You may be unable to work or perform simple household tasks, while racking up mounting medical debts. In many cases, it is the reckless actions of others that are ultimately responsible. The leading Albuquerque personal injury attorney at the Law Offices of Edward Chavez, Jr. can help you hold responsible parties accountable when accidental injuries occur. While you focus on your recovery, Ed focuses on getting you the compensation to which you are entitled.

Common Types of Personal Injury Cases

According to statistics from the New Mexico Department of Health , accidental injuries cause close to 200,000 people in our area to seek emergency medical care each year, with nearly 10,000 suffering injuries serious enough as to require hospitalization. As an experienced Albuquerque personal injury attorney, Edward Chavez, Jr. represents those who suffer serious, potentially disabling, and even life threatening injuries. These include:

  • Soft tissue injuries, such as muscle or tendon strains, sprains, and tears;

  • Broken bones and multiple fractures;

  • Serious cuts, burns and lacerations;

  • Abdominal injuries, resulting in damage to internal organs;

  • Back and neck injuries, resulting in herniated disks and fractured vertebrae;

  • Head injuries, resulting in concussion and traumatic brain injuries (TBI);

  • Spinal cord injuries, which can result in temporary or permanent paralysis.

The Department of Health reports that these injuries often result from slip and falls or getting struck by or against objects. They can also occur due to car, bike, and pedestrian accidents, or from defective products. In these situations, the reckless actions of others are often to blame, and those parties can be held liable for the damages you suffer.
