New Mexico Spinal Cord Injury Attorneys
Choose Top-Rated Albuquerque Spine Injury Lawyers Known for Results
Caused by motor vehicle accidents, falls, industrial accidents, and other catastrophic incidents, spinal cord injuries are devastating and may be permanent. If the spinal cord is severely damaged, a victim will most likely lose sensation, muscle control, and function below the point of injury. Everything that they have envisioned for their future may be put on hold or might now be impossible.
There is hope for a brighter future. Our New Mexico spinal cord injury lawyers are committed to making this a reality.
Rehabilitation, assistive devices, and in-home modifications and care can help a person with a spinal cord injury lead a productive, independent, and fulfilling life. But all of this can easily cost hundreds of thousands or even millions of dollars over a victim’s life. That is why we so strongly believe in helping spinal cord injury victims and their families recover complete compensation from at-fault parties.

Spinal Cord Injury FAQ
What should I do after a spinal cord injury in New Mexico?
If you were injured in any type of accident, you need to make your health a top priority. Seek medical attention as soon as possible, and follow your doctor’s orders. Seek out a specialist if needed. Once you’ve received the medical care you need, contact an attorney. You have specific rights and responsibilities when it comes to filing a spinal cord injury claim, and an experienced attorney can set you on the right track.
If you were injured at work, for example, you have only 15 days to inform your employer or your right to workers’ comp benefits could be jeopardized. If you were injured at work or in any other scenario, it will be important to have your attorney handle all communication with the insurance provider and other parties to ensure you are not wrongly blamed for the accident or pressured into accepting an unfairly low settlement. The right attorney will be there to protect your interests every step of the way. That’s the level of counsel you’ll find at Arnold & Itkin.
