Albuquerque Attorneys
Introduction

Albuquerque Attorneys handling cases throughout New Mexico in the area of personal injury and wrongful death.   The bulk of our cases are in the area of medical malpractice with auto accidents and premises liability (slip and fall accidents) following as close seconds. 

We handle other personal injury and wrongful death claims as well such as work related injuries.  However, due to the New Mexico Workers’ Compensation Act’s exclusive remedy provisions, we handle only third party work related personal injury claims. 

We have successfully handled hundreds of personal injury and wrongful death cases across New Mexico since the firm opened in 2001.  Our attorneys have over 50 years of combined experience.   

We are honored to serve injury and wrongful death victims and their families.  We are grateful for the trust and confidence that our clients place in us and we strive to earn that trust each and every day with each and every client.

We offer a free initial case review in our areas of practice.  We strive to promptly review cases during the initial review stage.  Once this is done, we then do our best to fully evaluate a case.  Full case evaluations vary in time depending upon the area of practice.   

For instance, medical malpractice cases take quite some time to evaluate due to the necessity of an expert medical review of the file.  Auto accidents, premises liability and work related injuries can be evaluated fairly quickly. 

In addition to our statewide personal injury and wrongful death practice, Collins & Collins, P.C. also handles criminal and DWI defense, and divorce and family law matters in the Albuquerque and Rio Rancho metropolitan area. 

Collins & Collins, P.C. is conveniently located next to the Metropolitan, District and Federal court buildings in downtown Albuquerque .   Please feel free to contact us online through our website or by phone at 505.242.5958.

Our website and blogs have a great deal of information on our practice areas as well as the free case review and case evaluation processes

This is in reference to the Washington Post article on possible free care to fix the the injuries related to medical error. The CMS list is relatively short and relates primarily to what are considered "never events". However, there are many preventable medical errors that are not considered "never events" and many would not necessarily suggest medical negligence.

John Felton was driving to his brother’s house in Dayton, Ohio, on a recent night when he noticed a police car tailing him. Not wanting to give the officer any excuse to pull him over, Felton, who is black and was visiting Dayton from Michigan, tried to drive extra carefully....

Auto accidents are far too common. Yest they remain stressful, confusing and frustrating for those thrust into the legal claims process.

Perhaps the worst of it is dealing with insurance companies some of which can be anything but fair and responsible.

It is important to understand and exert your rights if you are to have any hope of full and fair compensation for your injuries.

There is a widely held belief that the medical community is under siege from frivolous medical malpractice lawsuits. Nothing could be further from the truth. The fact is there are many well orchestrated obstacles to protect the medical community against harm caused to innocent patients and families. Take HR 1470 for instance which basically hides a provision deep within its text stating that scientifically and medically created medical standards should not apply in the case of a medical malpractice suit.

Assuming crime prevention and rehabilitation are the goals of incarceration, education and preparation for life after prison is a must.

Of course, a skeptic might say that incarceration is really about money for prison industries in which case return customers are a must.
Inmates who took college-level courses while in prison saw a 16 percent drop in their risk of reincarceration.

The recent news on indictments of a VA official for falsification of medical records, the past revelations of destruction of medical records, and the ongoing issues with interminable delays in treatment all raise interesting statute of limitations issues under the "discovery rule".
