Your Best Chance At Success
Our founding lawyer, Aaron Garrett, is a New Mexico native. He has dedicated his career to getting injured people the compensation they deserve. Early in his career, he worked as a workers’ compensation attorney on the other side of the courtroom, fighting employee claims on behalf of employers. This experience makes him uniquely qualified to help you. He knows how lawyers representing businesses build legal strategies in workers’ comp and personal injury claims; he uses this knowledge to tailor his strategy for your case.
Our lawyers help people get compensation for their injuries. They assist clients with cases involving injuries caused by many types of accidents.
For instance, a slip-and-fall is a type of premises liability case. The manager of a property has the responsibility to keep it free and clear of obstacles, so, if you were injured by their negligence, then you could receive compensation.
Accidents involving cars, trucks and motorcycles can result in serious injuries and property damage. Our team will fight on your behalf for the money you deserve after a motor vehicle collision.
Your workplace should be safe, but when you receive injuries at work, the law is there to hold your employer accountable. Our attorneys will investigate your case and gather the proof needed to take your employer all the way to court, if necessary.
Our lawyers also can help you appeal denied benefits. If your insurance refuses to cover something necessary, like medicine or treatment, then our team will assist you in navigating the appeals process in an effort to help you get you what you need.
