Seeking justice for an injury through civil litigation

After you have been hurt by someone else, your first thought may be about getting the medical attention you need at a New Mexico hospital. Following closely on the heels of that concern may be the cost of the care you need. If your injuries were caused by a person who acted carelessly, recklessly or negligently, the law might side with you in thinking that the one at fault should pay. We at Almanzar & Youngers, P.A., have experience working with clients who want to seek compensation through litigation.

How to determine negligence

When someone has been hurt or killed due to negligence, victims or their families have legal options for holding the negligent party accountable. However, proving negligence is more complicated than you might think. When determining whether negligence resulted in an accident, there are four general factors to be considered -- duty, breach, cause and harm.

Which health conditions can cause an auto crash?

From intoxication to distractions such as cell phone use, traffic collisions continue to happen for an array of reasons. However, it is crucial to focus on some of the other causes behind these wrecks, such as health conditions which may affect a driver's ability to safely operate his or her vehicle. Sadly, motor vehicle collisions have claimed many lives in recent years and they have also left far more victims with injuries that keep them from enjoying the quality of life they had beforehand.
