At the Kemmy Law Firm, our compassionate and skilled personal injury attorneys in Hobbs, NM will demand justice and compensation for what was done to you. We will do this by guiding you through the claims process.
1. Conducting an Independent Investigation
Before filing a lawsuit on your behalf, we want to have all of the facts. We perform an in-depth and independent investigation into the accident. We gather and analyze all of the available evidence.
2. Hiring Expert Witnesses
To support your claim against another individual or business, we may hire one or more expert witnesses. An expert may be able to testify regarding what caused the accident, who was at fault, the type and extent of your injuries, and the economic consequences of your injuries.
3. Filing the Complaint
The complaint, also called a petition, provides the court with the important details of your case, including who you are, who the defendant is, what happened, and how you were hurt.
4. Serving the Defendant(s)
The law requires that we provide the defendant(s) with proper notice of the lawsuit. This is an essential step in the litigation process, and if not performed properly, your case can be dismissed.
5. Receiving the Defendant’s Answer
Once the defendant receives the complaint, they have a few weeks to respond by filing an answer with the court. If the defendant ignores the complaint and does not file an appearance in court or an answer, you may be able to seek a default judgment.
6. Utilizing the Discovery Process
After the defendant answers the complaint, the next phase of litigation is the discovery process. This is how we will continue with our independent investigation. During discovery, we will exchange information and documentation with the other side. We can demand answers to questions by filing interrogatories, demands for documentation, and scheduling depositions.
7. Pre-Trial Motions & Settlement Negotiations
Once discovery is completed; we may file one or more pre-trial motions. This is when we address technical and procedural issues related to your case, and the judge may decide issues that influence what takes place at trial. We also may enter into settlement negotiations or agree to go through mediation or arbitration to resolve the claim.
If your personal injury claim is not resolved through a settlement or mediation, then the next step is to prepare for trial. During a trial, your trial lawyers, as well as attorneys for the defendant, will present their arguments supported by evidence, including your own testimony, your medical records, and expert witnesses’ testimony. The judge or a jury will decide if the defendant is responsible for your injuries, and if so, how much compensation you should receive.
It can be difficult to move on after an injury causing accident. There are medical costs, lost wages, and hidden expenses around every corner.
Through a personal injury lawsuit and insurance claim, we will fight hard for you to recover your:
