Lawyers For Injured Crime Victims In New Mexico
If you or a loved one is injured during a crime, you may think that the only recourse you have against the person or people who caused your injuries is through the criminal justice system. However, in New Mexico, civil remedies may be available to victims of crimes, just as they may be to those who are injured in accidents caused by negligence.
We specialize in representing crime victims, assisting them through the criminal prosecution, filing civil lawsuits on their behalf, and helping them heal to move forward with their lives.
Experienced Crime Victim Attorneys
We at Martinez, Hart, Thompson & Sanchez, P.C., have been representing victims of crime for decades. Two of our attorneys, F. Michael Hart and Kelly Stout Sanchez, focus their practice on this area and have been longstanding members of The National Crime Victim Bar Association (NCVBA). We have the experience, expertise and sensitivity to represent people after they have gone through the most terrible event of their life.
At Martinez, Hart, Thompson & Sanchez, P.C., our attorneys have a passion for helping victims injured during crimes. Too frequently, even when a criminal case against an assailant or abuser is successful, the victim is left with overwhelming medical bills and psychological trauma, or is unable to return to work due to serious injuries or permanent disabilities. Many times, it was not just the criminal offender who caused the harm, but it was the corporation or entity that allowed the crime to happen. When we file a lawsuit to hold these people and corporations accountable, at the same time we provide compassion and sensitivity to our clients.
We have successfully pursued the following types of cases:
- Apartment complex rape arising from negligent security
- Sexual abuse of children by teachers
- Rape of child by peer at residential treatment centers
- Death of child from physical abuse in foster care
- Sexual assault by masseuse
- Sexual abuse by doctors and therapists
