Personal Injury Attorney in El Paso
An Attorney You Can Trust
Life can be unpredictable. Some of life’s surprises fill our lives with joy and are welcomed: an adult child’s recent engagement or the birth of a new grandchild. Other surprises, however, can turn our worlds upside-down in an instant: a fall from a ladder at work or other workplace accident, a serious car wreck while taking the kids to sports practice, or a bicycling injury crash while exercising or relaxing in El Paso. Any one of these latter types of “surprises” can instantly leave you and your loved ones with catastrophic injuries that cause debilitating pain, require you to miss weeks – if not months or longer – from work, and negatively impact your ability to enjoy the activities you once found pleasurable.
If you or a loved one find yourself injured in an El Paso personal injury accident, the Aranda Law Firm may be able to assist you in your recovery. While our team cannot undo the accident or help your injuries heal faster, we may be able to assist you in recovering financial compensation for your losses and injuries from the person or parties responsible for causing your injury accident.

Do I Have a Personal Injury Case?
You may have a personal injury case and be able to recover compensation from another person or party if that person or party’s careless or reckless behavior caused your injuries and losses. A person or party is said to be negligent – and thus civilly responsible for the harm his or her behavior causes – if the person or party’s behavior deviates from the duty or standard of care that a reasonable person in that individual’s position would have exercised. Examples of negligent behavior include:
- Driving recklessly, driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs, or failing to keep one’s attention on the roadway;
- Failing to provide proper safety training and safe, operable equipment to employees;
- Failing to produce a product that is safe for ordinary, intended use without providing proper warning to the consumer;
- Failing to keep one’s property in a reasonably safe condition or failing to warn guests on the property of hazards and conditions that could threaten their safety.
Determining whether you have a personal injury case is best left to an experienced Texas or New Mexico personal injury lawyer who can evaluate the specific facts and circumstances of your case and provide you with detailed, personalized legal counsel regarding your rights and options.
Compensation Available for Personal Injury Victims
If the other person or party is determined to have caused your injury, you may be entitled to recover monetary damages to assist you in meeting the debts and expenses you are facing as a result of your accident. This can include damages to help you:
- Pay medical expenses, hospital bills, and ongoing treatment costs;
- Compensate you and your family for time you missed from work while recovering from your injuries;
- Pay for prescription medication and/or assistive devices you may need;
- Address your mental pain, suffering, and the loss of enjoyment of life you experienced; and/or
- Other economic and noneconomic losses that are attributable to your injuries and the other party’s careless behavior.
It is important that your case is evaluated and your losses (both past and anticipated future losses) are properly calculated. In a Texas and/or New Mexico personal injury case, it is very difficult to reopen an already settled case to request additional compensation. Therefore, it is critical that you request an appropriate amount of compensation. The Aranda Law Firm can help you accomplish this crucial task.
Why Retain the Services of the Aranda Law Firm?
Following a personal injury accident in El Paso or elsewhere, deciding to hire an attorney to represent your interests does not always seem to be an important issue. However, Texas and New Mexico’s laws do not give personal injury victims much time in which to file a personal injury suit and seek compensation (Texas gives victims two years from the date of their injury accidents to file their suit; New Mexico gives victims three years from the date of their injury accidents).
