Your case deserves to be heard, no matter what.

Many of the places we go and the spaces we inhabit each day are owned by the State of New Mexico and  the county or cities in which we live. If you're hurt by the State, County, City, or Schools, your case is subject to the NM Tort Claims Act which includes a notice requirement and a different statute of limitations.

If the negligent on-the-job behavior of a state employee causes another person physical injury or loss of life the victim has the right to seek restitution from the government in certain circumstances under the New Mexico Tort Claims Act. 

Examples of claims that can be brought against the State of New Mexico can include:

  • Medical malpractice or birth injury at state run medical facilities
  • Car accidents caused by an on-duty public employee
  • Slip and fall at a state run building
  • Police brutality and inmate abuse
  • Negligence of public employees working in construction
  • Wrongful death as a result of negligence of the New Mexico government or their employees

These accidents can lead to painful injuries and expensive medical bills.  If you or a loved one has been injured as the result of negligence from the New Mexico state government or their employees, you need to call a New Mexico Government Liability lawyer today to help you get the compensation you deserve.  In cases against New Mexico public entities, it is significant that notice of the negligence or conduct giving rise to a claim must be given to the particular public entity within ninety days of the date of the loss in most circumstances. In addition, in cases against public entities, the statute of limitations is two years from the date of the incident, as opposed to the usual statute of limitations involving negligence cases, which is, three years.  So do not delay, contact a lawyer today to help you with your case. 

How these concerns apply to your case is important to talk to a lawyer about immediately.
