Representing Victims of Personal Injuries in Roswell

When a victim becomes injured or killed because of another party’s negligence or intentional act, the victim may have a valid personal injury case. Personal injury cases are often settled out of court without a formal lawsuit. However, some personal injuries will go to mediation, arbitration, or trial before a judge. Some personal injury cases involve minimal damage, meaning there isn’t much money involved. However, other cases involve millions of damages, including medical expenses. 

If you’ve been injured in a personal injury accident, you must file a claim before the statute of limitations expires, or you’ll lose the right to pursue a lawsuit. Navigating the legal system can be challenging, and hiring an experienced personal injury attorney who can pursue the best outcome in your case is essential. The attorneys at Hunt Law have experience representing clients in a wide range of personal injury cases, including, but not limited to, the following:

Trucking and Motor Vehicle Accident Attorneys

Car, truck, motorcycle, bicycle, and pedestrian accidents are among the most common causes of preventable personal injuries. The causes of motor vehicle accidents range from distracted driving to the influence of alcohol or controlled substances. Improperly loaded semi-trucks and fatigued and untrained truck drivers can cause devastating truck accidents. If you or your loved one have been seriously injured in a motor vehicle accident in Roswell, you may be entitled to compensation through a personal injury lawsuit. 

Under New Mexico law, negligent and reckless drivers are financially liable for the injuries resulting from car accidents caused by their negligence.

Roswell Wrongful Death Attorneys

Losing a loved one can be devastating, and wrongful deaths caused by another negligent party can be especially painful. Surviving family members may be able to pursue justice for the loss of their loved one through a wrongful death lawsuit. If another party’s negligent, reckless, or intentional conduct caused your loved one’s death, the attorneys at Hunt Law will stand by you through this challenging time. We will pursue the full compensation your family deserves. 

The personal representative of the deceased family member’s estate can pursue a wrongful death lawsuit. Although no amount of money can replace your loved one’s life, a wrongful death lawsuit can help your family obtain justice, a sense of peace, and financial compensation. Through a wrongful death lawsuit, families can recover the following damages:

  • Past and future lost wages and benefits
  • Medical expenses related to the illness before the death
  • Loss of inheritance
  • Loss of companionship
  • The financial contributions of the deceased person to the household
  • Mental anguish due to the death of a child, spouse, or parent
  • Reasonable burial and funeral expenses
  • Pain and suffering experienced by the deceased before death

Pursuing Maximum Compensation for Catastrophic Injury Victims

A catastrophic injury is a physical injury or illness that has a considerable impact on the victim and requires considerable, ongoing medical treatment. Catastrophic injuries may not always be permanent, but healing can take months or years. The total amount of the injury may not be known for a significant length of time. The effects of these injuries may be long-lasting, both physically and emotionally. Examples of catastrophic injuries caused by personal injury accidents include the following:

Many catastrophic injuries affect multiple body systems, including gastrointestinal, central nervous system, urinary, respiratory, excretory, circulatory, reproductive, and others. Catastrophic injuries frequently result in the need for ongoing medical treatment over a person’s lifetime. Treatment for TBIs and spinal cord injuries can result in millions of dollars in medical expenses. Victims of catastrophic injuries may not be able to return to work. The attorneys at Hunt Law work with financial and medical experts to carefully value the full extent of damages in catastrophic injury cases.

Roswell Medical Malpractice Attorneys

A medical malpractice lawsuit occurs when a doctor, hospital, or other medical professional engages in medical negligence and injuries to the patient. Examples of medical malpractice cases include misdiagnosis, birth injuries, emergency room errors, medical device injuries, nursing home neglect, and post-surgical infection. Speaking to an attorney as soon as possible is important if a negligent medical professional has injured you. Medical malpractice cases require significant research and careful preparation to be successfully litigated.
