Workplace Injury Lawyer in New Mexico and Arizona
Suffering a workplace injury is frightening and can be debilitating. You’re worried that your injury will keep you from going back to work in the same capacity, and you’re also concerned about the mounting medical bills. Since it happened at work, you are likely entitled to workers’ compensation to pay your medical bills and replace some of your lost wages. However, if you aren’t eligible for workers’ compensation or another party is responsible, you might need to file a personal injury lawsuit. Then you can take the steps needed to recover damages for your injury.

Common Workplace Injuries
Our workplace injury lawyer represents a broad range of clients and injuries. Some common workplace injuries include:
- Slips and falls
- Struck by machinery
- Motor vehicle accidents
- Struck by falling objects
- Toxic chemical exposure
These injuries can lead to lifelong complications and even death. Consult with our attorney to determine if you are eligible for additional compensation for your injuries.
Filing Claims Against Third Parties
You also might have a claim against a third party due to your injury. In this instance, you will file a personal injury claim. Unlike a workers’ compensation claim, you have to prove fault to have a successful personal injury case. That means you must provide evidence that demonstrates the other party owed you a duty of care that was breached, causing the accident. The accident then led to damages, such as medical bills and lost wages.
For example, if you have an automobile accident while on the job, you might be able to file a personal injury lawsuit against the at-fault driver. Depending on your situation, you also might have a third-party claim against subcontractors, manufacturers, suppliers, and others. Consult with our workplace injury lawyer today to go over your options.
Why Choose Wood Injury Law?
Do You Have A Case?
Our workplace injury lawyer provides free consultations to help victims find out if they have a case. During your consultation, you’ll go over the facts of the case, explain your injuries, and more. In addition, the attorney will ask some questions to ensure the accident meets the criteria for a personal injury claim. If it does, the lawyer can then discuss your legal options. Then you can decide if you’d like to move forward and pursue damages for your injuries.
Damages In Personal Injury And Workers Comp Cases
The damages you can collect will differ depending on the type of claim you file. For example, workers’ compensation claims only cover medical bills, replace some lost wages, and provide disability benefits when applicable. However, you can receive compensation for all past and future lost wages and pursue non-economic damages when you file a personal injury claim. Consult with our workplace injury lawyer to find out if you have a personal injury or workers’ compensation claim. Then we can guide you through the process.
