Albuquerque Personal Injury Lawyer

Looking for an Attorney After an Accident? Call (505) 906-6774.

Have you suffered a personal injury or lost a loved one due to the negligence, recklessness, or greed of another? Have you suffered a serious injury because a corporation, insurance company, hospital, or nursing home placed profits over safety?

If so, you may be facing issues such as:

  • Exorbitant medical bills and you don't know how you will pay them;
  • Lost wages and you don't know how you will support your family;
  • Despair; depression; physical and emotional pain and suffering;
  • Grief over the loss of a loved one.

At the Law Office of James H. Wood PC, our legal team understands the difficulties that people who have suffered serious injuries or who have lost a loved one endure.

Injustice In Personal Injury

One of the worst injustices facing our judicial system today is the failure to disclose to jurors that the defendants have liability insurance, their attorneys are hired and paid by insurance companies, and their insurance companies are calling the shots for the defense during the lawsuit. Most defendants have no risk at all during a lawsuit as long as they do what their insurance companies tell them to do.

Areas of Practice

Why Hire an Albuquerque Personal Injury Attorney?

One of the first questions that someone may ask in a personal injury case is "do I need an attorney?" If you or a loved one suffered serious injuries or death as a result of another's negligence, you need a personal injury attorney.

On the other hand, if you suffered a minor injury (for example, a bruise on your leg from a car wreck and the doctor says you will be fine), you probably do not need a personal injury attorney.

Know When to Hire an Injury Attorney

The second question that you may ask is "when do I hire a personal injury attorney?" If you or a loved has suffered serious injuries or death as a result of another's negligence, then you should consult with an attorney as soon as possible. In most personal injury cases, timing is very important. Witnesses need to be interviewed before their memories fade. Accident scenes need to be photographed and inspected before they are changed. And products or machinery need to be inspected or photographed before they are altered or repaired.

Should You Hire a Board-Certified Civil Trial Specialist?

Another question you may ask is "do I need a board certified attorney?" If you or a loved one suffered serious injuries or death as a result of another's negligence, the answer is "yes."

Becoming a Board Certified Trial Lawyer requires trying as lead counsel a significant number of jury trials, passing a rigorous written examination, and being peer reviewed every five years by judges and other attorneys practicing in the same field of law. James Wood is a Board Certified Civil Law Trial Specialist by the National Board of Trial Advocacy. He is also a Board Certified Personal Injury Lawyer by the Texas Board of Legal Specialization.
