcycle crashes, and even defective product injuries are all examples of injuries that might be compensable under New Mexico’s personal injury laws.
The New Mexico Department of Health reported 774,896 visits to emergency departments statewide in 2013. According to the Department of Health report, unintentional injuries — not including traffic accidents — led to 150,873 emergency department visits in 2013. Almost a third of these visits were for the purpose of evaluating injuries after a slip or trip and fall.
In addition, there were:
- 15,515 traffic-related injuries evaluated in emergency departments statewide during 2013
- 827 motorcycle accident injuries requiring emergency care in 2013
- Bicycle (1,684) and pedestrian accidents (570) also ranked among the top causes of emergency department visits in 2013
Damages Recoverable in an Injury Claim
While every personal injury case is different, we can help you understand the types of damages you may be able to recover if you can negotiate a fair settlement or win an award in court. You may be entitled to compensation for:
- Medical care costs
- Prescription drug and pain management costs
- Rehabilitation and other therapies
- Ongoing and future care costs
- Lost wages
- Diminished earning capacity
- Repair or replacement of any damaged personal property
- Other out-of-pocket costs
- Loss of household services
- Pain and suffering
- Mental anguish
- Other emotional damages
Many people try to handle negotiating a settlement for their personal injury claim on their own. While this is possible, it is not advisable. We highly recommend letting us look over your case before you sign an agreement with the insurance company. We know the tactics insurance companies often use to reduce payouts and limit the amount you can recover.
In many cases, we can identify additional damages you did not know were available, preventing you from losing out on money you deserve.
Wrongful Death Actions Following an Injury Accident
If you lost your spouse, child, or parent in an accident, we can look into filing a wrongful death claim to get you the compensation you need to cover your expenses and losses. This may include:
- Funeral and burial costs
- Loss of household services
- Loss of future income
- Your mental anguish
- Other emotional damages
