Valuing my New Mexico Auto Accident Case?

Understanding Pain and Suffering in New Mexico Auto Accidents

Pain and suffering is usually the largest part of a damages award that victims of New Mexico auto accidents may be entitled to.  While many people may have heard of pain and suffering before, and you may believe you know what it means, you may actually be surprised that pain and suffering is broken down in several difference aspects that are important in your case.  This is because pain and suffering could be everything from the moment of your accident until the estimated time of your death.  Or in some wrongful death cases, pain and suffering may even be measured by the moment when a victim realizes he or she is about to be mortally injured and is in fact mortally injured--known as pre-impact terror.  Learn more from our New Mexico auto accident lawyers in our article here.
