If you have been injured in an accident, the damages caused by your injury are greater than the physical effects. An injury can disrupt every part of your life, and contribute to extensive financial distress as well. By filing a personal injury claim, you can recover the damages that you have suffered because of an accident.
We can assist you with personal injury cases such as:
Our attorneys are committed to protecting the rights of people who have been injured in an accident. We can help you gather evidence, file a claim with an insurance company, determine liability, calculate the full scope of your damages, and handle all aspects of your case. We also have significant trial experience and can assist you with litigation.
Following an on-the-job injury, you have a right to recover payment for your medical bills and other expenses. Workers’ compensation is a system that provides benefits to injured employees. However, workers’ compensation benefits are not guaranteed and you must file a claim in order to receive the benefits you deserve.
The Trenchard & Hoskins legal team can help you with every aspect of the workers’ compensation claim process. We will help you report your injury and begin the claims process, get the medical care you need, and negotiate with your employer and their workers’ compensation insurance company. Throughout the process, we will protect your rights and ensure you receive the benefits you deserve.
What kinds of damages can I get for my personal injury case?
Through a personal injury claim you can recover damages that have resulted from another person’s negligence. It is possible to recover damages for lost wages, future lost earning capacity, past and future medical care, pain and suffering, loss of enjoyment of life, loss of household service, and loss of consortium.
What kinds of benefits can I get for my workers' compensation case?
For a work-related injury sustained in the course and scope of your employment, you may recover benefits from your employer under New Mexico’s worker’s compensation laws. The amount of benefits you may receive may depend on a variety of factors, including your pre-injury wage, the body part that was injured, your age, education, and nature of your job, any loss in your capacity to perform physical labor, and any loss of use of the injured body part. Medical care related to the injury should be covered by your employer as well. In a workers compensation case, you CANNOT recover the types of damages available in a personal injury case, such as pain and suffering.
