Eric Ortiz, an experienced and passionate personal injury lawyer, takes a unique approach to personal injury. While he not only prepares each and every case for trial to maximize recovery, he also focuses heavily on actually being able to collect. In New Mexico many drivers carry a limited amount of insurance and Eric Ortiz always looks into recovering from the driver personally by running asset checks and obtaining a financial picture of the driver through private investigation.
Our experience in commercial litigation and bankruptcy gives us the personal injury law expertise to pursue the maximum recovery available not only against drivers personally but also in pursuing corporations, or insurance companies where there are complicated coverage issues.
Finally, there is never a risk to you if we take your case on contingency; we never charge you anything for our work, costs we have advanced, or taxes unless we receive adequate proceeds to cover them. Many firms force you to be responsible for all hard costs and gross receipts tax, even if they do not recover as much as they expect to. This can result in situations where you end up owing money to your attorneys when all is said and done if the hard-costs and gross receipts taxes are greater than what they recover for you; we never charge you for more than what is recovered on a contingency fee matter even if that means our office takes a loss. Moreover, many firms will always charge a 40% rate on contingency fee cases, even on simple matters that they can resolve without going to court. We charge a sliding percentage on contingency fee cases which we base on the complexity of a case; we often charge rates as low as 25%. This will frequently result in thousands of additional dollars in your pocket.
