Personal Injury Lawyers in New Mexico
Personal injury law deals with any harm caused to the body, mind, or emotions of a person. Personal injury law does not apply to property unless damage to that property has also damaged the body, mind, or emotions of that person. The field of personal injury law is very broad and contains many areas that are deemed personal injuries. Most personal injury lawsuits are filed in order to receive compensation for damage incurred physically or mentally and for restitution (repair or replacement) of those damages.
In personal injury law, damages are defined as costs and losses that have occurred as the result of an injury. These may include medical costs, time out of work, emotional distress, pain and suffering, and property damages as the result of an injury. In addition to these damages, the injured person may also seek compensation for any effects of the injury that will last the rest of his or her lifetime.
Damages often exist in several forms that are compounded together in the course of a lawsuit. One of the reasons why personal injury attorneys are so necessary in this process is that they have the expertise necessary to make sure that any damages that may have occurred are accounted for. Many people do not know what to consider as their damages and as a result expect much less in a personal injury settlement than what they truly deserve.
Liability is the legal term for responsibility. A person who is liable for something is responsible. In personal injury lawsuits, an injured person seeking compensation must prove that the party being sued is liable for any of the damages that have been incurred as a result of an incident, accidental or not.
