Santa Fe Personal Injury Lawyer
New Mexico's capital, Santa Fe, is well-known for its pueblo architecture and for being a thriving cultural center. Artists have been flocking to Santa Fe for decades to draw, paint and sculpt the natural beauty around them. You can see many of their works in galleries throughout the city, as well as in New Mexico Museum of Art and the Georgia O'Keeffe Museum. Along with tourists, Santa Fe also attracts many scientists and high-tech entrepreneurs to the city's thriving technological sector.
Unfortunately, accidents sometimes happen in Santa Fe. Perhaps you were in a rear-end collision or other car accident, or a truck accident on I-25. Or maybe you sustained an injury in a motorcycle accident on Route 84 or a slip-and fall accident at a local business at Cerrillos Road. Whatever the circumstances of your accident, you need a personal injury lawyer. The Szantho Law Firm can fight for the compensation you deserve.
An attorney who knows how to get results
Raised in Santa Fe, attorney Andras Szantho knows the area and understands how the legal system works here. A former prosecutor in the First Judicial District Attorney’s office (which covers three counties, including Santa Fe County), attorney Szantho has extensive courtroom experience and knows what evidence to look for to build a strong legal case. As your attorney, he will aggressively represent you in negotiations with the insurance companies and, if necessary, before a jury. Our legal team will carefully investigate the circumstances surrounding your accident and tirelessly search for evidence proving that you were hurt due to someone else’s negligent behavior.
When you’ve been hurt in an accident, recovering financial compensation should be a simple process. You get the medical treatment you need. The insurance company determines the damages you have suffered and issues payment. That’s the way it’s supposed to work but the reality is far more complicated.
In reality, the negligent party that caused your accident often won’t accept responsibility and denies doing anything wrong. The insurance company may question the extent of your injuries or blame you for causing the accident. Why? Because they want to pay you as little as possible to protect their profits.
We fight for your rights
Attorney Szantho knows the tactics used by insurance companies and doesn’t put up with them. He builds strong cases that hold negligent parties accountable and force insurance companies to take your claim seriously. This often convinces them to start settlement negotiations.
We aren’t interested in making quick deals that help insurance companies save money. Any resolution of your case has to be one that meets your needs. This includes compensation for all current and future medical expenses related to your injury, any lost wages if you couldn’t work, and other damages, such as pain and suffering.
If you were injured in a Santa Fe accident, it’s important to talk to an experienced lawyer as soon as possible. By law, you have three years from the date of your accident to take legal action. Over time, evidence can be lost or destroyed, and the memories of witnesses can fade. So, the sooner we can start working on your case, the better.
