Do I Need a Personal Injury Attorney?
You deserve fair and full payment for your injury, and our attorneys work tirelessly to make that happen. We’ll walk you through every step of the process. Here’s what you should know:
- The defendant’s insurance company will try to pay you the minimum amount. Our attorneys will fight for the maximum compensation.
- We use our intimate knowledge of personal injury law to build the strongest case possible while you focus on recovering from your injury.
- Our lawyers instill confidence and provide support from start to finish.
Can I Afford a Lawyer?
The short answer is yes. At Morgan & Morgan, we understand the stress that comes with an injury and we don’t want to add to it. That’s why we work based on contingency, meaning we don’t get paid unless we win the case. You’ll never pay out of your own pocket, so you won’t assume any risk at all.
What Types of Compensation Are Available?
The insurance company will likely overlook aspects of your case so they can get away with paying you less than they should. However, our personal injury lawyers see your case for what it’s really worth. Here are some of the factors we look at when determining its value:
- Current and ongoing medical expenses
- Lost wages from being unable to work
- Loss of the capacity to make a living
- Property damage incurred during the incident
- Pain and suffering including mental and emotional distress

How Can Albuquerque Personal Injury Lawyers Help You?
Our injury lawyers help individuals harmed by an individual or entity’s negligence or wrongful actions. They can help you navigate the legal system and fight for fair compensation for the injuries and damages you have suffered.
In detail, Morgan & Morgan injury lawyers can:
Help You Receive Adequate Medical Treatment
We can ensure you receive the medical treatment you need and help you find the right doctors and specialists. Our attorneys can assist you with navigating the potentially stressful process of obtaining medical benefits from insurance companies. We can also assess the long-term implications of your injuries and their impact on your work and home life.
Provide You With Personalized Legal Advice and Guidance
Our lawyers can translate complex legal language, ensuring you fully understand the legal process and know your rights and options. We can ensure that you are treated fairly by the legal system and can work hard to prevent insurance companies or other parties from taking advantage of you. Our personal injury attorneys can also review insurance policies and help you get the most out of them.
Investigate and Gather Evidence to Prove Your Case
Our lawyers can investigate and gather evidence to support your injury case. This may include interviewing witnesses, reviewing medical records, and consulting with experts. We can also photograph the accident scene and gather time-sensitive evidence, such as traffic camera footage.
File a Lawsuit on Your Behalf
Personal injury lawyers can help you with the complex process of filing a lawsuit. They can observe the various deadlines and requirements involved in filing a case and complete all the paperwork correctly.
Negotiate a Fair Settlement and Represent You at Trial
Personal injury lawyers can negotiate tenaciously for a fair out-of-court settlement with insurance companies. However, if a settlement cannot be reached, our injury attorneys can represent you powerfully in court. They can present the relevant evidence and argue your case compellingly in front of a judge and jury.
What Claims Do Injury Attorneys Handle?
Personal injury lawyers handle various claims, including car accidents, slips and falls, medical malpractice, and wrongful death. Such claims typically involve victims who suffered physical and emotional harm due to another person or entity's negligence or recklessness.
Motor Vehicle Accidents
Car accident claims are among the most common types of personal injury cases. These claims usually involve individuals injured in a car crash due to another driver’s carelessness. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), common reasons for accidents include:
- Distracted driving
- Following too closely
- Running traffic signals
- Aggressive lane changing
Driving under the influence and generally violating traffic laws can also play a major factor in accidents.
If you or a loved one got hurt in a traffic accident, Morgan & Morgan’s personal injury lawyers can gather evidence and build a case against the at-fault driver, allowing you to seek compensation for your injuries.
Slip and Fall Accidents
Slips and falls are also common injury claims, typically involving individuals who got hurt on someone else's property due to hazardous conditions. Hazards can include, among others:
- Wet floors
- Uneven surfaces
- Poor lighting
In premises liability claims, such as slips and falls, our Albuquerque injury lawyers can collect evidence proving a property owner’s negligence in maintaining their property.
Individuals who suffered harm due to a healthcare professional's negligence may have a medical malpractice claim. Medical negligence can include misdiagnosis, surgical errors, failure to provide proper care, and other circumstances. Personal injury lawyers can prove a doctor or nurse’s negligence and help clients recover compensation for their injuries.
Dangerous Drugs and Products
Individuals typically bring a defective product lawsuit against a manufacturer or seller of a dangerous product or drug that caused injury or damage. Claims usually arise due to one or several of the following issues:
- Mistakes during manufacturing
- Defective design
- False marketing
Affected consumer products include cars, electric appliances, medications, foods, children’s toys, and many others. Winning a dangerous product claim can be demanding as you might have to fight a large corporation with multiple lawyers on retainer. However, Morgan & Morgan’s personal injury lawyers know how to fight the big bullies and recover the compensation victims deserve.
Wrongful death claims involve individuals who have lost a loved one due to another person or entity's negligence or recklessness. Such claims are generally filed by the personal representative of the deceased person’s estate in New Mexico and can involve:
- Car accidents
- Medical malpractice
- Workplace accidents
- Dangerous drugs
- Defective products
- Nursing home neglect and abuse
Personal injury lawyers can help families prove that another party was at fault for the death of their loved one and fight for adequate compensation.
What Damages Could Victims Receive?
The costs of avoidable injuries to individuals and society are staggering. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) determined that expenses for all injuries in 2019, including healthcare and lost work time, amounted to $4.2 trillion. However, you deserve adequate compensation if someone else is responsible. Personal injury victims may receive various damages, including:
- Medical expenses: Reimbursement for any medical treatment, such as doctor visits, surgeries, prescription medication, and rehabilitation.
- Lost wages: Compensation for the income victims would have earned during their recovery period.
- Pain and suffering: Awards for victims’ emotional and physical anguish due to an injury.
- Loss of consortium: Damages the victim's spouse can recover for loss of companionship and services due to the injury.
- Future losses: Estimated future damages could include medical expenses, lost wages, and pain and suffering.
- Punitive damages: May be awarded by a court to punish the defendant for particularly egregious conduct and deter such behavior in the future.
The amount and types of compensation you may qualify for will vary depending on the specific circumstances of your case. An Albuquerque personal injury attorney at Morgan & Morgan can assess your accident’s circumstances, determine your damages, and calculate the worth of your claim.
How Do You Prove a Personal Injury Claim?
To prove a personal injury claim, you must demonstrate that another party’s negligence caused your injury. This involves showing that the responsible person or entity had a duty of care to you, that they breached that duty, and that this breach caused your injury.
To do this, you will need to gather and present evidence such as:
- Medical records and bills to document the extent of your injuries
- Witness statements from people who saw the incident or have knowledge of the events leading up to it
- Photographs or videos of the incident scene or the conditions that caused the injury
- Expert testimony from medical professionals or other experts to support your claim
- Additional relevant documentation, such as accident reports or insurance records.
Most importantly, particularly if you suffered significant or life-changing injuries: seek legal advice as soon as possible. A personal injury lawyer can help you understand the legal process and what is needed to prove your claim.
Do I Have a Personal Injury Case?
To determine whether you have a personal injury case, consider the following factors:
- Liability: Was the injury caused by the negligence or wrongdoing of another party?
- Damages: Did the injury result in physical harm, financial losses, or other damages?
If both factors are present, you may have a valid personal injury case and could pursue compensation. Your next best step is to consult with one of our personal injury lawyers to discuss the details of your situation and determine the best course of action.
Who Could I Sue in a Personal Injury Lawsuit?
In personal injury claims, defendants can be individuals or entities who have caused or contributed to the victim’s injury. This can include individuals, such as drivers in car accident cases, or entities, such as manufacturers or property owners in product liability or premises liability cases. Some injury claims involve multiple defendants.
The best way to determine who you could sue in your specific case is to get in touch with our personal injury attorneys in Albuquerque, who can analyze your accident and identify the liable party or parties.
What Do Personal Injury Lawyers in Albuquerque Charge?
Many personal injury attorneys charge on a contingency fee basis, which means they only get paid if they win your case. If they win, the attorney will typically take a percentage of the settlement or award as their fee, usually between 33 percent and 40 percent. Some attorneys may also charge additional fees for expenses, such as court costs or expert witness fees. Understanding the fee agreement with your attorney is critical before signing on the dotted line.
