Proving Negligence in a Personal Injury Lawsuit

Under New Mexico law, the plaintiff (injured party) bears the burden of proof in a personal injury lawsuit. It’s imperative to consult an experienced lawyer who can fortify your claim with compelling evidence and establish liability. 

To successfully prove negligence in a personal injury claim, the plaintiff must establish four core elements, including: 

  • The defendant owed you a duty of care. You must establish that the defendant owed you a duty of care. For example, in an oilfield accident, you may argue that your employer has a duty to provide adequate safety training and adhere to industry safety standards.
  • The defendant breached their duty. Next, you must show that the offending party violated their duty of care by acting negligently. For instance, if your oilfield employer fails to provide adequate safety equipment or conduct mandatory inspections, this may be considered a breach.   
  • The defendant’s negligence directly caused your injuries. Then, you must establish the defendant’s negligence as the “proximate cause” of your injuries. It’s crucial to work with a qualified attorney who can support your claim with relevant evidence. 
  • The defendant’s negligence resulted in compensatory damages. To have a valid personal injury claim, you must prove that the accident resulted in compensatory injuries (damages) to recover compensation from the defendant. 

Recoverable Damages in Personal Injury Claims

Depending on the type and cause of the accident, various damages may be recoverable in a personal injury claim. Remember, securing experienced representation from a qualified attorney is paramount to maximizing the value of your claim and seeking full damages in any personal injury lawsuit. 

There are three primary types of recoverable damages in personal injury cases, including: 

  1. Economic damages: These compensate for financial losses that can be quantified into monetary amounts, such as lost earnings, medical expenses, treatment costs, loss of earning capacity, and property damage.
  2. Non-economic damages: These compensate for non-financial losses that aren’t easily quantified into monetary amounts, such as pain and suffering, emotional distress, loss of enjoyment of life, scarring and disfigurement, and loss of consortium. 
  3. Punitive damages: These are only awarded in rare cases involving extreme malice or negligence. Rather than compensating the victim, punitive damages are meant to punish the defendant and deter similar behaviors in the future.
