A great number of challenges can arise from an injury sustained or a wrongful death in the workplace. Workers' compensation is usually an option, but some New Mexico employers do not carry workers' compensation insurance. If you have suffered an on-the-job injury or lost a family member in any case where negligence, carelessness, or a defective product was involved, you may have options beyond workers' compensation. It is important to consult with an experienced workplace injury lawyer whether you have recently been injured or just begun the path to recovery.
At Sommerman & Quesada, L.L.P., we work closely with clients to understand the particular needs and unique circumstances of their cases. If you are unable to work, it may be difficult to provide for yourself or your family. A death in the family will cause a significant reduction in household income besides the loss of companionship and other burdens. We help clients find appropriate medical care, assess options, and recover fair and just compensation for the costs of workplace accidents caused by negligence. Our Dallas-based attorneys are highly committed to providing personalized service to each client.
