Representing the Injured in Artesia
As one of the smaller cities in New Mexico with a population just shy of 12,000, Artesia is often regarded as a sleepy town that’s most well-known for its three biggest industry employers: agriculture, dairy, and oil and gas.
But while the city may be small, and quiet for the most part, those who live and work in Artesia are just as at risk of suffering negligence-based personal injuries and workplace injuries, as are those who live in other, larger cities in New Mexico.
Our personal injury attorneys at the law offices of Tawney, Acosta & Chaparro P.C., have served as legal counsel for those in Artesia and other cities throughout the state.
If you have been injured or believe that your rights as an employee have been breached, we can help.
Artesia Oil Field Injuries
Injuries sustained in an oilfield can be severe, often resulting in loss of life or limb. Long hours and treacherous working conditions lead to frequent, life-altering consequences.
If you or a loved one sustained injuries or died due to an injury in an oil field near Artesia, you may be able to recover compensation.
Artesia Semi Truck Accidents
18-wheeler accidents are often much more traumatic than a typical car accident. Because the trucks are much larger than a passenger car, they have the potential to cause a lot more damage.
But truck accidents can often be complicated, as multiple parties have the potential to be at fault.
If you were injured in a truck accident, it’s important to speak with an attorney to discuss how you can be compensated for your injuries.
Product Liability Claims
A branch of personal injury law, product liability rules hold that manufacturers of products have a duty to ensure that the products are reasonably safe for consumer use.
If a product causes injury to a consumer, the manufacturer (or anyone along the manufacture or distribution chain) may be held liable for damages.
Workplace Injury Claims
If you are harmed while working in Artesia, you have the right to just compensation.
When you call our law offices, we will help you to explore the options that may be available to you, including filing a workers’ compensation claim, a third-party liability claim, or both.
